It's not a chimera. Transnational corporations hire transnational professionals for transnational markets. Case in point: Sony's Santa Monica studio, currently producing the blockbuster "God of War" videogame franchise. A multicultural, multinational, sexually diverse, gender-balanced crew wrote a storyline reworking Greek mythology into a stunning tale celebrating slave insurrections and anti-colonial rebellions.

This doesn't mean race and gender don't matter. It's just that they matter differently from the days of overt colonialism and Empire.
