Here are the known cases for this kind of problem:
- Your screen's colors are off-base.  Some possible cases are if you're
  running within an xterm whose color palette is more limited than usual
  or is somehow different from what Emacs expects.
- Emacs mis-identifies your background color and chooses the
  light-background set of colors rather than the dark-background set
  (or vice-versa).
  In this case, customizing frame-background-mode may help.
- Your vision is impaired.

I assumed you were in the third case, but maybe not.
