Neil deGrasse Tyson Compares White People to Monkeys

I’m confusion.  So is it ok or not ok to compare human races to animals?  I’m thinking it’s NOT ok at all!  But one says otherwise.

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson says white people look more like monkeys than black people.  [This is a real thing, not an article from The Babylon Bee]

“White people are the hairiest people… [and] take a look at a chimpanzee’s lips. They’re razor thin”, posits Tyson.
