For me, there is no doubt about my favorite color. It depends. Depends on where the color is displayed. If you ask me to compare the colors on a paint palette, I will probably go for the calm and cool look of navy blue.
If you ask me about the color of the car, I tend to lean towards white. Of course, the problem with white is technically speaking, it’s not a color.
Of course, after some research, you find that defining white and black for that matter as colors or not depends on the definition of color. Here is an important excerpt from Britanica.com:
If color is only how physics describes it, the visible spectrum of light waves, then black and white are excluded and do not count as real physical colors … If you include in the definition of color, However, all the ways that human eyes deal with light and its absence, and then black and white, as well as pink, earn their place in the pencil box. – Jonathan Hogeback via www.britannica.com
Classic “Big Colors” propaganda trying to take something that is obviously a color by any practical definition and create doubt in the minds of the public. I firmly believe that black and white are colors and should be treated fairly and equitably with the rest of the color spectrum.
It is unfair to separate and isolate a choice of “color” simply because some definitions emphasize that in the world of physics they do not match the definition of “color”.
The reality is that in America all colors should matter and as long as we are free to choose which color will be the dominant visual on our cars, homes and appliances, black and white should be included.
