pip3 (3.5 on Mac OS X) is outputting a message in yellow that I can barely see on a white background terminal.

"You are using pip version 7.1.2, however version 8.0.2 is available.
You should consider upgrading via the 'pip install --upgrade pip' command."

I suggest that pip only uses text output. But if the pip developers insist on using colour then set both foreground and background colours.

Thanks for the report, but this needs to be reported to the pip issue tracker:
