Can you tell the sex of a Light Brahma chick by it's color?

Are Light Brahma chicks clearly pullets or clearly cockerels when hatched by color? If they are primarily light or mostly dark, is that indicative of their sex?

No. The only ones you can tell the sex by color is in the dark brahmas and even then you have to wait until they start to feather out.
ETA: When I say "only" I'm talking about of the three colors commonly available in the US - light, darks, and buffs.
