Wow! Jesse Jackson Says Racism Behind Man Dying From Ebola

The nephew of Thomas Eric Duncan believes race played a factor in the death of his uncle, and to nobody’s surprise Jesse Jackson expressed his approval of the theory.

Josephus Weeks told MSNBC host Ronan Farrow that he believes the hospital that treated Duncan had him sent home originally because he was “a poor black man” with a West African accent.

Jackson agreed, saying Duncan was turned away because the concept of “anti-immigrant, anti-refugee, anti-black” is “real in our country.”

Watch by clicking the image below (H/T: Weasel Zippers):

FARROW: Why do you think your uncle was turned away from the hospital initially?

NEPHEW: I mean, again, he didn’t have insurance. And he’s a poor black man. he had a very deep accent coming from west Africa And I believe they didn’t believe he deserved the care that, you know, everybody else should get, you don’t treat people like that.

FARROW: You just heard the family say they think there was a discrimination piece to this. do you think this is about discrimination against immigrants, poor people?

JACKSON: It’s a fact there’s an anti-immigrant, anti-refugee, anti-black, is very real in our country.

Politico reported however, that the reason Duncan was directed to return home was due to a computer software issue.

All that’s known definitively is that an intake nurse’s notation that Duncan had recently been in Africa — which should have set off alarms leading to his medical isolation— was somehow ignored. He was sent home and may have exposed up to 18 people before being readmitted two days later.

The medical community’s readiness to accept the hospital’s first account, of a flawed electronic health record, displayed the level of unhappiness with the $30 billion federal program to transform the way America’s medical system records and shares patient information.

That software was designed by Epic Systems, a company run by Obama appointee Judith Faulkner, whose attempts to establish a monopoly amongst hospital systems has led to doctor complaints that the software disrupts information exchange.

If an Obama appointee designed the computer systems that led Duncan to be sent home initially, does that make him the racist?

    J. Jackson HAS to help trump this up…play the race card….get a law suit going…for someone else….or he’d be out of a job.

  2. Sandy says:

    Jesse Jackson is the race baiter here. He is there to just cause trouble like he did in Mo. I believe the hospital was not prepared for an ebola patient. Color has nothing to do with it. It is people like Duncan that brought ebola to the US and spread it all around. I am sorry he died but the prez has a lot to do with it. Jackson stay away, you are not needed there.

  3. Thomas says:

    Jessie Jackson is a moron of the highest degree, not because he’s black but because he is a bigot, a racist, a hater and a pot stirrer. Seems like every time a black person dies in America racism is the root cause. The man brought a deadly virus to America and infected God knows how many people, if he had been cured he should have been convicted of endangerment, but he wouldn’t have because that too would have been labeled racist. Hey Jessie the race card has been worn out and you have made a living of the misery of black people your whole life and you sir are the biggest racist and hypocrite in America.

    No insurance? Where did he work?

  5. Lenny says:

    The Jerk was touching Ebola patients in Liberia…he got sick, he jumped a flight to the USA, did not tell anybody, infected people , he went to a hospital unprepared for ebola and died…but it is racist. But it is racist so Jackson can buy another country home, with his share of the lawsuit money….nice

  6. Janis says:

    I saw his nephew on TV thanking the hospital for the care his uncle received. Then Jesse shows up and plays the race card and the nephew changes his story. How long ’til the lawsuit is filed? Jesse, go take care of your illegitimate kid and the son in prison.

  7. JoaLeifes says:

    I don’t think Mr. Duncan should’ve been allowed to enter the United States because of the Ebola in Africa. If Mr. Duncan was poor, how did he get the money to fund his trip to America & get a place to live while he was here? Why does the race issue factor into this?

  8. Kevin says:

    Please the race card again the black people of the world must be ashamed of the low life’s that keep throwing it down. Start taking pride in yourselves and stop.
