Central Florida has 70 percent of the Leprosy Cases In the USA. Spread through prolonged contact in predominantly white communities! Armadillos may be causal factor.

There were 159 new cases of leprosy in the US in 2020, the most recent year for which data was studied, according to a report published on Monday by the CDC. Florida was among the top reporting states, and almost a fifth of all cases were reported in the state's central region. Most of those cases are in Brevard County. In fact, Brevard County has seen the most new leprosy cases in the state since 2011. And in 2020, Brevard accounted for over 12% of all new leprosy cases in the nation. In 2020 the Justice Department Secured $150,000 in Lost Wages and Damages for Victim of Racial Discrimination in Case Against Brevard County, Florida.

A weekend stunt by nine individuals who hung banners with racist messages from a highway overpass in Brevard County appears to have been the work of a loose-knit national anti-semitic organization called the Goyim Defense League, according to hate group monitors. The Space Coast event, which led to cries of outrage from residents and local politicians on both sides of the political divide, was the latest display of antisemitism in Brevard County, News 6 partner Florida Today reports. It also took place under the eyes of law enforcement officers who made no arrests but encouraged the group to take their signs down and go home after several hours on the overpass near Port St. John on I-95.Many of the most-violent racist attacks against blacks in America during the 20th century occurred in Florida. Between 1900 and 1930, Florida had more lynchings per capita than Alabama or Mississippi. In 1920, an Election Day dispute in Ocoee ended with the lynching of July Perry and terror attacks that drove blacks out of that west Orange County town. A year later, a report that a black man raped a white woman set off a riot in north Florida’s Levy County. A white crowd went on an arson-and-killing rampage that decimated a black hamlet known as Rosewood.

Beginning in the 1930s, Harry T. Moore was a civil rights leader, teacher, and founder of the Brevard County NAACP. After the war he became president of the state NAACP. After the Supreme Court had ruled in 1944 that white primaries were unconstitutional, he conducted voter registration drives and succeeded in registering 31% of black voters in Florida, a higher percentage than in any other southern state. The white establishment resisted, firing both him and his wife Harriette in 1946 from their teaching positions as economic blackmail against them because of their activism. On Christmas night, 1951, a bomb exploded under their home, fatally injuring both of them. The murders were racially motivated and believed committed by members of the Ku Klux Klan. Four separate investigations were conducted, including the first by the FBI in 1951–1952, and the last in 2005 by the state. No one was ever prosecuted. So, in conclusion if there was a place in Florida where divine retribution would place leprosy it wouldn't be far fetched to see Brevard County as a location of interest.
