From the Artist:
“In the M1 Genetics Module, we discussed race as a social construct that pseudoscience has often exhorted to the great harm of many communities. Misinformation has and continues to marginalize populations based on fake differences between groups of people. However, as our science becomes more trustworthy and begins to champion truth and equity over xenophobia, I am hopeful that we can continue to advance the notion that humans from diverse ancestral backgrounds are more alike than they are different and are each deserving of resources, justice, and respect.”
