HIV Crisis Hitting African American Women as Infection Rate in Washington DC Doubles

Christine Show, Daily Mail (London), June 21, 2012

HIV infections are on the rise among heterosexual, African-American women with rates of the disease higher in areas of poverty.

The cases of HIV have dramatically grown in Washington, DC with rates doubling to 12 per cent, it has been revealed.

In a study conducted by DC health officials, the 482 people surveyed with HIV were mostly African-American, more than half had incomes of less than $10,000 and 37 per cent were unemployed, news outlets reported.

There are nearly 15,000 people over the age of 12 living in DC with HIV or AIDS, The Washington Post reported.

That is the highest level – at 2.7 per cent – for any city in the United States.

Michael Rhein, senior vice president at the Institute for Public Health Innovation, told the Post that the rates reflect a larger concern.

He said it’s ‘a true increase in the HIV rate among heterosexuals and women living in areas of concentrated poverty.’

Most cities have large concentrations of HIV cases within groups of men who have sex with men and intravenous drug users.

In DC, however, the cases usually involve heterosexual women who are black.

Black women make up 90 per cent of all female cases of HIV in the city.

It’s likely 20 to 30 per cent may be unaware that they’re even infected.

Greg Pappas, senior director at the DC Health Department, told the Post that that percentage of the infected population ‘is probably walking around infected and don’t know it.’

But more people appear to be getting help sooner in the region.

Roughly 76 per cent of infected got treatment in 2010 within the first three months of diagnosis compared with infected people in 2006.

There was also a drop in the number of new cases in DC.

    “HIV infections are on the rise among heterosexual, African-American women with rates of the disease higher in areas of poverty.”

    Time to hit with simple but harsh truth:  Blacks are more sexually impulsive, that is why.  Not all Blacks, and many Blacks can overcome this tendency, as individuals.  There is more HIV amongst Blacks,  because Black women are more impulsive with their sexual decisions, as are Black men (as a whole).   This is because Black women and men have lower future time preference than other races (as a whole).  Evolution over tens of thousands of years in the unpredictable African continent caused future planning to be less selected for (as a whole).

    I wish I did not have to add this “as a whole” all the time.  However, since these people insist on government meddling in racial affairs, judging people by group, it seems we need to as well in return.  I would prefer to allow individual Blacks to escape the pack, and succeed on their own merits.   Since they brought up though, we need to hit them back with the simple, but harsh truth.

    • The__Bobster

      Don’t forget that a lot of their men are on the down-low and bring the disease back to them.

  • Up to my neck in CA

    What ever could the cause of this be?? Racism, poverty, the legacy of slavery, an empty EBT card, White privilege, Sun spots, the Mayans?? How about lack of personal responsibility! BINGO!!!

    • MekongDelta69

      Well Alex, I’m gonna go with… White Privilege for $400.

      • Detroit_WASP

        Since Louis Farah-CON said whitey invented AIDS in a laboratory, it must be whitey’s fault.  Louis wouldn’t lie.

      • You weenie!  You need to be taking White Privilege for a $1,000!

  • AIDS, disease and famine, that’s Gods way ( or  call it natural law )  of population control. We should not intervene to stop it.

  • Oil Can Harry

    90% of women with AIDS are black? Wow, this virus is SO racist.

    The ONLY reason European-Americans have such low infection rates is white skin privilege. Makes me ashamed of my skin color.

  • splitsing

     Still one more reason to teach your children not to mix with bantus.

    • Rocky Bass,

       This is not another reason, there exist an infinite number of reasons, but this one is not necessary.

    • HenryHolliday

      I’m a little ambivalent on that. If our children disregard our warnings and the plain truth in front of their faces, maybe this is the future they deserve, on an individual basis. The great battle we are faced with is to make them understand all this, before America is destroyed.

  • Rocky Bass,

    Don’t get me wrong, I do not deny that blacks engage in many more activities that result in immunologic insult but HIV is not what the HIV test tests for. Every “HIV” test ever made has a package insert that tells prospective users NOT to use the test to confirm or disprove the presence of HIV. These tests, test for anti-bodies to proteins, and glycol-proteins, expressed on the western blot as gp41 or say p17, p24, and seven others, 4 of which have been proven to have absolutely nothing to do with a unique, exogenous entity. Anti bodies have been known now for several years to be somewhat “promiscuous” and to cross react with many other antigens! There are now over 70 conditions that are documented in the medical literature that have been proven to cause false positive results on “HIV” tests, though your clinician will NEVER mention this if you fit a “risk group”.  
    You say you don’t want to catch HIV? Well a scientist named Padain did a study of HIV transmission lasting most of the 90’s. She followed 174 sero discordinate couples for a 10 year period. About half of the couples didn’t use condoms and most of the remainder reported breakages and times where exposure to their partners bodily fluids took place. These couple were a mix of straight and gays, the ratio escapes me, but it’s all online for the curious.
    Want to take a guess at what percentage “caught HIV”?
    Zero, nada, none, not one partner was infected during the study! So what did Padian (making lots of money from AID$ INC) decide to do? She did what any gov funded researcher would do, she made up some numbers and called it a day! I though to plot a line one would at least need a couple points, silly me. According to Padian, the rate of female to male transmission was 1:1000 encounters with known HIV positives. And for Male to Female she picked 1:10000 encounters with known HIV positive partners. 
    These “tests” just pop on a certain percentage of people, my wife has Lupus, this is one of the top ones, but since she is Thai… (and you were wondering why I cared about this topic I bet)
    The idea of testing pregnant women is plain evil as multiple child births has been proven to cause false positives too, placing the mother to be and baby on a regime of BLACK BOX warning label drugs! Black box warning label drugs, are drugs that have killed people by themselves when taken as directed.
    There is a woman in Botswana I send money to in order to help her make by. Onnie, she is an AIDS dissident as well and has written a number of very interesting articles. See “Divorcing the man in the bottle” . She has healed so many AIDS sufferers with FOOD AND WATER, it’s not funny.
    African’s should NEVER take these tests, as malarial exposure, TB exposure, multiple births etc can all cause a false positive result, as well as “sticky blood” (a condition many Africans have and normal).
    African peoples are ALWAYS going to be at greater risk at setting these things off! It’s as though it was designed that way!
    I do not advocate DIRECT GENOCIDE and that is what this is.

    I am with Jared Taylor, all people should be allowed to live and be as a people in their own lands.

      An American black, who tests HIV+ and has a declining CD4 count and eventually dies from an opportunistic disease, doesn’t have AIDS? This is all made up? People in Africa don’t have Slims disease, as they call it?  OK.

      • Rocky Bass,

         This is so much more complex than you seem to realize. A leading virologist once said that he would prefer a coin flip to knowing a patients CD4+ count in the periphery blood. And that AIDS would have happened as soon as there was a  way to count these cells, as the shiny new test MUST mean something right? Do you know your cd4+ count? Guess what, my wife gets blood work done fairly often due to her monitoring of her Lupus and NEVER is her cd4+ mentioned. There is still huge debate about exactly what cd4+ levels in the periphery blood even means. Current indications are that they (cd4+) only function in the lympnodes, so taking these drugs that were never tested to improve clinical health, but to just drive these periphery counts up probably do more harm than good. Also are you aware of a study conducted on the the olympic team during the late 80’s, where it was discovered that half of the elite athletes had counts that would have an HIV+ swallowing fist-fulls of AZT? Low CD4+ means NOTHING. In normal healthy people (the ones they never do this test on really) that level is all over the map in a day, lay out in the sun a couple hours and your could be zero too.
        People do and have always suffered from disease, they always will. In Africa there are so many to chose from and still during the age of AIDS, Sub Saharan populations have more than doubled. This in spite of you continent DEPOPULATING HIV boogy man. The numbers are right where they were predicted to be before anyone ever heard of HIV nonsense.
        The fist to die of “aids” (the definition has been changed like 5 times, and diseases are added and removed at will to make the numbers go up or down) were gay men living the “gay lifestyle” following the gay sexual revolution of the 70’s. It took about 10 years of this behavior to wear themselves down to GRIDS (Gay Related ImmunoDeficiency Syndrone, as it was RIGHTLY first called). These men did more poppers, meth, cocaine and other things than you could shake a stick at! There were gays in the bathhouse scene getting 18 cases of gonorrhea in a year, eating massive doses of antibiotics, taking semen in unintended places in large volumes etc… All very  immunosurpressive behavior.  It was little wonder what was wrong with the Gotlieb 5!
        I am not teaching a bio history class here. nevermind
        If you chose to not inform yourself of the truth, it’s not my fault.

        • IstvanIN

          We are not talking about homosexual men in the 1970s and 1980s. We are talking about heterosexual black women in the 21st century. I find it hard to believe that there is a giant conspiracy and that the AIDS virus, HIV, doesn’t exist. So all those blacks in both the US and Africa are living a fast lane “homosexual like” 1970s lifestyle? Really now?

          There is no GRIDS, there is HIV, which you primarily get from unprotected sex with an infected partner or through intravenous drug use, which is why gay men and blacks are the primary victims. If all gay men disappeared from the earth would “GRIDS” vanish?  No, HIV would still run rampant in the black community.

          Oh, and scientists have seen the virus with electron microscopes.

          • Rocky Bass,

             HERVs, Human endogenous RetroViruses, have you no knowledge of these? The micro-graphs released in 96 or 97 from Germany really showed why they took so long to release them, as they were cellular garbage and nothing resembling a retrovirus in size at all.
            Most everyone has seen those artist’s conceptions a million times. They have NEVER purified HIV.  There are millions of micrographs floating around showing lots of things but no one could tell if they show an HIV viron or a million other possibilities. HIV virons, if they are a Type C or Type D or lentilvirus (as all have alternately been claimed) they should band in a certain place in a sucrose desity gradient, in the desity range of 1.16 gm/ml, but when micro graphing samples from AIDS/GRIDS sufferers nothing but garbage is there.
            Please read and address Padian, African population EXPLOSIONS etc.
            The first GRIDS cases were lifestyle, then came AZT and then other extremely toxic drugs that killed a generation, see Author Ash, Kimberly Bergalis, Ryan White etc… Bergalis never even was touched by her AIDS dentist, it was absolute histaria. Also not that every hemophilliac over 30 was hiv+ (multiple blood transfusions trigger enough antibodies to ring the bell BTW) yet don’t devolve to GRIDS.
            It was a political move to try and convince EVERYONE they were at risk. My brother in law retired from the AirForce a few years ago,we got to talking. He POPPED + back in 86(chromes disease), but an old copsman looked at him and just said “you don’t have this”, sending him on with his career. It’s all based on WHO you are.
            Africans have been having “slims” disease for a VERY long time. There is no money in a standard diarrhea, but relabel it an AIDS diarrhea and your in the AMERICAN MONEY!
            This is such a multifactoral issue I don’t know what to tell you. Look at the evidence and ask yourself if it adds up.
            I know dozens of untreated alleged HIV+ people who are perfectly healthy 20+ years on, and would NEVER take that high dollar poison they call medicine.
            Please for a quick journey up to speed watch
            “House of numbers” or look into the ICC horror where they did research on children that could be termed nothing short of plain old torture!

          • Rocky Bass,

             Also consider that the life expectancy of hemophiliacs more than doubled during the “age of AIDS”. Not one prediction made under the HIV/AIDS hypotheses has ever panned out. NOT ONE! This is usually a sign of a bad theory, unless there are BILLIONS of bux riding on it. When I 1st came into this 11 years or so ago they had already spent $93,000,000,000 on it, they could have been studying HIV on the moon for that. Folks can be pretty ignorant when their livelihoods depend on it.

          • Rocky Bass,

             In Reply to Ni123; The drugs have been reduced in their toxicity over time, and AZT mono-therapy is not used on anyone but pregnant mothers now, supposedly to stop MTCT. These AZT babies were deformed in-utro, during gestation, not after birth, that was never claimed.
            AIDS drugs used to turn people on them into absolute trolls, with buffalo humps big bellies, sunken faces and spindly limbs. Lipodystrophy caused by protease inhibitors was mostly responsible. This story is complex.

        • Dumb it down for me Clyde: Are you saying that the black people in the USA who get tested and get positive for AIDS do NOT have AIDS? Or some do and some dont?  Whatever YOU say,I am still going to look at black females with fear,because i dont know WHAT they got,I just know I dont WANT it!!

  • Francis Galton

    So, D.C. as a whole has an HIV infection rate similar to that of Rwanda (2.8 percent and 25th most infected country in the world).  And, if “heterosexual black women in DC” were a country, it would have about the same HIV infection rate as Mozambique (12.5 percent), the eighth highest in the world.  Incidentally, the seven countries with worse infection rates are ALL in Africa, as are the next fifteen after Rwanda; the Bahamas breaks the trend, coming in at number 24.   

    Hmm, there seems to be a common thread here, no?

  • frmore

    Black women bang guys who bang guys in the hooskow. Genes, immunity and susceptibility also come into play. In the days before penicillin and other antibiotics, our immediate ancestors knew separate drinking fountains and restrooms were a prudent precaution. One out of two black females you see loitering about who are between the age of 15 and 25 is actively infected with either syphilis, chlamydia, gonorrhea, human papillomavirus, herpes or AIDS. It behavior + genetic predisposition. Though the racist lack of access to healthcare is the only balloon floated by the neo-marxists. But at the end of the day, black women bang guys who bang guys in the hooskow. Blacks have their traditions. Whites have family eggnog recipes. 

  • mikejones91

    It’s not that blacks have MORE sex, they just use LESS condoms. Trust me on this one people. As a college student who knows. White women are FAR MORE sexually open (not slutty, just adventurous) than blacks. They scream poverty. Everyone can scrape up 50 cents to buy a loose condom.

        s natural, just like breathing is normal.

  • KenelmDigby

    A 12% infection rate  of any disease, and in particular a lethal dread disease such as HIV – which is entirely preventable with a few elementary precautions – is enormous.
    Let’s not beat about the bush here, we are dealing with a population mired not just in about the lowest form of human degradation possible (how else has it reached those levels?), but profoundly and fatally in-educable. Apparently 30 years of saturation propaganda and publicity has had zero effect in entreating this population to actually respect the one asset that in the final analysis is of any value to them ie their lives.

    Anyway, just wait a few days for reams and reams of columns in the NYT and elsewhere blaming whitey for this. I can picture it now loads and loads of social science big-wigs, with tag-line photos wearing beards and glasses, using loads and loads of big words and pseudo-intellectual ‘arguments’ that strain credibility to the point of ridiculousness (but larded with big words and ‘intellectual phrasing’), saying its all the fault of whitey because, in essence, whitey had the fatal sin of existing in the first place.
    Mark my words.

No other races compare.

  • whiteuncleruckus

    i agree completley. even black men dont want black women. they want white women because white women are an significant upgrade over black women. thats also why they love diversity so much. multiculturalism and diversity bring black men into contact with white women, which is a crime against nature.

        The mismanagement ofAids drugs might lead to new stronger strains of the virus that could speed up death rates. The tuberculosis epidemic brought here by illegal immigrants might also cause HIV infected folks to reach the final destination quicker.

  • The__Bobster

    If the female has open sores, such as those resulting from genital herpes, she can become infected. So what is the herpes infection rate for Bantu females?

    Let’s check:

    WASHINGTON, March 9 (Reuters) – About 16 percent of Americans between the ages of 14 and 49 are infected with genital herpes, making it one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases, U.S. health officials said on Tuesday.

    Black women had the highest rate of infection at 48 percent and women were nearly twice likely as men to be infected, according to an analysis by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    • Mahound

      Moreover, the poor hygienic habits of Bantu people – such as not washing nether regions between sex partners – make even vaginal sex prone to passing on the virus among these folks.

      Another thing is that sex while under the influence of alcohol or drugs cause natural lubrication systems to be weaker which further increases wear and tear I.e. ideal for spreading blood diseases.

  • Kurt Plummer

    The only thing I care about is how much is this going to COST us in medical care and drugs for all these blacks! There goes SSA rolls skyrocketing to where those of us on it now and soon to retire will get cut from all those years of working and paying all these taxes to help all these nonwhite dregs in our society!

    I think it may well be that the best thing about this ‘social revolution’ may be the idea that you get what you need in old age because you need it.  Not because someone somewhere, tallies up your input to a system and says (death board) “No, he’s not paid in enough.  No, we cannot afford that kind of extreme interventionist medical assistance.”

    Not that that isn’t going to happen if we don’t do something, quickly.  But it will force upon us a realization that no slave population (which is what blacks were and whites are becoming) will ever ‘pay in’ to the system what they can and should be able to get back out of it (SSI Ponzi Con).

    Once you reach this conclusion, the next step is the obvious one:  Automation.  Everything from ditch digger labor replacement to build hospitals and old folks homes to house those made sick.  To a deeper level of full ontological AIs that can be turned loose on these questions for which a billion answers may be statistically correct.  But only one is life saving.

    I think humans suffer from a refusal to accept tragedy as what it is: motivation on the path to cure.  If it cannot be fixed before X happens as the life or death of a loved one or enough strangers to trip our denial-breaker, we choose not to acknowledge the problem and just to live through it.

    This is actually a valid defense psychology in that you deal with what you can and then let ‘god’ handle the problems too big to be fixable by someone of your resources.

    It’s also how you have a multicult world of billions living cheek by jowl setting itself up for a contagion risk which makes the Black Death look like peanuts.

    Because just as the -real- hardship (starvation and economic collapse) that happened after the plague took out all the cheap agro labor that made the early Italian city states workable.  So you risk a world model here where the post-white civilization will _not_ be able to support itself because the blacks and to a lesser extent, Americanized Hispanics have little or no knowledge of basic subsistence agro.  And non-farming whites have none at all.

    Set up a society based on automation and this need not be a problem.  Because you can teach machines to think at the speed of petaflops about problems like this and enable other machines to work like dogs, never expecting payment.

    All societies work on a thermodynamic imbalance as something which supercharges the other effectors above it.  And we call that system ‘slavery’ because it is something for nothing.  Where the nothings have been recognized and rewarded as somehow deserving -more- than the rest of us, we must rapidly erect followon, non-human, replacements to make sure we all get something.

    Certainly such a system will destroy capitalism as the elites who vamp all of us.

  • Kurt Plummer

    Are we looking at a new strain of faster spreading HIV?  If not, what social condition has changed to let the infection rate bloom like this or are we simply seeing a case of delayed reporting of an established trend?

    As for HIV among the “Bleck Comoonity” allow me to utter the phrase that Leonard Pitts (and that he IS) used when discussing the horrendous murders of Channon & Christopher. “Cry me a river”. 

    You pay the price for indiscriminate rutting, and downlowing. As you sow so shall you reap.

  • This article is only reporting on the amount of Blacks that have AIDS, what about the percentage of Blacks that have other STDs such as HPV, Genital Herpies, etc. Or the percentage of Male Blacks that have STDs as well. I am willing to bet that at least 6 out of 10 Blacks have an STD. If this is not enough to discourage Whites, Hispanics, and Asians from getting intimate or having a relationship with Blacks then I don’t know what will.

    This is the kind of truth that the MSM needs to make public, and inform our children of the consequences of lying with Blacks. Not doing so is putting peoples health and lives in danger. The MSM is so quick to report on lead paint in Walmart toys from China, why not this?

    I remember reading in the MSM news that ex-convicts are spreading AIDS to their wives and girlfriends. In prison, AIDS is rampant  because of male rape and drug use. The first impulse the ex-con has upon release is to have sex with his female partner. In areas with high crime,  spreading AIDs this way is unavoidable.  As usual, in the end, we pay for the consequences.

    It’s sad. All these women have to do is just sleep with the wrong black man and viole` HIV positive. It doesn’t discriminate.
