Because in the retina of human eyes there are light detector cells of two kinds: rods and cones. Cones "see" colors but are not very good with low brightness. Rods don't detect colors but are better than rods in low brightness situations. Thus at night cones don't function (they are for bright light) and we see only with rods which don't differentiate ...
With my understanding, any color except black will reflect light, and a black color will absorb light without reflecting back out. So, at night, there won't be enough light to shine on anything to have a reflection. Then, your eyes won't see anything
