I just scanned the malaria list and quite a few countries with the highest rates were not what I would consider 3rd world..
Like basiclly every tropical region on the planet had thousands of diagnosed cases every year.
Seems to me it is more of an equator thing, rather than a “cultural” thing..
It’s really about mosquitoes, right??
Well p don’t die during the winter in the tropics . Mainly because they have no winter lol..
Really all this is silly and off topic as humanly possible...
I doubt the originator is basing his beliefs off the local blood drives waiting list.. lol
It was a random “additional evidence “ claim, that though I don’t think it holds up, was never super relevant.
One thing as a liberal that made me question liberal stances on immigration in the US was living in China. In China they are very strict on undocumented workers, including white ones(there are plenty on tourist visas), and give very heavy fines for such workers, and deport them when caught. Not just that, but those who are documented must take medical tests for diseases including HIV. You also are supposed to be a foreign expert of some kind, i.e. not an unskilled worker. Those that fail also can't stay. Long story short, it became apparent to me that many non white nations have sensible and strict immigration rules. I guess they are "racist" too.

When will the USA do like nearly every other country and not allow legal immigration unless you:
Prove health status (no communicable diseases or illness)
Prove ability to support yourself
Clean criminal record
For some reason it's fine for most everyone else to do this but if it's the USA we're all a bunch of racists.
