For most people, colour is helpful, but for some it can be distracting, or
useless. So it is important to make sure that you don't rely just on colour.
There are two checkpoints to cover this in WCAG - 2.1 and 2.2.

  I guess you find grayscale (8-bit gray) display also annoying?..
   As about me: I use anti-aliasing to make characters looking better.
  FreeType (www.freetype.org) project does wonderful things, 255 shades of gray
  for every renderred glyph...
  And, adding subpixel decimation (which required digital LCD screen and RGB
  color) can imprrove it even further!
  So I can't agree that color is confusing - color makes life better!
