International Inherence to Africa’s Ebola Crisis
Prof. Howard C. Smith

This study is examining the racism in American society, and how the discussion of race has expanded to the issue of immigration. It highlights some of the current trends in public opinion to view Africa as a disease stricken nation and to further distant the country from the crisis’s of disease caused by poverty that affect many African nations. This current trend among White American society includes arguments to the need of protecting the border against current levels of ethnic migration from non-European countries. Thus, advocating and disallowing an increase of modern day African immigrants to study in the United States or be allowed citizenship because of the public racist views. The study goes on to argue that new forms of racism have evolved passed old arguments and become more hidden beyond what is seen as socially unacceptable. For this reason, now White Americans can hold to strong anti-immigration policy and disallowing educational, political and social opportunities towards modern African immigrants and others from different parts of the world. This creates and furthers a system of race that excludes the opportunities allowed within American society towards everyday White Americans, regardless of their past ancestry.
