Wow, that's a rather smug sentiment (both yours and Scalzi's). I know people who have hand up professionally specifically because of the "gay mafia" or being an alum of a black fraternity. There are privileged non-whites, and unprivileged whites, so basically Scalzi's house is built on sand. But ah, he has a trump card for that, doesn't he? In his own words, he's established (through the magic of glittering generalizations) that anyone who disagrees with him is in denial.
Coming back to Jogobox: I'm not missing the point. I"m not in the blissful throes of white-male denial. I'm being level-headed. You and others have jumped to a conclusion, and skipped the burden of proof part, which I guess is because inferring the worst intentions is just the way occam's razor slices in this corrupt white-male world.
I posted recently about how tasteless and off-putting the recent Hitman: Absolution trailer is. Refer to that for a much more cut-and-dried case of exploitation.
