It's turning into a mythological creature. As an progressive tea-party atheist I cannot comprehend such ill logic. The fantasy that it will magically grow wings and become airborne, since it can only become airborne if it's mixed with wet gas. The fantasy that the population got it from their fruit-bats and bushmeat. It's the Zaire-ebolavirus version, which is from Congo and not indigenous, like Taï-Forest-ebolavirus which is native to this area. Somehow it got out of the Congo for the first time, where it historically always has been contained. The focus is entirely on west Africa(Particularly French and the African-American colonies); instead of other areas like the Congo/Uganda/Gabon(where people are still getting this kind of virus...). The fantasy that this Ebola recognizes white privilege, that white people can get magically cured or magically immune. That Zaire-Ebola spread out at the same time in multiple foreign countries with 10x more dead than any know Zaire-Ebola epidemic before. Where are the pics? There are hardly any pics or videos circulating; just words. With 4,000 dead the media should be grasping for any pic they can find. Texas, a boarder state, got Ebola first. Coincidence? I am not so sure. Where are the pics? There should be tons of them right?

I'm a little confused OP. What do you think is being hidden?

I would guess that the OP thinks that the Ebola virus spread is part of a larger global conspiracy to push an aggressive form of "multiculturalism," which he seems to allude to when he says that the virus has spread in the former colonies as opposed to the Congo et al and that white privilege has been invoked in relation to the discussion.

I have no doubt that there could be some out there with nefarious intentions in the world, and the news does effect things like multiculturalism.

But, it's the tabloidization of the news and general gossip. Not to say that news hasn't generally been mostly sensationalist, but, there is a difference when it's sensationalism with assorted facts and truth, and sensationalism without any... When it's getting to the point of out right lies and zero sense, I think anyone should be worried.

What kind of news organizations calls something a special magic serum? or a white privilege virus. It's absurdity, this whole thing, absurd. It isn't the native ebola virus.
