Kick A Ginger Day

Updated on May 3, 2014

Kick A Ginger Day? Really?

First of all I would like to say I have no use for bullies. I believe that anyone who has to overpower someone weaker then them is not capable of taking care of themselves and for whatever reason, has issues of their own. Bullies are usually people with problems and most find it easier to take it out on the people they know won’t put up a fight. Do not encourage this day!

Monkey See Monkey Do

 I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “Monkey See Monkey Do”

And you know that, “If it’s on TV it’s got to be true.”  Yeah right.

Where did Kick A Ginger Day Start?

It was all started with a little harmless skit on the popular show “Southpark” back in 2005. Then the notion landed one day on the popular social network “Facebook.”

I did a Google search on Kick a Ginger Day. I was surprised at the shocking amount of results that came back.

The Emotional Pain

 The effects of being bullied are damaging and can have life long lasting effects. Violence is wrong. Bullying is unacceptable and these senseless trends must be put to a stop.

      Well "red" thanks for stopping by. Im really glad that no-one has turned this day against you. I think it started out as a joke but when it quickly got out of hand, well..., that's where the problem started. It's awful that this crime has come to life. I feel bad for the ones who have gotten hurt, or worse.

      Yeah, It's just not what I'd call a good time. I wouldn't go to school on this day if I was a readhead. When I was in school there were only a few red headed people who would have been up against hundreds. We didn't have this when I went to school. Never heard of. Besides, we had better things to do than that kinda crap. Thanks for stopping by....Phil.
