    Default Need help with Java.awt.Color

    I am having problem with the JRadio Buttons to change the font color in my code. What needs to be done? Also if I were to connect this GUI to another GUI and save font colors, how would I go about that?

    package SystemandDesign.RISK;
     
    import java.awt.FlowLayout;
    import java.awt.Font;
    import java.awt.Color;
    import java.awt.event.ItemListener;
    import java.awt.event.ItemEvent;
    import javax.swing.JTextField;
    import javax.swing.JRadioButton;
    import javax.swing.JFrame;
    import javax.swing.ButtonGroup;
     
    public class CharacterCreation extends JFrame{
     
      private Font redFont;
      private Font blueFont;
      private Font greenFont;
      private Font yellowFont;
      private Font grayFont;
      private Font blackFont;
      private JRadioButton three;
      private JRadioButton four;
      private JRadioButton five;
      private JRadioButton six;
      private JRadioButton red;
      private JRadioButton blue;
      private JRadioButton green;
      private JRadioButton yellow;
      private JRadioButton gray;
      private JRadioButton black;
      private JTextField textField;
      private ButtonGroup army;
      private ButtonGroup numPlayers;
     
      public CharacterCreation(){
     
        super("Character Creation");
        setLayout(new FlowLayout());
     
        textField = new JTextField("Your Army Color", 25);
        add(textField);
     
        //To remain true to the Game of Risk, instead of having individual name input for the game. 
        //I am allowing which army color the player wants to be.
        //When the game is done being written out, I hope to have the font of individual player text, to be the color
        //of their army.
     
        //In the future when the model is done, the character screen will prevent players from having the same color army.
        redFont = new Font("Serif", Font.PLAIN, 14);
        blueFont = new Font("Serif", Font.PLAIN,14);
        greenFont = new Font("Serif", Font.PLAIN,14);

        textField.setFont(redFont);

        yellow = new JRadioButton("Yellow Army", false);
        gray = new JRadioButton("Gray Army", false);
        black = new JRadioButton("Black Army", false);
        add(red);
        add(blue);

          }
