Episódio (ou Capítulo)/ Ciganos

Episódio (é usado como adjetivo associado com a palavra ou frase antecedente "Kenyan Asian"); Roma = Ciganos

Este texto parece estar falando a respeito da persecução dos Ciganos em Kenya e comparando-a com a perseguição dos Judéus.

O episodio "Kenyan Asian" / Roma

The artcle in http://www.carf.demon.co.uk/feat44.html, refers to "The "Kenyan Asian" episode of 1968, when Asians with British passports expelled by Kenya were refused automatic right of entry to Britain" and also to "the Roma from eastern Europe. During the communist era of centralisation, minority cultures and ethnic differences were suppressed but were, at least, part of the citizenry. With the collapse of communism, however, they became outcasts, without employment, without access to full rights, discriminated against by state agencies and persecuted by untamed populist racial terror. By any yardstick, the Roma are a persecuted group like the Jews were earlier"

It does not define "the Roma" as being the gypsies.

I would leave it as it is "os Roma".
