Black and white is only used under two sitches:

-when I want to emphasize contrast.
-when I use infrared.

I think colors tend to prejudice certain tones to the person's eye and get in the way of interesting contrasts that show in the image, so as a result I use it when the subject is in an array of very similar but stark tones.

Infrared is converted to black and white because infrared is only one tone and it's this purplish-pink tone. It's not very ascetically pleasing unless you remove the tone although I have had a few incidents where the removal of the infrared tone alone has led to some interesting results, especially since it's the most unobtrusive style of flash photography I've ever used.
