In the article “Ebola, Poverty, and Racism”, Thadeus Pato claims that the Ebola virus is not a new discovery, that Scientifics discovered the disease back in 1976.

Being raised in an Islamic home, I could never understand why my mother and sister could never come to the mosque with my brothers and I. When I got to the mosque, I never saw any women. Why?
