    You are either not understanding what your 'teacher' is saying...or your 'teacher' is high.

    All 3 non-African genomes share the same (or at the very least - a similiar) proportion of the Neanderthal sequences...and it don't matter if you've got red hair or black hair or purple hair. Besides...it is estimated that only 1-2% of Neanderthals had reddish hair. And on top of all of that...there is no scientific evidence that Neanderthals and early humans ever interbred. That the similiarity between Neanderthals and non-African humans is most likely to be attributed to an earlier shared ancestor. But don't take my word for it.

    It's okay Chana.. Maybe one day we'll get out of our poor, unfortunate situations and rise up to belittle others and make ourselves feel better at their expense. (But probably not. Luckily there's prescriptions to fix our low self esteem for when we realize we'll just be like the rest of the world.)

    At either rate, Gingers aren't a very common breed to begin with.. so it makes sense that they're not in high demand. Humans are the opposite of pets -- People want something as close to normal as possible. (I.E. So it looks like THEY had the baby, even if they can't.) With pets, they can be more experimental, and thus exotics are in higher demand and cost more.

    Being one with red hair that isn't SO red, I get the annoying aspects of being 'discovered' to be a ginger from time to time, because some people are color blind or something.

    I'd love to have a red-headed child.. and ginger men are just like any other type of man--some look great, others do not.

    Look, I really think we're starting to get off track here. How the ginger-thing looks is completely subjective and doesn't really tell us anything meaningful. What we need to decide here is whether or not gingers are really people.

    The whole Ginger meme really irritates me, I can't put my finger on why. Probably the same reason jokes about Canadians or Poles don't connect with me. I grew up in a 80% Hispanic town, we only had white person jokes, it seemed silly to specialize.

    I apologize if my statements seemed directed at you personally. I honestly didn’t mean them to come out that way. I admit though…that I thought your joke was lame – absolutely belittling to an entire population of people. Yet it appeared that your joke stemmed from misinformation provided to you by your instructor and so I didn’t know what to make of it as I work in the same field. Perhaps it is the case that instructors at other institutions are able to make jokes/statements like that - but I wouldn’t be able to – nor would I want to. Especially when considering Anthropology’s long and ugly history of attempting to link specific modern-day populations to Neanderthals, etc.

    Are you finally admitting that you didn't understand the joke? LOL.

    nothing's funny when it's broken down and analyzed to death.

    and i don't care about it being directed towards me or not, it's a shitty, elitist assumption that if someone's teaching at a community college instead of a university they're incompetent or don't know what they're talking about. especially since a large number of teachers at my school used to work at uc berkeley and chose/prefer the community college.

    anyway, sorry if my comment offended any gingers. y'all have it hard enough already.

    and your comments about high school and community college teachers wasn't? My high school English teacher had a Masters degree at that time and eventually went on to teach at a major university, not because of the prestige, but because she felt increasingly stifled in her creativity in the classroom by legal changes in the public school system.

    Seriously, you made a classist assumption, in case you're unaware of why what YOU said in reply was equally belittling to an entire population of people...and what's more is that you were SERIOUS.
