    Your form background-color is shown as black because it is originally set as transparent and it automatically adopts the dark color of your website background. So, to fix it simply add this CSS code to your form: 



    background-color:#FFFFFF !important;


    That will set your form background to white, you can pick more colors from this tool: http://www.colorpicker.com/

    And here is how to inject CSS code to forms: How to inject custom CSS codes

    Once you inject the CSS code you need to update the form code you embedded so that it can reflect the changes.
