I'm a minority and to be completely honest, yeah, I was a little disappointed a minority or woman didn't get one of the gigs with GB. Just because it would have mixed things up a bit and provided a much needed different perspective. Especially given how much that lack of diversity in the gaming/games journalism world comes up around here. It just kind of feels like a bit of a missed opportunity and a case of "actions > words" to my more cynical side.
All that said, my cynical side is a dick...the more rational side of me knows it is certainly not GiantBomb's fault. Because I'm never...ever going to demand or try to force a company to hire someone of a specific gender or race. That is not giving everyone a fair shot. That's almost a different style of discrimination done under the guise of 'ensuring diversity.'
Instead, I simply trust GiantBomb to hire the most qualified individuals possible, regardless of race or gender. And I feel that's exactly what they did here. If it happens to be two more white dudes, so be it.
