Pewu, 29, who emigrated from Liberia in 2005, and her son Micah recently underwent an experience where they were insulted and linked to the spread of the Ebola virus. Pewu's experience points to an alarming trend. While many Americans have reached out to help, African communities in the U.S. are reporting an increasing number of incidents of ostracism.
