This is the stupidest thing ever. I don't understand it. I thought the idea was for cameras to be stealthy and not obvious. You can't hide a white camera. If someone's determined to get into your house or break into your car, they will see the camera and will do their best to hide their face completely defeating the purpose of the camera (to catch thieves off guard).

Does anyone have any explanation for this profound stupidity?

about half the cameras I install are white & the other half are charcoal. Not much call for yellow or green

Did you even give this the slightest bit of thought?
1) cameras are not intended to be stealth...most are there as a deterrent.
2) cameras are often mounted on white surfaces, like overhangs, ceilings , soffit...
3) white stays cooler in direct sun
I dont think you understand the purpose of surveillance...
