Recently, the Ebola virus has outstripped Guinean borders; the whole continent is in danger. Not only is the epidemic killing but it also has the power to change your perception. In fact, after this scourge, the world is not able to see Africans as usual anymore. This is not racism; this is fear of catching diseases. Although pity and assistance have been given for HIV cases, reservations have been also voiced. That is to say, people are afraid of Africans. At the present time,...
