Men having sex with men has remained the disease's leading mode of transmission.
Heterosexual sex was the principal mode of transmission for blacks with the disease, 33 percent. Men having sex with men was the chief mode of transmission for white residents, 78 percent; and Latinos, 49 percent. Black women represent more than a quarter of HIV cases in the District, and most, about 58 percent, were infected through heterosexual sex. About a quarter of black women were infected through drug use.

Imagine so much concern about for a fatal disease transmitted primarily by homosexual sex and dirty needle sharing by adicts, and so much compassion for the afflicted, and contrast that with the virulent hatred and bile expressed for those who smoke cigarettes, or eat fast food.
It boggles the mind.
None of this i surprising to me...
I’m confused - I thought that linking to the WaPo was not permitted on FR at all??
Happy to learn that I was mistaken
Holy you know what!
Political correctness to the extreme. In the statistics, “homosexual contact” is the least cause (0.5%) of HIV/AID spread. “Men having sex with men” is the biggest cause (36%)
I heard years ago that the AIDs virus in Africa spread through heterosexuals who practice anal “sex”. Might that explain it? There should not be a difference between black and white infections unless there is a difference in behavior, maybe drugs, maybe something to do with “sexual” aberrations.
Of course we know it is the fault of Bush and the vast white right wing conspiracy. (sarcasm)
Generations of inbred Democrats governed by generations of inbred Democrats, drawing wealth from the hinterlands while producing nothing. And now they’re killing themselves and each other.
“Im confused - I thought that linking to the WaPo was not permitted on FR at all??”
I don’t know. Hope I didn’t do a faux pas. Basically, the paper isn’t much worth reading, though.
“Actually, it states “Heterosexual sex was the principal mode of transmission for blacks with the disease, 33 percent.”
By golly, you’re right. I got carried away. Still, the statement doesn’t make sense. 33 percent isn’t a big number.
Just imagine what that is doing to the hospitals in DC.
There is nothing the government or anyone can do to stop the spread of HIV. The only ones in control of it are those who have gay sex. HIV has been around for a long time now, WE ALL know the dangers of gay sex, but yet, they're out there, still having it, unprotected.
I wonder if Barney Frank is among the 3 percent.
I read the comment at the WaPo site, there are still some there that blame Reagan.
Hard to believe that Reagan can reach out from the grave and make gay black men have buttsex.
"Men having sex with men has remained the disease's leading mode of transmission."
33% is the hetero number.
" Black women represent more than a quarter of HIV cases in the District, and most, about 58 percent, were infected through heterosexual sex."
So not only do we have black men having sex with other black men, they also have sex with black women, UNPROTECTED, on both sides.
Men having sex w/ other men, then going home and having sex with their wives/ girlfriends.
It is incredible how easy it would be for this disease to become extinct. Yet those who transmit it among one another, gleefully, want political measures in place to guarantee it’s unfettered proliferation. Can the left be more stupid?
