Black albino model accused of white privilege

Albino model Joanné Dion has struggled to fit into society as she isn’t always accepted by both black and white communities.

She was born with albinism - a genetic disorder which causes less pigment in the skin and eyes.

Growing up she was bullied and called “Casper” and “talcum powder”.

She’s fought hard to become a model and told BBC Minute: “I’m not normal, and I’m OK with that."

Video produced by Patrick Clahane and Olivia Le Poidevin.
