tkbslc's comment still stands. your opinion is valid in your context but is showing no relevance at all to the market the camera is targeted for. just as a number of consumers in that market may have similarly strong points of view regarding the insistence of manufacturers to build black bodies.
What sort of market wants a toy camera? It's too expensive and too functional to be a child's toy, but what adult would be seen in public carrying the camera equivalent of a Super Soaker wáter gun? Can't imagine anyone in Australia, or Singapore, or India, or Brazil, or Dubai, wanting to buy one.
At least black and silver cameras are 'standard' and won't look out of place in anyone's hands. Some - Leicas, for example, and some mirrorless cameras - even manage to make technology look classy. Even a red camera can stand out in the right way if the design's right, although probably more for point-and-shoot bodies. But a white plastic body with rounded safety edges is different entirely...
