Live... die... who cares?

More to the point... who doesn't? OTOH, some people wanna just pretend it's not happening...

• By 1994, AIDS had become the No. 1 killer of all African-Americans ages 25 to 44. The virus was 16 times as common in black women as in their white counterparts — and the gap would widen over the next few years.

• Last year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, using the first comprehensive national estimates of lifetime risk of H.I.V. for several key populations, predicted that if current rates continue, one in two African-American gay and bisexual men will be infected with the virus.

• That compares with a lifetime risk of one in 99 for all Americans and one in 11 for white gay and bisexual men.

Shhhhh - we don't talk about this anymore because it exposed the failed AIDS narratives the GLBT spread back in the "crisis" days - that AIDS is not just a gay deisease that it's EVERYBODY's disease - virtually flooding us with all the BS we could navigate before drowning, Well 20 yrs later where are we? 50% of black gays are infected and Africa is basket case with over 2/3 of the population infected.

But we must be quiet because the GLBT got the access to political power they sought with the sympathy bid, now we don't need to be reminding people about the filthy baggage this new power block brings with it.

funny that the only other place on earth with such shocking rates of infection is, wait for it... sub-saharan africa.

what would a statistician say?

Dunno what a statistician would say but a social anthropologist would say that the spread of the disease is effected by cultural advancement and personal IQ levels

"bill e says... cultural advancement and personal IQ levels"

from the article...

"In fact, the African-American community was largely in denial about the fact that H.I.V./AIDS was a black issue. Worse, most believed the disease was a conspiracy on the part of the federal government to kill off the race."
