My bad, I WAS spacing out…

I was looking at the developer tool, and I saw the Theme rule
.entry-attachment .entry-caption,.wp-caption .wp-caption-text,.gallery-caption{font-size:.9em;margin:-.5em 0 0 0;padding:0 1em 1em 1em;position:relative;text-align:center;font-style:italic}

And below that I saw his rule
figcaption.wp-caption-text {color:white;  font-weight:bold; text-align: left;}

So I thought the theme was being loaded after, when in fact, it is just because his selector was less specific than the theme selector…

@mike01
.wp-caption .wp-caption-text  which is the theme selector that matches your element is more specific than figcaption.wp-caption-text and this is why the them rule takes precedence.

If you had used
.wp-caption  figcaption.wp-caption-text {color:white;  font-weight:bold; text-align: left;}

You rule would have worked
