The color in relation to the temperature of the part has to do with its ability to absorb energy from light.
Amen! I agree that some of the bad info regarding this topic is due to confusion with the rate and amount of heat absorption from sunlight. It makes no sense that the color outside of an object can affect the amount of heat radiated from within.
