First, lets look at the sun color. The sun color looks white but is actually made up of all the colors, like one would find in the rainbow. It is just all of its light particulars are condense making it white light.
Okay, now let look at the earth's atmosphere. It is made up of tons of gasses creating the ozone, in turn all of these gasses are made up of tiny particulars and molecules that freely flowing through one another, and the ozone acts as a filter like a prism.
So, when the sun's white light hit the earth's prism the sun's light begins get scatter/filter through the ozone, bouncing off and between each particular/molecule in the air. However, because blue light is a shorter wave length than the other color lights. Thus, blue is scattered more and this is why we see a blue sky most of the time.... At different time of day the sky will turn different colors or closer to the horizon the sky will fade to lighter colors or to white.
So, that is why the sky appeared to have some kind of color or tint to it. However, sky will differ if ones optic nerve or/and eyes' rods and cones are different. That explain why some only see like black and white or certain tints.
