Default Stop discriminating against Travellers!!!

DNA study: Travellers a distinct ethnicity
By Jennifer Hough
TUESDAY, MAY 31, 2011
THE first DNA analysis of the Travelling community has proven that it is a distinct ethnic minority who separated from the settled community between 1,000 and 2,000 years ago, experts have claimed.

According to genetics expert Jim Wilson from the University of Edinburgh, though it is clear Travellers diverged from the settled community, it is not clear why.

He said Travellers are a distinct genetic group as different from the settled Irish as Icelanders are from Norwegians.

The revelation was made on RTÉ’s documentary, Blood of the Travellers, and will put further pressure on the Government to recognise Travellers as a distinct group of people.

In March, the UN Committee for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination expressed concern at the state’s "persistent refusal" to recognise Travellers as an ethnic minority, and pointed out that they satisfied the internationally recognised criteria for such a group.

So they want to be treated the same because they're different?
