Another less than 1%

I recently saw an article about “ginger discrimination” in the UK. Apparently the largest proportion of red heads reside in the United Kingdom, and they feel discriminated against. My first response was, “are you kidding me”? Maybe it’s different here, but to even consider the notion that I’ve been discriminated against for being a redhead is preposterous. Anyway, I searched around a little and this is what I found:
Less than 1% of the human population has red hair
EKK! It’s another 1%…..I’m always the one that falls in the less than 1% category. Want to know more interesting facts about red hair?

    interesting, in my genetics class at the Y, they told us that red hair is dominant. But how can that be with only 1% red? hmmmm…

    Very interesting information on red heads. I think being the 1% must be something with you. I have never mentioned how many unusual things seem to happen to me but when people say, ” that will never happened to you or quote those stats” I get worried too! I think your hair, your kids hair, is stunning! Lucky you on that one!
