I sure wish I could find out where this is coming from and change it.

Every button, line, rectangle, etc.that I create now in this stack 
appears with its foregroundcolor in white. I've tried resetting the 
defaults in the preferences, but that didn't help.

Oops. I just set the foregroundcolor of the stack to black and all is 
well now. First time I've encountered this.
