AIDS is supposed to be the break down of the immune system so that it can't distinguish and/or fight off foreign bodies that may be detrimental to the body. Thus, it is said that people with AIDS die from other diseases, like pneumonia and the like.
So, this is the extended metaphor. Africa and Africans have linguistic AIDS; any word from english, french, etc. is allowed to come in and supplant existing words and/or the will/desire/ability to create new words to express other concepts from an indigenous Afrikan worldview.
Similarly, Africa and Africans have religious AIDS in the form of christinsanity (christianity) and is-scam (islam). So no matter how deleterious it is to one's psychological health, Africans worship the whitest, blondest, blue-eyedest beast they can lay their hands on. They live next to one of the largest lakes in the world and wash their extremities before prayer time like they lived in the desert, following out-of-context deified a-rab culture (cf. Religion is the deification of one's culture - Dr. Ben).
In short, some things may be helpful, other things may be harmful, others may be neutral, however, there is a lack of a substantive evaluative criteria to sift through what comes in and to reject what is harmful and accept what is helpful (especially for Afrikan Liberation in every area of activity). Thus Africans move towards greater dependence and neo-colonialism.
What medicine (evaluative criteria) can help African and Africans boost their immune system and cure their AIDS?
