If the book's been made into a movie and i'm going back or just rereading the book in general, the character in the movie is what my mental image is of characters in the book.
Books in general though, I kinda just imagine them without a race. Like, big colorless blobs speaking or acting in the way of the character.

You do read don't you? When you finish a chapter of a good book and take a break from it, don't you sometimes wonder what the characters are going to do next, or replay a great scene in your mind? You can't possibly read a book and not assign a race to the characters. Unless you just picture little gray men, which I find really hard to believe.
I wonder if I ask a black person for a skin-colored pencil (I don't know if anyone but me says that.)
Do I get a beigelike pencil or a brown pencil?
god i love you, madcow.

The first person that comes to my mind with the name Damien is Bob Marley's son.
followed by the antichrist.

I physically cannot envision things in my mind from reading text or listening to music, so no. :(

Or mentally. Or morally. Or whatever the hell you were trying to indicate there. :33

But assuming your reading something where it's unclear. Like a sci-fi book. You can't possibly know what race is dominant in this futuristic world, yet I always picture them as white (unless stated otherwise)
Also, are there no black people on Newgrounds or something? That could end this conversation quickly. Also I can't tell whether someone is black or white just by the text they write.
God, I hope so.
Timmy the White reads: "And then the respectable boy walked rather proudly to the shops to get some milk"
Tyron the Black reads: "OOOH SHIT, N!GG*R. THAT HOMEBOY WALKED ALL FUCKING TIGHT, SWAGGING THAT SHIT AND ALL AND PICKED UP SOME OF TEH WHITE STUFF"
not racist :)

You should know that black folks don't call their own n!gge!r.
