I would be willing to bet that in most of those cases in heterosexuals, the man has been out messing around with same gender sex - meaning even in heterosexual cases men having sex with men is still the cause.

What about women with it? Sometimes the stupidity of humanity makes me sick.
HIV/AIDS are transmitted by fluids, you cant say its men having sexton with men causing it, I could inject you with AIDS blood, that's not sexton, yet you still have it.

While due to the way this virus transmits from host to host (direct blood contact) female to male transmission is less likely to occur than the male to male and male to female routes, it still can and does occur and with increases in infection rates among women, the heterosexual men who have sex with them are having their risk of infection upped for them.

You people are freaking amazing! How about instead of GUESSING how the HIV/AIDS virus is transfered or acquired how about studying up on the matter. No wonder AIDS is rampant and has reached epidemic proportions in the black community and is on par with the AIDS epidemic in the African Congo.

Here is a good place to start..

Black males are the leading cause of death among young blacks.
“There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery. Then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved…. After all we have been through. Just to think we can’t walk down our own streets, how humiliating.”– Jesse Jackson, at a conference for the Rainbow/PUSH coalition Chicago 1993.

Based on a 96 page report on the causes of premature death by the CDC, the leading cause of death among young blacks of both sexes are black males. See report.

AIDS.

According to the CDC, black men are ten times more likely to be diagnosed with HIV or AIDS than white men. Among black men who allege that they have never engaged in a homosexual act, the figure rises to about 15 times the rate that heterosexual white men are diagnosed. Studies by the CDC also conclude that black men are more likely to have HIV or AIDS and go undiagnosed than white men.

All of this translates to black women being diagnosed with HIV or AIDS at a rate of over 20 times that of white women. The general trend is for black men to catch HIV/AIDS from each other in prison and then give it to black women when they are released. The CDC believes that 74% of black women who have HIV/AIDS contracted it through heterosexual contact with a man.

A 2004 report by the CDC says that AIDS is the:

* the leading cause of death for black women aged 25–34 years.
* the 3rd leading cause of death for black women aged 35–44 years.
* the 4th leading cause of death for black women aged 45–54 years.

By way of comparison, AIDS was only the 11th leading cause of death for white women aged 25-34!

Homicide

The same CDC reports say that homicide is the:

* the leading cause of death among black men aged 15-34 years.(Three age categories!)
* the second leading cause of death for black women aged 15-24 years.
* the fifth leading cause of death for black women aged 25-34 years.

Among women aged 15-24, homicide accounts for 5% of premature deaths in white females, but 20% of all premature deaths by black females.

Among both black and white men, homicide deaths peak at aged 25-34. The death rate by homicide among white men in this age group is 12.5 per 100k, and accounts for 10% of all premature deaths. The death rate by homicide among blacks in this age group is 101.8 per 100k, and accounts for 48% of all premature deaths.

The majority of black female homicide victims are killed by a current or former boyfriend, which many refer to as “femicide.” About 96% of all black homicide victims are killed by a black perpetrator overall. 85% of white homicide victims are killed by a white perpetrator.

“The National Black Women’s Health Project” has identified the battering of women as the number one health issue for African American women (Joseph, 1997).

Femicide is a leading cause of premature deaths in African American women aged 15-44.(Journal of Issues in Nursing Vol 7, No. 1)

In 1998, Salber and Taliaferro reported that the spousal homicide rate among African Americans is 8.4 times more than for whites. The incidence of spousal homicide is 7.7 times higher in interracial marriages compared to intraracial marriages.(Source WebMD.com )

Relationships with black men dramatically increase a woman’s chances of dying young.

Black females aged 15-19 are 3.9 times more likely to die of homicide or AIDS than white females in the same age group. This increases to 4.4 times for females aged 20-24 and 7.3 times for 25-34.

White women who engage in relationships with black men dramatically increase their chances of premature death or long term health problems from murder, beatings, and STDs.

Women with it most likely got it from having sex with a man who has had sex with men. Keeps coming back to that.

Should still be called GRID(if you didn't know this was the original name). It much more prevalent in homosexuals as without the threat of babies unprotected sex is rampant in the gay community. It also become very populated in the minority population for the same reason(unprotected sex not the pregnancy part of course).

The bottom line if minorities(including gay as minorities as they are by definition) could control themselves AIDS never would have become such an epidemic. AIDS is the punishment the world has to endure for having apathy and tolerating this behavior.

I know that's right! Some black women may still be open to date/marry black men but even they like the rest of black women no longer need or are desperate for black men. Girl so many black women who are friends, associates or just people I causually bump into who have seen me and my husband together, have asked me or my husband does he have any nonblack male friends who are single and looking.
Now black men who have spent decades foaming at the mouth of nonblack women and making them feel like queens on thrones even though they have never been at the top of any nonblack women's list now are upset because many black women don't see black men as a preference anymore.
Capree,

Well, I don't really have problems finding White men to date; I get asked out and I don't even have a "Paid Profile" online.

As much as it bothers many Black men, if any woman is attractive, friendly, opened, some will as you on a date. I really haven't had a problem but now when it comes to compatibility that's another issue! I'm really not compelled to "Date or Marry" a Black man. I don't like what they do to Black woman or like the fact that many neglect and abandon their children. The IR thing doesn't bother me but hypocrites like MACEO don't want to see attractive Black women date out........because White men do take the more attractive ones! lmao

if they can date White women so why cant Black women date White men? Seems like Black men have a hard time with it.

Maceo says "Your dating our enemy, White men hate us"!!!! You she-boons are taking the Race down! It finds it okay for him and his friends to marry white women and live off them? He hates White men but its okay to marry the enemies daughter?

What a Fuk'n Racist, hypocrite Maceo is! He has double standards!

My Quest is to Move on and I have. I decided to either date/marry out or remain alone. I have no interest in Black males there's too much drama, chaos, stats too high, lewd Ghetto behaviors, broke, want to live off you!.I simply don't have time for "Boys".

What I find funny is that within 6 months to a 1 year those women who "Date out" normally get married while Black women who put up with Black males normally don't have anything and get used or he wants to live off her!

Everybody is talking about how these Older Black men "Smirk" in younger Black women's faces and say their choices are for White women. These horrible Black males call Black women "She boon, bytches, Ghetto gaggers, sluts, whores" and smirk in their faces about how other races are better yet these same women don't have date, get used sexually and remain alone!

These women don't have any dates, get used by Black men who ask them to be "Jump Offs". The only time they get a Black man is if they want to use them or live off them!

To be honest, I don't know what's wrong with Black men. Every time I meet a BM at work or social they always have some type of "lewd remark" Its like they can't even give a simple compliment. Even when your nice to them; its always something "Negative comment " or they have to say something harsh.

When I go out, I hold the same conversation with the White men and I'm not given "Demeaning Remark they ask if I want to go to dinner or for coffee; its just that simple!

I'm tired of their Nasty Mouths and comments! In most cases, some are angry because I won't date them. So why does this have to resort to "nasty comments' or you calling me a Bytch because i don't want to date you?

They fail to look at themselves to see why you don't want them! Many are trifling, have poor character, no integrity or morals. They're damn sure not trustworthy; most are habitual liars!

The rest of the Black males all the brag about his how they "Get over on Black women and White women" and run games on them!

Sorry, I have NO INTEREST IN DATING BLACK MEN!
