Ebola fear is turning into all-out racism

The American public’s reaction to the Ebola virus outbreak that’s killed over 4,000 people has moved from concern to outright xenophobia
Call it “Ebola racism.” With the death of Liberian Thomas E.Duncan at a Dallas hospital last week and news that two nurses who treated him have contracted the deadly illness, increasingly paranoid Americans are treating immigrants and visitors from Ebola-ravaged countries like Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone like lepers. 
"People, once they know you are Liberian — people assume you have the virus in your body." | Follow micdotcom


And I’m not surprised

Leave it to Americans to turn a deadly disease decimating black populations into a fucking laughing matter!

Leave it to white people.

Powerful portraits of the Liberians who beat Ebola 

To help humanize the overwhelming statistics, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer and senior staff photographer at Getty Images, John Moore, visited an Ebola treatment center of the organization, Doctors Without Borders in Paynesville, Liberia. At the treatment center, survivors spoke about the brothers, sisters, husbands and wives they lost due to the disease. They also spoke of recovery, stigmas they continue to face in their villages and renewed hope.

Powerful photos capture the student protests in Mexico barely anyone is talking about 

The unfolding protests gripping Mexico began in the small town of Iguala, in the southwest region of Guerrero state, where the disappearance of 43 student teachers on the night of Sept. 26 has sparked outrage amid allegations of collaboration between local police and organized crime.

I think yesterday was a good outfit day. I realize that this jumper is more of a summer look and even with an extended heatwave out here that this is not the time to wear it. But I looked cute.

I’ve seriously been having the shittiest week, but today things are starting to turn around and I came home with a big goofy grin on my face. I’m feeling super grateful for the positive and supportive lovely people in my life <3

Tiny Winter Soldier reports that she has found her people.

I am really glad that Tiny Winter Soldier is loyal to me. Because she looks pretty fierce here.

Her look says “Who the hell is Bucky?” And she looks absolutely fantastic.

TRUFAX.
