Hello World!

Lately, my Facebook feed, along with, I suspect, yours, has been full of statuses, stories and links about one thing: Ebola.

Ebola is scary – it causes massive organ failure and hemorrhaging, both internally and externally, and it has a mortality rate of approximately 50% in this current outbreak. To add on to all of this, there isn’t a cure. 

Through all of this, there is one bright ray of sunshine: YOU AREN’T GOING TO GET IT.

Ebola is only transmitted through contact with the bodily fluids (blood, vomit, diarrhea, saliva, semen, or sweat) of someone who is SYMPTOMATIC. That means they at least have a fever of 100 or above. You could stand in the room with someone with Ebola and you would never get sick.

There are things we should prepare ourselves for, and guard against, and those things are FEAR and IGNORANCE. If we allow these to spread, we will create a stigma around the disease that will cause people to not seek help if they are symptomatic, and that could actually cause a health emergency.

So, please, educate yourself. You aren’t going to get Ebola. It isn’t airborne. You’re going to be fine. Below are some websites that you might find useful.

Any Black female who lives in Oakland

wifigirl2080:

Do not go to the liquor store on 90th and MacArthur, around 10-14 Black men will be standing out there with vans and they will try to snatch you up, the Arab dudes who own the liquor store are in on it do not go there during the night, if it wasn’t for my boyfriend being with me last night they would have got me #staywoke

So, ok, this sounds real…

Really racist.
