    ​​​​That's the pinnacle of being socially nearsighted.

    It's like "Hey, we noticed we're all white boys, how about we do one event to target minorities, since 99.999999% of the time we don't we end up hiring white males?", and going "Boooo!!!! That's so unfair!!! You should be hired because you're capable, not that shit!! Yeah, let's pretend recruiters have no bias at all and that everyone could afford computers all their lives like I did! Of course they can, they're just lazy! I can, how come they can't?" while he doesn't realize he still has the other 99.999999% of job interviews open for him anyway.

    No, you *ONLY* want to pick the best person for the job, arbitrary attributes DOES NOT MATTER.

        A developer named Manveer Heir that worked for Bioware in Canada he went around giving speeches about diversity. One day he went on a racist rant about white people on social mediia. People stopped buying Bioware. Bioware got bought out by Ea after that...

          I can't stand Manveer Heir myself, but EA bought Bioware waaaaay before that. Looks to be about 2007, which lines up with my memory:
          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BioWar...and_Dragon_Age

          I believe Manveer Heir's shenanigans occurred in 2017.

          Did Andromeda lose significant sales due to this? Hard to say. The game is definitely trash though.

            My mistake thanks for the correction. I have no idea about Bioware or Ea I have it bought there stuff since the Baldur's gate day's or battlefield 1944. Anyway it's cool Gnome is hiring.
