As a colorblind individual, I can assure you that dark white is a real color.

At our band concert in HS we were all told to wear black socks for a uniform look. I forgot and wore my white socks and when my teacher asked, I told her they were Light Black. I guess she told that story to students years after until she retired.

Is he a smug art student who insists on correcting anyone who uses color names outside of the primary and secondary color groups? >There is no color "pink". That looks like a light, low-intensity red to me. --Me at 19-years-old

I like this guy! He stands up for his dream of dark white!

I was wondering whether this would be on r/facepalm or r/ThatHappened today.

Or maybe light black?

That's kind of adorable.

Aren't we blowing this up a little too much? This is the kind of playful funny thing you laugh at with family. There's a lot of comments in here about how this is emotionally abusive but isn't it equally likely that the family knows the boyfriend and likes him and are just having a laugh with him? There's not really any context here to jump all over this person.

Silver. I always always always say silver. It's my favorite color, but also fun to joke about.

This whole exchange between sister and sister’s boyfriend sounds like a lounge act routine.

Its not Pink! Its Lightish Red!

Mine once said something was "Crispy Clear" at the dinner table instead of "crystal clear." I embarrassed the shit out of him in front of my family. English is my dad's second language and he's asked for "mashed eggs" at a restaurant before.

I like dark white better

Sounds like a stable genius to me.

As someone of Irish descent, my Italian wife says I don't tan... I just get dark white.

Orrrrrr he was just keeping the ruse going?

On the way to a concert, a friend and I picked up some wine for my then gf before picking her up. Leaving the store, he said, "We're gonna need a wine opener..." To which I said, "You mean a corkscrew?" And he said, "No, a wine opener." This resulted in a good natured, but heated discussion about whether [this object](https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/71V9I3XcL8L._SL1500_.jpg) is called a corkscrew or a wine opener. To settle it, we agreed that my girlfriend would be the final word. Now, I was totally confident that she would call it a corkscrew. She was a smart, articulate girl, and we had remarkably similar outlooks on things. There was no doubt in my mind. When she answered the door, without even as much as a hello, my friend and I barreled into the kitchen, found the corkscrew, and said, "What is this thing called?" She looked back and forth between us, confused and amused, and said, as if there could be no other answer, "It's a wine opener."

To be fair, it's actually logically true for coders.

It's pastel black.

Sometimes you just blank on names. My wife once called Storm Troopers "White Vaders" and when I couldn't remember the word "Tortilla" I called it "bread paper".

Or, as my SO puts it, light black..
13 Jan 2018 04:40 - +7
He's not wrong

The world isn't just white and black, many issues are shades of dark white.
13 Jan 2018 02:54 - +6
Perhaps off-white

Gray, oh interesting. Never heard of a color gray, looks pretty good.

My art teacher in High School was very clear on that. There is no such color is pink. That is the color and white shade, extra shade and a color and get a shade of the color, it’s light red. He also one on about the appliance cover from seven, olive green. It is yellow mixed with black, dark yellow. Given all this, I’m on his side with dark white.

I am using it the next time. Dude just casually invented an oxymoron.
13 Jan 2018 02:01 - +4
That's what I'm going to call it from now on..
