I will argue in favor of the resolution that black is indeed not a color.

How black is not a color

1) Let us use Newton's prism to break white light into various wavelengths of each color.



We can measure red, orange, green, etc. However, we can not measure black. Black can not become any more "black" (As we perceive colors). And if we illuminate an area of darkness, even in the very least, the area will no longer be black. It would be gray.

2) Let us use the electromagnetic spectrum.

It consists of every color. Colors reflect themselves, however absorbs every other color. However, black does not reflect any of those colors. It simply absorbs all of them.

Conclusion:

I have come to the conclusion that black is simply the absence of the presences of the visible spectrum colors.

Part of the rules were not for 1st round to only be for acceptance. However, since you are new to the website, this is completely fine. Just remember. And so, your main goal is to argue in favor of the resolution that black is indeed a color.

Also, welcome to the website!
