My original question on Stack Overflow can be found here. Basically, I ssh into my linux work station from my Mac and I would like to test my program (that runs on the linux machine) if color output is not supported on my terminal emulator. Currently I am using Terminal.app and I've tried setting Preferences > Settings > Advanced > Declare terminal as different terminal types but all of them still seem to print colors.

Does anyone know a black/white only terminal emulator for Mac? Is there a way to completely turn off colors on a terminal?

I use iTerm, which allows you to set styles, including black and white.

Here's a black and white terminal for Terminal.app (download linked file and remove txt).
This maps all the colours in Terminal to be black and white, therefore disabling colour.
