Yes and no, the REW is a recessive gene but as one of the articles stated, it is very dominating. You don't really know what color the REW gene is hiding until you breed the rabbit to see what color possibilities you get. You may not like the eyes of the ruby-eyed white, but they can be very useful in a breeding program.

Apologies it is recessive. But "because two “cc” genes together negate whatever the other four genes are contributing to the rabbit’s coat color. All color is erased from the fur and eyes."

And I did say I was not well versed at color genetics. Hence why posting here may not be useful to you if you are asking about this topic
