somethreshold = 11; %found by examining the image RGB values
mask = YourImage(:,:,3) > somethreshold;
NewImage = YourImage .* cast(mask(:,:,[1 1 1]), class(YourImage));
%And to view it,
image(NewImage, 'AlphaData', double(mask))
Only the darkest text is removed.

There is no white colored text.
Notice the "And to view it" portion. The image is being displayed with transparency for the pixels that are not selected. You are seeing the white of the background showing through. The image itself has been set to black at all other locations. The locations that are selected (the ROI, region of interest) are the ones where mask is true.

Try imtophat() or imbothat() to do a morphological filter.
