I've never given that any thought, I suppose yellow represents a kind of light, kids always colour the sun yellow on their drawings so I guess you could say thats good.

Orange is like the colour of fire a kind of orangey - red so that could be closer to bad?

Though I don't see those colours representing good or bad.

The standard colours would be Black is bad and White is good, I wonder what that says about me? I own hardly any white clothes and a lot of black or dark coloured clothes, hmm.

I don't think any colours are evil. Black isn't 'evil', it's a contrast of white! And with thatr reasoning, the evening is the most hazardous and 'evil' time of the day; I think it's the most beautiful time..
I tihnk we should talk in terms of 'Cool' and 'Warm' colours.

Cool
White
Blue
Green
Silver [not a colour as such; grey]
Generally all light colours

Warm
Red
Orange
Black
Brown
Purple
Yellow [although this can be Cool as well, IMO]
&c. All 'darker' colours.

Black is generally used as the portrayal of evil though, in films they dress the baddies in all black so it has become known as an 'evil' colour.

Oh, like that. I don't think any colours are evil; it's just matter of who's using them and for what purpose. There are colours that I like better than others, but I don't see colours I don't like as necessarily evil.
Colours that I like:
Green
Blue
Yellow
Red
Purple

Colours that I don't like:
White
Black
Brown
Orange

Moving on the whim of the military
Colors will always represent different things to different people. .. I have two colors of blue I associate with a guy I really like due to a coat and a plaid shirt he used to wear all the time . ..
Blue is my favorite color, so it is good.

When I write I tend to put my bad guys in dark reds, blood reds.

Colors can also effect moods, of course.
