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.
“We talk about social service, service to the people, service to humanity, service to others who are far away, helping to bring peace to the world - but often we forget that it is the very people around us that we must live for first of all. If you cannot serve your wife or husband or child or parent - how are you going to serve society? If you cannot make your own child happy, how do you expect to be able to make anyone else happy? If all our friends in the peace movement or of service communities of any kind do not love and help each other, whom can we love and help?”
