His wife is to the left of him.
 
By BHM's standards being in an IR marriage equates being a coon. I think that is over-simplistic and asinine.

Got into a fight with my brother about not being impressed by this video clip.

I expected something new and insightful and got "women are discouraged from entering the sciences". That's the same thing women scientist have been saying forever.

Just rubs me the wrong way that this video clip is all over my social media but he isn't actually saying anything new.

I liken it to when a white person says something seemingly insightful about race and everyone goes crazy for them. But black folks been saying that same exact thing since the beginning of time and no one was tryna hear it.

You kidding?

They STILL don't hear him. The audience was clapping at his words after listening.. but did they HEAR him? I don't think so, honestly.

This clip wasn't even big and popular and was obscure for awhile. We praise Neil for his knowledge but for sure, his quotes on race are highly ignored because that's the general reaction to societal inequalities based on involuntary attributes for the sake of maintaining comfort.

Does he have other quotes about inequalities that aren't so cliche?

I don't follow him, so I honestly don't know. I was just commenting on the clip in the OP that is literally everywhere now and receiving all the praise. Which is weird to me considering how basic it is.

ETA:

Although, I do understand people being excited about finding out that he actually has made statements about race/gender and isn't some watered down "I don't go there" black celebrity. 

I keep getting this "don't ever question him" vibe from his black fans. Like because he is a *black* astrophysicist that excuses him from any thing that might even resemble criticism.

(Not that I am criticizing him for anything really. Just disappoint by this clip)
