Since you are using a terminal with black background and white foreground.

There are several ways, since you are using X window, the easiest way
is to put the following into your ~/.Xdefaults file.

emacs*Foreground: white
emacs*Background: black

Then run 
$ xrdb -load .Xdfaults
If you start emacs after that , you should have your GUI emacs with
the color theme as you textmode emacs.

There are some other GUI options you can tweak, it is a good idea to
check the emacs info, i.e. from emacs, do
"C-h i m Emacs m Resources X"

Maybe "M-x color-theme-dark-laptop"?
