Advantage of paint brush with black bristles?

We got a 5 pack of paint brushes at Lowes for $3.48. One is marked on the handle as having black bristles. What is the difference (advantages)  between black and say brown? Thanks.

    It's not the color but what the bristles are made of that makes a difference.

    The black is probably a man-made material (at that price, probably plastic), the brown a natural like boar. The desirable feathering of the ends is found only on the natural bristles.

    The cheaper brush may have plastic bristles that break off into the paint.
