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.

Considering that they only make-up 10% or so of the general population, having 33% of any statistical category says a lot.
Here’s the deal:
A woman can get aids through herto sex with an infected man (but not the other way around), or a needle. But not from homo sex with another woman.
A man gets it through homo sex or a needle. Not through hetro sec with a women.
Babies get it from their mother
Unfortunately, yes. =(
Yes. But I think they meant 33 percent of the black males, not of the general population, in that statement. Is that not how you read it?
Excellent tagline by the way!
Rule number one. The Aids rate is directly proportional to promiscuity.
Two homos cannot infect one another unless they have multiple partners of which at least one of them is infected. In the case of your assertion, I would suspect bisexuals, who are extremely promiscuous, carry the virus back and forth among the usual identified groups. Note, we never seem to get statistics on bisexuals. The heterosexual statistics are thrown in there to drag the ordinary dolt into feeling obliged to fund a cure. This will never be offered as useful information in primary school sex education.
You know, God clearly told people how to avoid being stupid. And if people decide to be stupid, they make the decision to be stupid and they should be on their own.
I agree. They are very careful to present statistics in a PC manor. What fools.
Male homosexuals are the #1 vector for the spread of infectious diseases in the country. HIV is one of more than a dozen diseases transmitted by these deviants, and those homosexuals with AIDS, are also the breeding ground for antibiotic resistant organisms. The public health threat of this behavior is a monstrous economic burden to health care in general and all because of a mental derangement now promoted as acceptable.
It is more politically palatable for the liberals to maintain the primary cause is homosexuality because it is an ‘alternative lifestyle’ which allows them to blame government for not taking enough money from hard working Americans to fund ‘aids research’. Blaming the primary mode of transmission on needles isn’t politically defensible - yet. Just give Obama enough time. He’ll find a way to blame you and me for some poor black person sticking a dirty needle in their arm and getting aids...It WILL happen.
Are you suprised with that age range.
76 percent -- of the HIV infected are black, 70 percent are men and 70 percent are age 40 and older
I always thought older gays etc, would know better than this. All the ADs, education, they still haven't learned..disappointing
HIV/AIDS is given the same excuse and mantra for “the problem” as public education - taxpayers not spending enough money to “solve the problem”.
We know that excuse is a lie in both cases.
In one case we have sex addicts and in the other we have an industry - “public education” - addicted to YOUR money - they can never get enough of it, and the more they are given the worse the addiction becomes.
Why, thank you very much.
Effing ridiculous. The truth is that most of this is still due to homosexuals, drug users, and guys in the hood paying for hookers.
“The public health threat of this behavior is a monstrous economic burden to health care in general..”
Yes. The left has two diametrically opposing philosophies depending upon the issue. 1. AIDS is a huge public health care crisis...we like people who contract and spread AIDS. We need more money to promote its transmission and provide care for those who get it. 2. Smoking is a huge health care crisis. We hate people who smoke, or who breathe smoke. We must punish them and exclude them from health care. We need more money to combat it.
But they are consistent, because the common thread is “we need more money”.
George Bush sent $50 billion of our tax dollars to Africa for AIDS!!
(What a nice guy as he retires to his $2 million dollar house with all the trimmings)
That and iv drug use, sharing of needles remains the only way to get AIDS. Very few contract it through blood transfusion, and we all feel for them!!
Matt always has something about an AIDS cure or AIDS on his website. Matt, could you tell us why?
