From a particular vantage point, situations, events, emotions, people and life itself, can all look warped and subjective. Everything can be expressed in terms of colors, black, white and gray. White is seeing everything in a positive light. Such "whiteheads" are also known as optimists. Graybeards are the realists. They view everything based on fact and reason. But the blackheads over here, are the pessimists or the gloomy birds. Pessimists always view things in a negative light.
