Hot Albinos!

Updated on December 21, 2010

Albinism is a condition in which a person has an often complete lack of pigment in their skin, hair, and eyes. In not only occurs in humans but in all other vertebrates. Unfortunately, people with albinism face discrimination as many are ignorant towards their appearance.

All too often Hollywood casts an albino character as a villain...

In reality the discrimination that people with these characteristics face is all to real. There are parts of Africa where Albinism is  common but, while most people have dark complexions, those with white hair and skin stand out. Recently there has been a rise in the killings of albino people as some Africans equate them with the supernatural and the occult.

Its time for people to learn that Albinism is beautiful!

      This is a very true atricle,

      However, i am sure that the people of The Da Vinci Code did not mean any harm towards albinos (I am albino myself and i dont find it offensive)

      That is a really horrible thing that's happening to albinos in Tanzania! It's just so unbelievably crazy and heartless that those kids are killed to sell some of their body parts.
