Depends on whether you are talking about pigments or light. Black is the
absence of all colors of light while white is the presence of all colors of
light. Pigments are just the opposite because the color is defined by the
light reflected. Black pigment absorbs all light (i.e. it reflects no
colors) while white (BTW when I am white I am considered gravely ill)
absorbs no light (i.e. it reflects all colors).
