The World Health Organization has once again proven just how screwed up their priorities truly are.
WHO scientists are planning on renaming the disease monkeypox because they now feel that it is racist.
Over 30 scientists believe that there is an urgent need to change the name of the disease, which they claim is discriminatory and stigmatizing.
The mere fact that they even thought of this reveals that, if anyone is racist, it’s them…

GBN broke the story:
The World Health Organisation is set to officially rename the monkeypox virus amid concerns that its current name is racist.
More than 30 scientists from across the world said earlier this month the monkeypox name is discriminatory and stigmatising, adding that there was an “urgent” need to rename it.
And now WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said that WHO is working with partners on changing the name of monkeypox and its variants.
30 WHO scientists believe that the most “urgent” matter with monkeypox is that it should be renamed…
Dare I ask why we take anything that these people say seriously anymore?

It seems the WHO are being pushed to focus their limited energy on *renaming* Monkeypox to the utterly unintelligible "hMPXV" because… maybe racism?!
I swear the pathogens are running the asylum at this point.https://t.co/XnPZPdYmJW

The BBC has more on this “urgent” matter:
Continued reference to the virus as African is both inaccurate and discriminatory, they said.
Some 1,600 cases of the disease have been recorded globally in recent weeks.
While 72 deaths have been reported in countries where monkeypox was already endemic, none have been seen in the newly affected 32 countries, such as the UK.
At the latest count, as of 12 June, there were 452 confirmed cases in England, 12 in Scotland, 2 in Northern Ireland and 4 in Wales.
The World Health Organization says it will hold an emergency meeting next week to determine whether to classify the outbreak as a public health emergency of international concern – the highest alarm the UN agency can sound.
So, the WHO is about to hold an emergency meeting to determine if the current monkeypox outbreak should be classified as a public health emergency, yet the real focus is on the name of the disease being racist…
The WHO is renaming monkeypox… because the liberals who saw the name are the real racists who equate black people to monkeys…
No one else was thinking that.

How racist do you have to be to think Monkeypox is racist?
What are they trying to say?

If you hear the term "monkeypox" and immediately start thinking about all the racial implications, I think we know who the racist is.
