    MONROVIA/FREETOWN (Reuters) - Australia became the first developed country on Tuesday to shut its borders to citizens of the countries worst-hit by the West African Ebola outbreak, a move those states said stigmatized healthy people and would make it harder to fight the disease.

    Australia's ban on visas for citizens of Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea followed decisions by the U.S. military to quarantine soldiers returning from an Ebola response mission and some U.S. states to isolate aid workers.

    This is the kind of decision that is made when the President of a country is not obsessed with race.

    Considering how it's been handled, I presume this is a rhetorical question!!!!

    Well, RACE, maybe, maybe not; but unquestionably POLITICAL!!!!!
