Stop using colored text.
Websites fail when visitors cannot read it and easily navigate it. .
I am a senior who is losing my vision - which is different than "color-blind". Crayon colors, neon colors, faded colors, and colored backgrounds make it nearly impossible for many of us to SEE and READ the text.
Black on white is the defacto color combination for readers; please use it. And please don't forget to use a gutter (border) on the sides of each side, too.
Aside: When I created websites I asked handicapped visitors to rate: readability, usability and colors. What I learned is browsers do not parse characters or colors equally, and monitors are different too. I cannot stress enough that the boring black on white are the best colors for readers -- if you intend to provide information.

I prefer anything but black and white. It's difficult to say the least to read black letters on a white background, it hurts and after a very few minutes my vision is all blurry no matter what I am looking at.

I agree. Use bigger fonts, as an example - http://www.bloomberg.com/research/stocks/people/person.asp?personId=526927&ticker=SCHL this font looks so much easier on the eye.
