There was an older man, regular at the store I work at, mentioned Ebola a few times. I always enjoy talking about these things, kinda gauge how locals
might feel about whatever subject. The thing that he mentioned which surprised me was "racism". He actually said there was probably going to be a
huge racist # storm brewing based on the information that Ebola came from Africa and with "the blacks".
I, at the time, thought this was akin to "the great race war" which some have coined as a term, as if it's an inevitability. I personally think a
zombie apocalypse is more likely, it's usually the racists themselves that ever bring up such a silly notion. But this race thing with Ebola keeps
popping up and it's a little freaky to be quite honest.
Will we allow fear to dominate our thinking minds? Is society at the point of playing the blame game with individuals and disease? Who can blame one
for the existence of a microscopic entity? Honestly?
These fear-driven states of paranoia are one among many reasons for those in "control" to tighten the harnesses. "See! They can't control
themselves, they're like animals! They NEED us to govern them". I see the fear on these boards as well.
The absolute most important thing for us, worldwide, is to not panic even in the thick of things. Otherwise we're all likely to lose what little
privileges we have (sadly most our "rights" in the US have already been made privileges).
