And if they knew that there only would be two colors(black and white) which they didn't; they only knew of there being one black dot and no other restrictions to the colors. Had they known that there was both black and white; the guy with the white would have seen two black dots, and he would have been pretty fast at figuring out that he had a white dot on his forehead.
Anyway, I think you made this into a trick question by misunderstanding the original one, but I'm drunk, so I could very well be too stupid to get it at the moment. :P

Since when were these two separate things?

I heard it from a friend. I paraphrased, but I didn't ask the question wrong. The logic is still there--there is only a minimum on the black dots, so the guy with the white dot has no way to tell if he has a black of white dot. He's basically screwed and was never going to get the job. You're drunk, though, so I won't hold it against you.

Not explicit, but it's a reasonable assumption.
