Rather than throw away color support altogether, you could tell Emacs
that your terminal has a dark background, in which case it will choose
saner colors for your situation (in general Emacs can't know the
background color of your terminal and it by default presumes it's
a light color, IIRC).  E.g.:

    emacs -nw -Q --eval "(setq frame-background-mode 'dark)"

Of course, you may still prefer not using colors at all, and I have
nothing against that.
