In simple words :-

White Hat SEO = Good and honest

Black Hat SEO = Bad and Cheating

Unique content - Good point for the list.

Building links by doing site submissions to directories, se's, rss, blog , articles (manually) and wait for the results from google for that.

Google likes Good and unique content.

Don't do spamming, spam advertisements and don't use black hat seo to get the top position in google. Because by doing this your site will come up in google for temporary basis but by doing legally or good manner you will get your prize definitely.

Hi,
White Hat SEO methods means generally approved by search engines, such as building content and improving site quality.
Black hat SEO methods means there are many ways to trick search engine spiders into believing they are viewing something they are not.These sites will try spamming,cloaking,hiding keywords by making the background and text the same color as well as many other little nasty tricks.
Its just a matter of time before they are caught and then google drops them from the listings for unethical porposes.
This site is all about Black SEO

Directory submission cannot be said as directory spamming,,its totally different what you are saying.

We submit our website to direcoties to make our website known to the people all over and by doing search engine submission or directory submission or article submission you make your website reach (popular) to the surfers all over.

It's the same as black hat SEO, but they're better talkers & know how to use bleach.

The actual line between the two is quite thin, but, Black Hat SEO refers to things that are considered dark, or spammy, while White Hat SEO refers to "good" SEO. I determine Black Hat SEO as anything that, A. breaks any search engines rules, B. effects the users experience on the site for the worse, or C. shows different content to different user-agents.

White Hat SEO is a seo technique that is good and honest in promoting the site online. SEO technique that follows the guideline that Google published and produced organic result.

Black Hat : techniques or tactics which have been defined by Google as in violation of the Google “Quality Guidelines” (see “Quality Guidelines, which outline some of the illicit practices that may lead to a site being removed entirely from the Google index”) . The Black Hat label applies to those methods specifically mentioned n the “Guidelines”, other methods and/or tactics or circumstances mentioned by Matt Cutts in his blog, in Matt’s comments on others’ blogs, or just about anywhere anyone from Google says anything that strongly suggests Google took action against a site for some specific reason. Black Hat SEOs know what they are doing is defined as BAD, and do it anyway for specific reasons (not usually including “get banned”). I like to think of Black Hat SEOs as opportunists. They see an opportunity to gain, and take it, managing the associated risk. Please don’t confuse ignorant SEOs with Black Hat SEOs… the ignorant ones are those who execute on Black Hat (evil) tactics without managing the risks (either out of ignorance or folly doesn’t matter to me here).

White Hat: techniques or tactics which can be defended as NOT being contrary to the spirit of Google’s expressed quality desires, by citing Google’s own published guidelines, Matt Cutts’ blog posts, or comments posted in other places, or just about any other Google communication. I like to refer to White Hat SEOs as “conservatives” of the SEO world… where things are viewed as BLACK or WHITE (GOOD or BAD), and the letter of the Google god is taken verbatim as TRUTH. Yes, there is a bit of a timeline problem with that approach (if Matt said it was bad in 2002, is it still bad?) but that’s just the tip of the White Hat iceburg.

Grey Hat (or Gray Hat): Since the color gray is between black and white, logically Grey Hat SEO sounds like a label for the middle ground. But it’s not. Because White is pure white and grey is a shade of black, we have confusion. Some say Grey Hat is NOT White Hat and is just a shade of Black Hat. So let’s step away from the coor wheel and define Grey Hat as the practice of tactics/techniques which remain ill-defined by all that published material coming out of Google, and for which reasonable people (not White Hat SEOs, mind you, but “reasonable people”) could disagree on how the tactics support or contrast with the “spirit” of Google’s published guidelines.

White Hat is a practice of doing SEO in the cleanest and fairest way. Following the webmaster's guidelines

Black Hat's the other way around and is at risk of being banned.
