Your subject made me think you were talking about --reverse-video -nw,
which is http://debbugs.gnu.org/4238, but I guess you aren't.

So set the foreground colour too, or use eg

emacs -nw -fg white -bg black

Oh I see. You are using emacs -nw inside a transparent terminal
emulator, and Emacs detected the background mode as dark when it should
have been light (or vice versa), and manually specifying colours loses
the transparency effect.
