White sugar is colourless. When in a pile of crystals, the crystals
refract light all over the place. If the light is white, the sugar looks
white too. Pick out one grain and look closely, it has no colour.

White sugar is also more pure precisely because it has been refined
more. Raw sugar is less refined and still has impurities in it which
give it colour, and brown sugar has some of the impurities from refining
white sugar added back to it.
