So I was talking with my brother, who used to run a larp, and he talked to me about how difficult it was to be a person of color in the gaming industry.
Background Preface (can skip)
the family business has more female managers than male managers, we are a matriarchial company in Construction and Manufacturing which was shocking to people who know engineering is typically a Boy's Club.
We used to move back and forth between the USA and Philippines, until we decided on our permanent residential status. Then of course my work makes me encounter our unskilled helpers who earn 200usd/mo and very much aware of the economic costs and status of people in the company - from unskilled clerks and laborers to college grads and most working-class Filipinos. I learned to check my privilege as Filipino upper management.
I don't know if you notice I write about my work and how It relates to gaming and gaming and how it relates to work.
Diversity and Different Points of Views
How this relates to gaming?
Of course, I'm speaking of TRPGamers who kinda find the humanistic philosophy and science part of their identity. Those who have a concept and word association of being a TRPGamer - game theory, psychology, systems thinking, world-building, economics, demographics, simulations etc... concepts unified by being a TRPGer.
