10 February 2019 | by grace-chang-2013See all my reviews

Missed the mark, trite, ugly animation, and missed opportunity. The moral of the story seemed to show that minorities really have to step it up in order to drive progress. I see this all the time, at major tech company XYZ, to promote diversity, they'll put up pictures of trail mix in bathrooms. Felt like the short was made from a entitled non-racially diverse person's perspective and really dumbing down the topic of diversity and inclusion. Bummed.
