The government solution is to give more white women AIDS.

It's because we're all racist.

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.

Why Did BuzzFeed & Co. Target Justine Sacco for Online Assassination?


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?


***UPDATE: If you think, for whatever reason, that what happened to Justine Sacco is okay; I'm assuming you won't have any problem with me watching your personal social media accounts, blowing up at Breitbart News what *I* deem offensive, and then, without asking you, contacting your employer and demanding you be fired. Your rules, not mine.

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.)

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.

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.

I recall reading Peter Duesberg’s work that was so controversial about aids being not due to HIV but rather to anal sex and drug use. I still think his epidemiology is good (even though not PC). It fits in with this statistic quite well

I’d hoot at this if it wasn’t so close to the truth.

So our dear black brothers and sisters, why does your society resemble that of alley cats?

If you won’t respect yourselves, who will? (To put it in a worldly way.)

If you have lots of black women sleeping around with lots of black men, meeting on the down-low with black men, it’s a recipe for disaster.

As far as I know, skin colour has zilch to do with AIDS. It’s entirely behaviour. Except, of course, in those cases where the disease is intentionally passed along. I remember a poor young girl dying at the hands of the homosexual dentist. I think her name was Kimberly Bergalis, or something like that.

It’s self racist pity partying. Instead of bragging of how good their race is (like some white people were known to do) they seem to be vying as to how low they can go.

Windy, I know you’ve got excellent morals and are probably puzzled as to why your brethren and sisters of like skin hue have fallen in such great numbers for this kind of lifestyle. Still I know you usually have something pithy to say about this sort of thing, if only “ptui.” The big thing that comes to my mind is “welfare bribery.” While welfare is in principle color blind, it caught more black than white people in its need categories, and it became a vicious circle, engulfing decades of generations in its velvet gloved hell fire. At least as I can see it.

I think that was Mr. Nolte’s point. Out of such a target-rich environment, why did BuzzFeed focus on this particular individual?

I hope some enterprising reporter attempts to follow up on this subject. We’ll see.

I don’t think prostitution is the issue. Many males in the black community are on the “down low” and transmit the disease with unprotected anal sex. The same vectors that spread the disease before. There has been an emphasis on “booty” in black america.

I believe these shockingly high levels of AIDS are a result of the destruction of the American Black Family and caused by means tested welfare, planned parenthood genocide, Murphy Brown culturalism, and Bill ‘It’s only sex’ Clinton.

I attended a corporate head straightening class, back in the day, in which the "moderator" or whoever made the complaint that AIDS was attributed to be of African origin. That's racist.

That is in keeping with their original mission of trying to reduce the "mongrel" races. I wonder could PP be infecting these women?
