You will need to create a class that extends RichTextField. In that class, override the paint method like so:

public void paint(Graphics g) {
g.setBackgroundColor(whateverYourBackgroundColorIs );
g.clear();
g.setColor(theColorOfTheTextFont);
}

you can also overwrite the method directly on creation of your class.
new RichTextField(){protected void paintBackground...}
