Nigeria, Ebola and the myth of white saviours

Until the lion learns to write, tales of the hunt shall always glorify the hunter.This pretty much sums up this article, while people talk about how brave the Americans are saving the Africans, nobody care about the thousands of Africans also working there. In fact the Africans have a larger chance of dying, the Americans are airlifted back for medical treatment the minute they get sick, while the Africans lie in makeshift hospitals waiting to die.
