I didn't see another color. Am I broken? Or perhaps it means I'm not racist?

Because we're all looking at it on different monitors?

I mean, in a proper scientific experiment that would be controlled. Maybe they did that, but this is a Daily Fail link so I'm not going to bother reading to find out.

I got purplish-black, but only in the central circle.

I bet it's different sampling frequencies for different photoreceptors in different people. Could also have something to do with the radial distribution of receptors from the center of the eye.

It would be easy to test the sampling frequency hypothesis by making small changes to the frame rate, and seeing if the colors an individual saw changed.
