Etymology: From Orangutan.
A derogatory term used to describe people with a hair color containing the primary color red, including all its gradients from auburn to strawberry blond. It's usage was popularized by Chris Lilly's t.v show Summer Height's High. The usage of this term reflects blatant ignorance on the user, as they do not consider this form of discrimination significant. This term is on par with "chink" for people with an Asian appearance, "nigga" for people of darker skin, "lebo" for people with an assumed Lebanese background and so on. The discriminatory feelings associated with the usage of the word stem from English racism towards the Celts. However in a modern sense it is more commonly used due to people's inherent weakness to alleviate personal issue's at the expense of others.
