I think the problem stems in the fact that acquired traits are not always easily identified.

One of the points I wanted to make in the article is that poor communication is one of the major reasons that fostering inclusivity is hard. It takes time to sit down and communicate empathetically with those who are different from us. It even takes time for two parties to agree on the same vocabulary. In an age of cable television and social media silos, it is increasingly difficult to tap into the diverse narratives of people from unconventional backgrounds. The paradox of our modern times is that we can be more global than we’ve ever been, and at the same time more isolated as well.
