Spokeswoman For Ebola Victim Family: Community Feels Duncan Not Treated Fairly Due to Race

Friday during a press conference, Seymendy Lloyd, a spokeswoman for Louise Troh, the finance of deceased Ebola victim Thomas Eric Duncan, said, “He [Duncan] was not treated fairly,” and the community feels , “this was a racial issue.”

Lloyd said, “At the moment they’re [the family] are in the grieving process. Legal action is something that will probably come later on. At this moment they’re grieving over the fact they were not able to give him a decent burial but had to be cremated the same day of his death.” 

When asked by a reporter, “What’s the feeling in Dallas right now amongst the West Africa community?” 

Lloyd replied, ” Well, it’s not only the African community. I think it’s the whole of Dallas. I’ve talked to whites, blacks, hispanics. I don’t think it’s a black issue right now when it comes to the community and the way the community feels about this. I think the community feels that it’s a human right issue and it needs to be addressed. If it was left with the community, there would be a lawsuit being filed right now. That’s how outrageous it is.”

“Yes. a lot of the people, even when I was on the plane coming in, I didn’t tell them who I was, just listening to the conversation. In my travels. and it was white, blacks and everyone stating that this man was not treated fairly. He was not treated fairly, and they felt this was a racial issue.”
