What are some possible reasons my home printer won't print in color?
  
Maybe it's not a color printer
Or your setting say to print in b&w
  
Then tell me why it has buttons for color.

That's not why.
  
I assume your printer isn't low on toner?
Sometimes you need to go to the properties/settings tab and selected colored printing before sending your document to the printer.
  
Impossible to say without any more info. It's a bit like asking why your car might not be shifting out of 1st gear without telling us the make, model, or even if it's an automatic vs manual transmission.

If you want to print in color, just use some ANSI sequences

Those were such a nightmare to figure out when I didn't know anything about how the terminal displayed color and I just wanted my Java code to work. I ended up on several forum posts from before I was born trying to figure out how to use them. I don't know how I had so much difficulty, given how simple it seems now.
  
You've gone colourblind.

I remember now; it wasn't the colors I was having so much difficulty with; rather, I had wanted a way of clearing the terminal and I couldn't figure that out.
