LOL, you are putting the Vlachs in the same category as the Roma.

A lot of Vlachs have fought and died for Macedonia. The level of intermarriage between Macedonians and Armani ("Vlachs") is quite high, and the relations are pretty good. In effect, there are no differences betweent the two. I speak from personal experience. Many "Vlachs" today, as an "ethnic minority", no longer have 'traditional' names/surnames, few know the language - but have Macedonian names, are Macedonian Orthodox Christians, and speak only Macedonian (the Vlachs received "new names" from the state after World War II, i.e. -ski, -ev endings). They declare themselves as such in the census.

Random choice example: Gjoko Dineski

Also, the number of people who have some/partial Vlach ancestry is much higher than observed in the census numbers (people simply declare themselves as Macedonians).
