    Apparently the government is revoking the license of all witch doctors. They think that this will stop the random killings of albinos. I have no idea how they think that will work.

    *facepalm* That reminds me of Prohibition (American illegalization of liquor). Do they really thing witch doctors will stop practicing their magic because they don't have a license?

    Don't know. Governments do really stupid things sometimes. Mostly they react to gut feelings and fight symptoms.

    I wonder how any albino children are born in those parts of the world to warrant such a reaction. Sounds more like a bad gene problem than a cultural conflict.

    Their albino percentage is probably similar to ours. Just because there suddenly is a focus on them makes it appear as if they are much more common. And albinos stand out more between black people than between white people.

    True, but the reaction is still unwarranted IMO.

    The reaction is indeed unwarranted. More often than not governments like to pass laws that target symptoms. These allow them to LOOK effective and on the case, when in reality the problem is still there. These laws are then never revoked and so you get some very amusing legacy laws and a maze of government regulations.

    Indeed. Sounds like there are some "witch doctors" in government right now. The "Eat the raw heart of a chicken and call me in the morning" approach that government usually takes doesn't accomplish anything, as you said so yourself (redundancy fail?).

    *goes to call Haitian connections*

    It seems I've created a two-faced monster (Mad Mantis and a crazy-looking lizard monster) so I am going to try to this topic once again.

    Witch Doctor! or That Weird Uncle You Always Try to Avoid?

    Generally I avoid all family as I find their presence a bit annoying.
