Rare, fleeting fireworks like fall leaves, specimens collected like fireflies, awaiting a death jar. Ambers, coppers, blueys, strawberry blondes, cinnamon red hots, carrot tops, auburns, cherry pop rocks, I've heard them all but I was told my people are going extinct, this mutation in the mc1r gene. We'll have to band together, procreate. Why isn't anyone doing anything? Hitler banned redhead marriage for fear of a defiantly tough race.

They say, we are fading away, like the panda, chimp, dolphin, dodo bird, wiped out as early as 2060. And it's a
