  10. Isi Medina

    Can somebody explain to me how this white man can shame an entire culture for standing up for racism? I do get some of the comments went too far (r*pe), and in other cases, death threats. But how can you stand there and defend her, and saying "poor her" when she made a racist comment? This man does not understand what its like to hop on twitter and feel discriminated. People spilling hate speech disguised as jokes or stereotypes. And this happens with racism. With misogyny. With the LGBTQ+ community. With people with disabilities. With immigrants. He doesn't understand what its like to read a comment like that and feel your heart fall to the floor. I don't care that it was a joke, it was hurtful, hateful, and racist. It's not his job to publicly forgive her and shame us for what happened. It's not his place to speak on behalf of the community she hurt. Cancel culture creates accountability.

    So tell me the world is a kingdom of species dominating each other in the food chain if apes could talk you would file another 1000 cases if it was relavent to human evolution.

  23. J E

    Hahaha... I can't believe this scammer has the audacity to still talk climate. How's that 2014 ice-free Arctic Ocean prediction coming along. GTFO.

  24. Mirza Hodzic

    Great message. Thank you.

  25. Abbas Ahmed

    I belive in the creator who paired every thing but I don't understand why you had public schools torturing us untill we dehydrate, its not true that their wasnt enough water because we have so much rain in the UK or is this just a punishment of someone's lousy thought of word play on one's race to signify an unexplained point?

  26. Shenxy Loong

    hello :)

    I got hyped when you said that procrastinating can make someone more creative, but then I realized that I am not procrastinating if I don't intend on doing something either.

  31. Dux Wontobey

    On a somewhat related note, I know of at least 2 cases where people have been proven innocent after being executed. I personally think that's enough to oppose the death penalty, as no justice system is perfect.

  32. César Boria

    I could detect the lie if I could've talked a bit longer to the kid. By having them dessapearing 1 second after my question's been asked, I can't really tell...

    Hey Dr Death, go apply for the position at Unit 731. You’d be perfect for the job!

  35. Dr. Julie Connor

    As a youth mental health and peer leadership consultant, I agree mental health skills begin with open, honest conversations. It is unrealistic to assume just because we "talk" about mental health and promote help-seeking behaviors that students and adults feel comfortable using the words to ask for help. We must practice mental health conversations with youth with specific words and skills to guide a friend we care about to a trusted adult who can offer mental health support. It takes a village. This will not be accomplished with a worksheet, video, or book - it requires a commitment to normalize conversations about mental health. When we talk about tough topics like mental illness, we strip the stigma that shames children and teens into silence.

  36. Kimberly Stead

    Anyone know how to get ahold of the speaker Heather Barnett? I may have a very interesting study for her. I have a body mold/fungus yet no doctor's can figure out what strand. I believe it is related to slime mold.

  37. Nova Vanguard

    Wish I had teachers like this

  38. Kyle Akyol

    Great TED Talk. I think this is very much in line with Herzberg's Theory. Carrots and sticks lead to manipulation, not motivation. There is only one way to increase motivation, by using internal motivators.

  39. User 39

    Imagine a man saying: "Gents, I'm Superman-strong now". While ignoring the women, lol. He'd have been a misogynist.

  40. Cza Beats

    the saddest thing about Dawkins is his fan boys are more ignorant than he is on Christianity. a 1st semester comparative religion student can see Dawkins knows nothing about Christianity and/or Jesus. You fan boys crack me up how you swallow every word this idiot says.

    This is phenomonology. Husserl, Merleau-Ponty and others. Funny neither the speaker nor the comments show any awareness of the intellectual history which informs this discourse.

  66. Big Dee

    Children need fathers .... black fathers do no raise their children... period

    1. Michael Parris

      Some do. You're not helping with statements that insult them.

  67. AtoZbodyfitness

    it's so important never to compare yourself to anyone else. you can use them idolize them in a way to help further push you to become better yourself but we are all individually different. you also never know what the person you are comparing yourself to is going through. They might seem like they have the life you want but in reality, they can be miserable or not as happy. Furthermore, you haven't experienced the life they currently live, you only see a photo or few second videos that are generally marketed that way to make it look great. But it could also be that maybe they are enjoying their life and they are happy. And if that's the case you still don't know if what they do for a living is for you and the amount of work they did to get to that point. Everyone always wants the bright light and stars but nobody wants to sacrifice their eyes to get there. You would be very surprised to know another person's situation is extremely different than how you play it out in your mind of how they are actually living. Just focus on yourself, find a passion or that gift that you enjoy, and when you do just keep working at it. if it makes you happy that's all that matters. Keep working at it over the years and eventually, you can cultivate it in all areas of your life such as health, money, relationships, and happiness will follow.

    I love the message he brings to the surface. Those "trade" skills he talks about are being forgotten and it a shame. Cant think of a better person to be the advocate for the folks behind the scenes. I'm sharing this with everyone I can, I'd suggest y'all do the same.

  76. A Walker



    Looks and money shouldn't be everything, yet they are. Because no matter how much money you have, or how many people stop you on the street to talk or look at you. None of it will bring you true happiness.

  78. nancy arnold

    I once bought a very thin book titled "Procrastination" - wouldn't take much time to read, right? About 9 years later while I was packing to move I ran across it. Unread. Gave it to Salvation Army. Gotta love irony.

  79. Brent Hansen

    Good talk. Should have ended around the 5 minute mark.
