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.
