It's not the coloration that kills them. When they die, no matter from what cause, shrimp lose their transparency. It's some weird thing they maintain using a chemical I think, and when they die, the production is stopped. It's the same for a lot of transparent fish (like glass catfish).
Unless you're talking about the shrimp turning white while they're still alive or something like that. More details would help if that's happening.
