Depends on perspective. Regarded as a big fire ball, the colour is multi-variant: orange as main colour with many red and black spots. As a round celestial body on a blue sky in summer, its white. In sunset time, the sun has a nice red-orange-yellow-touch. During a lunar eclipse, the sun is black for a while. As you can see, the sun has not a clear colour.(Original post by Kyx)
colour can be defined as the wavelength of light an object emits or reflects
the sun emits white light; THE SUN IS WHITE
The sun doesn't reflect any light. the absence of light is darkness, which is black: THE SUN IS BLACK
What colour is the sun? just for fun I am going to say black.

It's a remarkable coincidence that we've evolved visual apparatus that has a peak sensitivity at the same wavelength as the peak emission from our source of natural light
I wonder if there's intelligent life evolved on a planet orbiting a red dwarf star wondering why their sunlight is so awfully red... or would they just perceive it as colourless?
