This is needing to be 200% better. It’s okay for Carl Sagan to have a scripted series. It’s okay for Stephen Hawking to plan out his speeches. It’s okay that the LIGO team carefully scripted their remarks the day of the gravitational wave announcement. But it’s not okay for Neil Tyson to use a script for a multimillion dollar television production that will possibly be the most widely watched scientific documentary on the planet for the next several years. Yeah, that’s needing to be 200% better. That’s a double standard for a Black man. That’s white supremacy. That’s why Black people often experience severe doubt that they can achieve the success they want: we know the game is rigged. We have to be 200% better.
