He's never hidden the fact that he's had various struggles as a black man in a field where there are VERY few minorities of any sort.  That's really not his overall focus though.  He wants to inspire kids to get into the sciences.  He really tries to follow Carl Sagan's footsteps by being approachable to anyone and everyone so that the message doesn't get lost in politics.  I think it's legitimate to be frustrated that he doesn't say much about race, but calling him a coon is just stupid.  He's not by any stretch.  I think because he doesn't talk about race as much as science, people were excited by the video. LOL

I posted his interview with Nichelle because to me they're similar.  Just being black and in a role that is unexpected to...others is still huge.  Now there are lots of little brown children who see a very inspiring man who looks like them saying that they can be anything. Heart  Hush!  I stan for Neil.  I can't help it.  My bias is obvious though.  Cosmos also makes me tingly. LOL

I don't care for white people very much

but I call a coon a coon based on more things than who they marry

I get how much that eats at the soul of some and I even get why it does, but if their works do help the community it's kind of stupid to let who they marry be the main reason why you think they are a coon

and before you talk about black love and making more black babies, many black families and black people don't even like being black

so miss me with the two black parents = black unity and pride.....I don't really see that as the norm

What you're saying is true.  But will we ever get any closer to black pride and unity and loving each other if we keep looking to them for approval or love or support?  Isn't a better first step for us to work on us TOGETHER without them?
 
Ionno.  I wish there was an easy answer.Cry

I agree we need to come together but it is possible for someone to be with someone that is not black and still care for the black community

I know if sounds crazy and maybe only a select few can do this, but it happens

are there no exceptions?

Happy I listened before I commented, because I was in my feelings for a sec that he hijacked a very legitimate question about women in science, but after listening, it was a good comparison.

I wish men like him and henry loius gates were married to black women but I detect no self hatred from them whatsoever so they don't really make me think coon at all.
