Unfortunately true for me, but of definitely gotten better at making diverse characters and imagining them as different races than white :)

I’m not guilty... Most of my characters are different races, black, white, Asian, etc. And whenever I read a story, I only think they are white when it says: Blue/green eyes, straight blonde hair.

Y'all stop playing. You know you have done it before. I hate it, it's just seems so natural to assume the main character is white. It's been planted in my brain and many others
this is *perfect*. i've been planning a story with two poc main characters and i've been so afraid of getting them wrong i never started writing. this is giving me all the information i needed and more to write my story. thank you!
