Kinda weird for anyone to picture nothingness as black. After all
black is absolute color where as white is the absence of color.
I suppose that depends on where you identify.
Assuming we're speaking of light, if an object is "black" then it absorbs all the colors of light that reach it. So yes...the black object "is/has" those colors. But in absorbing all of those colors it releases none, and so they do not reach your eye for you to see.
Whereas in the white object, all frequencies are released to your eye, and thus while the object itself might not "be/have" those colors, you are able to perceive them because it gives them to you.
Therefore black means something is there and white
refers to the fact that nothing is there.
The white is where something is there...for you.
