In southeast Africa, albinos are at risk of being murdered because their body parts are used for witchcraft

Apparently black Africans never tire of being savages, even in the 21st century. In Tanzania, even babies and infants have had their arms and legs hacked off with machetes. African witch doctors will pay as much as $75,000 for a complete set of albino body parts, according to a recent report from the Red Cross. Albinism is a hereditary genetic condition that causes an absence of pigmentation in the skin, hair and eyes and is often linked by researchers to inbreeding. It is particularly prevalent in Tanzania, affecting one person in 1,400, compared with one in 20,000 in the West.

We have a diversity-gap. I have yet to encounter vibrant African witch doctors in my town. I assume that ICE is working on a remedy for that unfortunate shortcoming.
