Answer From Wikipedia.

   It was previously believed that zebras were White Animals With Black Stripes, since some zebras have white underbellies. Embryological evidence, however, shows that the animal's background color is black and the white stripes and bellies are additions. The stripes are typically vertical on the head, neck, forequarters, and main body, with horizontal stripes at the rear and on the legs of the animal. The "zebra crossing" is named after the zebra's black and white stripes. It has been suggested that the stripes serve as visual cues and identification. With each striping pattern unique to each individual, zebras can recognize one another by their stripes. 

Answer From Answer Bag

Well, since there appears to be more white on the average zebra, than there is black, I would say white with black stripes.

Answer From

   A Zebra is white with black stripes. The underbelly of the Zebra is white, and the black stripes stop, ending in a point. Therefore, a Zebra is white with black stripes. 

Answer From Jim Loy

   Is the zebra a white animal with black stripes, or a black animal with white stripes? My dictionary says that they have "black or dark-brown stripes on a whitish background." And, zebras sometimes have a light-colored belly with no stripes (usually the belly is striped, too). That would seem to settle the above question, although my encyclopedias mention black (or dark brown) and white stripes, and do not mention any background.

   A light-colored belly is not very strong evidence, as many animals, of many colors and species have light-colored bellies. It is not a strong indication of the true color of such animals. So, a zebra may be black with white stripes, and sometimes have a light-colored belly.

Answer From Blurt It

   It is thought that zebras are dark animals, with white stripes appearing where the hair has no black pigment, so the zebra is technically black with white stripes. There is some evidence to back up this theory - the pigment only occurs in the hair, not in the skin of the animal, so it is not an outward appearance of an underlying black and white skin pattern. Also, the now extinct relative of the zebra, the quagga, had stripes on its front end but had a solidly dark rear end.

Answer From Global Animal
   Ah… the Great Zebra Debate. Are they white with black stripes or vice versa? Kingdoms and friendships have fallen because of this debate, but here goes:
   After doing a bit of research,  the common consensus among reputable sources is that zebras are black with white stripes. Now, before anyone who disagrees takes my head off, you should know that there is actually a bit of logic and science behind this reasoning. First, most zebras have darker skin underneath their coats. Second, fair skinned equids would not have fared well over the centuries in the unforgiving hot, arid African regions. Third, scientists believe that zebras diverged from a solid-colored equine, with the African Wild Ass (Equus africanus) being the first species to appear after this diversion followed by the Plains Zebra (Equus quagga- aka the Common Zebra).

So, Which one is the correct answer?
Black with white stripes? OR White with black stripes?

"Are they black with white stripes, or white with black? Some say it depends on how you look at it. But it's probably a combination of factors that make the zebra striped-- a pattern of dark striping, plus another pattern that makes light hair.

In most horse color patterns, white is a secondary pattern imposed over a base color. For example, a pinto is never white with black spots, no matter how small the black area is; it is always black with white patterns.

In most horse colors, white hairs appear over pink skin. Zebras, however, have black skin. So their base color is probably dark with a white pattern.

However, when zebras are bred to horses-- the offspring is called a zorse-- the babies are often horse-colored with darker stripes!
The striping isn't always black, however; sometimes it is just a darker version of the base color (for example, a chestnut zorse will have deeper red stripes)."
