I'd seen some reports of that method of trying to "cure" HIV/AIDS.
This is not a black/white issue, much as some people love to turn it into one. It's a BAD GOVERNMENT issue. Southern whites holding slaves a few
hundred years ago doesn't matter RIGHT NOW. Look, everywhere you go on this planet, someone of SOME color/origin/nationality/religion most likely
took that land from someone of another color/origin/nationality/religion. It's the way humans do it. I'm more powerful and advanced
technically/militarily, so I'm taking over your stuff. If you resist, I'm gonna kill all of your fighting aged men and most likely rape your women.
Not a black/white thing, although I guess it could be blown into a male thing if one was wont to do so.
The issue is... these countries are miserable toilets because their governments let them become so. Whether their government is white or black
doesn't matter... it's their government. Everybody thought the world was gonna explode in rainbows and teddy bears when Mandela got in the game,
but it didn't. It's a trainwreck and someone has to stop it. If their government won't, then the question becomes... who will? As a humanitarian
issue, it would seem that many other countries would jump right in. Unfortunately, developed nations aren't willing to spend a big chunk on a
strictly humanitarian effort anywhere, even in their own home turfs. So that leaves... what? Revolution. Their countries are, unfortunately, going
to have to see a lot of long, costly civil war before something happens. And it's a good bet that the bad guys will win.
