And, you know stereotyping is very wrong and doing so makes you a very very bad person.
I just re-read this article and wondered why it was news.
We know here at RRW that Maine is in overload with its mostly African immigrants and the recent rush of asylum seekers, but this article is nothing more than a lecture to those dummies (I’m not calling anyone a dummy!) who live in Maine and don’t know about geography and other such things more worldly people might know about.
Read it yourselves. The bottom line is that no one can seem to find any Africans in Maine yet stereotyped as possible Ebola carriers, but just in case you Mainers have a hankering to start stereotyping, don’t do it says the Portland Press Herald.
…representatives of several Maine immigrant communities in Portland and Lewiston-Auburn said they have not experienced any negative interactions because of the Ebola outbreak.
But rest assured, the powers-that-be are getting a jump on the non-problem by distributing information on how you should be thinking.
By the way, it isn’t just happening in Maine, I saw other articles before I went away where “communities” were heading stereotyping off-at-the- pass.
One more effort to drill in the immigrants-are-victims meme (but, hey, aren’t they now stereotyping?).
About the map which can be found by clicking here—Tourism Update says it is updated every day. Cool huh?

And in case you aren’t aware we are taking refugees right now from DR Congo. The State Department is trying to get about 50,000 of them in here.
