No, mouse color is usually determined by the operating system. This is
a good thing, it provides interface continuity across the environment,
but it sounds like you may be using some kind of non-standard
arrangement. On Windows, the default cursors have both black and
white, so that there is always contrast no matter the background
color. I usually spend half my day in CAD software with a black
background, but can always see the white outline of the mouse.

We can't control this, Vim and Cream use whatever is specified by the
environment. Do you use any other applications with a black
background, and if so, how do they handle this better?
