The color black symbolizes power, authority, and mysterious to me.
Black simply means power, mystery, darkness, uncanny, absurd, foundation, etc.
There are two powers in the universe which is similar to the power of polarity. Darkness and light. What things are seen and manifest to the world have their foundation in the dark.
The bible says whatsoever shall be spoken in the dark will be proclaimed at the housetop.

When I think about colour black, I don't think about the skin colour. Maybe because blacks (Africans) more often than not are not BLACK as whites are not WHITE.
Blacks are more brownish. I love when Halle Barrie says "as a woman of colour". I am thinking "What colour would that be?" But bear with me, I am a cosmopolitan, I come from Russia.
I like dark skin and the contrast, yet some people are beautiful regardless of skin colour and some are ugly. Unfortunately.
But the colour "black" - it is sort of indifferent until you go outside and everybody wears black.
My thoughts "People, what is wrong with you? Do you have no imagination?" I prefer colour, as in bright colour, I prefer light, as in bright light. African women traditionally also wear bright colours. So, there you go. Black. Colour.
Black serves only to contrast it. I try to avoid living my life "In Black",
Remember "The Heart of Darkness"?
"The Horror, the horror!!!"
Black isn't a colour - strictly speaking - it's the absence of colour or, some would argue, a shade: with white at one extreme and black at the other, and all the myriad shades of grey in between.
I wouldn't say, either, that black symbolizes something.
It certainly has association's - some good - some bad. British people tend to associate black with funereals - not good.
Fashionwise it looks good on some people; not so good on others. Every woman should, I think, own at least one black dress - with the, eye-catching, 'little black number' being preferred. It certainly makes me sit up and pay attention.
As for a black suit on a guy - not for me. I tend to chain smoke so watching where all the cigarette ash is falling becomes something of a bind.
As for black skin - well, for me, that would be like the 'little black number' - it would all depend on who was wearing it.
I can't say it particularly symbolizes anything to me. I like how I look in black because it makes light/medium hair look better. Other than that, I think what black, as a color, "symbolizes" depends on what it is that's black - a car? a dress? bananas that were left out in the trunk in Winter? LOL Office equipment?
For me, the only two colors I kind of use if I want to represent something are different shades of gray or else blue (as in trying to create a "mood" on something like a website).
Well, for once, black is not a color.
But for its symbolism, I always relate black for the night, for formality and above all for mystery.
Black is the color of the unknown, mystery, sexy, calm, silence,confidence, depth, power, and when it comes to business and money being "in the black" is a very good thing! :-)
Well, black is not a color, for me, black symbolizes mystery and power.
What is black? Black emcompasses many things. It's the OTHER anti-color. It is night, It is darkness. It is the unknown. It is sensuality. It is understated chic. It is so many things and.....MORE read more
