Facts about Albinos.....

About 1 in 17,000 people have some type of albinism, although up to 1 in 75 are carriers.

An evil albino is a villain in fiction who is depicted as displaying several physical traits usually associated with albinism (eg. pale skin, platinum blonde hair, blue or red eyes) despite not necessarily being supposed to suffer from that particular condition (which generally affects vision - few of these characters have impaired vision) with the specific and obvious purpose of distinguishing the villain in question from the heroes by means of appearance.
