    Was Ebola Manufactured to Kill Black People

    in Radio

    Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s believes that Ebola - the deadly disease ravaging parts of Africa and now diagnosed on American soil was designed by white scientists specifically to kill off blacks. He leveled the charge in The Final Call, stating  the disease is man-made and cooked up in a laboratory as a means of population control. “There is a weapon that can be put in a room where there are black and white people, and it will kill only the blacks because it is a genotype weapon that is designed for your genes, for your race, for your kind,  The current outbreak responsilbe for more than 3,300 deaths began in Guinea last December then spread to Liberia, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and Senegal.. The disease has a mortality rate of between 50 and 90 percent, and is spread by contact with body fluids. The first diagnosis on U.S. soil associated with the current outbreak came on Wednesday and involved a Sierra Leone man who flew to Dallas. But Farrakhan is not alone in his suspicions about Ebola. Villagers in remote areas of Africa have alleged the disease is a Western plot and has even killed aid workers. And in the U.S., Delaware State University agriculture professor Cyril Broderick wrote a letter in a Liberian newspaper charging Ebola was created by the U.S. military and pharmaceutical companies who are intentionally spreading the deadly disease in Africa.
