”I am not famaliar with CAGN. I do know that sometimes the color that an image is painted is symbolic rather than literal. Like in Kemet, I have read that people who were considered gods were painted gold. And people painted white symbolized someone who had died.“
Cagn was pre-Egyptian. Knowing that the colors of images are symbolic should encourage one, as symbols are iconic. A depiction of a God in white says something about that culture's mindset towards "white".
“I am pretty sure that albinos are discriminated against in other places. But as far as rounding them up and putting them in a 'concentration camp' type setting, that may be a bit of a stretch.”
Isn’t that what is implied by Dr Welsing? Was it not exclusion from normal society that preceded the migration forced or otherwise to friendlier climes? How is discrimination against albinos manifested in other places? Is there a rhyme for albinos that ends “if you’re albino stay back?” Is there a paper bag test for albinos? Is it the hair, the complexion or both that provokes this discrimination of albinos?
“I do not know how the white race was formed. I was not there. What has been presented here is a theory based off some facts but yet to be substanciated.”
Does this not give those who disagree every right to challenge this theory?
“I have never implied or stated that Afrikans sought to eliminate albinos. I do know that they are discriminated against.”
Your promotion of Dr.Welsing theory says otherwise. Or were you just posting for argument sake? Is it too much to ask for an example or proof of African discrimination against Albinos? Being prejudicial does not always mean being bigoted. I admit I’m prejudiced in varying degrees towards anyone who doesn’t share my heritage, Black/White, is that a form of discrimination?
“Why I ask? Is it the fear of the unknown, is it a superiority complex? What is it?“
I think it’s instinctive to fear/distrust the unknown/unrecognized, I do not believe a superiority complex is instinctive
