I am implying nothing more than I actually stated. I started off showing that in the context of Dr. Welsing's theory there is an alternative explanation to abuse, to which YOU agreed and stated, "africans may not have been ABUSIVE in the resettlement or migrations of people into the cooler climates....”
If someone is saying he knows about abuses to albinos in his culture, that person would be the one to debate. Some Africans do many things today that were unheard of in the past.
All phobias are the product of historical negative experiences that people tried to deal with the best way they knew how. If, in light of better information today, people are reacting badly to a phobia, then that IS abusive. That does not necessarily mean people in the past knew better and were simply abusive. This is in line with what I first explained and reached consensus about.
Also, in the context of the psychology of white people (who do not all think alike) that theory does not explain white people’s collective mindset either. What is that white historical mindset the theory is explaining? In my view, Dr. Welsing's theory is flawed, and how you are using it is flawed also.
No one has presented evidence to show albinos were abused by their Black parents 20,000 to 40,000 years ago before the evolution of white people, which is on topic.
It is also reported that there were many African and Indian cultures that considered albinos to be sacred. They were the revered elite. This too is not proof that Africans historically dealt with albinos the best way.
Anyhow, you have nowhere to go with that line as far as I see, but feel free to debate your premise with others.
