"are black and white colors?"

 "Are black and white colors?" - is one of the most debated issues about color.  Ask a scientist and you'll get a response based on physics: 'Black is not a color, white is a color.' Ask an artist 
and you will get quite a different answer!" Ask me, 
and I will say . . . BOTH are colors!

White is a color.  White reflects all the colors of the visible light spectrum to the eyes; thus it is the blending of all colors to become it's own unique color.  Want proof?  Look at a rainbow, which is sunlight refracted to expose all the colors that make a single beam of "white" sunlight.
Alternately, black is a color as well.  When all three primary colors are combined, you get a "black" color so to speak.  For more on black & white theories, check out this link devoted to exposing the "black & white truth".
