I am currently interested in documenting the incidence of the MC1R gene mutation responsible for red hair and freckles, particularly amongst black/mixed raced individuals of all ages.
i want to stir the perception that most of us have of a freckled ‘ginger’ person as a white caucasian individual potentially of Celtic descent. whilst there seems to be an underlying Irish/Scottish connection to the MCR1 gene in the occurrence of red hair, does being ginger still only means being Scottish, Irish, Welsh or even a white caucasian individual?
as we struggle with issues of immigration, discrimination and racial prejudice, Mother Nature, meanwhile, follows its own course, embracing society’s plurality and, in the process, shaking up our perceptions about origins, ethnicity and identity. Scotland may have the highest percentage of people with red hair in the world, yet statistics haven’t really caught up and do not seem to represent everyone.
