scientifically speaking, black is not consider as a color because black only appears when theres no color, and black disappear when color appears.

I love to wear black my closet is mostly black clothes and black shoes. I do consider black a color I think black is all colors mixed together. I don't consider white a color because no 2 colors can make white. Many colors are need to make black.

Actually we are both wrong see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black. Black and white are colors.

Yes I got your point and I think you asked a very logical question. Although black is a color but scientifically black is when you cannot see a color it is that wavelength which gives you complete darkness. But one thing is if you spin a color wheel then you get black which means black is the mixture of all colors. So in that sense it is a color http://www.masalaofbollywood.blogspot.com/

it depends on how fast the wheel is being forced to turn around.. because if it slow, im not sure if all the colors are mixing.. but then if you spin it very fast.. ul see the light in it.. just remember, dont put a dark thing on it.. good example for that is a diamond.. if u look at the diamond closely, ull see defferent colors.. but if u see it far, the color will mix and the color becomes totally white.. hope you understand..

Hello rowell_marapao, Yes I consider black as a color. I think it all depends how you use it. Scientifically, black is not a hue (color); a black object absorbs all the colors of the visible spectrum and reflects none of them. This is sometimes confused with black being called 'a mixture of all colors', but that is not the case. In fact, an object emitting or reflecting all colors is perceived as white. Source: Wikipedia But I like to keep thing simple so I consider black a colors and use them just as we would use any other color. Which means, how they behave will depend on what other colors you use them with, how much of them you use, and for what psychological purposes. Example: I am wearing a black shoes. Look for a black colored car. So I think it all depends how we used it. :-)

Wow... I never thought of that before,but i like black a lot. That's true too,that black isn't a colour. White colour is the combination of seven colour in the rainbow.

Yes, it is defined as a dark color. And I think that is only based on scientifically theory but a lot of people describe it as a dark color like me. And it will usually use it when we need to blend a certain color.
