OBAMACON 2014

The world’s first comic book convention for fans of that one issue of Spiderman that featured Barack Obama.

On writing and writing for school

If I put an apple on the table in front of you and say, “write your thoughts about this apple,” I’m asking you to write something about the way you perceive the essence of the apple.

What I’m not asking for is, “That is an apple. It is red and on a desk. You put it there.” When you write about the most basic surface facts about a situation that is obvious to both of us you are wasting OUR time.

This is essentially what I want to say to the majority of students whose work I must grade.

So when a reporter in the video asks Basquiat about the sources of the text in his paintings, tell me about that source and Basquiat’s method. Don’t tell me that a reporter asked Basquiat about his sources because we all saw that and no level of detail will make it interesting.

I definitely don’t care about Cindy Sherman

I’m so glad I didn’t buy her book in undergrad.

"

I’ve never been female. But I have been black my whole life. I can perhaps offer some insight from that perspective. There are many similar social issues related to access to equal opportunity that we find in the black community, as well as the community of women in a white male dominate society…

When I look at — throughout my life — I’ve known that I wanted to do astrophysics since I was 9 years old…I got to see how the world around me reacted to my expressions of these ambitions. All I can say is, the fact that I wanted to be a scientist, an astrophysicist was hands down the path of most resistance through the forces of society.

Anytime I expressed this interest, teachers would say, ‘Oh, don’t you wanna be an athlete?’ I want to become someone that was outside of the paradigm of expectations of the people in power. Fortunately, my depth of interest of the universe was so deep and so fuel enriched that everyone of these curve balls that I was thrown, and fences built in front of me, and hills that I had to climb, I just reach for more fuel, and I just kept going.

Now, here I am, one of the most visible scientists in the land, and I wanna look behind me and say, ‘Where are the others who might have been this,’ and they’re not there! …I happened to survive and others did not simply because of forces of society that prevented it at every turn. At every turn.

…My life experience tells me that when you don’t find blacks, when you don’t find women in the sciences, I know that these forces are real, and I had to survive them in order to get where I am today.

So before we start talking about genetic differences, you gotta come up with a system where there’s equal opportunity, then we can have that conversation.

"

Neil DeGrasse Tyson in response to a question posed by Lawrence Summers, former Treasury Security and Harvard University President

"What’s up with chicks and science?"

Are there genetic differences between men and women, explain why more men are in science.

I hate Larry Summers sooo much. He has learned nothing.

This video brought a tear to my eye. Neil is a perfect human being.

I’ve worn it a million times, but today people were calling it out by name. I don’t even know.

What the hell was my grandma doing?
