Black Because All Color Is From Light.

White is the color when all colors are reflected from light. Black is when all light is absorbed or when no light exists. All other colors are based with the reflection of a certain wavelength from the light bouncing off an object.
Color is just part of a large bandwidth. The same bandwidth that gives us radio waves, microwaves, UV rays. Kinda in the center are the waves that give color. Because light is a wave, we can see it. If there is no wave, then there can be no color. The color or type of wave is based on its frequency. Interesting thing here, if you scatter a radio wave into a black hole, the singularity will squeeze the wave eventually into a UV wave, but in the process create a beautiful rainbow of color. For more info, just look it up in a physics book under light and wavelengths.
