From the article:

"According to CDC statistics, one in every 16 black men will become infected with HIV during his lifetime."

So I guess the CDC is 'racist' too?

How long will Blacks live in denial?

"“About half of the estimated 1.1 million people in the U.S. living with HIV are African American. When we look at the 2010 data, about half of all the new infections each year also have been among African Americans,” McCree noted."

HALF of the HIV cases come from just 13% of the population!!! So right now about 1.5% of all AAs already have HIV?

I guess burying heads in the sand must work...like a bunch of ostriches...

People been saying for years that the real enemy of the Black man, is the Black man...

Why Dating IR leads BW to marriage-Dating BM "Void of values" is a waste of many women's time!

Despite Black men venting and saying White men/other races don't marry Black women; many do when they date them. Other race of men have a tendency to "marry" because they have those patterns while Black men are more "geared" to using women for sex, gain or to put a roof over their heads at the women's expense.

The gender war has decreased Black men's options within the race; many attractive, traveled, educated Black women are opening their options. Their unwilling to settle for Mr. Marginal Black man who comes knocking on their door." bringing nothing to the table". Many instances; Black males just want "any woman" even if the values are not the same.!

I even hear many White women complaining about Black males and how their left with biracial babies to raise alone, why the black man cheats with other White women and lives in her place!

Many of these shrewd Black women want someone on their level even if that means dating/marrying outside the race. They realize that most Black males want to "Run games" or waste time being "Cultural players" for decades investing in elusive pursuits like sex, sports or bragging rights. They harbor the "pauperism mentality". They get no returns because they don't investment. On the backend of their lives their ashamed and hide!

For some reason; Black males don't believe in teaching the next generation, being examples, mentoring, or investing in their Youth. Black males invest more in "Being Players, manipulating women; sexual dominance, crimes and getting over". Their sole focus is on always on their penis; while abandoning all "common sense" and end up with nothing.

If your a black woman you really need to pick up the signs early;"Don't invest"! You'll find out later that many of these behavioral problems existed early, and you can avoid them by not dating these men.

Many Black men are not marriage material! Many Black men don't even respect any women they objectify them!

If you want a partner; your better off finding a Man that had a Father as an example this way he sees a pattern of what a relationships is suppose to be. In the case of Black males many Have "Poor relational skills" on how to treat women as they gain their knowledge from the Streets, Rap music which objectifying women!

Black males look to be "Dependent" on women. They want a woman who will be the "Mother & Father" and then "Resent" you for being more powerful and educated than he is!

Find a man of other race on your level and stop wasting your time on men who don't value themselves!

The horrific stats are not high for "No reasons' its because Black men are apathetic towards Black women and childrens plight.

If you value yourself as a Black woman seeks other races of men who will value you as a woman! Many Black men disrespect Black women, don't invest in women, children, communities or themselves because its been passed down generationally and Black men feel entitled to disrespect you!

If a man doesn't "Invest in himself"; HE WILL NEVER VALUE YOU! He will never respect what value you brought to yourself either; because he's never sacrifice for anybody including himself.

When a man "Values himself" he doesn't do behaviors that bring "devaluation" to his character,family or communities. Their reputations are at "Stake" as well as their images.

Only a Fool and a Scoffer brings disgrace to himself and then shame to others!

Black women Continue to date/marry well to elevate the race; focus on dating/marrying outside the race.

Yes. AIDS is down right racist.

It's alright, let nature take it's course. Oh wait, Obama is going to save their day, right. He's giving all sorts of free shit out.

Effective treatment would be if sexually active people with the disease who don't always use protection were to get a high velocity lead injection to the back of the head.
