BULLSHIT!!! 😡😡. #cnn #america #ebola #racism
This isn’t news. Ebola wasn’t even on the CDC’s radar to cure until white Americans caught it. Africans have been dying from ebola for DECADES.
And it isn’t as if the strain of ebola is NEW or anything. This is the same strain that was discovered in 1976, and so far no further studies have been undertaken to find a cure or even a vaccine for the virus.
But two old crotchety white people catch it and suddenly it’s a goddamn race against time to find a cure.
But when Africans with no proper access to clean healthcare were dying by the hundreds, the CDC AND WHO were content to let that shit rock. This is not fucking news.
I love how the news isn’t even making a big deal out of it. Like yes, two whit american’s are being cured. Then they will talk about the hundreds dying and thosand’s sickened in Africa.
Today on NPR a correspontant there was reporting that people in Liberia are afraid of the medical workers because of their gear and believe there is no cure.
Well no shit. Up until now we haven’t heard of one.
