Question color in emacs

Hi, I'm trying to get color to work for me in emacs, but it just isn't happening. I'm running redhat 7.3 and I am telneting into my box and running emacs that way. If it matters I installed emacs with the up2date command because I didn't want it when I first installed linux. I've recently started using another server (redhat 8.0) and color works just fine in emacs when I telnet into that server. On my 7.3 box color works just fine for ls but for somereason emacs has problems with it. If I do
f10 ==> Exit ==> Text properties ==> Display Colors the bottom half of the split window is just blank. Like maybe there aren't defined or something? I'm lost. Thanks for your help.
