Mom Is Inspired To Raise Awareness After Picture Of Her Albino Son Was Being Shared Online As A Cruel Meme

Certain conditions, like albinism, make a person more susceptible to being ridiculed. In many cases, this unfair treatment can even be targetted at babies and it may just be because people are simply not educated about the issue.
What is albinism? According to KidsHealth, this refers to a genetic condition whereby a person is born without (or with very little) pigmentation in the eyes. It can sometimes affect the hair and skin too. In addition, albinism can be passed from a parent to a child as a result of genetic mutation.
It's distasteful for an albino child to be used as the punchline for a joke but that was something one mother found herself dealing with.
