I tried the simplest thing:  select by color, clicking on the text, and
it selected the text and only the text.  Then I copied the selection and
pasted it back on a white background in a new layer. 
Image/Colors/Desaturate makes it black on white; or you could change the
image mode to grayscale.  Or you could paste the original selection on a
transparent background ... (or even into a new image).

Is this what you were looking for?
