Wow. It's not that black tape eats up your palms quicker than white tape. It's that black tape leaves black residue on the palms so that they look dirty and gross after a few uses. If you only ever used white tape on your handles, the palms of your gloves would LOOK fresher/cleaner. The palm breaks down at the exact same rate regardless. I call utter BS on the 'acidic dye' theory. People who are adamant about only using white tape on their handle, for whatever reason, have simply heard a version of 'colored tape messes up your palms' (as in makes them look dirty) that has been distorted through a broad game of telephone.
