I would like to talk about something else other than who is a hypocrit
Ad Hominims are of course pointless. I'll stick with him being a hypocrit on this one point at least, and you can stick with him not being a hypocrit, and move on to discussing the argument this thread is about. Well I would but I don't see what kind of argument there actually is here, considering we'd all agree that kick-a-ginger day is wrong (though perhaps for different reasons) and the connection between the show and the ginger kicking is manufactured.
I am not sure what the solution is to stop it.
Good to see someoen actually admiting they arn't an expert in every issue that pops up. I can't help myself speculating possible sollutions but I know none of them are likely to be any good.
I like SS, but I am going to be honest about what I think
I have no problem with you being honest about what you think... I was just being honest about what I thought too. I'd kinda like the people who come to this site to be the kind of person who can take a joke; I'm not sure what the kind of person who can't is doing watching a comedy like south park and I don't see what they'd add to this site.
he made it very clear he was a "first and last time poster".
Which is why we should probably stop debating his trolling and giving him more attention than he deserves. I'm kinda entertained by bitchery *gets popcorn* but it's best if it's between reulat posters rather than one timers and the rest of the site. Best to stop talking about geekman.
Because they're a minority group? And people pick on differences? Though the anti-celtic thing could play a part... I hear there was a lot of anti-irish stuff in america, and a lot of scottish/irish people are ginger so...Does anyone know how that form of predujuice started?

Death will take us so don't fight it. Become it and lean to win.

The earliest reference I can find is to the Potato Famine that brought many Irish people, many with red hair, to the United States. Irish men would have sex with women out of wedlock and the women would have kids with red hair, but then the mothers would marry non-Irish men. The red-haired kids became the non-Irish man's stepchildren. They would naturally be beat, since they were not the man's children. It's the Cinderella effect.

Most biases I know of come from things that happened historically that turned certain people against eachother or they are due to religion. And there is that stereotype about blondes being stupid..But what I don't get is why anyone would have a problem with redheads. Does anyone know how that form of predujuice started?
Redheaded step child line was based on an old belief that children were born with redhair as a mark of a bastard birth. So if your wife had a red headed child she was cheating on you to cause it.
