The TDDPirate was red-haired (what the English call “ginger”) at his childhood. He remembers people being positive about his hair color.
He was startled by the news items Red-headed family forced to move after ‘ginger’ hate campaign and Is gingerism as bad as racism?.
Turns out that in England, red-haired people are singled out for teasing and harassment. And this is not an April Fool Day story either.
