'Kick a Ginger' Christmas Card?

A controversial Christmas card has some seeing red.


Gingers around the world have taken a beating ever since November 2009, when three boys were arrested in California for participating in "Kick a Ginger Day." Not long after, a British supermarket pulled a Christmas card thought to be insensitive to red-headed kids.

The card shows a child with bright red hair sitting on Santa's lap, with the caption: "Santa loves all kids. Even ginger ones."

One mother was shocked when she saw it on the shelf at British supermarket Tesco. "I just thought, 'What is so funny about that?'" she told the BBC. "I didn't really get the joke."

Tesco has apologized for selling the Christmas card.

Moms, do you think the card is offensive?

What if the card said “Santa loves all kids. Even black ones”?

Yes, it’s offensive.
