Its more than just poor  product placement. It reduces the  fellows and
netgen into small uniform animated characters  vs the use of actual
pictures. Tons of  good quality pictures exist demonstrating diversity and
equity across the globe.
It fails also to acknowledge the use of subtitles which all  US 501C are
obligated to use.

> We should have been treated and displayed equally as the other ACs and SOs.
