When social networking company Snap went public recently, legendary angel investor Chris Sacca tweeted an email from Snap’s founder Brian Murphy asking to meet with him when the company was first getting started.  Sacca pointed out that he never responded to the message. Similarly, Brian Chesky, founder of Airbnb, wrote in a blog post recently that he was turned down by seven venture capitalists when the company tried to raise $150,000 at a $1.5 million valuation back in 2008.

Studios and networks may be making tentative steps towards inclusivity and diversity, but superhero franchises are still slow on the uptake when it comes to adapting comic book characters who aren't straight, white, cisgender males. Viewers are voicing their displeasure more loudly than ever about the dearth of representation on our screens — and how long it's taking to fix the situation.  Wonder Woman first swung her lasso of truth on TV back in 1975, but it wasn't until 2015 that DC and Marvel let Supergirl and Jessica Jones lead the next wave of female superhero shows.

Remember #LexingtonPoliceScanner?) Thus, fans of the Kentucky Wildcats were not happy when their team lost to North Carolina just short of the Final Four last weekend. They directed much of their ire toward referee John Higgins.  Now, Higgins did make some very debatable calls in [...]
