As I understand it (which is not to any great extent), there are different types of pu-er which are fermented to different degrees, so some will be considered green and others black.

And yes, as far as I know, you're right about the black tea/red tea thing. I actually found this out just a couple of days before I had it demonstrated to me via an interesting context-switching error. I was talking to a member of staff in a restaurant about the dish I was going to order, using a few Chinese terms but otherwise all in English, and then I asked for some iced tea and instead of asking if I wanted green or black, she asked if I wanted green or red — which did sound peculiar in English, but I knew what she meant :)
