Blue, red, black, white

The colours blue. The colours red. The colour black. The colour white.

This asymmetry must disturb us, or how else to explain our baffling habit of talking about black and white as if they have the range and variety of hues as other colours? Pitch black, ink-black, Bible-black, none-more-black, pure white, snow white, milky white, clear white.
