Apparently a female politician in South Africa is being labeled a racist by critics for saying that new president Jacob Zuma put his three wives at risk of contracting HIV by having unprotected sex with an HIV-positive woman.
I'm going to ignore anything that may have colored this woman's remarks beyond their actual content. I don't know if she's the Michael Savage of South Africa, but this is far from racist-sounding to me. It's not like she's making any assumptions about the man. He admits to being a polygamist and has three wives. He admitted having unprotected sex with an HIV-positive woman. Saying that he put his wives at risk of becoming HIV positive is not exactly racist. It's just taking the actions of an individual and questioning his judgment because of them.
Honestly, the fact that Zuma thought he could prevent HIV infection by taking a shower after sex should have disqualified him from office. Actually, the fact that he chose to have sex with a woman he knew to have HIV should have disqualified him. The guy has to make George W. Bush look like Stephen Hawking. Bush may have been a little dim-witted for a president and probably had a far too simplistic world view, but at least he wasn't porking women with life-threatening venereal diseases.
I just hope for South Africa's sake he doesn't end up pulling a Robert Mugabe and running his country into the ground.
