I don't understand the arguement...biko, what colour is this dress?

The dress above has got everyone talking- CNN, TIMES, folks on twitter. People are clashing over what colour it is. You would think everyone would agree on what colour it it but no o, the debate has been going on for two days now.

A Tumblr user named Swiked posted the pic of the dress on online on  Feb. 25, and wrote "Guys please help me - is this dress white and gold, or blue and black? Me and my friends can't agree…"

Twitter & Facebook exploded with opinions and reactions. Some are saying it's White & Gold, while others insist it's Blue & Black. Biko, my people, what colour is this dress? Even US celebrities, including Taylor Swift and Julianne Moore got involved. See some tweets after the cut.

The whole idea about the cloth is not the color. When you open the video, it makes a porno sound and makes people think you are watching porn. its just a title to make you open the video.

Many people are missing the point here.

It's a lesson to the world that in most cases, perspective differs. You only see what your eyes want to see. Nobody is right or wrong. Just perspective here.

Your perspective is borne from what you percieve, your earlier experience and what you were taught.

The color you think may be true. It may be that the cloth was thrown into ray of fluorescent light or colored light and those seeing the other colors sense it.

This being said, people see things differently. If people cannot agree on a simple color of dress, what more politics, religion, existence of God, morals, sexual orientation. You shouldn't take a simple idea which is your own perspective and kill people or insult people over it. Remember there are other sides of wheel... there is a static thing and people view it from different angles based on their experience.

You see, even one reader said it's one color and berated others who saw another, calling them color blind. Now he came back and saw a thing different from what he saw before...that is life 4 u.

This is the lesson I got from this dress thing.
