Firebrand Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s latest racially-charged claim is that Ebola – the deadly disease ravaging parts of Africa and now diagnosed on American soil – was designed by white scientists specifically to kill off blacks.

I think it is not race related. You can die from Ebola no matter the race. It is only that it is more prevalent in Africa at the moment.

its not a race or genetic thing...
there have not been enough cases in the states to show it kills everyone the same..
it has killed more black people in africa because that is the demographic there...
the major factor in survival is solid treatment as early as possible

Well time will tell. I cannot find any statistics on it from overseas. The first two patients where very ill though. The two that went to Atlanta initially. I think at this point it is a subject worth watching, though without more statistics on who does and does not survive it may be a bit early to say there is something different but worth watching!

Are Africans more susceptible to die from Ebola? This is not meant to be a racial thread more one of genetics. S far at least in the USA it seems like people from or descendent of Africans die more often than those who are from elsewhere.
