Honest Mistake or Subliminal Racism?

I’ve been flicking through a children’s colouring book, which I acquired in Spain. Its your bog standard type – little cartoon boys and girls involved in various activities. A picture is provided next to each colourless drawing, to help little kids. What struck me was that in every single picture, the child is white. Am I stretching the truth or does it seem like subliminal racism turns up in the most quiet of places?
