does color matter?

The outside of a black hole
is equally as black as
the inside of a black hole
When discussing black holes
our conversation should
never move passed the color
Unless of course we consider
white to be a color
And ask If a black hole is the absence
of matter and white is the
absence of color why isn’t a
black hole white?
I suppose the absence of matter
has nothing to do with
the absence of color

Similarly (though not)
The outside of a person
is equally as colorless as
the inside of that person

john kropa (Redbank, NJ, 1990)

The white hole might be the light at the end of the tunnel?

& I think the colours inside all of us is mostly shades of red.
