White pepper is the inside center of a black peppercorn. So ground black pepper is the whole berry and has the black ground look when sprinkled on food. Ground white doesn't have the black look so you don't see it when sprinkled or added to food. In this and other dishes it makes for a clean looking dish.

You can find crushed corn flakes in the supermarket near dried bread crumbs or in the baking aisle.
