Right now there's a cry to #SaveAlbinos in East Africa because they're being killed, for whatever reason (and also for rituals, supposedly, like the baby in the picture above).
I know that albinos suffer stigmatization on some level but I never imagined that they're killed, because they are albinos. These comments I just saw on Instagram made me wonder.
If this is true then it is simply wrong on all levels! I remember some years ago, Linda Ikeji posted on her blog that a Nigerian was seeking asylum in the USA because he was an albino and according to him, they kill albinos in Nigeria, and some times use them for rituals.
Most of us thought the person was simply delusional or just lying to get into the US by all means. Does this really happen in Nigeria? I'm appalled.
