Black for another reason, too. White, the usual other color, is far 
more sensitive to the UV in sunlight. UV, apparently, messes up 
the molecular structure of the white ones causing them to break 
more quickly if exposed to a lot of sunlight.

Whether this will be a factor for the average bloke doing 
photography; who knows?
