Do you agree that it’s a “gay disease” and if so is there a higher proportion of Black Gays relative to Whites and Asians?

"Do you agree that it’s a “gay disease” and if so is there a higher proportion of Black Gays relative to Whites and Asians?

Clearly, I don't think it's a "gay" disease, at least not anymore. But is should be pointed out that according to a piece in the San Francisco Chronicle, dated 3/21/06...

"Since 2001, the city's official estimate has been that each year 1,084 residents become infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. The new estimate is 976 -- 87 percent of them gay men.

So, it's clearly still a problem in the gay community despite over 20 years of ubiquitous HIV awareness campaigns in schools, tv, print and even in movies.

As for your second part, I have no idea if it's higher amongst black homosexuals compared to other ethnic minorities or white gays.
