In the United States, African American men and women continue to be disproportionately affected by HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases noted in a statement issued to coincide with the 9th annual National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day on February 7.
According to Dr. Anthony Fauci, African Americans make up 12 percent of the U.S. population but account for nearly half of all new HIV infections and almost half of all Americans living with HIV.
According to federal health officials from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2006, more new HIV infections occurred among young black men who have sex with men than in any other segment of the U.S. population. That same year, black women acquired new HIV infections at 15 times the rate of white women.
In Washington, DC, alone, 1 in 20 residents is living with HIV - roughly the same proportion of people as in the sub-Saharan region of Africa, according to Fauci, and 1 in 50 DC residents has AIDS. "These shocking statistics would be tragic anywhere but are particularly inexcusable in a wealthy country such as the United States," he said.

He seems to be implying that the AIDS “epidemic” would end if only the evil rich people would spread their wealth around.
Don’t tell me, let me guess: WHITEY’S FAULT!
Maybe blacks use needles more than others??

WASHINGTON An estimated 325,000 U.S. children age 17 or younger are prostitutes, performers in pornographic videos or have otherwise fallen victim to "commercial sexual exploitation," University of Pennsylvania researchers will report Monday.
Their 3-year, $400,000 study is based on research in 17 cities. The work includes interviews with 200 child victims, most already in the legal system, and more than 800 state, federal and local officials. Experts on juvenile law say it is the deepest investigation yet into the extent of the problem. There are 72 million children age 17 or younger in the USA.
"The depth of the problem almost took my breath away at times," says Richard Estes, a professor of social work at Penn and one of the report's co-authors.
Among the findings:
The largest group, about 122,000, is made up of children who have run away from home and turned to prostitution or pornography to get money for food or drugs.
The second-largest group, about 73,000, is made up of children who live at home and are used by family or friends in exchange for money, food, drugs or other benefits.
The third-largest group, about 52,000, is made up of "throwaway" children who have been abandoned by parents or guardians and turned to the sex trade to survive.
About 90% of the children are born in the USA. The research by Estes and Neil Weiner of Penn's Center for the Study of Youth Policy was funded by grants from the Department of Justice, the W.T. Grant Foundation, the Fund for Nonviolence and Penn's Research Foundation.
Previously, there were few estimates of the number of children involved in the nation's illegal commercial sex trade.
"This looks like it's the most comprehensive study yet," says Eva Klain of the American Bar Association Center on Children and the Law.
CWA touched on the Sex Slave Trade (hardly a MSM voice!)http://www.cwfa.org/articledisplay.asp?id=6393&department=CWA&categoryid=pornography
FBI "Innocence Lost"<
>FBI estimates over 100,000 US children are currently being prostituted *by force* across the United States (either by relatives or as the result of a kidnapping); while the Sex-Slave and Human Trafficking divisions estimate that 15K to 20K more young women and children are brought *into* the US every year from outside the country (either abducted or come in under false promises) and forced into the sex-slave business.
100,000 by the FBI's last estimate. 78,000 by an independent estimate. These are the ones that are FORCED into prostitution; not runaways, not tossed away children, but FORCED, with ages raging from 9 to 19 being the average.
This doesn't include the very little children (kids under the age of 9) who are exploited by the sickos in their own home.
And who’s fault is that?
REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER SENTENCED TO LIFE IMPRISONMENT FOR CHILD PORNOGRAPHY VIOLATIONS
This will horrify you:
Moore admitted to running a file server with approximately 7,000-8,000 images of child pornography. Approximately 5,000 of the images involved children under the age of 12 engaged in sexual activity - including bondage. These included many images of little girls being raped by adults. One image shows a little girl approximately age 6 wearing a dog collar lying on her back on a bed while crying with her arm across her eyes as an adult man rapes her. Another shows the vaginal area of a baby girl - approximately toddler age on a diaper with her legs spread apart and the photograph focuses on her genital area. Other still images show sexual activity ranging from young girls performing oral sex on adult men, to men penetrating babies vaginas with their fingers, and vaginal penetration of young girls, including toddlers, by adult male penises. Other images included still images of young girls (preschool age) being raped by adult males. One video file in Moores collection, with a run time of approximately one minute and 42 seconds, bears a title suggesting the rape of a three-year-old child. The video shows an adult male penis raping a very young little girl.
7,000 - 8,000 pictures....
How many children destroyed?
Yes, you are correct. There are plenty of folks who engage in very dangerous behavior with no thought to the consequences. For them, I have very little compassion.
My point is that not everyone who comes down with this did so by willingly embracing high-risk behavior.
Drug users and homosexuality are the highest risk, by far, and the largest contributors. I'm just hoping folks don't broad brush all those who suffer with this disease. It's grossly unfair.
” 100,000 by the FBI’s last estimate. 78,000 by an independent estimate. These are the ones that are FORCED into prostitution; not runaways, not tossed away children, but FORCED, with ages raging from 9 to 19 being the average.

<<Yes, staggering. Sad, but thanks for posting. It is such a big problem, what is being done about this? by what oranizations?
You are correct, I don’t broad brush...
On the local level, more and more cities are adopting special units to target child traffickers and pimps). They are also trying implement stronger sentences for the johns that engage them.
There are also not for profit organizations that work to get the girls acclimated to life outside of "the life", including Children Of The Night and Gems-girls.org.
We haven't even covered boy prostitutes!
PEDOPHILIA EXPERT UNCOVERS ROOT OF BURGEONING BOY PROSTITUTION
NEW YORK, June 9, 2000 (LSN.ca) - Dr. Judith Reisman, the one who uncovered the truth behind the fraudulent sex-data of the infamous sex-researcher Alfred Kinsey, reported recently on the situation of young male prostitution. Quoting sources, Reisman notes that the number of boys in prostitution in America is roughly half a million. One source notes that "boy prostitutes in Times Square outnumber female hookers five to one." Dr. Reisman asks "Why is the American public largely unaware that roughly 500,000 boys sell street sex to adult males of this great nation?"
Dr. Reisman relates this boy prostitution prevalence to the promotion of homosexuality among the young and the absence of media and other coverage on "inter-gay violence". Dr. Reisman points out that a recent report from Seventeen magazine claims that 54% of teens polled in 1999 (versus 17% polled in 1991) now find homosexuality admissible: "Teens today are likely to experiment: 21% ... have fantasized about fooling around with someone of the same sex - and 15% say they have actually done so." Dr. Reisman says that "establishment media and sex educators in the classroom both vigorously promote juvenile homosexual experimentation while suppressing the darker data on inter-gay violence - data on men and boys battered and killed by sex clients, pickups, prostitutes and 'lovers'".
As examples of this suppression, Dr. Reisman points out that while news of the heterosexual killers of Matthew Shepard and Barry Winchell were trumpeted in the news, "the barbaric murder of 13-year-old Jesse Dirkhising by two trusted homosexual friends of Jesse's mother" was covered up. Other cases cited by Reisman include "the rape and decapitation of Adam Walsh, carried out by two homosexual 'lovers'", and "the castration of a Tacoma, Wash., boy a few years ago by a paroled homosexual child rapist.

As the mother of two sons, I am equally concerned for them!
One day, my children will understand why I am so protective over them....
As mother of 2 boys and a girl, I am concerned for all of them all the time!
It still doesn’t answer what I questioned.
“I doubt that American kidnapping and sex slavery of 11, 12 and 13 year old girls is what drives AIDs.”
Read further down on the thread. The same thing happens to young boys....
Take the exact same scenario, put young boys in instead of young girls.
Who goes after young male prostitutes?
Yeah, it's ugly...
You didn’t even read the article, you just wanted to hijack the thread.
“I doubt that American kidnapping and sex slavery of 11, 12 and 13 year old girls is what drives AIDs.”
“the people who get aids all out of proportion to the rest of society are the gays.”
or bisexuals -the guys are taking it back to the women.
One article posted here about a year ago seemed to tie it to incarceration - that they were catching the virus in jail and then upon release were taking it home to their women.
guess what it’s like that in Africa too
Urban Blacks are disproportionately promiscuous and drug users. They promote aids by with a failed culture. In Darwinian speak, they have become unfit and are failing to survive
