Lettering note

Text surrounding dart board: upper half "Le SIDA vient d'Afrique, tous les medias occidentaux en parlent - Tu plaisantes? Pourquoi l'Afrique servirait toujours de bouc-émissaire? Non, il provient de l'occident, une erreur de manipulation génétique. Oyoki?"; lower half "Mais--pourquoi tant de polémiques? Que font les chercheurs? N'avons-nous pas droit à la vie? ("AIDS comes from Africa all the western media are talking about it." "You kidding? Why should Africa always be the scapegoat? No, it comes from the West, as an error in genetic manipulation. Get it?" "Why so much controversy? What are the scientists doing? Haven't we got the right to life?")
