Are you a

Chalk Board or a Black board

Obsessed with the color white,

White chalk goes on it.

Stroked left and right,

Drawing left to right.

Giving the lessons of life,

They are in schools.

Still left with dirt inside,

There is residue left on them.

Take your take and tell what am I?

Umm, I am not sure.

The whiter I get more the dirty I am.

And it does get dirty when white goes on it because it is not black anymore.

    $\begingroup$ @Maniraj - Not to take anything away from QuantumTwinkie's answer, but you could have given Clarkey252 a bit of a nudge that he/she was heading in the right direction with Clarkey252's answer. $\endgroup$ – Phylyp May 25 '18 at 16:10

I think you are:

Chalk

Explanation:

Obsessed with the color white,

Chalk is usually white (not too sure about the obsessed bit)

Stroked left and right,

Giving the lessons of life,

Reference to teaching

Still left with dirt inside,

Chalk often has small amounts of impurities

Take your take and tell what am I?

I think this refers to the board used in filming to mark takes (which were traditionally written on with chalk)

Are you

Correction fluid?

Obsessed with the color white,

Correction fluid is white and it is used as a drug.

To cover a mistake you stroke the white-out on it

As for the hint and the title:

They both contain a mistake to be covered with correction fluid!

My guess:

An iPhone

Obsessed with the color white,

Apple devices are often white.

Touch phones are often controlled by swiping.

  • $\begingroup$ @NiranjPatel My impression is that most non-Apple devices tend to be silver or black. $\endgroup$ – Angew May 25 '18 at 13:45

You are a

TOOTHBRUSH

Title: Magic Dirt on ME : This ai'nt something unusual

The magic dirt is the paste used with a toothbrush, paste has a gritty feeling
Nothing unusual about a toothbrush & toothpaste, it is a daily use item

Obsessed with the color white,

Whiter teeth are a big selling point of toothbrushes (and toothpaste)

Stroked left and right,

The brushing action

Giving the lessons of life,

Brushing one's teeth is among the earliest lessons from a parent to a child

Still left with dirt inside,

Toothbrushes hold germs (slight guess here!)

Take your take (I presume this is take your time?)

Take your time brushing, don't rush it

HINT

The whiter I get more the dirty I am.

Toothbrushes fade with use, meaning that coloured bristles lose their colour (bit of a guess again!)

My Guess:

A Beard, or more specifically an old man's beard

Obsessed with the color white:

Beards usually turn white as people get older

Stroked left and Right:

People tend to stroke their beards when thinking

Giving he lessons of life:

If talking about an older person, they would have much more life experience and can give out lessons of life

Still with dirt left inside:

Not too sure about this one!

Take your take and tell what I am:

Beards take time to grow

$\endgroup$
