It's great that you're working with the Muslim Public Affairs Council on Halo, but in the future would you consider hiring more writers of color when creating these types of characters? I think a lot of the issues with Halo could've been avoided if there was an Arab/Muslim woman in the room. Increasing diversity in entertainment needs to extend to all areas.
The short answer is yes, but I do want to clarify a trio of points, just for the sake of accuracy.
1. We didn't create Halo.
2. We did consult with a Muslim woman when developing the character for our series. But she wasn't a writer on the series.
3. In season four, we did have a Muslim woman writer in the room. And more writers of color in general in both Seasons Three and Four.
Those efforts aren't enough, of course, but they're a start.
