Tropes in Black
"I see my red door and I want it painted black..."
The Rolling Stones, "Paint it Black"

Black is the darkest color we can see — it is the absence of light, and thus the absence of light reflection. Its symbolism can be culturally complex — depending on culture, it can symbolize death, or it can symbolize evil. In a more neutral sense, it can symbolize darkness and the night. In other senses, it can symbolize refined formality or financial security. And because human beings also come in this color, it can also be a powerful (and sensitive) symbol of superficial differences in human complexion.

This index also includes Race Tropes where the color black is literally or symbolically invoked for whatever cultural reasons. Remember the Rule of Cautious Editing Judgment.

This is a subindex of Gray Tropes, as black is the darkest shade of gray.
