I'm writing an article about albinism from a personal perspective.

Ask my anything about albinism, it will give me some ideas as to what I should include in the article. (I will still answer your question here)

You can note me your question if you're embarrassed for any reason.

Alright, here are some questions:

1: Why is your hood white? Most ninja wear black to blend into the night. Do you live in a snowy area?
2: If I were to eat your heart would I gain your powers?
3: You don't look like any of the albinos I've ever seen.

Here are some answers:

1. My hood is white because I'm albino.
2. No one's ever eaten my heart before, so I can neither say "yes" or "no" to your question.
3. You're going to have to elaborate. If you are referring to the red-eye thing, I am going to copypasta from a previous answer:

"No albino truly has red eyes.

Most albinos will have a very pale blue or gray eyes if they have OCA1 or OCA2 albinism. Albinos with OCA3 and OCA4 may have blue, green, or hazel eyes.

The idea of red-eyed albinos came from where people have most seen albinos, in photographs. In photographs, albinos will almost always have red-eyes from the camera.

There are times when albinos may have a red-tint to their eyes from the lack of pigmentation, but it is never a straight-up red color."

I still don't know why your hood is white. Is it related to your albinism or is it just how people dress where you live?

Also, I have definitely met albinos with visibly red eyes. That's normal, it's explained easily. I've definitely seen that in real life.

As I said, it must be a red tint, and that tint is only possible with those who have OCA1 albinism. I myself have OCA2 albinism.

As for the hood, it's for religious reasons. We're supposed to cover up everything that's why I wear it. I just chose to wear white that day because it would go with the white undershirt I was wearing, but I have hoods in ever color of the rainbow.

Where can I get my own Albino?

Preferably smaller than 5,7" and red eyes are a must. Other than that they need to be bi-polar, or able to become.
