I don't know, but I picture people as whatever race they are depicted as in the book. If I read a book about Indians called, "Darjeeling," I'm going to picture them as Indians. If I'm reading, "Young Fu of the Upper Yangtze," I picture them as Chinese.
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.
