Money, "dump it" in your wallet.

I'm pretty sure "dompet" also means "purse"

Right, but in our culture, "dompet" is a small holder where you keep your money and cards (wallet). Purse, which is bigger and can hold more than cards and money, will be called 'tas' or 'tas kecil' (small bag). 'Tas' is adopted from Dutch word.

"My wallets are black" should also be correct shouldnt it?

Technically yes. But without context, it'll be very unlikely
