US Ebola Outbreak Linked to World Racism

In a recent article, an Liberian man who was hospitalized in Dallas feel victim to the Ebola Virus for which now many have determined the cause for the present Ebola outbreak. Upon acceptance at the local Presbyterian Hospital, the Liberian man was gravely ill. It is unfortunate that the first victim of the Ebola virus on American soil is of a Black descent. Even more tragic is that the Ebola outbreak could have been minimized if it were not for racism in this world.

The Ebola virus seems to develop in tropical regions such as west Africa. Tropical regions are found between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. There are over 180 countries across the earth that contain tropical regions in their country. The difference for many of these countries is that they have superior medical facilities that thwart most efforts that cause such epidemics as the Ebola outbreak.

It has been the decision of world leaders, such as the G-20,    not to develop these third world countries so that they will at least have adequate medical facilities and training that will eliminate viruses such as the Ebola outbreak. Even the Asian president of the World Bank has stated that he has an interest in helping with the Ebola outbreak. His interest may be to little to late.

It is time for world leaders to reconsider the racism that selects which countries thrive in technological advancement while others continue to remain poor and unprotected. This scheme, as the Ebola outbreak continues to unwind, has proven that racism in his world is detrimental to existence of human race.

Even the animals have more common sense than to selectively eliminate of the basis of differences such as race. Animals choose to eliminate of the basis of the need to survive. Racism does not guarantee that one race will survive over the next. But what the Ebola outbreak is reminding us of is that when we deny others the necessary technology to protect themselves, we actually position ourselves to suffer as well.

The bottom line is that the Ebola outbreak is a reminder that we have a duty to protect those who can not protect themselves. And when we do not, instead of those who continue to prey on the short comings of others, the Ebola outbreak may become a reminder that at any time mankind can become the prey.

About Classroom Racism Exterminator

Racism is a menace and so we’ve been taught for ages which is the primary need for a diversity expert. However, even in this modern society of today where we see a lot of colored celebrities performing on stage with huge fan followings and of course an Afro-America President for the USA, we are still in a phase where racism exists in all its brutal glory and has been eating away at the society like a plague. Classrooms, are one of the most affected areas where color differences and racism exists to its extremes. Even after decades of progress and a lot of communal efforts at bridging the gaps between colored students, white students and teachers, it is sad to say that the disparities still exist and are just as pronounced today as they were back in the 1950s. Colored students, even in the likes of New York City, are attending under resourced schools or have been significantly isolated and made to be unequal in regular schools. Even if the teachers are well-intentioned, perpetuating the structural racism that has taken deep roots into the fabric of our education system is a tough task and make the need for a diversity expert imperative. Teachers need to recognize the biases that exist within the classroom and also take conscious measures to address them and their own biases of course. James Baldwin once said, “it is your very own responsibility to change this society, if you think of yourself as an educated person.” Dr. Derrick L. Campbell took this quote very effectively and straight to the heart and thus this Classroom Racism Exterminator happened. Classroom Racism Exterminator is an initiative that will teach you about your duty and moral obligation towards eliminating racism from the classrooms. This is where and how you will learn about what you need to do to produce a better society that is free of biases and disparities amongst the blacks and the whites. Because we understand how classroom biases and conversations about racism are difficult and how teachers and students almost avoid the topics altogether, we have put together a range of effective methods and products to help address the problem at hand and talk meaningfully to counter issues related to race and racism in the classroom. Diversity expert Dr. Campbell understands that it takes a lot of courage to talk about race and racism and that racial issues need to be viewed through a very critical lens that can understand and attend to the pertaining aspects of racism in the classroom. And therefore through this website we have made a conscious effort to eliminate racism from the classroom and make the educational system equal and beneficial for all. We know and we understand that there are no words that can actually describe how racism feels. There are cases and everybody tends to deal with it in their own manner. Some might lash out verbally or others might just withdraw into shells. Whatever the case, people don’t talk about it openly and teachers don’t really make a conscious effort at addressing the issue. We don’t really know if our children or if the youth is learning to be educated or become racists in their classroom. Our program is focused on helping children of color and regardless of their race, their full potential. We want every student to be able to recognize and reach their full potential so that they think of themselves as responsible citizens of their country and not regard themselves as worthless human beings. Here you will find motivational books and flash card games, all of which have been designed focusing on eliminating racism completely from our classrooms. The books and the games have been consciously designed keeping in mind the American society and educational system. It is a small effort on our and Dr. Campbell’s part to help this society become a better place to live in. A little about diversity expert Dr. Campbell Dr. Derrick L.

He has lectured at various events including the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), Iron Sharpens Iron Men’s Conference and a lot of local churches.

He realizes how a child would feel if he/she was made to think they are worthless human beings. Diversity expert Dr. Campbell is compassionate and related to the experiences and therefore this initiative is a constant and continual effort to eliminate racism manifested in us, completely from the classroom and from our society.
