The New York Times
The rate of AIDS among black women is 27 times the rate among white women.

The government solution is to give more white women AIDS.
Or is it Bush's fault?
No, wait, that's not it. It's REAGAN'S fault...
Or maybe it's because of global warming?
27x is a stunning number.
So is the one in five for NYC black males aged 40 to 49.
NYC must be atypical... I hope.
No, wait, I’ve got it, AIDS is racist!!!
Oh man, I didn’t realize even the NYT was racist...
Friday night, a young New York-based communications director had her life destroyed on social media while she was out of touch with the world and could not defend herself. Justine Sacco was on a flight to Africa and had no Internet access when BuzzFeed's Andrew Kaczynski apparently got the ball rolling by tweeting out to his 100k-plus followers that Sacco was responsible for what "may be the worst tweet of all time." By the time she stepped off her flight, Sacco found herself a national pariah and fired from her job. Here's the tweet that caused it all:
At the time of that tweet, Sacco had fewer than 200 followers (she has since deleted her account). And while in an airplane blissfully unaware that Buzzfeed and Co. had dispatched its flying monkeys against her, hashtags devoted to Sacco's destruction climbed to the top spot on Twitter, her employer InterActiveCorp released a statement condemning her (and later fired her), and there were literally hundreds of articles and blog posts on the subject -- including The New York Times, the left-wing BuzzFeed (naturally), The New York Daily News, The Hollywood Reporter, and, well, you get the idea.
Other than the very sad fact that a lot of bitter people obviously had nothing they would rather do on the last Friday night before Christmas, why did this happen?
Less sex with multiple partners among the black population would cut the rate. How many of these women who contract HIV are prostitutes?
Not only that, but it's caused by racist Republican refusal to fund pre-school day care and free breakfast, lunch, and dinner for poor, innocent little children who will be killed by Glock AK-47 high-powered sniper weapons of mass destruction with ultra-high capacity invisible magazines the gun lobby sells in the ghetto because of white fundamentalist Christian racism.
(I sure hope I didn't leave anything out.)
“Justine Sacco had a great point.”
is it just me, or has just about everyone who has been fired or suspended lately been factually correct?
Planned Parenthood gives a booklet away about HIV-AIDS that tells those with it that they can still sleep around and not tell their partner about their disease. That their right to sex trumps the other persons right to know about a deadly disease.
Taxpayer dollars at work
“No, wait, Ive got it, AIDS is racist!”
No, WHITE WOMEN are racist or they would have AIDS as much as black women in order to show support for black women - so both would be equal.
How many stupid and offensive posts did Andrew read through to find that one?
That Tweet, however cruel it may be, cuts to the core of the issue. It obviously struck a raw nerve of the third rail!
Even the damn virus is racist
..despite Bloomy giving out condoms by the truckload..
Or IV drug users?
Aren’t they usually one and the same?
