That kind of not-thinking will get you, and the people you love, very sick and very dead.

Quite so; it is "attracted" to behavior.
As the statistics bear out, behavior is in some regards "attracted" to color.

African Americans face a number of challenges that contribute to the higher rates of HIV infection.
The greater number of people living with HIV (prevalence) in African American communities and the fact that African Americans tend to have sex with partners of the same race/ethnicity means that they face a greater risk of HIV infection with each new sexual encounter.
African American communities continue to experience higher rates of other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) compared with other racial/ethnic communities in the US. The presence of certain STIs can significantly increase the chance of contracting HIV. Additionally, a person who has both HIV and certain STIs has a greater chance of infecting others with HIV.
The socioeconomic issues associated with poverty, including limited access to high-quality health care, housing, and HIV prevention education, directly and indirectly increase the risk for HIV infection and affect the health of people living with and at risk for HIV infection.
Lack of awareness of HIV status can affect HIV rates in communities. Approximately 1 in 5 adults and adolescents in the US living with HIV are unaware of their HIV status. This translates to approximately 116,750 persons in the African American community. Late diagnosis of HIV infection is common, which creates missed opportunities to obtain early medical care and prevent transmission to others. The sooner an individual is diagnosed and linked to appropriate care, the better the outcome.
Stigma, fear, discrimination, homophobia, and negative perceptions about HIV testing can also place too many African Americans at higher risk. Many at risk for infection fear stigma more than infection and may choose instead to hide their high-risk behavior rather than seek counseling and testing.

'Behavior'....that's all I wanted to hear someone say...it's all about behavior...not color...

Color, ethnicity, has zero to do with it...
I'm just glad someone else realizes that...

It's not a generic 'blck' issue...it's a real behavioral issue...regardless of ones color...

And also...u could place 20 aids free...I repeat 20 aids free males in a room together...and they could hve all the sex they wanted...and there would be no physical consequence...

moral, mental, spiritual, yes, maybe...but aid's wouldn't suddenly sprout up, if it wasn't there to begin with...

So that prooves being gay, as with being 'blck', has nothing to do with aids...

there are only two divisions of people in America - black males in pure ethnicity and everybody else. biracial males (half black mixed with half of another race or composition) can be considered a transition strip in between the two figures but the amount is so negligible by comparison, it's like the indigo color of the rainbow.

in America and Africa and other countries such as the U.K. or Canada, black men are spreading the HIV virus to their partners faster than that of any other race who might be infected. this is due to their rampant sex activity, though in general terms, they don't usually attract women of an average-to-above caliper.
