Maybe it will take another 50 years before blacks accept the reality and start getting serious. They are their worst enemy it seems.

Have a safe Xmas.

Founded in May of 1999, the Black AIDS Institute is the only national HIV/AIDS think tank focused exclusively on Black people. The Institute's Mission is to stop the AIDS pandemic in Black communities by engaging and mobilizing Black institutions and individuals in efforts to confront HIV. The Institute interprets public and private sector HIV policies, conducts trainings, offers technical assistance, disseminates information and provides advocacy mobilization from a uniquely and unapologetically Black point of view.

Our motto describes a commitment to self-preservation: "Our People, Our Problem, Our Solution."
