Neil Degrasse Tyson fields an audience question asking if there is a genetic component to why significantly fewer women are in science by bringing his own experience as a black man attempting to succeed in a white male dominated field.
He knocks it out of the park.
EDIT: it won’t let me make it start at 1:01:45, but that’s where the question is!
Normally I’m civilized and whatever but I’m just going to unleash right now, okay? RUDE LANGUAGE AHEAD.
THIS PICTURE PISSES ME RIGHT OFF. This is the stupidest display I have ever seen. When I see this I see an INCREDIBLE creature who is SO intelligent and complex, we still have SO much to learn from them….and yet others see dollar signs, and we are demeaning them by turning them into circus clowns for profit. Years ago, children were the leaders who demanded Keiko be freed from his life in a tank and be reunited with his family - these days, THIS is what happens. Instead of teaching children the value of respecting wild animals and conserving their habitats and culture, we show them that this is how they are treated. This isn’t education, this is a sad fucking joke.
