You can't dye something white. You can bleach it. Most all fabric used for anything is bleached. That's not the issue. The dye that is added afterwards to make it black is acidic. It will and does corrode a little in addition to the friction caused by the tape. Colored tape in general will wear your gloves out, black will do it fastest.
