I don't really believe in the albino theory either, especially since Nigeria has the highest percentage of them still walking around freely in that country. 

One journal that I read talked about pale skin/hair/eyes as a sort of genetic mutational quirk that was completely random, but wasn't really unfavorable, and in some instances was utilized to their favor, so it kept propagating. 

I wish I could find that article again.  The researchers called it "functional albinism".  Like for the first person who had blue eyes, both of their parents had a misplaced base-pair on their DNA strand (I bet this can be blamed on inbreeding).  It's sort of like a scratch in a CD, the reader just kinda skips over it and you miss a bit of music.  So basically, you have a miswritten code for iris pigment, but the rest of the blueprint is fine and functional.

That's not the same for albinos.  They have actually structural differences in their eyes because they didn't develop properly, due to lack of pigment in the retina.  White folks have pigment in their retina.

i belive the vitamin d theory when you really study it it makes sense back then they were not getting vitamin d for food as much as today the were hunting and eating mostly meat along with whatever they could find. the guy who did the other experimnet does not seem to be taking  that into account. when human began to migrate to other parts of the world the adapted to the changes.
