Albinos, as in people. they get rudely stared at, jokes made about them in movies, in real life. bigoted racists single them out for the color of their skin. why aren't there laws specifically protecting them as a group, and forcing employers to meet a hiring quota for them, and preferential acceptance into colleges, etc?

Albino is a Congenital disorder, not a race. Calling people who discriminate against albinos racist is simply inaccurate. Also albanism also impairs vision, it's not just a skin disorder.
Discrimination against people with albanism is not a real concern in the US. The albino population is less then 200,000 in the US, less than 0.006% of Americans. Also hiring protections exist for people with albanism as per the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Court cases have found albanism meets the ADAs definition of disability.
Scholarships also exist for people with Albanism.

Discrimination against albinos is not something which is very common, and they are already afforded most of the protections you asked about as per the ADA.
Hiring quotas are not really applicable given the fact that albanism is so rare and can impact job performance (vision issues).

that's true but hiring quotas aren't performance based, how could they be? Though not all people with albinism have a disability, other than sun sensitivity, so they may not all be covered by the a.d.a.
Imagine a black, female albino, so many things they could qualify for where would they begin lol

You seem to assume that that woman would otherwise have equal opportunities as a able bodied white man.

I had no idea, so with no other disabilities except the color of their skin (lack of) that makes them disabled, yep sounds about right.

Albinism is more than just a skin disorder. It also affects eyesight. There are two of albinism, one affects the eyes, skin, and hair, the other affects the eyes only. In both cases, people with albinism have at least some sort of visual impairment, as well as being very sensitive to sunlight which can make it dangerous for them to go outside.

that is a common affliction however what if they just need to wear glasses, lots of people do is that a disability? no sunlight issue with inside jobs, so albinism in itself isn't a disability but those with albinism can have some disabilities as anyone can, so why would lack of pigment be a disability absent of anything else considered a disability? So courts have ruled that lack of pigment is a disability? could people who aren't albino and those who are albino have common disabilities? why does color matter?

Get a grip. You think albinos have it bad? Try being a 50 year old bald, white man. OMG, they are ripped in the media. They are worse off than waiting for the fat lady to sing. You know what? Us bald men don't care. We get it. It's part of life. Beauty is celebrated and always has been. We had our affair with beauty when we were young and athletic.
Albinos look weird. Me, as a caring, deep individual, looks past baldness, albinoism, or faces blown off by bombs in Vietnam. However, the culture at large does not overlook. They are disgusted with baldness, fatness, albinos, one eyed jacks, limpers, missing fingers or legs, stutterers, or bearded ladies. It's a fact and cannot be changed. If you try to change this through media or government intrusion, people will be repelled and despise ugly people even more. Just leave it alone. The ugly you will always have with you.
