File this particular bit of unfortunate irony under the category of World’s Worst Failure in Timing…
A Taste Of Africa Comes To Dallas!
Dallas Weekly, a 55 year-old, Black-owned and Black-centric newspaper ran this as their cover right as the first case of ebola in America struck a Black man in Dallas, TX. A taste of Africa comes to Dallas indeed. Ouch!
Please note, however, that this issue of DW was designed and scheduled before news broke of the Dallas Ebola victim, who arrived in Dallas from Liberia on the September 20th, went to the hospital on the same day this issue hit the news stands, and was not diagnosed until five days later.
