"It is black."

No clue why this isn't noire.

If you don't know if it's masculine or feminine you use the male form. So it's 'noir' instead of 'noire'.

But it could very well be a female. Thanks anyway. :)

It can't be male nor female, since "it" implies you are talking about an object, as opposed to a human being. However, if the object is masculine you use "noir", if feminine you use "noire".

thanks. I had no clue as to when I should use noire or noir before now.
