Africa is beautiful.
I think it's the only place I have
ever really wanted to visit.

I have followed the AIDS epidemic very
closely....world wide.
The large # of AIDS patients in Africa has nothing
to do with the ppl of the continent. It was
started there by an ambitious scientist who used
the ppl for testing a new vaccine. Unfortunately
for those ppl the vaccine was tainted w/this virus.

The ppl of Africa were just guinea pigs.

No surprise considering how these ppl have been
treated by other countries.

@arctic, Most African countries have been recording significant drops in HIV/AIDS infection cases due to massive awareness campaigns. Plus the ARVs help people atleast prolong their lives. It's good news and a first critical step in the right direction.

Significant drop in Aids = More people that had it are now dead.

Yes.

We have the UN to thank for a lot of that.
After they filed law suits against major pharmaceutical
companies to release the patent on ARVs and make them
more accessible to the general public.

Mostly it's the education. When ppl understand the
disease they can prevent infection.

Honestly I don't see it.
I've never seen bad news about Africa.

As far as Hollywood goes the only movies I can
remember about Africa is Blood Diamond and
Under the Sun (which btw used African actors).

Both movies (basically) were about the damage
the "rebels" do to the continent.

Yes, but these movies potray Africa as a whole as being violent and a hostile environment for everyone concerned. Some potray primitivity on the part of Africans themselves. The Gods must be crazy made westerners think that all Africans live in the bush like the Kalahari Bushmen. You know what I mean. On CNN, I stopped watching it. I prefer Quatar's Aljazeera English news. I have never seen anything positive covered by most western media. Just wars, famine and diseases. Nobody has covered the fact that Kenya has the newly completed Thika Highway which is an 8 to 10 lane superhighway making it East Africa's busiest highway! They'd rather focus on the wars in Congo and Sudan. Africans are perceived as very illiterate people in the world. Smdh. It's really unfair.

I guess you'd be correct about that.
We do see the bad and not the good most of the time.

I was surprised to see a program on Animal Planet
recently about the ASPCA in Cape Town.
Why it surprised me that Africans put the same value
on the lives of animals as we do I don't know.
(maybe b/c I know how they are treated in other parts
of the world like Mexico and the Middle East.)

But the ASPCA there did a great job of rescuing animals
from bad situations and helping to educate the public on
how to care for animals.
It was good to see.
