Scratch on Black Leather

Is there a way to fix leather scratches? I have a scratch about 4" from my laptop on my passenger seat - looks white. Any ideas on how I can correct this and not look bad?

Did the scratch go through the dye down to the leather itself? If there's still some dye left in the scratch, you could possibly use something like a Magic Eraser to gently sand down the area outside of the scratch. You'll lose a good deal of the leather's protective layer, but it may help in hiding the scratch. Another open is to dye the scratch the color of the leather, or just re-dye the entire scratched portion of leather.
