The color “White” depicts an image of purity and innocence. This color is being used in various ways. One of the most common ways is wearing white clothes/dress in occasions like wedding, funeral, etc.
In Japan, there are two books, 'In praise of shadows' by Junichiro Tanizaki and ‘White’ by Kenya Hara, that tell us the aesthetic representation of this color.
There is a so called-white violence. White is being represented by peace or laws that govern to keep the community peaceful. However, peace can be difficult to maintain and laws are sometimes hard to follow, so crimes and violence happen. These crimes and violence are being represented by different colors as opposed to white. So this is the explanation of 'White Violence' in the video that I made.
