Why pick on people like me?
HAD a letter the other day that speaks for itself: "I'm writing about an issue which I feel very strongly about.
"I am a young man and have ginger hair and I'm often called names and people take the mickey out of my hair colour.
"I don't want to stir up a hornet's nest, but if I was a black person and people called me names it would be classed as racist and the offenders could be arrested for it.
"Well, is there a difference between the colour of someone's hair and the colour of someone's skin and why is it so socially acceptable for people and socalled comedians on TV to mock people with ginger hair?"
I thought long and hard about this letter and they're right, aren't they?
