1. Are there two or more named People of Color? Yes- the control room staff is diverse and a (spoiler) co-conspirator of the 800 million dollar fraud deal ties in a South African subplot connecting the CEO of IBIS to the mine striker’s leader- Mambo
2. Do they talk to each other? No
3. About something other than White people? No
4. Asian Bonus: Is there an Asian character? Yes- the programmer Won Joon responsible for the algorithm is from Seoul in the film.
