There isn't actually a correct answer to this - I just wanted to know what the majority think because it is a matter of opinion.

Genuine story from my teaching days. We got a mixed heritage Aboriginal guy from Aus to take an assembly and talk about his life/experiences.

First question: Right kids, what's better, to be white or black?
Points to a kid with hand up desperate to answer:
Kid shouts triumphantly: White!

6 teachers put their head in their hands...

He was actually quite good, explaining later to some teachers that they are slaves to the system, spending 25 years in debt to a bank, where as he was quite happy to go "walkabout" for a couple of years without a care in the world.

Not saying he had everything perfect but neither do we.

Of course it is. Are you talking about standard K100 black or rich black?

Or even Pantone Black. If so, which one?

It isn't. It is the absence of light. It is not on the visible spectrum of colours, as shown by rainbows. True black is very rare. What people often perceive as black is in fact a very dark version of another colour.

Or black is the surface that absorbs all light and reflects none - such a surface contains all colours surely?

Yep, if you look very closely, Guinness is not black, it is very deep red.

Which reminds me, I had briefly forgotten Guinness is now vegan, so that’s me done for the weekend now.

Of course. It’s a word for a colour.

Is the absence of light a colour? Nah.

The real question is whether white is more of a colour than black.
