what color is the sun

Is it yellow because from Earth it usually looks yellow to us? Or is it white because the sun gives off all wavelengths of light (white light)? Or is it some other color?

Short answer is, yes.

Our sun emits light, in all it’s wonderful spectrum. Our misuse of the term “visible spectrum” is humanity’s incapability to think outside our species. So, saying the sun has a color would deny the existence of the rest of the spectrum.

I will leave it to someone else to go into great detail to what a colorblind individual would perceive.
