"actually, technically, while in principle i would agree with most of your logic, white is the combination of all colors, black is the absence of
color, that's why space is black, it's a void, nothing there"
Both true and false...
When you are speaking of pigments, then black is the combination of all colors. If you were to mix red, yellow, blue, etc. together, you would get
black. When you are speaking instead of light, if you were to shine a white light through a prism, you would then see it separate into colors, so
with light, all colors together are white. Black (as in space) is then the absense of light. Color is only perceived as reflected light, so without
light, or anything to reflect it, you have black.
The first humans were neither black, nor white, but of a race before either, before geographic adaptations that created the races as they are today.
