Unfortunately true for me, but of definitely gotten better at making diverse characters and imagining them as different races than white :)
Actually I've been yellow-washed but sure, I can be whitewashed.
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
I am black and I am here advice for writing Native Americans.
Sad, but true😞
                              Even when I was little in the 90s that was all I saw to read. Sighs. Except for one or two books that had some color. Phew.
                              But still, those diverse books are out there😀
