Well I have a black cat and she is adorableeeee and certainly not bad luck xD The black cat superstitions are so antiquated nowadays buddy, they are neither good or bad luck:)

I'm not superstitious, so until a black cat proves to be good or bad luck to me personally, it's just a black cat and that's all there is to it.

One thing that is a fact, not a myth, about black cats is that black cats are the least likely to be adopted at cat shelters.

I love black cats and their absurd association with bad luck and the occult is unfortunate, especially if people aren't even adopting them. My last cat was black and lived to be 21 years old--he was also the most mellow cat I ever knew.

We need more black cat love!

"I'm not superstitious... but I'm a little stitious." - Michael Scott

But really, I don't believe in most superstitions such as a black cat crossing your back, stepping on cracks in pavement/sidewalks, or Friday the 13th. But in the same breath I might think twice about walking under a ladder, breaking a mirror, and I generally knock on wood if I feel I need to :P

I generally see the colour of cats' fur to be uncorrelated with perceptions of good or bad luck.

(That's me talking oddly, but you get my drift.)

Nah, they aren't bad luck. I've grown up my entire life with black cats. My last one was named Cleo. She lived to be 20, that legend. I currently have another black cat named Cosmo. Here are two photos of him.
