darker colours absorb all or a part of the light (including infra red), heating up the balloon's surface where the sunlight is concentrated, causing its rupture white colour reflects (and scatters) most of the light (incl. IR) > no heating up > no rupture.

Almost like we should paint our roadways and rooftops white instead of black

Rooftops, perhaps. It's done in warmer climates, like Bermuda. Roadways would reflect too much light, and increase the likelihood of accidents. Now if all vehicles were self-driving and the roads gave out signals it could work, but then the question is why.

It has to do with the high amounts of melanin produced in the skin. Dark pigments in the skin protects DNA from sun damage.

What about the blue balloon inside the white one, why did it burst , I mean if white reflects all the infrared the how did heat reach the blue balloon inside the white one?

The balloon is only partially opaque, a lot of IR gets through but still not much gets absorbed
