Why Are Redheads Being Erased In Media?

What do Ariel from The Little Mermaid, Annie from Annie or April O’Neil from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles all have in common? All of these characters (and many more) were originally red headed white females who have been erased and replaced with blacks in recent iterations. What may appear to be a harmless trend intended to create more representations of non white characters, in actuality is just race-baiting soft skull progressive guilt that's not only divisive, but counterproductive.

What’s even more ironic is that redheads only make up 1-2% of the global population and so they're also a minority compared to the black population, which is 13% of the American population.

As a stunning Auburn Haired Beauty myself  *cough* all this "Ginger Genocide" troubles me.  You tell me, where would we be without all the famous Redheads of Western Tradition?? And how will they be portrayed in the future?

Like Queen Elizabeth I, who drove the Roman Legions out of Britain?  Or Galileo, who discovered the Sun?  Or General George Armstrong Custer who defeated the British at Gettysburg.  And would we even know who Elvis Presley was if not for him appearing with Ann Margret as she danced seductively around him in the movies?  Or Winston Churchill, best known as the man who taught the world the fine art of smoking cigars in the bathtub. Or the power of Red Hair as in Tina Louise keeping the men of Gilligan's Island so sexually frustrated to a point they couldn't even fix a fucking hole in the boat! 

Will these great Gingers also be washed from history and replace with POC? 

In a recent story in the news about race-swap, fans of the original animated Disney movie 'The Little Mermaid' questioned why redheaded Princess Ariel had to be race-swapped. Of course they were called Racist for even bring it up. But the original source material, the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale is Danish in origin, and though Disney’s animated Ariel does have red hair, Gingers are the most common in northern and western European countries.

Once you notice it in one place, it’s hard not to see it everywhere. It’s impossible to ignore the fact that prominent red-haired characters most often than any other to fall victim to the diversity police.

We’re supposed to smile and nod when we read that white people should be "eradicated," that we’re "parasites" that need to be permanently "cured," that whiteness should be abolished, that we should be killed in a genocide, or that our death "will mean liberation for all." To that I say "Fuck You"
Instead of addressing actual inequality, Hollywood’s current race-swapping obsession feels more like a counterproductive virtue signal. There’s no shortage of incredible fairy and folk tales from Africa, South America, Asia, and the Middle East. There’s also no shortage of creative brain power to craft enchanting new plots with unique characters. I hope it's just they are to lazy or not smart enough to make up their own shit! But it's not hard to believe otherwise.
