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.

Dang. I’m all out of tissues.
Women and children hardest hit.
>> “jump-start a new conversation... and build a robust response”
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.
Didn’t your Momma tell what would happen when you played Rump Ranger with a loaded gun?! (rim shot) /lounge lizard
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.
Blackes were the first </i>homo sapiens</i> to contract the disease through buggering monkeys in Africa.
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.
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.
A two-fer. The parasites can say the study is RACIST and HOMOPHOBIC!!
George Zimmerman’s fault.
Do you know what the first symptom of AIDS is?
The downside to the big wiener. Well I guess there had to be one.
They just can’t kill themselves off fast enough. I wish they wouldn’t take so many others along with themselves.
The solution of the First Gay President is the promotion of more homosexuality.
The lowdown is that Barack is on the down=Low. Hey, Michelle, those lips you kiss.. do you know where they have been???
Might have something to do with ‘reach’. LOL
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.
And I’d bet that same demographic has a real strong propensity toward being heroin shooters, which doesn’t help your chances.
No no no. Christianity. The Vatican. The Pope!
Plus --- I just read this yesterday--- Bush 41.
“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.
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, AIDS has always been Reagans fault...
From the early 80s
“Death by boogaloo...”
God forbid anybody should mention the M-word (MORALITY) in this discussion.
Really? Who’da thunk it?
Right you are. What was I thinking? Reagan, the Pope, and probably the Israelis.
I think Obama is one of them.
NO THE REGEAN TAX CUTS
Anal sex with a couple hundred partners every year will do that.
Standard precautions, wear a condom, idiots!
NO THE REGEAN TAX CUTS
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.
