It's not that black is white, it's that black and white are both the same thing in one sense (monochrome contrast), similar things in another sense (one of the group of things we call colors), and opposite things (black = absence of white). The important part is the multiplicity of senses and the relation of that multiplicity to symmetry and opposition.
