Jesse Jackson, Dallas lawmaker blame racism for Ebola patient’s death

By Jessica Chasmar - The Washington Times - Thursday, October 9, 2014

Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price and the Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. have made similar arguments this week that Thomas Duncan, the first patient diagnosed with Ebola in the United States, died because his race and lack of “privilege” kept him from receiving the care he needed.

“It is historical what has happened in this community,” said Mr. Price, who is black. “If a person who looks like me shows up without any insurance, they don’t get the same treatment.”

Federal and state authorities said they are considering a full investigation into Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, where Duncan was being treated, a local CBS affiliate reported. The hospital has received criticism for initially turning the patient away and failing to screen for Ebola when he was experiencing Ebola-like symptoms.

Mr. Jackson echoed similar sentiments about privilege in a Tuesday blog entry for The Huffington Post.

“What role did [Duncan‘s] lack of privilege play in the treatment he received? He is being treated as a criminal rather than as a patient,” he wrote. “As followers of Jesus, we are called to work for the day when those with privilege, most often white people, have greater access to better medical care than those whom Jesus calls ‘the least of our sisters and brothers.’”

Texas Health Resources spokesperson Candace White issued a statement that said Duncan “was treated the way any other patient would have been treated, regardless of nationality or ability to pay for care. We have a long history of treating a multicultural community in this area,” the CBS affiliate reported.

With all these 'racists' with white only agenda in the US today it's time for 0bama to have everyone register to the local authorities as to who is special, who is not special, who is more special than special and who is extra special. All labels then must be displayed for comparison to enable everyone to see whether the person you are dealing with is more special than you.

Good ol John Wiley Price. Dallas' own version of Al and Jesse. He'll be screaming racism from within a Federal Prison soon enough.
