This is an insult and racial slur to Black men and women! How dare 'HIV Activists" target the Black community and slur us all with the HIV insult. These homosexuals need to have a concert with George Michael and Rosie O'Donnell and target the REAL cause of HIV. Give them port-a-potties with glory holes. We know the homo-industry is spreading that stuff around into the Black community to get mo' money for themselves. They thinkin' they be get Obama to give them a trillion dollars more for free drugs. This an outrage. Who my Congressman and County Mayour? What? A gay Jewish man and woman? Oh no!

it will not be a safe day in the park on that day. at least the rest of the area will be "hip-hop" free.
Just have the paddy wagon ready to haul the "hip"hoppers" off to their 2nd home (jail) after they start shooting each other and selling their crack.

People try to read a little more. The truth is that YES, HIV/AIDS is a huge issue in the Black community, like it or not. The same in gay men, Latino and White men that cheat on their wives with other women and MEN, older men and women that think they can't get HIV... is an issue for the WHOLE community. Why is an article about HIV testing so threatening? Kudos to anyone working to stop HIV. It is not an easy job, as they have to deal with people like "promoter" and other on this threat.

The SS needs to do a better job explaining the facts to the public. This "free testing" has nothing to do with public health but rather getting minorities tested so they will be placed in the government database. The law requires those testing HIV positive to have the identies verified and once in that database - say goodbye to your life and confidentiality. The law requires those to be tested to give ID. If you want to know if you could be positive - go spend the $70 in CVS and get the test. It is completely anomyous. Then you can decide what to do and not have the government official tell you what to do. SS please give all the facts - I understand your job is to give a slanted view as required by the big corporate elites - but really try to have a heart for poor minorities - its racist. The SS person who deletes this post will have much bad karma.

Real news!
Please give out free condoms so they don't breed others and spread HIV, STD's etc.

Maybe they have another concert at the "Cricket Staduim" and we can get the County Commission to sing, We are World. Thanks for warning to stay as far away from Mills Pond on that day.

PS Please ask the attendees to pick-up their own trash to help out the county with the expense. Alot trash barrels needed. That will be the day !
