We’re beginning to understand why the comedian goes by @RealDLHughley on social media — it’s for the benefit of those of us who keep asking, “Is this guy for real?” Today Hughley is asking his followers if Thomas Eric Duncan, the first person diagnosed in the U.S. with Ebola, was initially denied treatment because he’s black or non-American.

Never mind that Duncan is fortunate to be treated at all, as the Liberian government says he lied on an airport questionnaire about having come into contact with an infected person.

Can we get a second opinion?
