Rejected petition Make picking on people with red/ginger hair a hate crime

I have read articles in the times of young girls that have committed suicide as a result. It is totally unacceptable to treat people this way because of the colour of their hair. I have been embarrassed by groups of lads on numerous occasions it had to stop
