    The Ebola outbreak in West Africa has sparked widespread fears that it could spread to the US, even though the only people to contract the virus in the country have been a few healthcare workers who treated Ebola patients.

    But many African immigrants in the US have become the victims of harassment and stigma related to the disease.
