Black entry door?

We have been told that a black entry door is not the way to go because of heat absorption causing warping, etc. True? The door is on the southwest side of the house under a porch roof and shaded by woods. Thoughts? It is currently dark green.

Black entry door?

If it's shaded and already dark green---and all is well---paint it black---you will be happy and the door should be fine.
