Because it's not like every other window ?

AltConsole is a (small) separate application; it's supposed to provide
a primitive terminal-like interface to GUI applications that don't
ordinarily have such an interface.  If its window appears, there's
a good chance that that's because of something anomalous and that
something probably requires user or developer attention.

There might be better ways of attracting that attention than to
use red text on a white background, but trying to "blend in" isn't
really the point here ...
