    I just don't get some African superstition.  So, the latest craze is cures which use body parts from albinos as recipe ingredients.  In other parts they sacrifice children in bizarre rituals (it's even been evident amongst migrants in the UK, as the dismembered body of a child retrieved from the Thames showed) and still others think that having sex with a baby cures aids.

    How do you go about tackling this kind of perverse belief and practice (which albeit marginal must still have many millions party to it)?

    You know what they say; don't dismiss it until you've tried it.
    Sing, goddess, of Achilles' ruinous anger
    Which brought ten thousand pains to the Achaeans,
    And cast the souls of many stalwart heroes
    To Hades, and their bodies to the dogs
    And birds of prey

    I'm just waiting for some of our more enlightened members to point out that even discussing this is an example of white supremacism and neocolonial barbarity.

    That's simply ignorance.

    I would like to hear those that prettend primitive peoples to stay in theirs current condition.
    In Latin America, long time ago, practises like human sacrifices, head hunting and reduction, canibbalism, infanticide, and many others, where commonplace in several groups. The Spaniards and modern governments persecuted those practices and forbade them. And now some are accusing the Spaniards and the local governments for destroying native cultural traditions...
     
    Just imagine New Guinea if Australians had allowed cannibalism to continue. Or if in Congo, the tradition of eating Pigmies is preserved... Gosh!
     
    Respecting the good traditions of tribal peoples is fine, and desirable. But preventing the crimes among tribal people is also a matter of decency. I believe, at least.

    In Latin America of today policemen and military run amok in some cities and killing children just because they are thought to disturbe the business for chop keepers. Is that not primitive? Is that not infanticide?
    The trigger happy Wild West mentality that exists among some Latin Americans are as bizarre as anything one can see among so called primitive peoples.
     
    And the violense, genocide, war, opression and religious persecution the Spanish and Portuguese introduced dwarfs most things that the Amerind ever committed.
     
    And when you are speaking about Congo, do not forget how the Belgians managed to reduce half of its population through exterm violence and forced labour because Leopold II wanted to extract the countries natural resources.

    Why do you change the topic?
    Instead of discussing the issue you start to blame Latin America. A region that you don't know.

    It was you who started to talk about Latin America and about Spaniards and about Congo and about aboriginal peoples and similar.
    And it seems that I know more about Latin America than you know about Africa.

    Focus in the problem of the Albins, please. The examples of raping baby to cure AIDS and sacrifices of children weren't put by me. I put the examples from New Guinea and also from pre-Columbian South America to not be called racist, that's all.

    We did allow cannibalism to continue. It was common for Papuans to consume body parts of their dead relatives after they became deceased. The Australian government's approach to Papua New Guinea was to allow the locals to continue with their traditional way of life without Australia disturbing that. Some Papuans still continue this practice to this day, with the result that some of them develop ilnesses similar to Mad Cow Disease.

    Well, it seems that you accuse a lot of aboriginal peoples to do a lot of things, better you take your beloved Spaniards, Portuguese and  Latinos as an example since they committed far worse atrocities than most aboriginal peoples ever did.
     
    This do not mean that I dont think the slaughteing of Albinos in Africa is horrible.

    Indeed, I agree that they commited many crimes. But they also prevented others. Human sacrifices, for instance.

    Instead they practised another form of human sacrifice, to kill the so called heathens in the name of God, that is also a kind of human sacrifice.

    That's new to me. Explain me where it happens.
    As far as I know, these conquerors wanted to increase the number of Catholics, rather than diminish it.
     
    And please. Focus in the topic of Africans killing Albins to make Black Magic (Black magic is not a racist term; just in case you don't know)

    Not really. This practice is not widespread in the slightest and the vast majority of Africans would find it as disgusting and reprehensible as us.

    That's very theoretical. If you see the values of some people authorize them to kill albins because the magical properties of theirs skins.... well, I am sure then that my humanitary values, that forbide supersticious murder, are a lot better. No relativity on that.

    Come now Pinguino, you know that Albinos may possibly be stoning women hence Carch only views them as the advanced element of what he considers barbarisms. Recall that Amerind shaman are good, Western doctors are bad specially if they are "missionaries"!Confused

    Those who refused to be Christians was sometimes killed or forced to suffer in many ways. That is common knowledge that you who claim to be so knowledgeable about Latin America ought to know. Even recently Amerindians have been subject to violence when they refused to accept the presence of missionaries on their land.
     
    And since it was you who started to generalize about different aboriginal peoples and how they got civilized by the Spaniards (as if the old Spaniards could civilize anybody!!). And you even brought up old exaggerated rumours about people in New Guinea, of course without mentioning the Indonesian opression of the Western part of the island.

    While he's certainly right that it can be extremely dangerous, since value judgements on cultures we know little about can have profound consequences, I'd say he's wrong in that I like to draw my Rubicon on human rights when it comes to people getting killed...

    I see. I only said certain brutal customs on tribal people were and should be banned.
    I know that you preffer brutal traditions stay... But I don't agree. Look at these problems in Africa. Focus in them.

    Just eye through some of the other threads where we have discussed mission, aboriginal peoples and similar. Also look at the thread about California missions.

    Protestants is also participating in the opression of Amerindians, just look  at the SIL (who claim to be researchers of language but is a rather aggressive protestant missionary organisation).

    I do not prefer any brutal traditions. I just put them in context and compare with the brutal practises of the societies surrounding them.

    Well, protestants are Christians too and they have also committed a lot of atrocities.

    And how do you put in context the tradition of eating pigmies? the traffic of magical boddyparts in South Africa? the female circumsition? abortion? raping babies to cure AIDS? stoning women? magical skins of Albinos?

    And how do you put in context the tradition of eating pigmies? the traffic of magical boddyparts in South Africa? the female circumsition? abortion? raping babies to cure AIDS? stoning women? magical skins of Albinos?
     
    I think most of those practices are quite revolting. And as you maybe noticed I have among other things started a thread about the practice of stoning and flogging women.
     
    Just remember that some of these practises are quite small in numbers compared with all the victims in more ordinary warfare and opression.
    Especially the Albino question. If you compare with the numbers of children killed in war the amount of killed albinos is not very big. But it is still revolting.
     
     
    Abortion is quite another matter when it is conducted on undeveloped embryos. In that stage the embryo is still a part of the womans body, so it is upon her to descide over her own body.

    Small number of Albines you said? Calculate the proportion to the population of Albines in Africa, not to Africans!

    Well, how many albinos are there in Africa?
