If the disease is so contagious, why would "America" even let anyone in the country that comes from the countries the disease originates, don't give a damn who they are, what color they are??? If people are let in who have the disease, to be treated, obviously there's a chance the disease will spread. There are no inoculations/medications to stop this disease.

It would be the same way here or anywhere else because of how infectious the disease is, especially if we had no more hospitals, clinics, doctors and nurses than Liberia. However, I believe that most of these people are dying and not surviving mainly because they are not getting intravenous nutrients and hydration until they recover from a disease where the nature of the disease causes extreme diarrhea, which causes dehydration and an inability to keep food and drink down.

I'm in agreement with Dick Gregory regarding Spike Lee, of all people to have the nerve to criticize what is "disrespectful to his (our) ancestors". In my opinion, Spike Lee has only made three movies that were not insulting to African Americans, and that was Malcolm X and Miracle at St. Anna, and Mo' Better Blues, (I'm not counting his documentaries in the comparison).
