tikz has its own color mechanisms and they don't mix well with context 
color support so context probbably thinks it's still in red (so you need 
to force something non red in front)

\starttikzpicture
     \node {\color[red]{red}};
     \node[xshift=30] {\zwnj\color[red]{not red}};
\stoptikzpicture
