Is Chendall Weaver Albino?

To understand whether Chendall is albino or not, we first have to understand what albino is.

Albinos are people suffering from a rare genetic condition called albinism.

Albinism is a genetic condition inherited from parents, which reduces the production of melanin pigment in the skin, hair, and/or eyes.

It is observed in individuals of all racial and ethnic backgrounds globally.

In the United States, about one in every 18,000 to 20,000 individuals are affected by some form of albinism, while in other regions of the world, the prevalence can be as high as one in every 3,000 people.

Typically, most children born with albinism have parents with typical hair and eye colors corresponding to their ethnic backgrounds.

It affects skin pigmentation and can lead to eye and vision problems. Many individuals with albinism experience legal blindness. Typically, their eyes exhibit pale blue coloration, and their hair appears white or nearly white.

On the other hand, individuals classified as white typically exhibit a range of skin tones and hair colors, spanning from blond to black. Their eye colors can include brown, blue, green, or gray.

Unlike individuals with albinism, those considered “normal” white people possess melanin, and their skin often tans upon exposure to sunlight.

Looking at his childhood pictures, one may be confused since he resonates with the features mentioned above.
