Family forced to flee just for being ginger

#1
A family of six have fled two homes after enduring a vicious hate campaign, apparently prompted by the colour of their hair.

Kevin and Barbara Chapman say that anti-ginger prejudice has led to their property being vandalised and their four youngest children being subjected to a litany of cruel taunts, verbal abuse and bullying.

The Chapmans and their children, who are from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, have a blaze of red hair which, they claim, has reduced them to living like fugitives in the city.

Is it wrong that I'm sat here dying of laughter at this?

It's not that I don't feel bad for them that they've been horribly victimised - just something about the concept that sets me off.

if a ginger headed person was walking down a country lane on any part of the ulster border in the late 80's with a parcel under their arm next to a chap from the middle east, who would you of p.checked first? :D

Being one of the "Pissy Twiglet Brigade" myself I do feel for this family. However you have two choices, you either take the abuse to heart and curl up into a ball blubbing or you develop a thicker skin (all be it very pale and freckly!). I believe that New Liarbour and their PC stormtroopers will very soon see this as a new battleground for ruining this country. If that happens I will be sueing. :p

I find it difficult to believe the 'only' reason for their persecution is the colour of their hair! Still, what do you expect from Geordie's - a species that didn't exist until a Sweaty fucked a pig! 8O

Isn't there a nature reserve north of the border where they are protected? With a little training, they could be released into the wilds of Glasgow and flourish in their natural enviroment.

Can we start a no 10 petition to save the gingers?

I personally dont see why people have anything against people with ginger hair its a very unique colour and they should be treated with respect. My partner as ginger hair so does some of my male friends and i personally think they are quite handsome .

Do I detect a whiff of twiglets from your location, devex? :D

Concentrated hydrogen peroxide should help...

I live oop North and this case has been featured on the local television news. It would appear that the family are the aggressors in this. Certainly the father would fit nicely into Deliverance. It sounds like a case of honking to get another house
