"我不喜歡黃色,我喜歡白色。“ should be the correct answer. 黃的 and 白的 are very colloquial.

I think it is not only talking about the colours, but about the things which have yellow and white colour

I thought 黃色 sands for yellow color and you added 的 when you wanted to say something is "of yellow color".

How am I supposed to understand 黃的 in this sentence? I don't like yellow (things), ...

Can 黄 and 白 stand alone in any circumstances, that is without the 的 and without a 色, or is it grammatically impossible?

我不喜欢黄。我喜欢白。should be accepted
