Health, Africa, and Debunking Myths in the Time of Ebola
By: Freda Koomson
I was recently privy to a conversation amongst African-American celebrity artists where some of their fears and concerns surrounding Ebola, it’s transmission, and it’s existence in the US, were candidly expressed. One artist even went so far as to gasp in fear “My cab driver on the way over here was African!” Understandably the world is at a standstill and it appears everyone from West Africa and specifically the 3 countries most heavily affected by Ebola are deemed unapproachable lepers in the face of this year’s growing Ebola epidemic.
American academic institutions are preemptively restricting travel to the region and memes aboundeth as to the lunacy of some of these attempts in light of the deadly risk-taking behavior many engage in daily. Amidst all of this hullabaloo, ignorance too abounds, and so do the myths surrounding Africa, Africans, and their  approach to health and healthcare. The media has also not helped assuage fears surrounding the topic.
It is time the world stops stringently holding on to an image of Africa as land of the unhealthy, starving poor. Relatedly while colonialism has rendered the continent more vulnerable to certain factors which hinder accelerated improvement and developmental progress, Africans have been and are still poised as  “health-conscious” and health embracing human beings despite what the media and sensationalist appeals to “help Africa” might lead one to believe. What has been lacking is a mixture of the right political will and focused funding efforts to solve the continent’s healthcare infrastructural woes.

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

There are actual Black people that live their entire lives and don’t say the n-word. Why do non-Black people feel like they, of all people, “need” to lmao? Just to hurt Black people, it is so obvious. They’d rather argue about why they should be able to for 10 years than take 10 seconds to have a heart and realize that it’s not theirs and it hurts when they use it. You are honestly worthless to me if you’re not Black and you use it like.. that’s that, get through it.

I made a political cartoon for English class about issues in school
It focuses on how teens are expected to make career defining choices with barely any experience, and also how parents often take so much authority that their child’s decision is not actually their own
If this gets some notes then I’ll make a colored version

thank fucking you. this defines me a few years ago really accurately

story time! At college some of us were talking about tattoos we want. Our teacher said “you don’t want to get a tattoo at eighteen because you might change your mind.” I said “I had to decide my entire career path when I was fourteen when I chose my GCSEs. I think I can decide on a bird on my wrist at eighteen.”

Belgian graphic artist & illustrator Laurent Durieux redesigns movie posters in a retro-futurisitc style. View his complete work via his website.

Laurent Durieux doesn’t actually live in a retro-futuristic world imagined by H.G. Wells and designed by Raymond Loewy. In Durieux’s world, gigantic robots tower over forests populated by mythical beasts such as Bigfoot and King Kong; city skies are thick with airships shaped like Snoopy, while Buck Rodgers-like vehicles whiz by on slender monorails; and movie monsters are portrayed as sensitive creatures, victims of their grotesqueries rather than revenge-fueled fiends.
