African Albinos Hunted And Slaughtered For Good Luck Charms In Tanzania

I have been aware for some time of Albino’s in some African countries are being hunted down and killed whenever their existence is discovered. Their arms and legs are being brutally cut off, and …used in a grisly trade inspired by a renegade set of witch doctors; they claim potions made of the blood, skin or bones of an albino can make people wealthy and bring good luck…

….”In Tanzania, there has been a grotesque rash of albino killings: 54 people have been murdered since 2007, though observers say more incidences go unreported. Renegade witch doctors have convinced locals that there are magical properties in the blood, bones and skin of people with albinism, which has created a sickening black market where the limb of an albino can bring in anywhere from $500 to $2,000. In a country where the per capita income is roughly $450 a year, that’s a macabre fortune”…

A.B.C. newscaster JuJu Chang interviewed a survivor of a brutal amputee murder attempt by a group of witch doctors…”Mariamu Stanford, 28, a single mother with albinism from rural Tanzania, is just one of two Tanzanians with albinism known to have survived the gruesome attacks”…

This is very disturbing to me given that I have always interpreted the Christian bible’s description of Jesus Christ as him being an African-Albino. That is based on the following ”hair white like wool” etc. description quoted here from the bible:

1:14 His head and [his] hairs [were] white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes [were] as a flame of fire;
1:15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
1:16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and his countenance [was] as the sun shineth in his strength.(KJV translation)

The whole of the book of Revelation is generally taken as highly symbolic, and this passage is no exception, especially since the remainder of the description clearly cannot be interpreted as being a natural description. Nonetheless this passage has been used to argue that Jesus was black, based on the description of his hair as being “like wool”, which is interpreted to refer to hair that is tightly coiled, as many people of African descent have.[1] However, the full phrase is “white like wool”, and it is also compared to snow, contradicting this interpretation. In fact, the phrase “white like wool” is reproduced from the Book of Daniel.[2] It is also comparable to language used in the Apocalypse of Abraham, which describes the angel Yahoel as having a body “like sapphire” a face “like chrysolite” and “the hair of his head like snow”.[3]

The “feet of fine brass” line has also been used to argue for a dark-skinned race, but many often leave out burnished and glowing. Additionally, the references to having a white “head” and a countenance that is “as the sun shineth” has been used to argue for Jesus being racially white.[4]
