Gingers have friends

Sean Fitzgerald | Tuesday, March 1, 2011

In Monday’s Ice Breaker, Tierney Roche declared that Harry Potter was unrealistic because she does not believe a ginger can have two friends. As a ginger I take great offense to this.  We gingers have battled with the sun for centuries.  We survived the Potato Famine. Throughout history, we’ve been subjected to discrimination and fearful prejudice. We have been declared soulless. But today, I will take no more. I along with the ginger community would like to dispel myths about the ginger being.

First, despite what South Park says, we do have souls. Yes, I know it is hard to believe, but it is true. We are just like you.

Finally, we do have friends. I can name them off for you. There’s Mike, Nate and uhhh that girl that sits next to me in philosophy class.

I would like to end with a new idea. I would like to start the club “SPF 100,” the club for gingers and others to learn about the ginger culture and the pain that we have suffered throughout the years. I hope you all have been educated today, so go out and hug a ginger, we need all the love we can get.
