    I've never heard of Albino until now so I'm just learning, but what's the difference between black albino people and white albino people, like how do you know if they're black or white?

    In the movie industry they often exaggerate and stretch these characters albinism, Mexican, blacks whites. Its all of us. Its tv its a movie its a show its not real not everything should be taken to heart. Im so sick of hearing...”ive never seen( for instance) a puerto rican woman portrayed exactly like me and how I want them to be portrayed in movies before.” Very annoying to hear, you wanna see some history on my background pick up a book at your local library

    Not gonna lie, I felt like there are a lot of points about appearance in the video. Now, what do we say about appearances? About making opinions just based on appearance?
    Other points were certainly valid I guess

    2:57 Because they hire people for their talent skills, if no one with albinism can play that character that is it. They don't do it for the sake of being politically correct. Geez that's just a movie

    "They're not albinos, they're ghosts"....ehhhhhh but if they thought they might look slightly like albinos....I mean, yeah they are ghosts, rebel programs, but you make a film for the public, not just yourself. You can't make a cupboard for someone and when they're unhappy with the quality call it a table lol

    Well... I hate to be that person, but actually the twins from The Matrix: Reloaded are really ghosts, non albinos. The Merovingian is famous to have gathered old software who was created in the previous iteration of The Matrix, and all his servants are what people knew as monsters. Werewolves, vampires and, of course, ghosts. As an example of that, Persephone (Merovingian's wife) killed one of her husband's servant with a silver bullet just few scenes prior to the fight between the twins and Morpheus, specifying it was an effective method to kill that kind of creatures.

    Real question: Are any of the people in this video blind? I only asked because I noticed their eye movements were very similar to those who are blind, but then when they mentioned that they've seen the movies and the characters I was surprised to know that they aren't or is that a affect from them being albino?
    Thank you.

      as far as i figured out, it differs. Some have really bad eye sight and some are crossed-eyed (some more some less). And some have neither of that. Apparently that condition can affect their eyes aswell, but like i said it is different from person to person.
      The main point is that the eyes aswell are missing melanin. Basically like other light eye coloured people, just far worse. I have really light eyes and tend to have trouble when the sun is out. My eyes wiggle around some times when there is to much bright light around. So i could imagine that happens to them too but like faaaaaar worse. Not sure tho, just a suggetion

    My mom has a similar skin condition called Vitiligo the condition Micheal Jackson and Winnie Harlow has so I relate very well with people with Albinism and defend them as well. They need better representation and these horrible stereotypes need to cease at once they are no different than any of us they just lack pigment in their skin and hair. I hate how people like my mom has been treated unfairly all their life just because of the way they look which btw they look extremely beautiful in an ethereal way to me always have always will. It's probably because the one who gave birth to me has different skin then 90% of the planet and she is my mom and "mother is god in the eyes of a child". So to anyone with vitiligo or albinism you are beautiful beings just so you know

    The guy from Benchwarmers wasn't albino, he had a phobia of the sun and other weird traits for comedy. He is jokingly referred to as one but it isn't actually true in the movie.

    I understand that it would be cool for an albino person to be played by someone who is actually albino, but considering the small amount of albino people in the world and the large amount of people trying to be actors and actresses... it's just not always feasible. That's why in movies with people with chronic illnesses, thry are typically played by people who do not have that illness. Also if someone was playing a drag queen character, or even playing somebody who is gay, the actors themselves may not actually be this way. It is acting, not real life.

    to be honest the dude from powder is what I thought albinos looked like because I'd never seen an albino before but then I actually met an albino person and realized they're nothing like what the movies show them as again I had never seen nor met an albino person before then so I was ignorant

      yes, they do. they tend to have eye-related problems as well. every albino either has weak vision,has a lazy eye,has crossed eyes, or eyes that move uncontrollably and so on. due to the lack of pigmentation they have a loooot of eye problems

    I do find it a bit annoying when people of minority communities (trans, non-white, albino, etc.) complain about not having as many characters. They're minorities. Being that there's not that many people with those traits, you cannot expect to just see those types of people represented like a white, or normal person.

    • barbz chunli
      barbz chunli 22 days ago

      i kinda agree, but non-white and trans representation is good for society. WAKANDA wasnt THAT good but the reason people hyped it up is because black boys and girls will be able to see people who look like them in movies. gay representation is also very much needed....idk thats my input on that.

    We had a couple Albino's in my school when I was a teenager. First time I had seen anyone like that. I was a little confused by the white hair but I just shrugged to myself since it's not that strange. What really grabbed my attention however was the red eyes. They popped vividly even in dim lighting to the point where it was almost a little unnerving. I remember googling what causes that when I got home and learned about Albino's. Had no idea they existed before that. Honestly thought it was a bit neat that a red eye color was possible. I think the people here may be over stating the affects of these movies just a bit.

    People in these comments are so rude tbh. None of y’all know what having albinism feels like so you can’t expect to know how they feel (everyone’s sensitive when it doesn’t directly affect you apparently) and having that one albino friend is not a representative of how all of them feel. There are approximately 402,500 albino people in the world so I can agree w them that it’s not hard to find an albino who wants to act and cast them.

  • RealShit HipHop
    RealShit HipHop Month ago

    That African American dude in the black jumper is a real cool guy. He's appreciating the character for what they are and taking into account things like historical and narrative context. The chick who keeps going on about how Albino characters should be played by Albino actors is a bit near-sighted. There are many other factors that could play into why a character isn't played by an actual Albino person, whether it's acting ability or availability. She has no idea how hard it might have been to find a pair of Albino twins to perform in the Matrix.
    That said, it would be very nice to see more positive Albino characters in general on TV and film as they legitimately are a very misrepresented and misjudged community.
