In the Middle East, the color black represents sadness and unfairness.

People often wear it on an obsequy (death rites /ceremony). In accounting, black represents a positive income. In the occult black represents darkness, the absence of light, the adversity to all hypocrisy, the boldness of rescuing what's forgotten in the shadows, what's occult. The amalgam of all colors. The obliviousness of outer space, the void or vacum of a black hole that absorbs all mass, matter, even light, compresses it, processes it, keeps whats good, filters and renews whatever is not. As in nature, black represents the quintessence of undesirable matter or matters in all living species fathom, this quintessence keeps nature in balance, in harmony, without it, there would be overpopulation and tons of other problems. Black is the opposite to white, to light, to pureness. White is pure, unstained, uncolored, as a newborn infant that's born pure, then it gets polluted with ideas and experiences throughout its lifetime. Black and white are parameters, there is black and white (positive & negative) in everything that surrounds human eyes, all else in between are the other colors. White repels all light; Black absorbs it (knowledge.)
