I find myself thinking bullshit on the earlier point where Didio challenged questioners as to which black or female writers/artists/creative types they'd like to have working for them.

I mean, in the first place, in order to get the kind of name recognition that would require means having worked for one of the larger companies in the first place. It seems like a self-defeating principle - if you want non-white male creatives, you need to be able to say who you want; in order to say who you want, you have to be aware of their work.

If media-wide the comics industry has a very low ratio of non-white male creatives, which they do, then logically there's not going to be many someone could name off the top of their heads, because there aren't many people in those positions. It's a vicious cycle, and either a poor or a disingenuous question to pose (i'd probably just guess poor).
