According to Super Symmetry for every particle with half integer spin there is a partner with integer spin and for every particle with integer spin there is a partner with half integer spin. The supersymmetric partners of the quarks would be the squarks.

Quarks are always found in groups of either two or three and the colors of all the quarks in a group of quarks cancel out so that the group of quarks is colorless. Would squarks also be in groups of squarks in which the colors of each squark cancel out so that the group of squarks is colorless?
Gravitons would be my favorite particle as their existence could prove extra dimensions.

Well, Super Symmetry is of course still an out-there idea. So the best answer may well be "who knows what nature has in store!"

But, in theory, the supersymmetric partners should have the same charge-values. So the same electric charge, and the same color charge too. So squarks would have three different color charges, and would need to balance out to white, just like quarks.
