"GINGERS DO HAVE SOULS!!" is a rant video made by Michael Copper, and it currently has over 29 million views, as well as parodies and remixes made by other people. In the video, Michael's angry at South Park (which started the ginger craze) and all the people who make fun of redheads, calling them gingers, and making insults regarding thier lack of a soul. He makes a lot of good points, but while defending himself, he screams and makes faces. This is the first video on YouTube that successfully uses the sentences "I go to church, im a Christian," and "F**K YOU, BIT*H" in the same video.
MICHAEL COPPER: Uh, yeah. I just wanted to say that... (Exhales) ...It really irritates me... how South Park would say that... redhead people don't have... souls, okay? Because... we do. We do have souls, all right? And lately, I've been being called a ginger. A fat ginger... by everybody at school. (Wipes nose; sighs) And it really hurts my feelings. I act like it doesn't, but it does really bad. GINGERS HAVE SOULS! I go to church! I'm a Christian! You don't know me! You're not God! Whoo! (Gobbling noise) Blblblblb! You're not God! You don't know who has a soul and who dudn't! All right? I'm a Christian. (Stares angrily) So if you think... I don't have a soul, you tell me! Otherwise, fuck you! Bitches! You ain't... tsk... for real?! I'm-- I'm gettin' sick and tired of everyone makin' fun of redhead people! Like (High-pitched voice) "Ha-ha-ha-ha! He's a ginger! Ha-ha-ha! He's a ginger!" (Pointing) "Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!" (Normal voice) Really? That's funny? Yeah. "Ha ha!" Okay, "ha!" "Ha ha!" I'm being called a ginger every single day at school! (Licks lips) Every day of my life! You know I've contemplated suicide, all sorts of things. (Points) It PISSES ME OFF! Ginger people DO have souls! All right?! (Shows his hair) I'm red hair! I have red hair! I got red hair! And I'm proud of it! All right?! I consider "ginger..." a very slanderous word. Demeaning word. And I'm tired of it! .......Tired of it. You know? Everyone else gets respect! I mean, black people, white people, Mexicans, everyone! Gingers, why-- why do gingers have to be... put down so much? Like, really, what's so different about it besides their hair color? Huh? Really! What is so freakin' different?! TELL ME! God! 'Cause I don't really see much of a difference! Okay?! I'm redhead, I'm redheaded, and I'm proud of it. All right? Everyone else, I'm sorry. I don't mean to insult you... but, you know..... I mean.... I'm proud of me. I'm proud of myself, you know? I'm proud I got freckles. You know? It's who I am. God made me that way. (Staring) And I have a soul! So... yeah. Don't freakin' be like that, okay? (Pointing at himself) I have a soul! Ginger and proud of it!
