Not the visible spectrum from red to violet, dumbasses. The visible spectrum from black to white.

At what frequency in the visible spectrum do we find black light, oh wise one?
This is my first and probably my last post on this thread. I had this "no black'n'white, no gray" debate with a friend in college. Said friend became really offended when I said that "Black and white are merely abstractions of gray." But I never said that there were not in fact whiter or blacker grays, or that just because these gradations exist on a continuum we can never say this or that is not, for the most part, wrong or right.
This seems to be the same conversation: If no absolute black or white, then all is the same shade of gray, ergo moral relativism! Which is ludicrous.
Which came first: the shimmy, or the hip?
