Is white really a color?

That depends

It depends upon whom you ask. Scientists consider black to be the absence of light (and colour if you like) and white to be the presence of all colors. Fine artists, on the other hand, believe the complete reverse: white is the absence of color.

A housepainter would say it is

To a painter, if you can get it in a can, it's a color.
