No (like most creatures they can suffer from Albinism) Black Bears come in a variety of colors. Black, Cinnamon (brown), White (not albino, though they do come in albino …as well), and Blonde.

Well, the name is almost self-explanatory. Black bears appear to be black or a very dark brown.

Well, as they are called black bears, a black bears tongue is actually blue.
That isn't a subspecies. Black bears differ in color. Most are black, but some are brown, and a few are cream colored. For the most part, these differences can exist between i…ndividuals of the same subspecies (although the subspecies Ursus Americanus Cinnamomum is known for being reddish brown), but non-black individuals are more prevalent in certain geographic areas. Cream colored bears are mostly found in the northwestern United States, though not by the coast.
Smokey is a cartoon character, of course, but the living symbol of Smokey Bear was in fact an orphaned American Black bear (Ursus americanus) cub found in 1950 as a result of …the devastating springtime Capitan Gap wildfire in the Lincoln National Forest near Taos, New Mexico. Originally named 'Hotfoot Teddy', he was soon hustled off to the National Zoo (with a name-change) in Washington, DC, where he became so popular that the US Postal Service gave him his own ZIP Code! (20252) After a lifetime of public service regarding the protection of his forest friends' homes, his remains were buried at the Lincoln National Forest. Black bears in the eastern US are indeed black, and the black-colored coat seems to predominate in moist areas. But in the central part of the country they begin to lighten up to shades of brown, even cinnamon-colored, blond, and white. Only fifty percent of Black bears in the Rocky Mountains are black. A blue-tinged variant occurs along coastal Alaska and British Columbia, Canada. Please see the 'Kermode bear' link below regarding the white-colored 'Spirit' black bear, Ursus americanus kermodei. Please see the related link about Smokey Bear, too!
Does a black bear have any protective markings or colorings that help it to be protected against predators?
Bears do not have or need such markings; they are large, powerful animals, and any prospective predators can easily see how large a bear is.
They are born like most mammals only they are born during hibernation and their mothers are asleep. Baby bears are often as small as chipmunk's and find their way towards the …mothers to cradle up and drink the mothers nutritious milk to grow and have thicker fur.
