This should be fairly easy to correct, as the site uses CSS stylesheets.
Colour blind people can use a custom stylesheet or use none so that
everything is written black on white.  Of course, it'd be great if there
was a link on the top to switch to a high-contrast stylesheet.
 

Note that these reddish colours are somewhat of a tradition in the Ruby
world, as they suit the "ruby" (gem) idea.

known as "the buggiest kernel ever".
