At a virtual conference on Optimal Black Health Care during COVID, held on Saturday May 28, by the Committee to Eliminate Media Offensive to African People (CEMOTAP), the scientist Dr. Velva Boles, M.D., Ph.D. expressed her disgust with the fact that the media continues to show pictures of African children covered with pustules in their discussion of so-called monkeypox even though, she says, “the monkey… has little or nothing to do with the disease.” “In my opinion, the term monkeypox is intended to be absolutely derogative,” said Boles. Boles went on to say that she believes the media, in their persistent depictions of the African child in connection to this outbreak, is “calling the little Black child monkey.” Boles further pointed out that the recent cases of this disease that the media has discovered were in white males. She might have also added, white males with a history of male-to-male sex contact.

They don’t see race or murder, but they do see color
To be sure, many if not most whites would not consider the monkey misnomer racist. We can suspect this because whites don’t even see the murder of Blacks as either racist or murder. Forty-six percent of Republicans and 10% of Democrats who witnessed Derek Chauvin murder George Floyd over and over on TV not only didn’t see anything racist going on but also disagreed with the guilty murder verdict. Yet imagine the furor if the Black Press used pictures of white male same sex practitioners with every mention while using the term “gerbilpox.” For those who don’t understand the reference look up “gerbilling.” It is an alleged sex act—according to PBS, on May 23, 2022, “In an interview with The Associated Press, Dr. David Heymann, who formerly headed WHO’s emergencies department, said the leading theory to explain the [current] spread of [so called] monkeypox was sexual transmission among gay and bisexual men at two raves held in Spain and Belgium.” CNBC reported on May 25, 2022, that “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Monday alerted gay and bisexual men that monkeypox appears to be spreading in the [gay] community globally.”

“Africa, according to white scientists, is the Petrie dish infecting the world”
Infectious diseases are relatively nondiscriminatory if a person comes into contact with an infectious agent. Even so, from its outset to the present, AIDS continues to be a disease mainly among men engaged in male-to-male sex contact. Yet, in 1987, Africa was again scapegoated in the white press as they quoted one of the now widely discredited so-called discoverers of the AIDS virus, who blamed Africa. He attributed the origin of AIDs to the strange practices of Africans with the African Green Monkey. He was quoted on Aug. 9, 1987, by David Remnick in the Washington Post as saying, “They do a lot of funny things in Africa, like when they make the lower lip stick out or when they put things in their noses.” In white media, Africa is always scapegoated and used as the toilet for all negative white impulses and all unpleasant issues. The decline in pollinating bees in the U.S. was attributed to African killer bees and the origin of COVID-19 has been attributed to African bats, which if we follow the logic were apparently eaten by Chinese in Wuhan, China.

“Isn’t white research and bio-warfare a simpler explanation?”
These bizarre explanations for the African origin of disease are a reflection of both European culpability and white supremacist defensive projection. There are more reasonable explanations for the origins for all of these diseases. Yet these explanations have been labeled conspiracy theories by whites. For instance, the first case of monkeypox was discovered in research monkeys at a lab in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1958. However, the first human case was not discovered until 12 years later. Where? –– in Democratic Republic of Congo. Ironically those natural cases were contracted from rodents and not monkeys. Other than monkeys in white research labs, monkeys don’t get it and are not the natural host reservoir for the virus. Similarly, the American discovery of the AIDS virus was discovered in a National Cancer Institute lab whose location was the prior site of the American Biological Warfare Unit on Ft. Detrick, Maryland. This biowarfare unit was supposedly shut down in 1969 by order of Richard Nixon. Let’s just call that “Coincidence Theory.” When asked about research to make the coronavirus more dangerous gain-of-function research Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which is part of the NIH, told Congress in May (2021) that the NIH “has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.” Yet Richard Ebright, board of governors’ professor of chemistry and chemical biology at Rutgers University and laboratory director at the Waksman Institute of Microbiology, told Newsweek documents obtained in a Freedom of Information Act request show “unequivocally” that assertions by the NIH director, Francis Collins, and the NIAID director, Anthony Fauci, that the NIH did not support gain-of-function research or potential pandemic pathogen enhancement in Wuhan are untruthful.
