Background/Foreground color bug

Hello,

        I believe there is a bug in emacs for setting the bckground and 
foreground
color. I run Emacs on a laptop with Mandrke 9.0. I can change the colors
once Emacs is opened: M-x set-background-color, etc. but the commnd line
options -fg and -bg do not work:

emacs -fg gray60 -bg black filename &

opens emacs as if the options were not put in. Could you please check if
this is a bug or if I'm just doing something wrong. Thank you.
