Black and white

Still working on this idea and will provide more information and facts to support my reasoning in the future. Several years ago I was led into a discussion about black and white. My take on it initially was that there are many shades of gray in between the two, meaning that what may be good/right for some may not be good/right for all. One side may be more good/right than the other. This way of thinking assumes that both the black and the white are percentages that add together to create 100% and that most times the majority wins, like in an election. However this way of thinking about black and white creates good/winners and bad/losers rather than acknowledging the fact that it is in human nature for people to act good/right. If both sides (black and white) had all of the correct and untwisted information, they would choose to be good/right in the purest sense of the word.
How can you determine if something is black OR white? Perhaps it is 100% black AND 100% white at the same time with both black and white doing what is good/right, in the purest sense of the word. The only condition is that everyone must be a winner to create harmony.

I have determined that whether or not something is black or white determines on its background.
