hey, fun! My band got listed (Blatt is the New Black).

sadly, my domain (newblack.org) was not listed for “orange”. I find this to he a horrible injustice.

#000000 is the new black.

Or #111 if you have one of those new black monitors.

I have to agree with Andrew. #000 is the new black. #000000 would be the old black.

I thought African-American was the new Black.

i’d say “black” was the new black. since you can use color names in css. got ya!

Actually, I’d say “black” is quite possibly the oldest black, because the earliest Netscapes and IE’s supported rudimentary color names in tags (in a terribly inefficient should-it-be-“salmon”-or-“blue-gray” type of manner). My vote is for #000.

So that I don’t feel ravaged by guilt for the rest of my life, I’ll mention that I got it from this guy.
