No, you're missing the point.
We're not putting a big black box over the emblem. It isn't a big swipe/roll of paint trying to cover something up. It's just a color change, because we like the new color better.
The emblem is still there, certainly displaying the brand. Maybe it's black on black and doesn't stand out as much as the gold/chrome stock color, but matches the color scheme of the truck much better. Maybe it's a black bowtie on a yellow truck, which actually stands out more....but yet you still think that's an attempt to hide something?
For argument's sake:
Same truck in the top left corner, but with a black bowtie:
The black one jumps out much more, you could say it even draws attention to it compared to the stock gold one that blends in with the yellow.
Here's an older picture of my truck, do you really think a gold bowtie on the front would look as good as the black one, which matches the rest of the color scheme? You may even notice I painted the bowties in the wheel center caps black, which I think also draws attention to them, rather than covering them up like you claim.
Maybe the problem is you're trying to compare it to a Ford, where the logo has something written on it? The Chevy and GMC logos don't lose anything when you change the color, there isn't any script which gets covered up, it's really just a color change.
