Sure you can, when you open xterm, or your script does, make sure it has the -foreground switch....ie xterm -foreground black (or red, green, etc)
-fg is simpler I guess
If I want to change the colors, I make an alias in my bash profile.
alias xterm='xterm -fg black'
or any other switched you want, the file to do it is ~/.bashrc
*oops edit* you wanted black only, my mistake
