The COVID-19 pandemic is a challenge that affects us all. We as humanity are in this fight together. Spreading hatred by accusing China to be "making business out of it [the virus]" on Facebook does not help. Calling China "an expert in producing viruses" and Pakistan "an expert in producing terrorists" when the source of virus remains unresolved is even more disturbing and violates the ethics of a research scientist/engineer. These racist comments induce tremendous anxiety among the Chinese and Pakistani students/researchers. We demand an apology from this professor and necessary actions taken by the university to uphold its value of cultural diversity.
