    We missed you in NYC and so thrilled about your safe return. I love the pictures especially all of the ones that you are smiling in. I like 21 the best.

    Stop exploiting an entire continent for your own political gains Anderson. Africa has a lot of positive developments going on. There are more deadly diseases right here in America than many African countries. Why not report these nasty STDS and poverty in America on your t.v show? As an American I am very sad for such a racist report. HIV didn't start in Africa like you naive reporters like to report. This program is really intended for bigots to watch. I am an American who thinks that this program tonight is very unfair. Leave Africa alone and focus on our broken down society like same sex marriage, porn, broken down educational system. We are better than this. Leave these people alone because we are not even willing to help but exploit them.

    You didnt do your research regarding HIV. You should have dug deeper. If your looking for Viruses that could wipe out the world population I suggest that when you get back from Africa that you schedule a mission to the Miltary wing of National Institue of Health in Maryland. I don’t believe your research was truthful or honest and it was very misleading and disappointing.

    I have been a long-time fan of Mr. A. Cooper. The epidemic in Africa is truely a concern to everyone including Africans themselves. However, as an African, I have never seen anything on American TV that is good about Africa. A lot of people have been shown only one side of the picture. For example, we have very beutiful houses, citiies, and well educated people.
    On the issue of AIDS particularly, I heard a myth while in Africa that the disease originated from different parts of the world, not Africa. How sure are we that this disease originated from Africa? Could have Africans become another mistake like the tuskegee experiment, maybe?
