Interaction text colour overrides hover text colour

Short version: An interaction changes text colour, and then a hover color change stops working. How to fix?

Longer version: I have a banner on one of my pages. The banner includes a link. The banner starts off white with black text (except for the link, which is blue, as links do). Then after a 2 second delay, the banner background color changes to blue, and the text changes to white (including the link).

So far, so good. The (admittedly not integral) detail that isn’t working, is that I want the link to change colour on hover. This works great UNTIL the text colour changes to white. I suspect the interaction text colour change overrides the hover colour change, but I don’t know how to make it…not do that.

Any ideas?
