Is race really "skin deep"?

Well, now, apparently not, because these people are obviously Africans --
full-blooded Africans, too.
They are African albinos -- a not-so-rare genetic defect.
Most of them die of cancer.
There are millions of these people.
Yet their "skin color" is as white as yours (I hope) and mine.
Anybody who claims to perceive "no difference" between the races needs glasses --
dark glasses, and a white cane.
Is it "hate" to see a speeding truck before it crushes you to death?
