Yeah, okay ---- now you've got another crackpot theory to justify why it happens. You still don't live it, and have no idea of the offensive behavior it brings out in others. And unless you do, or have, again, why do you feel entitled to comment on its history? Would you do that with other minorities?
I really don't care how benign Marah's reasons were for her alleged historical explanation. And yes, we all know about her dual citizenship in two discriminated-against groups. I think it's pretty hard to avoid, if you read any of her posts.
So, Marah, why not continue your focus in that direction, okay? Oh, and thanks for the quotes around half-Jewish. I appreciate the distinction.
I find it rather frightening that people can single out a group with a certain hair color and threaten them. This is not the first time I have heard of 'ginger attacks' in England. It happens too in America, although the attacks may not be so extreme there are judgmental calls on redheads. In school, and my niece is having this problems occur, I was singled out. Not for abuse, but not to play with others. I was the odd child out due to having red hair. The worst part was I was practically the only child in my entire school that had red hair. Some people just get so brainwashed I'm sure even they don't even know where this hatred of 'gingers' have come from.....where did it come from?
