This href=”http://www.nytimes.com/2002/12/28/international/africa/28AIDS.html?pagewanted=all&position=top”>article tells of a hospice in South Africa where women die of AIDS. 25%-that is the percentage of South Africans who have HIV. Of course, very few whites have AIDS. It seems that it is doing what the Afrikaner governments could not, slow down the growth of the black population. Of course, if the percentage of blacks begins to drop because of AIDS, I have no doubt that the semi-literate masses incubated in the townships will erupt in genocidal violence against the white middle & upper class that seems to be immune from the scourge.
The strangeness of it all is that black Africa’s most sophisticated political elite is turning a deaf ear to the problem. If authoritarians like Musveni in Uganda can affect behavioral change and mitigate the spread of the epidemic, what prevents a Democratic elected government from doing so? (Senegal has been able to combat the spread of HIV and it is a democratic state, so that can not be the problem)
