Episode Summary

MicrobeTV condemns violence of any kind and will commit resources as an educational platform to support the African American community and people of color worldwide. Black Lives Matter, and our hearts, our support and our solidarity are with everyone who suffers from racial injustice. Human dignity starts with the singular premise that we are all the same, no matter our skin color, religion, sex, gender, or where we live. At all times and in all circumstances, people are entitled to respect, and humane treatment especially by those in position of authority. MicrobeTV says "no more" racism and we will work with educators, scientists and civil society globally to do what is in our power to end social injustice in all its forms.
