Report finds black gay males in US worst hit by HIV-AIDS
AFP ^ | July 18, 2012 | Robert MacPherson

Posted on 07/18/2012 4:23:43 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

HIV-AIDS is affecting black gay men in the United States on a scale unseen among any other group in the developed world, said a report issued Wednesday ahead of the International AIDS Conference.

So grave is the crisis that in some US cities, one in two black men who have sex with other men are HIV positive, according to the report from the Black AIDS Institute, the only national HIV-AIDS think tank focusing on African Americans.

"AIDS in America is a black disease, no matter how you look at it," its president and chief executive Phill Wilson, who is himself HIV positive, said ahead of Sunday's opening of the six-day global conference.

"The best lens through which to figure out what AIDS looks like in America is to look at AIDS in black America," he said in an interview, adding that it was time to "jump-start a new conversation... and build a robust response" to the crisis.

One of the many dishonesties of the media is the level of homosexuality and sexual activity among blacks. Blacks contract and spread all sexually transmitted diseases at rates far higher than others. It not just HIV. It is all sexually transmitted diseases.

>> “jump-start a new conversation... and build a robust response”

Yeah. Riiight.

But only if that “robust dialog” includes promises of More Money.

See what a warm welcome you get if you suggest that step 1 might be to stop back-hoeing for mud bunnies.

Using the CDC stats for the State of Georgia we could eliminate AIDs completely if we focused all of our anti-AIDs money/&c. into a 4 square block area of downtown Atlanta.

And, yes, those are all black homeless men who live there.

I’m glad that the truth is finally coming out.

(Ironically, there is no equal “female with AIDs” stat for that area to balance out the men.... Hmm... wonder how that could be...)

Wow! I don’t doubt you, but I would like to see the source for that “4 square block” quote, and be able to replicate it elsewhere.

Oh, boy - I’ll go a-looking. I remember that from when my wife was getting her NP degree at Emory and had to do a research paper on AIDs in GA.

Will look.

I must live in a sheltered world because I rarely see any noticeably gay black men. Except for yesterday. I noticed a black fellow walking three well groomed dogs trotting in sequence back to his car from the pet store and commented to him how well trained they appeared. He replied in the most flaming lisp I’ve every heard, “Thank-you tho much”.

This is the result of liberal welfare policies which took fathers out of black families.

Too bad for folks that have it, particularly those who didn’t invite it. But I honestly wouldn’t spend a nickel on AIDS. My wife and I took an AIDS vaccine that they offer down at our church.

NO. It’s an idiot disease. With all the knowledge and warnings out there, only an idiots put themselves at risk for this totally avoidable HIV. Mr. Wilson is an idiot.

I could have told them taht without a poll.

I could also add that they are giving it free of charge to any black or white woman stupid enough to be free with their sexual pleasures to bi-sexuals.

Ladies when you lay down with a stranger you better be sure you don’t rise up with fleas.

Much of it comes from black men who have sex with other men while incarcerated. They don’t consider that as “gay” sex, just sex. I have heard that opinion expressed more than once.

No joke. The one-in-a-billion happening can hit anybody at any time, but NOT doing the illicit sex with strangers and NOT shooting drugs radically drops your chances of getting HIV.

Back in the 80s and early 90s, the liberal media was grabbing any hetero non-druggie they could with AIDS to say, "See!! See!! Anybody can get it!!!" That dog just won't hunt.
