If I get fans with blades that are not black, should I paint them black?

I heard that black fan blades produce better windflow. Also I wouldn't want to disappoint the SJW crowd by not giving blades of color a chance.

Maybe it's racist to put non-natively-black fan blades in blackblade.

What interesting rule of physics would you be basing the assumption on that "black fan blades produce better airflow?" How could the color of the blades possibly have any effect on efficiency of moving air?

Clearly you have no idea of Krenzke's theorem on how varying wavelengths of light impact Bernoullian fluid dynamics.

Granted... I'm not a physicist. Well, if you want to try painting the blades black based on a theory (not a law) of physics, nothing to stop you. I'm curious how you intend to test the difference between the colors and tell whether you actually improved anything detectable at all...

I'd LOVE to see this source.
