So that woman on video beating her child...
WAIT! Don't delete this yet.
Something I found interesting was that at least one news article
mentioned that she was an Irish Traveller
. Apparently there are ten thousand Irish Travellers in the USA but little is known about them academically
, as a result, they have developed a rather negative stereotype, primarily as con artists
. Probably one of the only nomadic groups left in modern times, these gypsies
are a discriminated race
in native Ireland.
