I certainly hope these idiots cannot find a way to cool the planet. I would love to see the earth quite a bit warmer. I hate the cold. But none of this really worries me. We are not causing "global warming" and we will never be able to impact earth's climate in any meaningful way.

Having men work with women is like a grizzly bear working with salmon dipped in honey. Evolution made us sexual. Flirting is not harassment. Neither is complimenting. This is what you will sometimes get when men and women work together.

I find her grievance accounts of having to respond to an e-mail, not being acknowledged in a meeting, and spending time responding to criticism in an e-mail to be shallow and unsupported by any evidence besides her mere assertions and all wholly without any context to connect them with her identity as she claims. Besides there are human rights laws that prohibit discrimination perhaps she should take these allegations to an institution that requires evidence and facts. It must be an extremely tense and toxic working with someone like this who is clearly ideologically posessed operating in a pseudo reality attributing without evidence all outcomes and negative feelings to her identity thereby implying that the people around her and the university is morally reprehensible when the vast majority of people, especially educated people in a university context, judge people by character content not skin color. Its time for people and our institutions to stand up against this divisive post modern neo marxist neo racist collectivist critical race theory ideology that has posessed so many people including Burks. Lets start by asking PBS to stop presenting this toxic narrative and have this video removed.

@NOVA PBS Official people aren't robots and to assume that they can be placed in a segregation based on race isn't apart of the scientific method but more so physiological aspects to an objective reality, not the other way around. Saying that one "research" study ends the discussion is ultimately going further away from the facts and truth. This is creation of division and nothing more, this subject has much more to do with culture then discrimination. And with kids in western nations would rather be "influencers" then doctors, scientists or the like. There is only nails if you believe that you are a hammer.....

Having a certain demographic better represented than another could hint that perhaps the field is less popular to the less-represented demographic. But this is why we have scientific research: We can point to studies that have explicitly shown that 50% of women in science have dealt with harassment; We can look at another study focused on in "Picture a Scientist" that illustrated that when science employers were given the same exact entry-level resume, one with a male name and one with a female name, that the male is considered more qualified on all fronts and offered more money. It's best to listen to the people, in this case, women, who have experienced discrimination and/or harassment, and, as every great scientist does, also look at the numbers, reports made by affected universities, etc.

Thanks for sharing this, Dr. Burks. The critics here seem to be reading an awful lot into a very short clip that's about a specific kind of experience, one not shared equally by people in STEM. Nowhere did Dr. Burks say this is what "everything" is about. You know what's really whining? Not being about to take a moment to listen to someone else's perspective without getting defensive.

Brilliant articulated by Dr Burks, as she says there's a lot to love about science and research but it is a part of society and it has problems just like the rest of society, and some problems uniquely of its own. It's important to hear these incidents and how it impacts members of our community. And speaking up will inevitably trigger more. So thank you Raychelle, I'm so sorry you keep having to do this, we have to keep working to make it better. Also, I agree with the comments below that recommend the full film, take the time.

It's funny to see people complain about this one case saying "stop blaming colour/gender for X" but on the fundamental assumption that we are all equal w.r.t race and gender than why is there an achievement gap and lack of representation in academia? If you're going to allow your feelings about "wokeness" and "PC gone mad" cloud your critical analysis maybe don't comment on academia
@Chris VanSlyke Honestly, I like your first question, Chris, but you're way out of the left-field with the rest of your comment. LOL :)
Chris VanSlyke
Chris VanSlyke Пре дан
How can you assert that an achievement gap is prima facia evidence of discrimination or mistreatment? Even with the examples given in this video there is zero reason to conclude that 1) She has been treated any different then anybody else. The subjective feeling of being unheard in a meeting and having to write an e-mail in response to criticism is not objective evidence of a unjustified negative experience 2) That her alleged differential treatment is because of her identity. The fact that there is disproportionate outcomes in a system is not an exception is a natural law. The demographics of blacks are vastly different than whites that alone will result in justifiable reasonable disparate outcomes. For example the median age between blacks and whites is almost 20 years apart in the US which will account for a huge portion of the disproportate outcomes in things like average income, wealth inequality, incarceration rates, number of blacks in chemistry. Identity is one factor that impacts outcomes and unless or until there is a proper multivariable analysis that considers all outcome dependent factors and their proportionate contribution its reprehensible and a misrepresentation to blame those outcomes on a single identity marker or slander an institution or discipline like chemistry with a systemic racism label.

I mean text book definition, pretty close? "Typically of a marginalise group or minority" doesn't apply to white people but sports can be a weird reverse bias especially in America where sport scholarships are a viable way for poorer people to get to college. Maybe look at historical fencing/HEMA which has the reverse affect of having a large buy-in cost (protection, proper steel, etc) Also who owns NBA teams and what's the achievement/employment behind the scenes like? theundefeated.com/features/the-distressing-lack-of-black-leadership-in-the-nba/
yeah, I'm sure you also think the NBA is racist because white people are under-represented too, right? LOL :)
