HIV Rates Soar Among Young Black Men

Arthur Touchot, Medill, November 16, 2011

New HIV infections among young black men who have sex with men have increased nearly 50 percent between 2006 and 2009 in the U.S., according to a recent study.

The report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that African-American men had the highest rate of new HIV infections of all groups in 2009. Their rate of infection was more than 2 ½ times that of the next highest groups, Hispanic men and African-American women.

According to the study, new infections among black men who have sex with men aged 13 to 29 increased from 4,400 cases in 2006 to 6,500 cases in 2009. {snip}

The CDC study said reasons for the increase are not fully known, but may include an already high prevalence of HIV among black men who have sex with men, as well as societal factors, such as the stigma of HIV and homosexuality, limited access to health care, and poverty.

    The CDC study said reasons for the increase are not fully known

    The CDC is lying. The cause is fully known. Blacks are purposefully seeking infection because it is a one hundred percent reliable method of getting a high paying free ride in welfare dollars. Women have babies out of wedlock, men go get AIDS.

    How is the “poverty” and “maleducation” of a 13-year old black “man” relevant to his contracting HIV/AIDS? A 13-year old is not a man, he is a seventh grader. And sex with him in almost every state in the union has a fancy legal name: Statutory Rape.

    I work in a prison. Most black males find male sexual partners very acceptable and not just because they’re in prison. It’s a legitimate choice among the race. They’re also are the vast majority of sexual predators with their first preference being young white males of slight build. Then slightly built black males, and then it’s anyone several of them can overpower, preferably white. Anal sex among blacks, either with females or males, provides satisfaction for them.

    Lack of access to health care? Nonsense. When free or locked up, they freely choose with impunity — off taxpayers.

    Every AIDS patient I have ever treated was black. The city is only 7 percent black. We have a large number of gays. I have never treated a White AIDS patient. That means that White gay men have low rates of AIDS.

    —————

    Poverty causes HIV infections? One side of my family is desperately poor. They are laid-off factory workers and miners living in an economically-wrecked rural area. They can barely gas their cars, heat their homes or feed themselves, but they’re too proud to go on government assistance. They have no particular “access to healthcare” beyond aspirin from the grocery store.

    Guess how many of them have HIV? NONE!! What a mystery…

  • AnyPortinaStorm

    Pansexuality. Its definition has been altered lately to mean gender is not a consideration. Its former meaning also included sexual intercourse with children, family members, and other species. Nothing is exempt.

    All you have to do is look at the rape report statistics to know blacks commit the majority of them. And if psychologists were allowed to tell the truth without being fired, I’m sure there is also a larger percentage of black pansexuals.

    So no, I don’t believe the reasons given in this article as to why young black men have a higher rate of HIV. The CDC knows these reasons are bogus as well. But like any government funded institution, they would be fired if they told the truth. This article is just more propaganda shoved down our throats.

  • HH

    “Men” aged 13 to 29???” Since when are those aged 13 through at least 17 “men?” Only a story about blacks, homosexuals or in this case of course, both, could the child victims (though probably perfectly willing “victims”) of pederasts be referred to as men!

  • Kenelm Digby

    So, apparently White homosexuals are no longer the ‘face of HIV’ in the USA.

  • olewhitelady

    Don’t these articles always have the tag at the end about poverty and lack of access to health care? It’s supposed to tell the world that the writer isn’t racist, despite the fact that everything about the piece screams racial differences.

    “This comment is totally false and pure nonsense. No sane person goes around “seeking to get infected ” with the AIDS virus. Some of you posters are insane.”

    What sane people have a 70+% bastardy rate? What sane people vote a $500 million bond issue for “education” they have absolutely no intention or ability to pay back as Detroit has done? What sane people cuts body parts off of infants to make juju or muti? What sane people believes that you can cure AIDS by raping the guts out of newborn babies? What sane people believes that you can cure AIDS with garlic and beet root (like the South African minister of Health)?

    Gay Black Man, you may be right that no “sane persons” would deliberately get AIDS, but who in their right mind believes that most blacks are sane? We are not talking about sane people here, we are talking about most blacks. And collectively they have a completely different logic.

    My all time favorite “who are we to argue with black science” cure for HIV/AIDS: Showering under holy water. Here’s the catch: Men must be completely naked and chained together (slavery imagery, anyone?), while women are allowed to wear crotch area panties, but nothing above the waste.

    It came out of Uganda, IIRC.

    This must be some pretty potent, gender-aware, sharp-visioned and intelligent holy water. It must know that it is only allowed to cure a man’s AIDS if he is completely naked while receiving the touch of the drops, and only allowed to cure a woman’s AIDS if she is wearing nothing more than panties.

  • straightwhiteguy

    @gay black man:

    There are actually gay men called “bug chasers” that seek the HIV/AIDS virus from “gift givers” (infected men) at conversion parties. Not saying its a widely practiced thing, but it happens.

    The CDC study said reasons for the increase are not fully known

    One catastrophic problem of combating HIV is that a person who is HIV-positive and receiving medication is still able to infect other people.

    Let’s see… you give medicine to people who have HIV that prolongs their life, giving those people ample opportunity to spread what they have to others…

    and the CDC is shocked that HIV has increased?

    Blacks are purposefully seeking infection because it is a one hundred percent reliable method of getting a high paying free ride in welfare dollars.

    Full Social Security Disability + meds for a lifetime IF a person ‘gets’ the virus — HIV/AIDS patients are one of the left’s new protected classes, and you can be sure HIV/AIDS patients will never be brought up under obamacare’s death panels.

    But those with the rare CCR5 Delta-32 mutation (1% of the population) will be hunted down and sucked dry to use as a possible cure.

    This is a very serious issue. A large number of these black men infected or not sooner or later will end up having unprotected sex with white women. White men should really be careful who they have sex with and choose as a partner.

    One wonders if there’s more at issue in all this than just

    low IQ. Among pockets of dull whites, one seldom if ever encounters all this odd “voodoo” sort of ideation. It is

    relevant to note that the Catholic Church in Africa has been

    unable for decades and decades to get all manner of bizarre

    ideation removed on an enduring basis from Catholic Churches

    in Africa.

    “Your comments are racially insulting.”

    Your race’s behavior is insulting to humanity.

    “Secondly, the same case could be made in regards to a sizeable number of Whites and other races as well.”

    Yeah, and for Martians, too. Unfortunately we live in real life, where blacks are known to engage in risky (i.e. protection-free) sex at higher rates than other races.

    The bottom line is you aren’t as disciplined. Of course you don’t behave like Whites, only a brainwashed zombie would think otherwise. Why is stuff like this even news?

    You are either new to – or woefully misinformed about – or turning a blind eye to – the phenomenon of “bug chasing” in the gay community. In fact, there ARE quite a few angry or vengeful or disordered gay/bisexual males “in the life” who are aggressively seeking to be infected with the HIV virus – and who subsequently pass this infection on to unsuspecting partners. I know; I treat these bug chasers on a regular basis and the overwhelming majority ARE African-American. If you’re unaware of this phenomenon, I suggest you read “Deadly Bugchasing on the Internet” at BlackPressUSA.com – then start protecting yourself before you, too, end up in my office.

    I thought “limited access to health care” was the best.

    The point of the article, the rapid increase of infections in

    the comparatively short time-period, is alarming. The human

    race is always on the verge of some epidemic. This article

    shows that blacks are, too.

    @ Gay black man

    I admire you for exposing to points of view that may not be pleasant.

    While you do bring up a point that it is expressed in all groups, some groups have higher rates, etc. Simply the fact that it is found among other groups doesn’t discredit an idea. You need to find an underlying cause which in tern you believes disproves any idea possible group dynamics.

    There are some taller women and thus not all women are short. Just because some women are tall does that disprove the “stereotype” that women are short? No. Due to biology, women tend to be smaller then men. You could say no “growth hormone” is the cause not being a women (and further argue that growth hormone is found in both genders). However all I have to say is that men have higher concentrations (another factors play with growth as well). Yet even when finding the “underline cause” that is expressed on both men and women, we still group women as being shorter then men.

    I wouldn’t find it surprising when the belief that eating Albinos will grant magic properties in Africa.

    You may not like the answers here, but that doesn’t make them any less true. I urge you to at least then discover for yourself why these things occur and solve them.

    We could end it. I don’t see why we don’t.

    AIDS/HIV can be EASILY eradicated due to the fact that it relies on a host to survive, but it only transmits through body fluid (the biggest being sex)–which is to say easier then leprosy which can happen due to skin contact.

    How many millions of future of lives will be condemned with HIV/AIDS so that a few hundred thousands may not have some “rights” infringed?

    But then again the human population is already too big (especially in 3rd world populations). Darwinism in action. And finding a cure means a higher birthrate in an already exploding African population that relies on European Aid to survive.

    Things are bleak, but then again, Nature has a way of sorting things out.

    I think you mean well, but this isn’t the proper site for your views. People on here are mostly very angry white peple. They are angry about our race being constantly brutally attacked, and at the rapid deterioration of our countries. User comments vary and can be opinonated, but amren.com mostly speaks the truth. Amren prides itself on facts and statistics, not tired ideology, silly costumes, etc. Your alternative views will never be well-received here. You sound like a decent person, but you cannot deny the facts. Hundreds of thousands of whites are brutally attacked, raped and murdred every year by blacks and by other races. The reverse occurs only rarely. Saying that not all blacks are bad is true, but it hardly helps matters any. If you want a friendly conversation, you need to try another site. This site isn’t the time or place for that. This is a site of activism and awareness for white folks and for victims of violent crime.

    You are trolling the wrong place. Amren is a forum whose members are WELL informed about things like the homosexual lifestyle and agenda. And that includes bug chasers and gift givers.

    A recent poll on this issue among the newly AIDS infected revealed that almost half of them contracted the disease willingly for various reasons. Much of the reasons mentioned was sick fetishism of contracting AIDS but also, monetary reward was high up on the list, especially with blacks. In other words, what I said is 100% true.

    Gays are insane. One only has to look at the bizarre gay events that happen in San Francisco every year where they do this sick stuff out in the open and its captured on camera for all to see (including many children involved and no cops doing anything about it, I notice).

    Part of the problem I suspect is, caring, normal, heterosexual white people, out of compassion, have come up with treatments for AIDS that are probably a cure to the person who adheres tightly to the regimen (suppressing the disease until it sheds over the decades). If you don’t know what that is, try cracking a book from time to time. The result has been breath taking in how sick it is. Gays assuming catching AIDS is no big deal and returning to the extreme behaviors that created the disease (and many more) in the first place. In africa, you can’t even get AIDS drugs anymore. They’ve all been stolen because those jackasses have discovered you can get high smoking them.

    Don’t like any of that? Tough. That’s what you accepted into your life when you decided it was just fine to engage in sodomy. It’s not a sexual orientation, it’s not even a lifestyle choice. It’s degeneracy….behavior designed to degrade the humanity of all involved, and society itself if they can. The person who engages in it, their entire life revolves around other types of degeneracy….drugs, prostitution, AIDS, crime, rape, pedophilia. This is what you do. It’s what you are.

    Which of us is insane? Not me.

    I urge you to turn away from that, for your own good. Don’t believe the marxist nonsense that there is nothing wrong with it. No society that lifted homosexuality up as acceptable behavior did anything except vanish from the earth. There have been no exceptions in history. That should tell you something about the level of toxicity involved.

    Gay Black Man:

    The first sentence of poster 22 is pretty accurate. I . likewise, admire you for making arguments that go agaist the grain, and are not filled with rage and hate against Whites.

    Secondly, although this is a White racialist website, you will find posters that frequently are irrational, rude, go overboard and are often over the top in their comments as you have seen. Eg… posters 18, 22 and to a large degree poster number 27. They do more harm than good.

    The fact is that I have seen your post over the past several months on other related topics here. You strike me as a decent person. Anoyne who has posted on this website regularly knows that you are not a troll despite what some of our more uninformed posters may think.

    That being said, I do not mean to be condesecending, and it obviously your decision, but I do think you may be better served to begin posting on a website where the envirnonment is more racially accepting and inclusive. There may even be more fellow gays that can support your viewpoints. This is really not the place where you will most likely have the sort of conversation you are seeking. Just a thought.

    Gay men especially are drama queens. They love to be the center of attention. AIDS has given millions of them a way to be noticed and catered to. The drugs don’t really cure AIDS. It just keeps them alive and healthy enough to get to the disabilty office, march, demonstrate, go to group therapy where they can whine and complain to their heart’s content, lobby etc.

    During the 19th century romantic period and later, TB was similiar to AIDS in that is was romantic,tragic and let neurotic and psychotic people be the center of attention. TB sufferers were supposed to become better looking, thinner, paler and with redder lips and cheeks. Women TB patients had those tiny waists without need for dieting or corsets. Very fair skin was very fashionable and TB patients were supposed to be pale.

    TB was actually supposed to enhance women’s looks. Ultra slim, tiny waist, white, white skin, red lips and cheeks and preferably black hair, white and pastel dresses. A beautiful wraith/waif was the ideal.

    TB was the fashionable disease of the 19th century. AIDS the fashionable disease of the 20th and 21st centuries. Our Christian heritage of martyrdom is involved as well. So is the macho male brave sufferer we saw in all those war movies shown on TV 2 weeks ago for veteran’s day.

    Some of the more extreme gay men think of it like suffering for the cause. For them, the AIDS clinic is more like a Veteran’s admin hospital. Some of the San Francisco loons want to erect a memorial for victims of AIDS.

    As a scientist, I have read in depth the history and initial research regarding the discovery and testing of AIDS

    I can tell you in truth it is all an utter fraud

    AIDS testing… which is not a test for anything at all NOR is it a confirmation of AIDS … actually responds to certain chain lengths of retrovirus which coincidentally.. is more more commonly found in africans.

    The billions to be made in the testing companies and the aids drugs prevents the science establishment from confronting it

    That is ignorant nonesense. Not all gays are the same ugly stereotype that you assume. Mainstream gays are extremely dissapproving of this destructive behavior, as well as other awful stereotypes that you accuse every gay peson of. If you visit gay blogs you will see significant numbers or political conservativism and even race realism. More than half lean to the left, but the vast majority vehemently condem pedophilia. Go to some of the sites yourself if you don’t believe me.

    I respect everyone’s right to say, yeah, that’s not my thing, or that’s against my religion. That is respectable. I myself don’t care much for gay activies. However, if you make extremely hateful comments about an entire group, based soley on the actions of a few visible radicals, you are severely hurting your own cause. You don’t see low-key, resonable gay people because they simply don’t tell you what they are. They are private and they respect your boundaries. It is a silent majority (or at least a significant percentage).

    In order for AMREN to be successful, you have to court the mainstream. Brutally attacking gays, even if it’s only verbal, will make you appear violent and hysterical. You will never make it with that rap. Liberals judge all white nationalists based on the a deeds of a few isolated extremists. To them, you are all the same person (Hitler, etc). You feel this is offensive and unfair, which is correct. Many of you do the same to gays, and it is killing your cause.

    Gay Black man is probably on the wrong site. However I must say one thing about SS disability and the gravy train. Three years ago I became too sick to work I now receive $784.00 a month, which is taxed after Clinton changed the rules. I can guarantee you I am not living high on the hog. Also it is not welfare as I paid into the fund my whole life. I am 53. As a White person I believe if we would have stayed White we would have a decent safety net for all our fellow Whites.

    Anonymous, I was listening to Jared Taylor on a radio show I guess about two or three years ago. On this particular program he mentioned the fact that American Renaissance has a large considerable Gay membership. Whether you realize it or not, you over the top and yes (homophobic) comments are a deterrent to all the White gay and lesbian women who desire to be a part of our cause.

    Although Gay Black Man is not is obviously not a member of American Reniassance and as some other posters have mentioned to him in their posts, he probably would be better off posting on another site. Nonetheless, he certainly has the right to live his life (all of us do for that matter)as he sees fit.

    Do you honestly beleive that every Gay member of American Renaissance is “immoral” to use your term? Are your comments not

    “irrational,” “rude” and downright “mean sprited” as well?

    To paraphrase poster 34, it is this sort of intolerance and brutal rhetoric that does our movement no good. On the contrary, if reaffirms the widely held viewpoint among many of our detractors (wrongly I would argue ) that we are a bunch of homophobic, misogynistic, bigoted, xenophobic, sexist yahoos deeply immersed with a dark ages mentality.

    Such regressive attitudes only hinder our cause.
