The color algebra with the outer product [u,v]A=ifABC(uBvC+vCuB) is studied for the case of three-quark sources. It is shown to contain two Abelian elements which annihilate the color-singlet state and a sixteen-element ideal which contains an eight-element subalgebra isomorphic to u(2) (2). The Jacobi identity is not satisfied on the whole algebra. The quantity that measures the breakdown of the Jacobi identity is calculated.
