You knew this was coming, right?

If you're concerned about Ebola, you're ... racist. The headline and sub-headline are sufficient; the whole article will make you scratch your head wondering just how pathetically stupid some people really are.

The problem with the west's Ebola response is still fear of a black patient
Ebola is now a stand-in for any combination of ‘African-ness’, ‘blackness’, ‘foreign-ness’ and ‘infestation’ – poised to ruin the perceived purity of western borders and bodies

The biggest racists must be Africans themselves, then, since (as Insty notes) they are closing borders and imposing travel restrictions.

The Guardian is just a glorified left-wing tabloid rag. They have a long history of anti-Americanism.
