Lets not lose the actual message people, awareness (and prevention) of this horrible disease that's affecting everyone quite frankly. Getting tested is so important, but unfortunately many do not do so. It's not just black people. Two of my white friends are HIV +. It's not just spreaded through unprotected sex but lets not forget intravenous drug use and blood transfusions. I do wonder why the AA community make up the highest in numbers though when they receive the same education in schools that everyone else does. I think parents don't talk enough about this at home and I mean parents of any group. They talk about pregnancy but not the deadly consequences of sex that goes along with it.

I just told you one of the reason WHY the rate is rising. Oh wait! As usual you only listen to your own posts. That's probably why your baby's daddy got as far away from you as humanely possible and you are alone raising that child by yourself. God help the kid.
For a long time black people didn't think they could get HIV. Bi and gay black men are vilified to the point that coming out for them might be life threatening in a black community. Have you listened to preachers in some black churches? I'd be afraid of coming out too. You need to understand the cultural REASONS as to why the number have risen Salidbar. It's easy to set back and blabber endlessly about, "Oh the black guys have this AIDS thing", but if you don't understand or care about what the data really suggests then you're just venting drivel.
I'm black and I've always known blacks can get HIV.
The first person to die of HIV in America was a black boy.
Aids has been ravaging Africa for decades... don't African-Americans realize that Africans are black?
Why are you people so STUPID?
And so why does black men not coming out and having gay sex secretly stop them from using protection?
Explain why secret gay sex, means wearing no protection? Why do gay AA men have to ride bare back?

The date suggests that AA men have low self worth and are of low intelligence.
The data also suggests that AA men rape in prison, simply because they like to fck other men.
The data also suggests that the growing IR of AA men will lead to the infection of other racial groups.

Black people generally are conditioned to think things affect us differently. This is true on many levels, but in the arena of awareness and health, many of us take things for granted. If you look at women who do the march for Breast Cancer Awareness, few if any are black. I did one for my company some years ago and mostly all the participants were white females with a sprinkling of asian and hispanic women. There might have been a few black women, but usually there aren't many. It's the same thing with AIDS awareness. Black people don't generally get involved and the community doesn't know as a result.

Nobody said it's just black people, but the article is about National Black HIV Awareness Day.
The reason why blacks are getting far more than everybody else, even though they get the same warnings and education... is because of African-American men being dirty and stupid.
They seem to be fcking with both men and women and of such low intelligence that they and self esteem that they cannot process information that everyone else CAN.

75% of new HIV/AIDS infections in the AA community are MEN.
The men are infecting the women.

Good thread. I want to spread some "awareness". So let's start with the often quoted and INcredible CDC.

By the end of this thread you will KNOW why the white man is the Devil, and why this mythical disease is also warfare against BLACK people.

So how do you know if you are infected with HIV?

You take a test right?


Now listen carefully and comprehend what the discoverer of HIV says on this topic...and he should know.

^^^^Says the man who claims AAs don't know blacks can get Aids, even though Subsaharan Africa is the Aids Cemetary of the World!

Black men are stupid men.
That's the reason why they get infected by a PREVENTABLE disease six and a half times more than white men in the same country.
AIDS can be prevented by using intelligence and discipline and being organized.

A LOT of men prefer bareback. Condoms are nice, but HEY. Any woman knows this. You like to single out black men, because you're angry, that's all. Bareback is natural. It's how you were conceived. Protection is still best, unless people are married and want to have a child. I don't really know about gay men, but from what I've read it's usually for the same reasons --riding bareback that is.

I didn't know the first person to die of AIDS in America was black. The image in the 1980's was always of gay white men. It's all they ever showed on television back then. The 60 Minutes episodes always showed mustached, middle-classed, white men that were gay as the victims. Racist people and angry black women such as yourself like to present HIV as only something black men can transmit. Quite frankly, I can't think of anything that's more misleading. So far all of the people I know of who have died from AIDS have been gay white men, but I live in a place where the demographics and culture is different.

The truth of the matter is that the virus doesn't discriminate. It never did.

I have noticed that too about far less AA women getting involved in awareness of anything really other than thenselves. Just my opinion. I'd love to do a small event or session about HIV/AIDS particularly in the black community just to get more involved. Make it more personal so everyone feel more comfortable in expressing their thoughts on it. More AAs should do volunteer work to start off.

Robert Rayford a 15 year old African American "Hustler" (male gay prostitute) from St Louis died from Aids in 1969.
He thought he got sick in 1966, but we now know Aids has a 10 year incubation period.
So he probably was sexually abused by an Aids "carrier" when he was around 5 or 6.
It's usual for men who sell sex to ave been beaten and sexually abused as children.
It is generally accepted that AIDS entered the USA via a Haitian Immigrant or visitor.

No, Salidbarr. I didn't say that.

The fact of the matter is that you just HATE black men. That's all there is to it. In fact you are SO angry at black men that you are willing to spread misinformation about who can transmit HIV. That's how ignorant you really are. You don't really care less about the virus or who gets it. What matters most to you is that statistics indicate a rise in black men acquiring the disease. Because this happens, somehow all black men must be dirty. Well, it's what the stats say, right?

Most people know how HIV can be prevented. However, you need to understand that for a long time many black people haven't had access to adequate medical care. I know you'll be here till next year and the year after that blabbering endlessly about how evil black men are, but it really wont account for anything. Until you are willing to look at the actual data behind the statistics, you will appear as nothing more than another hate-filled, good for nothing, two-bit, loud mouth.

nobody hates black males. they're not hatable material. if they were and they genuwinely believed they were, they'd be becoming happier, not angrier which is clearly evident all over the web. the American people are simply tired of the crime....nothing more or less.

The HIV retro virus has NEVER been isolated using the well established rules of science[1]. If the most expensive state-of-the art and sophisticated scientific equipment available can't isolate it, then why do you think a 1 cent latex condom can?

That's the equivalent of eating soup with a fork, and this is why you are an idiot.

Indeed if HIV has never been isolated how can there be and HIV test?

I'll save that for another post.

I know no one said that, but the dumb rednecks on this forum seem to believe so. It was pinpointed only at the ignorant ones. Yes AA men make up the highest numbers. However, these women are spreading their legs without questions as well. If a woman trusts a man that much to not take precautions for herself, then I'd say it goes both ways. I do agree with you though on these men spreading it by sleeping with both sexes. But lets not rule out heterosexual sex. Couples don't get tested together is another problem. Trust no one, only the papers.

I'll tell you a secret.
other races of men are not going for extra medical care, they are simply buying and using condoms.
That's what their secret is.
That's the difference between white men and black men.
