The Gipsy Comix! strips depict the clothing and symbols of the majority population as expressions of rebuke or acceptance within the community. Most of the texts are in Finnish, the others in English. The comic strips often use irony to address the prejudice, hypocrisy, racism, ignorance and fear of ‘otherness’ among the majority population; at the same time, they criticise the lack of tolerance towards ‘otherness’ within the Romani community. In many of the comic strips, the Romani community rebukes a woman wearing sunglasses and a black jacket.
