i'm looking to purchase a hat to protect against the heavy sunrays, does it matter if the hat is black or a dark color?

Yes, dark colours absorb more heat so they will be hotter on your head.

black can hold more heat - but color isn't going to be that important for sun protection (more for potential comfort) ..... more important are the fabrics, what the hat covers (brim size, etc) and other such factors

I bought a black sunhat once, but it made my head so hot and sweaty I hated wearing it! I stick with white or natural straw sunhats now. Don't wear them very often since I live in Oregon - but for our two to three months of sunshine they come in handy!
