These people and their silly oral traditions. The truth got lost over the years. In fact, performing oral sex on a live albino extends your life span. We should form a U.N. relief agency to teach Africans that simple fact.

If only the religious right in America had access to albinos.. There's no telling what they could accomplish with that kind of power.

Now all the albinos have to do is convince the people of their country that WITCH DOCTORS is good eatin'.

You gotta be pretty farking backwards to believe eating someone with a genetic disorder will make the bad spirits go away.

No kidding. Everyone knows you need to sacrifice the most pristine human in the village to appease the fire gods.

No it isn't. This is an article about 10,000 albinos being in hiding. The one you linked wasn't.

Fark should have a "WTF Africa?" tag. It's like Florida, only with more dismembering. And rape. And genocide. And infectious diseases. And machete massacres. And rape.

I got under some people's skin pretty hard last night by pointing out that I didn't really see that big a difference between the ritual cannibalism of some indigenous tribes and what Christians do on Sundays.

/it was fun

I don't know why your post made me think of this, but if Jesus was actually black do you think a "cracker" would be representative of a black Jesus body? Maybe they would hand out licorice instead.

Africa. Are the people killing the Albinos the same ones that believe if you have sex with a virgin, you'll be cured of AIDS? And since there are no virgins below the age of 14, men with AIDS are raping children and in many cases infants (you know, just to be sure she's a virgin.) Yeah, let's send them more money.

How many times is Fark gonna greenlight this story?

Fri April 04, 2008: Main - Witch doctors blamed for increasing number of murders of albinos in Tanzania. That's beyond the pale (link)

Sun October 19, 2008: Main - Tanzanian albinos stage protest to shed light on murders commited by witch doctors, ooo eee ooo ah ah ting tang, walla walla bing bang (link)

Sat March 14, 2009: Main - Albinos give the ol' pinkeye to gangs of thugs who like to kill them and turn their organs into lucky charms. "We are urging the international community to exert some pressure," says their leader, Keychain (link)
And another green referenced the story:
Thu June 12, 2008: Main - Times of India dispels Newman cancer rumors in between stories about vampire monkey gods and guide to harvesting organs of albinos to increase potency (link)

This gets published once a year in one outlet or another. I don't think there is anyone who doesn't know of this superstition by now.

Is it any sillier than the belief that if you wear a condom to prevent AIDS an omnipotent man in the sky, who really loves you, will damn your soul to a fiery hell for all eternity?

A) It's new to me.
B) This is something I'd like to know about.
C) I'm not about to complain about a repeat if it means the media sees a value in reporting lesser-known stories of actual value.

The media's actually doing its job for once. Let's not pressure them into going back to fawning over the Kardashians.

Yeah, but if you eat enough albino flesh, you'll be able to use their powerful albino weaponry.

I would appreciate it if you didn't take the time to debunk my ignorant and bigoted views against other cultures, thank you.

While I completely agree with the point you're trying to make to this individual, I have to say that as someone from a different culture that is also a part of American society or civilization, I don't think this is really the best way to try and communicate this. Faith healing happens in my country, it is not a part of my culture.
