    Black is not.
    Black is the lack of reflection, it absobs all and reflect none
    You don't say a "Non-reflective color cat" it's a "Black cat", so Black in practice can be considered a color.

    I don't see a motive for you having to exclude a "color" unless you playing STOP and that's apply only to like "Orangy-Red" and such
    Only time I have ever heard someone telling me to exclud a color is if I have to do a certain color scheme for a picture, or when using black to make a darker color as according to some(or most) in the artist community using a premade factory black will mess up your picture in terms of how natural it may look instead of a handmade black.

    shade noun, verb, shad·ed, shad·ing.
    –noun 1. the comparative darkness caused by the interception or screening of rays of light from an object, place, or area.
    2. a place or an area of comparative darkness, as one sheltered from the sun.

    I believe thats the correct definition, but by that then in terms of lighting no it can't, but in terms of painting/drawing yes it can, since the only way to get the other colors darker to show shade is by adding white or black.(preferrably a hand made black so it looks more natural)

    No, sweetie, that's the OTHER colours. Er, frequencies of light. Anyway, white is technically what happens when all the prism colours are reflected back to our eyes, making it a colour.

    I would say that only colors which have an exact wavelength are colors, this would make every mix of colors not a color for itself anymore, which is kind of stupid, since any color which isn't 100% homogenous (so anything which isn't coming from a laser) would'nt be a color anymore. So you just got to include mixes in the group of colors. Since White is the mix of all colors and Black the mix of no color (which is a mix too ; ) ) they are both colors.
    my 2 cents.

    Why are we in a debate over this? The fact of whether or not white is a color is not going to solve anything in the world.

    I didn't have time to look through all the posts so don't hate me if I am repeating but...
    In terms of pigments white is the absence of color and Black is the existance of all color but in terms of light, White is the existence of all color and Black is the absence of any color/any light (that is why space, which is a vacuum that light can only travel through is concieved as black, there is nothing in the vaccum to give it a color).
    I learned that from all the extra time I have in Lit. classes and on the internet (ok not really I was so interested I asked my Physics professor).
