If you would like dark bars and white labels within the bars, you 
could use the -blabel- option with the -color- suboption.  You will 
also want to put the labels within the bars (instead of on top) 
because a white label would "disappear" on a white background- so
you could use the -position- suboption for that purpose.  For
example, your command might look like the following:

. graph bar x, over(y) blabel(bar, color(white) position(inside))
