Discovery Network: Remove racist programming ("Gypsy" Sisters) from their subsidiary, The Learning Channel.

The American Romani community continues to suffer from misrepresentation in American media. Such racist stereotyping and false claims about the ethnic population and their culture has a very real impact on Romani living in America. In a nation that fails to recognize us as an ethnic minority & continues to stigmatize Romani persons, any such program is a severe threat to the well-being of the more than one million Romani who currently live in the United States of America.

The program not only uses an ethnic slur within the title, but exploits the American Romanichal community. The individuals involved in the show are not part of any Romanichal community within America & the show in no way represents Romani, Romany, or Romanichal culture. 

Please help us to have this show cancelled.
