Pretty much tells the world that HIV is not the real enemy, we are the ones to blame. For stigmatizing, for not declaring (like majic), for not being faithful, for not using the rubber (which by the way, doesn't rob us of the orgasms). Talking of Majic, He was mentioned in this 'Memoirs of a Genie' book I got off amazon, written by HIV (if that is possible, it's plausible), the book was pure majic for me. Hearing HIV itself advocate about retiring from a life of serial and parallel assasinations gave even us subSaharan Africans hope. And hey, like Majic J. we gone make it 20 years and beyond. Watch us act out the scenes from that book!
