I appriciate the branding but is there a way to put the background back to white and the default text color black?
Ha... it's not an attempt at branding honest. It is inheriting the background color from the html tag in the fuel/assets/main.css though. That main.css file is meant to be overwritten with your own.
Add to ./config/editors.php
$config['ckeditor']['default'] = array(
'contentsCss' => WEB_PATH.'assets/css/ckeditor.css'
And add whatever CSS you want for your editor
