Can't change the text color with Android Action Bar drop-down navigation

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I'm using Drop-down Navigation with my Action bar, and I can't get a sensible color for the corresponding text when using a dark action bar. The action bar itself is a dark grey, and the text color is black, so it's very hard to read. I followed the basic instructions on the Action Bar developer's guide so my code is simply SpinnerAdapter mSpinnerAdapter = ArrayAdapter.createFromResource(this, R.array.action_list, android.R.layout.simple_spinner_dropdown_item); ActionBar.OnNavigationListener navigationListener = new OnNavigationListener() { @Override public boolean onNavigationItem (HowTos)
