Yes, but they also make more gay, black, lesbian, Asian, Mexican, bisexual, transgender and general minority characters in 2013, because the times have changed and people are more accepting of that and less afraid of that character not being successful simply because of the color of their skin or their sexuality.
That simply wasn't the case in 1961 so the default was white.
The default is still white, but we're more accepting and step away from that WAY more.
He's white literally because it's the default for most characters.
