Why is this the 5th thread started on this subject in two hours! Weren't any of the last 4 good enough for you?

It's no wonder the forums suck with so many pointless polls and repeat topics.

You didn't bring anybody here from anyplace.

And what does that have to do with STD's? And where are they getting it from, each other? I'd be willing to bet teen boys or even grown men are speading STD's as well. Since a lot of men have sex with teen girls.

ANother thing Steve..blacks and whites share alot of things in common..alot- including deseases.

when you stated that "we" should have never brought them over- we' ll that only speaks for a few dumb white men.. not all white men.. thus Jews had it hard too..
I take it that you are not a Jew or a decent white man.. you are discrace to your race. White man has done some very terrible things in my life time but it doesnt make all white men bad either... Black man has done bad things as well but it doesnt mean all black men are bad too.

People are people..and when it comes to HIV its known that it was a man made virus that was injected in people and animals.. thats how it spreaded..not by gay people.

and STDs could come from anything now days.. thus your ignorance shows poor representation of your race.

You are dumb and clueless.. and probably mad at the world..But when you look at all things bad and worse.. the worse for me is when your friend Jefferery Dahmer ate a dozen Black men--- He was quite thrilled to eat our sweet meat..
You are so jealousy that you're TART .

The little girls they study are usually the parentless kind...the kind who are "running wild"

They are getting this from people...no one wants to acknowledge this....

Also, little Black girls, the poor ones, rarely see a doctor.

WHY IS IT EVEN NECESSARY FOR YOU PEOPLE TO REPORT THE RACE OF THE GIRLS THAT ARE INFECTED. THIS SMACKS OF BLATANT RACISM.

A virus that causes cervical cancer is by far the most common sexually transmitted infection in teen girls aged 14 to 19, while the highest overall prevalence is among black girls -- nearly half the blacks studied had at least one STD. That rate compared with 20 percent among both whites and Mexican-American teens, the study from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found.

1 in 3 black men in america are not HIV positive. You must be referring to the specific prevelance of HIV in *black men who have sex with other men*(gay/bisexual/down low).

The incidence among total black men is much lower than 33%

Well Amish the thing is, if it does turn out to be true, the community has some serious work to do with it's youth to curb this trend.

Sheesh even 1 in 4 is too dang high. White and mexican parents should be very concerned about that as well.

The tactic of not talking about sex with your children is not stopping them from having sex, unfortunately they will sneak and do it unsafely and irresponsibly due to not being in control of their urges and hormones. As parents you can teach them before their peers teach them but IMO for many kids that window closes before they even leave elementary school...by that time they may have more knowledge of the birds and the bees than you're comfortable with.

I think I said this wrong...

the 1/3 with HIV stat is wrong if he's referring to all black men, but true if he's talking about black men who have sex with black men.

Sorry about any confusion.

Here is what I just wrote to the CDC about their STD research:

What is the CDC's stance on Single Payer Health Insurance for all Americans?
Your organization posts many articles as if you are concerned about the nations's health, yet there is not one word about the uninsured and underinsured, like my family.
We pay $360 a month to Assurant, a health insurance company, and our deductible is $10,000. Therefore, we NEVER see doctors. We have no preventive care. When we are hurt, we just hope it gets better.
Your organization's lack of a stance makes you look either clueless or conspiring with the current for-profit system by ignoring this issue.
IMHO you should be up front criticizing any government universal health care proposal that does not cover basic doctor's visits and emergency room treatment.
Your STD report is crocodile tears until you act concerned about all of us without the choice to avail ourselves of healthcare in the richest country in the world.

Health care coverage is so screwed that you really have to nip things in the bud and do better about precautions and prevention. Otherwise you catch an L and can't afford to fix it.

It's recommended you do more research about STDs and AIDS...just wearing a condom on the man ignores YOUR role in the matter.

Research the ways you can protect HIM from STDs with you...sure, he CAN wear a condom, but YOU have 14+ different ways of protecting him from a possible STD.
