Well I guess that answers a large range of inquirys . 1 afrika has the highest amount of STD's as well as HIV and AID's with hundreds of thousands of starving to death children ,rapes by "Militia"? and anyone else that feels the need. seems to me a bit of self worth and simple pride just might stem a part of it. they refer to the dance as showing off "secret Parts?" well you can dismiss easily the secret idea. when people act more like animals in heat dont come to mee looking for donations to feed clote and otherwise care for their filthy endeavors

Down here in Memphis we wouldn't quite rate that as going platnium. But if anybody was offended by that, don't go to a Bobby Rush show.

What lengths people will go, to be exhibitionists, never ceases to bewilder me. What these young women don't take into consideration is, that once on camera, it never goes away.

Wow, Dirty dancing makes it around the globe, only takes two decades, but now it means these girls are exhibitionists, with poor self worth, no pride, promiscuous, and we are blaming the african american community?? Sorry, am I on Care 2, or the 700 Club?? Having grown up from being a promiscuous exhibitionist with poor self worth, I can tell you people often dance BECAUSE IT'S FUN, IT'S FREE, IT HURTS NO ONE, AND IT MEANS NOTHING!
Regardless of anyone's judgement, or wanting to blame AIDS, it's just damn dancing people. Get over it! Or like Daiane and Krasmina, find something more important to care about!

Exuse me... but I saw teh sam e or even worse things on rich western countries TV programs, they are raising a lot of fuzz for nothing. And about "people acting more like animal in heat...", what about those US animals in heat who go on holiday to such countries?.

I was in Dakar in 2002. I saw nothing like this. Damn, I must have been in the wrong clubs.

Everyone seems to go for the perverse. Is there no morality in this world anymore?
