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?

Here is the sun’s spectrum of visible light:

Since it contains almost all wavelengths with only some tiny black spots (in the spectrum), which are created by absorption, it would look white, and we could not see the slight green tint.
