Answer for How do I change the main Text colours?

and also under the skills section, the boarder of each column is black, which is great. Can the background of the remaining capacity of the column bar be changed from white to black? I.e. The original template has a yellow column bar, with a white boarder, and a white background for the remaining of the bar thats not yellow.
Mine is currently: Blue bar, black boarder, white remaining. 
So if that can be changed to: Blue bar, black boarder, black remaining.
 
Thanks!!
