Kick a Ginger Day!

From Calgary, Canada:

Thirteen high school students in Calgary have been suspended after a red-headed teen was beaten because of the colour of his hair….

“The fact of the matter is from a policing perspective, it is a hate crime, and this individual was targeted because of the fact they have red hair,” said police spokesman Kevin Brookwell.

The attacks came on a day promoted by a Facebook group as Kick a Ginger Day. The Facebook group urged members to kick people with red hair — referred to as ginger kids — on Nov. 20.

The phenomenon originated with South Park, an animated TV show. An episode of the satirical show that originally aired in 2005 presented red-haired people as evil and soulless.

  4. They want to be like Eric Cartman, apparently.

    It was different in the old days. Then, the kids who were stupid enough to imitate everything they saw on TV simply jumped out windows playing Superman.

  5. “An episode of the satirical show that originally aired in 2005 presented red-haired people as evil and soulless.”

    That is so wrong. The show revealed the Truth! That ginger kids really ARE evil and souless… and a threat to us all.

  6. This is so bad. I have always wanted to be a red head because it looks pretty. It is so rude that people can disscriminate red heads. Im blonde so if they do that to red heads why not to blondes or brunettes, whats the dufference? If anyone i know is doing this then you know that i will beat the crap out of them because it is so bad and i will excude anyone who is doing this in my life. Anyways if you are reading this and you support this then please stop because it is so bad, rude and so high hateretted. So STOP and take in that we are all different and no one can do anything about it.

    cause blonds are cute and you can get them to do things….so of course you would not kick a blond.

    come sit next to me and I will explain it slowly….
