I have a couple of different pool filter sands and neither are anywhere near white. They are a very natural tan color. Brand probably plays a large role, but it is not fair to say that pool filter sand is white since many of the pool filter sands out there are not white. I've not seen white PFS, personally.
As for the color of lighter sands, how it looks in the bag dry and how it looks in the tank wet are two different things, in my experience.
As for not needing to wash black sand - try that with Tahitian moon sand....
