How bad is it? This bad
The so-called March for Science doesn't want Bill Nye to represent them because he's a "white male." https://t.co/9BbsHEON1P

From the Heat Street article
The March for Science is having a tough time deciding whether the march should focus on “diversity and inclusion” or health and climate policy.
Nye, who is not, in fact, a scientist, except on television (he’s an engineer by trade), was slated to be the March’s chair, and an announcement was made last week. But organizers quickly panicked that having Nye at the forefront of the event meant they might be substantiating the idea that scientists are only old white men.
Again, Nye actually isn’t a scientist, but whatever.
“I love Bill Nye,” said Stephani Page, a member of the March’s board, who was critical of what she considered the March’s lack of diversity. “But I do feel comfortable saying to you what I said to the steering committee: He is a white male, and in that way he does represent the status quo of science, of what it is to be a scientist.”
Nye suddenly found out what happens when one is a target of the Social Justice Warrior crowd
For his part, Nye just seemed sort of confused about the whole thing, telling BuzzFeed, “I was born a dorky white guy who became an engineer. I’m playing the hand I was dealt. We can’t—this march can’t solve every problem all at once.”
The march is supposed to be about science, and, specifically, climate science. It was meant to be a protest against Donald Trump’s disbelief in anthropogenic climate change/global warming, and how he has appointed lots of skeptics to positions. Instead, if you cruise their Twitter feed, you’ll see a big focus on
and so much more Social Justice Warrioring, going all the way back to a tweet they deleted
Like most Leftist marches, this one has become muddled with all their Social Warrior beliefs. The signs (so many of which will be astroturfed) at the march on April 22nd are sure to be amusing.
