<quoted text>The last thing I would do is try and defend slutty black crackheads. I know many black women bring Aids on themselves by being promiscous and using drugs, however a large number of women with HIV were nice housewives who got it from the DL husbands. And I don't see where everyone is blaming all gays for AIDS.
How can a large number of Black Housewives get if from their DL Husbands if 46% are single, and 70% babies are born OOW?

You can't have it both ways. You get HIV from not having unprotected sex. There are more HOEs and Housewives in the Black Community. Unfortunately.

According to CDC, for bm living with HIV/AIDS, the most common methods of HIV transmission were:
1. Sexaul contact with other MEN
2. Injection drug use
3. High-risk heterosexual contact

So, the truth is DL brothas are spreading HIV/AID to women from hetrosexsul sex after sleeping with men.

If those woman practiced safe sex. Would that have decreased their chances of catching the disease?

the reason so many men (and women) remain "on the down low" is due to hatred and bigotry in their own family and community

Actually, your inference is not at all the truth. ALL OF THOSE FACTORS CONTRIBUTE. That's why they are ALL listed. Unprotected sex (1 & 3) may lead to HIV. PERIOD!

It says absolutely nowhere in that list from the CDC that gay men are responsible for AIDS in women. That is a correlation that YOU invented due to your own beliefs.

You could just as easily assume from that list that:

Heterosexual unprotected sex is infecting gay men.
Heterosexual unprotected sex is infecting drug users.
Heterosexual unprotected sex is infecting gay men who are infecting drug users.
Heterosexual unprotected sex is infecting drug users who are infecting gay men.

Drug users are infecting heterosexuals.
Drug users are infecting gay men.
Drug users are infecting heterosexuals who are infecting gay men.
Drug users are infecting gay men who are infecting heterosexuals.

The CDC disease vectors do not assess blame. They only list causes. Any unprotected sex involving a man, ANY UNPROTECTED SEX, has the risk of transmitting STDS.

The questions I would like GLAAD to answer is why isn't the organization talking more about homophobia among American Blacks?

The question I would like Barbara W to answer is why isn't she talking about anti-semitism among American Blacks?

Considering that Jews and Gays have been defending rights of African American (and other minority groups), a similar response from African American community is wanted!

Sir you are really on the defense and it makes me think that may be one of these guys who screw multiple men without condoms while out on the town and the go make love to your girl. And it does not matter if a woman is married or not if she is in a committed monogamus relationship with one man then he should not be screwing men or women behind her back.

But, these men still have a responsibility to inform their partners that they are bisexual and I really don't see what's the shame in hiding ones sexuality. If they are guilty, they shouldn't be having sec with other men and risking women's health. Do you think that if more women gave these men anal sex, men wouldn't be on the DL? Or do some men get turned on by seeing another man's hard body and cock?

So, are you blaming women for not having anal sex with their husband? Most of these women's men are on the DL. I personally know 3 married bw whose husband were on the DL and they are divorced. I think these men are very selfish and careless. Should a married woman ask her husband to wear a condom?

you forgot that AIDS first appeared in the States in the gay communities. Can you explain why AIDS first occurred in the gay communities & then spread to hetrosexaul? Gay anal sex is a hot bed for HIV/AIDS! Gay anal sex is dirty and melting pot for HIV/AIDS growth.

My client, who is a nurse( white female, so that no ones thinks BW are spreading lies) told me that most BW, between the ages of 18-35,that are infected with HIV from black men on the downlow. She said that this is a well know fact in the medical community, and that the charts of the patients, states that their infection comes from these downlow men.Sadly, it has become a reality,for black women that date black men to stop being in denial, and pay very close attention. This statement is not for all black men, just the ones who sleep with other men. If any black man is offended, by this clarification, then they are the ones we are talking about

Lies? What lies? Give us an example. Oh yeah, the left will forgive any and all sin, except that of speaking truth and relating facts. No debate or dissension allowed when a person attempts to educate the gay community. Left-wing, control freak nut- jobs want to outlaw salt, transfat, fast-food restaurants, drilling for oil, mining for coal, cigarettes, etc…. but mention how gay bathhouses spread disease and death, and the shrieks of outrage will burst your frigging eardrums. This, despite the fact that STD’s, HIV, and AIDS cost taxpayers far more than over salting food! Oh yeah, the persistent, whiney, squeaky wheel gets the government subsidized disability checks and free medication for diseases and disability which are 100% preventable.

GLAAD needs to just shut up with erroneously harassing people and own up to the reality of the situation before they do anything else to further discredit their already long disreputable reputation, not to mention get slapped with lawsuits for libel, slander, conspiracy to deprive and perhaps even character assassination by Mr. Hughley and Mrs. Sheperd as they, the GLAAD, SHOULD have been well aware of the practice and prevalence of occurrence:

sexual contact with other men does NOT mean "DL", they're talking about full homos. Bisexual BM are less than 2% of the population, and only a small fraction of those are HIV positive. You simply don't have the numbers to account for the high HIV rate among AAW - which sits at around 90,000. But we have over 300,000 black prostitutes and IV drug users. This is where their HIV is coming from. But again AAW will never take responsibility. And that's why there's no future for you.
