19 Life of a Snow White Man

Life of a Snow White Man

Posted on October 8, 2011 by

Albinism is a congenital disease characterized by absence of pigment in the skin. According to scientists, one in 20 thousand people is a white-skinned white-haired albino. A 27-year-old resident of Astana, Ruslan Nabiev, is one of them. He does not think himself to be special in any way that is why he is always surprized when he is given much attention to. He says that he is used to people staring at him so he does not notice it.  As for his friends, non of them sets a stress on his appearance.

The Nabievs begin their day at 7 a. m. Since Ruslan is a visually handicapped person, he was granted a two-room apartment six months ago. Now they can enjoy a new view.

Olya is the oldest child in the family, she is 4. It is time for her to go to the kindergarten.

    Nothing special. I know a few albinos and they are perfectly normal people, so what..?

      The point of the article was that Ruslan Nabiev does not feel that he is any different than anyone else did you read the first paragraph? I think not.You clearly did not read any of this article.

      Of course seeing as you call yourself BlowME that indicates that you most likely only care about yourself and not for others at all.I bet you do not really have any albino friends your claim sounds like the standard “Internet I know something” bogus statement.

      I think is doing ok he has a larger than average apparent(says so in the article)and he is driving a lates 90’s early 00 Lexus which in Kazakhstan is an above average ride.

    “Although just 10% of Ruslan’s eyesight is functioning, he is not afraid of driving because he ‘has good breaks’”

    Russian Johnny Winter, right down to the guitar and the cowboy hat. –Hope he does well.

    He kinda looks like someone you’d see in Finland. Little bit different bone structure, though.

    Wait a minute… dude can put up a fancy shelf setup and mount the tv on the wall, but they don’t have a chair at the table? Yeah, I know that’s his job, but how hard is buying a chair? Just sayin’…

    Shouldn’t he be living in Belarus?

  7. Ham are sick, Al says:

    i don’t think he is handicapped. Collecting from the government and claiming you are handicapped and are not is fraud. There is nothing about his condition that would prevent him from getting employment. if he is sensitive to bright light, sunglasses are the remedy. He should be cut-off from the dole.

  8. Ham are sick, Al says:

    He is driving a Lexus. And he is supported by the government? Something isn’t right here…

    A tire for a chair? Why not an amp??

    Thank you Ruslan (‘Beliy’) for letting us look at your family and a bit of your life. Very Innovative furniture. Good luck to you from Australia.

  12. Verto says:
