GNOME Terminal colors

When using gnome-terminal, I kept running into the issue of having an obnoxious gray background when using vim in the terminal. After doing some digging, it seems I need to set my gnome-terminal palette.

This is accomplished by:
  1. Edit ⇒ Current Profile...
  2. Choose the Colors tab
  3. Under the Palette section, change Built in schemes to XTerm.
  4. Stop crying.
