Hello,

Yes we are. Have you ever gone into a dermatoligists office and seen a sign that said "Remove your freckles". I have, that would be like saying "Remove your skin color", it comes with being a red head or having the red headed gene. We are (by far) the worlds minority, an article out recently stated that by the year 2100 there will be no more red headed people, due to the vast majority of people interbreeding.(I am all for it mind you, but that is the reason). We are only 10% of the population, there are no other races in this world that there are so few of unless you count a tribe in the jungle that has had no outside influences. I am proud to be one of two red headed grand children of 24. We are rare. Please pass this along to your red headed friends/family members, SAVE a clipping of your hair, pass it down to generations, in 2100 it could be worth something.:o)

Oh yea...that's why people DYE thier hair red. They WANT to be descriminated against...
'Remove your freckles' is just an offer, some people don't like them. I have them and my hair is naurally almost black. odd, yea I know, but my blonde friend has them too. My other friend has red hair and freckles, and she loves her red hair and everyone envies her for it. In a world where everyone tries to be the same, why not be different?

A Blonde, brunette and a redhead...and who gets the short end of the stick in that joke?

Good point!!!! I know so many women that have dyed their hair red (including myself) but like you said, I guess they were just doing it to be "discriminated" against

yes, I happen to be one of the "red headded people" the color isn't acually red though, its usually a combination of reds, browns, golds, blonds, and other colors, My hair combination all together makes an auborny color.
When I was younger (current age 14) Kids called me a red haired or an orange haired freak. It really really sucked.

I'm a redhead -- actually flaming orange -- and I always got teased about it by kids at school until I got to college. Everything changed then! Everyone thought I had the most gorgeous hair and I was asked to model, and to show up to model for "color artists" etc. I'm quite glad I'm a carrot top. But, no it wasn't much fun as a child. I can only guess that it's worse for boys.

Many US Presidents have had red hair. Calvin Coolidge. Andy Jackson. John Quincy Adams. Thomas Jefferson. JFK had reddish hair, too.
The idea that redheads will become extinct or that red hair will be gone are both nonsense.

I agree that people discriminate against us red heads. Number one when I was growing up, my mom made me wear hand me downs, and they belonged to my BROTHER!!!! My dad divorced my mom and married a beautiful blonde. She was so mean to me. She constantly picked at me. One day we all went for a walk. She got hit by a train!!! My dad never forgave me. He hates me to this day. All I said was "cool" look at the deer tracks, I didnt expect her to hop along so excitedly, next thing we knew she had been hit.

All children are born innocent, they learn to discriminate from society, not from their parents. Ever been to an airport? Who gets dirty looks there?

Never?

Thomas Jefferson was a Red Head, and was probably the most intelligent P.O.T.U.S.A. ever!

not to second guess or question your experiences, but kids will tease the heck out of each other, be it hair/skin color, weight, etc
