    It's just so dismissive and heartbreaking to see designers say that we should just wait and remain silent till diversity magically happens.

      Agreed, Mario. It's heartbreaking, but sadly, not surprising.

      I think it's racist to hire someone for their race and not their talent and experience.

        It definitely is, but unfortunately this is already happening. White people are 50% more likely to get called back for an interview—in fact just having a white-sounding name is as valuable as 8 additional years of experience. Given that this isn't going to just go away, the best way anyone's come up with to fight it is making a special effort to hire people of color. Can you think of a better way?
