Jason Mazzone wonders:
This, I suspect, is because my students have watched the South Park episode, “Ginger Kids,” in which Eric Cartman announces that redheads suffer from “Gingervitis” and have no souls.
When, however, I poll the class to ask who should be on the list and who off it, there is always an overwhelmingly majority against including redheads/gingers on the footnote 4 list.
But perhaps my class majority is too hasty. Today at the Yale Law School there is the following event sponsored by the American Constitution Society:
Are Redheads a Suspect Class?
Are redheads protected by the 14th Amendment? Join ACS for a lively student discussion on the reach of the Equal Protection Clause, moderated by a very special guest.
How could someone with a soul be discrete and insular?
