    This ^ makes sense to me. I've never dreamed in black and white as far as I can remember, and I've often thought that probably nobody had before the invention of photography, maybe even before the invention of motion pictures.

    Although I think there may be something to this though also:

Otherwise it's just my brain-filter doing it's thing.
    But still, I only remember dreaming in color.

    I always thought that when they meant 'Dream in Black and White' they meant that you 'forgot' the dream when you woke up quite completely or felt like you didn't dream at all. Humans have up to 6 dreams per night during REM, they last up to 30 minutes, no longer. Hence the idea of 'dreaming in Black and White'.
