    1918 Influenza Pandemic

    Call it for what it is, the Spanish flu

    1. Veritas says:

      Its only called that because Spain actually reported their deaths while most of the world did not. It neither started nor ended there.

    2. Demarke says:

      It hasn’t been called that for almost a month, we just didn’t know how contradictory to outrage about calling this Wuhan, excuse me, we didn’t know how “racist” we must have been way back then, about a month ago, it was a different time.

      If you name something after it’s origin or place hardest hit, there must be awful bias behind it. That’s why I hate anyone from the Rocky Mountains (spotter fever), or anyone from Lyme County, or Germany (measles), or anyone with the last name Parkinson. After all, who could possibly understand that those are just names and not everyone those names associate with either have or are responsible for the diseases?
