Save us from the men in black

Throughout the Psalms, King David is praying to be saved from "anshei dumim" - men of blood (see e.g. chapters 26, 55, 56...), the Talmud teaches that the black color of blood, is in reality red that got stricken. Thus the color black is ideational to blood. Thus when saying these Psalms it is proper to have in mind that H"Y should save us from the men in black.

Saba lamented that some of his children were not ultra-orthodox. And also Saba was a man who wore a black had and a black coat.

simha is refering to a p'gam, in which the haluka d'rabanan appears as black (b'n). I think we can all agree that Saba was a man in white. Wearing white is for shabbos, and is also very mesugal for shmiras habris.
