David Jones and the Red Headed League

I am a redhead. Although that red has rusted into white. I read that about  2% of the world’s population are redheads. Red heads have always seemed to me to be a group of homo-sapiens distinct from the rest of humanity. (I love the Sherlock Holmes story about the Red Head League and thus the title.) Russia was named after the red headed tribe that invaded and conquered her lands. Red heads are mostly associated with Celtic peoples. But there are red headed Italians. And Jews. And Greeks. I’m told that if Africans bleach their hair, it becomes red. None of my children has red hair. Perhaps in the next generation.
