Nephew of Dead Ebola Victim: Uncle is Dead Because of Skin Color

Nephew of Dead Ebola Victim: Uncle is Dead Because of Skin Color

Friday on CNN’s “Erin Burnett OutFront,” the nephew of the late Thomas Eric Duncan, Josephus Weeks, said if his uncle were white, he would still be alive.

Weeks said, “I feel he should have been treated better the first time around. He’s the only person that has died from Ebola here in America. He’s a black man. He’s poor. Didn’t have insurance. He came for a visit and now went to the hospital. Had that been another name or another color, he would probably be living today and he would have survived it and that is what is hurting me the most, because they treated him the way they did because of the color of his skin and that is very upsetting and disturbing. And know that you stand a chance if you are white but you don’t if you are black.”
