Discuss this oxymoron in the comments below.
White means pure.A statement which is not true but can be used for the goodness of the other person is a white lie.
if White means Pure than a “white lie” is a “Pure lie” pure means completely, which means a “Completely Lying” so a “Little White lie” would be the oxymoron but a white lie is usually accurate.
What? If White means Pure? I can do that too!If White means “Megan Sadler” and lie means “is retarded” then a white lie is always accurate.White has also been used to represent death, peace, innocence (which is supposedly the actual case here – innocent lies, not malicious), surrender, virginity, holiness, albinism, yang… maybe you get the idea. Anyone can say anything means something else and have anything they say mean anything, which is what makes your “explanation” up there just… just awful.Btw, “explanation” means “amalgamation of words assembled seemingly at random to the unlikely-yet-fortunate outcome of appearing as tangible thoughts.”
