Is a white sheet of paper more blank than a blank sheet of paper?
I think a white piece of paper is more blank than a white piece of paper. To make the paper white it is bleached. To make a piece of paper black you would need to dye it. The amount of dye it intakes is probably more than the amount of bleach left in white paper. Therefore when you come to think about it properly the white paper will seem more blank. Also, in some cases, I think the paper is bleached and then dyed to make it black.
