The higher estimate is based on data from 19 states and large cities that have been extrapolated to the nation as a whole.

I'll be convinced when we have real data, thanks.

Hope the following, from the National Minority AIDS Council, are extrapolated statistics, too, but am afraid their numbers might be close to the truth...

Blacks in America are 13 percent of the U.S. population, but they represent more than 50 percent of all new HIV/AIDS diagnoses.

In the United States, more than 1 million people have HIV and more than 500,000 people have died from AIDS-related illnesses.

More than 500,000 blacks in America have HIV, and more than 200,000 have died from AIDS-related illnesses. In other words, about half of HIV infections and about half of AIDS deaths are among blacks in America.

Also, there’s this from the US Centers for Disease Control at
http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/topics/msm/index.htm
“MSM made up more than two thirds (68%) of all men living with HIV in 2005, even though only about 5% to 7% of men in the United States reported having sex with other men.
“In a 2005 study of 5 large US cities, 46% of African American MSM were HIV-postitive.”

This figure is probably just as accurate as the UN AIDS estimates for Africa.

...and so the shakedown for Hillary’s billions start. Yes, she will buy the gay vote - 50 billion for “aids activists” (read dems) to tell each other about safe sex ( ummmmm, use a condom - for those who want to save a few billion).

As a buddy of mine pointed out to me today, liberals would be apoplectic if I was as careless with my guns as homosexuals are with their “guns”. I guess the only solution to the problem is to elect Hillary.
