Doing a quick bare bones editing of file:

  emacs -Q  README

On a white terminal[1], the results are unreadable. Please deactivate
font-lock when --no-site-file (as in -Q) option is specified.

[1] Debian; mrxvt 0.5.3-2 terminal

I'm not sure where you got the idea that the above is typical.
"-Q" didn't exist before Emacs-22, so it must a recent form of
"typical".  If speed is an issue, the recommendation is rather to use
emacsclient, which will work even better in Emacs-23.

The real problem you're experiencing is that Emacs apparently cannot
reliably determine the background color of your terminal (it can do that
for recent `xterm' IIRC), so it might think it's dark whereas your
is light.
