Posted on 03/08/2012 9:11:39 PM PST by LucyT
Black women in six major U.S. cities have rates of infection with the AIDS virus that are five times higher than anyone thought, researchers reported on Thursday.
The findings stunned even the researchers doing the work who already knew that the HIV epidemic in the United States is worse among blacks, and that young black women have a special risk.
The fact that the rate for infections in these women is something like the rate in Congo is something that ought to get peoples attention, Dr. Charles Flexner, a clinical pharmacologist and infectious-disease expert at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, who led the study, said in an interview.
Most of these women were not active injection-drug users. The vast majority were heterosexual. Some were trading sex for drugs such as crack, but not all.
A lot of these women are just young, sexually active folks in their teens, 20s, and 30s whose sexual partners are HIV infected and they dont know it, Flexner added. More than 40 percent of the women had no idea whether their sex partners had HIV.

Women of all races account for a quarter of the 50,000 new HIV infections each year in the United States, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. CDC estimates 1.2 million Americans are infected, and that 20 percent of them dont know it. While the study found unexpectedly high rates of infection, the findings would not affect overall estimates about how many people are infected, Flexner said.
And 66 percent of the women newly infected each year are black, even though African-American women represent only 14 percent of the U.S. female population. Nearly one in 30 black women will become infected with HIV in her lifetime, the CDC says.
Most of these women were not active injection-drug users. The vast majority were heterosexual.
A stupid thing to say, since a heterosexual woman is more like to get HIV than a homosexual one - with other factors being equal.
Ana!!y Injected Death Serum (AIDS). Factoid: AIDS was originally called GRID (Gay-Related Immune Deficiency) but was later changed to AIDS.
It’s what the male is doing behind her back that matters, so to speak (And a double entendre, too. Hehehe)
Researchers are STUNED, I tell ya.
These types of reports all tell similar stories.
But all stop short of identifying the real problem and the real solution, because it’s quite un-PC.

My Wisconsin Senator just released a bill highlighting the dangers of single parenthood as it relates to child abuse, of course he is underfire for this,even though everyone knows the dangers of the if it feels good do it lifestyle.
Frankly, I don’t understand why their jaws are dropping. Why would this come as a surprise to the researchers?
Clearly, they need more birth control pills or, better yet, IUDs. That will surely save these women.
An exclusively homosexual women probably has zero chance of HIV infection. A normal hetrosexual women has a low chance of infection. A women who allows some creep to do anal sex to her has a much higher chance of infection just like in the male homosexual community.
Rear end sex causes more damage and chance of cross infection. That is one of many things the media doesn’t talk about.
Gee, I wonder why what is happening in Africa is happening here. Du, I can’t guess...
The statistical principles of thermodynamics might give you a clue if you're of a rationalist bent. Ain't many of those though, I reckon.
Some of these nuts need IEDs in a closed room safely away from anyone else.
Even the youngest girls are imitating their role models like Rhianna, etc.
What is so ‘stunning’ about this?
Why would this come as a surprise to the researchers?
“Why would this come as a surprise to the researchers?”
Might help them to not bed down with half the town, share needles, ect....ect.
Several years ago, I was involved in a very minor accident in which I and another person were cut by the same sharp object. I went through months of testing and waiting (and taking coconut oil, glyceryl monolaurate, and BHT), before I got the all clear for HIV and a few other bloodborne things.
Being a scientist, naturally I read up on the various transmission probabilities (there wasn't a study on fishing accidents....) Anyway, ANAL "sex" was more than an order of magnitude higher than the next act. Really -- end sodomy, and the other methods of HIV transmission are probably not efficient nough to keep the epidemic going.
The inescapable conclusion is that anal sex is rife in the black community. That's why so many of their women are getting it. There's only one answer: repent.
...They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creatorwho is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error
Don’t Be Hatin’.. Aight!
“A normal hetrosexual women has a low chance of infection.”
It’s unfortunate, but the risk of infection from vaginal sex for the female is much higher than for the male, since it is transmuted through the exchange of body fluids.
The results of this study do not surprise me at all, considering that most blacks are not in a monogamous relationships.
They won’t ask the most obvious question....how many were engaging in anal sex??? This according to at least some researchers is why the homosexual community is so hard hit and why the African nations are too. It is (at least in Africa) a common form of ‘birth control’
At the time Obamacare was being pushed through I went to the CDC's website to look at the disease by race breakdown. Blacks, and Hispanics, have higher rates of most diseases than do whites. Blacks are <14% of the population but accounted for 43% of ALL American AIDS cases. The higher rates of diseases in blacks and Hispanics is, IMHO, the reason for Obamacare. So many poor people with diseases that cost a whole lot of money to treat was breaking the bank. The government needed to get all the healthy middle and high income people to pay for their treatment. We're not permitted a say on how people conduct their lives, but they sure want us held responsible to pay for their mistakes.
GRID was first unofficially named WOG (Wrath Of God) by doctors who saw the initial influx of patients.
Primary Cause: many black men are on the down-low, just like our “magic negro” , Bathhouse Barack.
When is the last time you had a HIV test, Moochelle??
I doubt she needs one.... if you know what I mean.
>>...the HIV epidemic in the United States is worse among blacks...<<
Just like the national incarceration rate, the AIDS virus is clearly, unarguably, patently, self-evidently *RACIST*!
How could there *possibly* be any other explanation?
“More than 40 percent of the women had no idea whether their sex partners had HIV.”
This means that 60% of them KNEW, and had sex with them anyway?????
Well. "Some, but not all". That's encouraging.
Somebody tell Sandra Fluke her money problems are solved.
The recently fired Reggie Love might know..
Some were trading crack for drugs, more likely. Hehehe.
Sodomy in prisions...unless Blacks make that abuse stop, they are going to pay the deadly price of homosexuality.
Disturbing article. One would think we are going to see an explosion in pediatric AIDS cases as these infected women have children and pass the virus on to their babies.
1) Sexual revolution
2) Johnson’s great society
3) Gangsta culture
4) Women and recreational sex with gangbangers/excons.
WHAT? Does that mean that more than half KNEW their partners had HIV and had sex anyway????
That anal sex will get you every time.
What’s with the exclamation points?
Sex is starting to sound less and less appealing and desireable.
