I know of a brother and sister that are albinos. There may be something in the genes that causes it.
After the birth of her first albino child she was told by doctors that the chances of having another albino were approximately one in four. The risk is higher if the child is a boy.

As someone said, extremely high if the parents both carry the gene for albinism. It occurs in all races, though in some rural areas, the child may be seen as either "magical" or "cursed." If the child is seen as cursed, they may be killed.
