The glyph contains three contours. You're deleting only one at a time.
  1. The outer large black circle is a clockwise contour
  2. The inner white circle is an anticlockwise contour
  3. The black arrow is a clockwise contour
After deleting the first outer glyph the glyph contains contours with incorrect directions, but since they are both incorrect and opposite directions, the arrow changes to white. If you reverse the direction of only the small black circle, the arrow will also become black.

If you want to delete all three contours at once, Select All (Ctrl A) first, then press delete.
