Poor Black and Hispanic Men Are the Face of H.I.V.

Donald G. McNeil Jr., New York Times, December 5, 2013

The AIDS epidemic in America is rapidly becoming concentrated among poor, young black and Hispanic men who have sex with men.

Despite years of progress in preventing and treating H.I.V. in the middle class, the number of new infections nationwide remains stubbornly stuck at 50,000 a year—more and more of them in these men, who make up less than 1 percent of the population.

Giselle, a homeless 23-year-old transgender woman with cafe-au-lait skin, could be called the new face of the epidemic.

“I tested positive about a year ago,” said Giselle, who was born male but now has a girlish hair spout, wears a T-shirt tight across a feminine chest and identifies herself as a woman. “I don’t know how, exactly. I was homeless. I was escorting. I’ve been raped.”

“Yes, I use condoms,” she added. “But I’m not going to lie. I slip sometimes. Trust me—everyone here who says, ‘I always use condoms’? They don’t always.”

Besides transgender people like Giselle, the affected group includes men who are openly gay, secretly gay or bisexual, and those who consider themselves heterosexual but have had sex with men, willingly or unwillingly, in shelters or prison or for money. {snip}

Nationally, 25 percent of new infections are in black and Hispanic men, and in New York City it is 45 percent, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the city’s health department.

Nationally, when only men under 25 infected through gay sex are counted, 80 percent are black or Hispanic—even though they engage in less high-risk behavior than their white peers.

    Transsexuals, Transgender, Homosexuals, and even Bisexuals don’t actually exist. The reason that people call themselves with these titles is because of Anti-white, Anti-heterosexual, and Anti-family propaganda which is “taught” at universities, high schools, middle schools, and even at some elementary schools (Memorial Spaulding Elementary School for grades K-5 here in Boston has a Gay-Straight Alliance). Who could possibly be behind all of this?

    • IstvanIN

      Huh? Of course there are people born with brains wired for same-sex attraction. There are people born with brains wired to feel they are in the wrong body. I hardly see how these anomalies are “anti-white” titles. Yes, universities seem to be on a anti-white, anti-heterosexual, anti-family agenda, but these poor souls are just pawns in the war.

      • [Guest]

        Which sexual perversions are by choice, though, and which are “wired”?

        • David Ashton

          Prenatal hormone dosage is an unfortunate factor. Some homosexual men have distinctive facial appearances, and some lesbians look boyish or mannish. “Brainsex” by Moir and Jessel is not outdated by recent research and well worth reading. Anal sex, of course, is medically undesirable for several reasons. The “gay lifestyle” is as sad as it is weird and filthy.

          • IstvanIN

            It has to be inborn. The best proof of that is the story about David Reimer. No matter how hard they tried to raise him as a girl he knew he was a boy. Why? Because he was wired to be a boy.

          • Max Krakah

            The story that you relate has nothing to do with sexual preference.

          • IstvanIN

            Yes it does, it shows how much of our behavior or predispositions are innate. Just like people, myself included, who believe blacks, in general, are less intelligent and more prone to violent behavior. It is inborn. A great deal of our talents and abilities and predispositions are determined either in the womb or genetically. I just don’t pick and chose to believe that depending on my personal likes and dislikes.

          • Max Krakah

            It shows how sexual identity can be innate. That is not the same thing as sexual preference.

          • IstvanIN

            If sexual identity is innate, then it goes to say that so would sexual preference would be, too. And it certainly follows that a small percentage of babies would develop atypically. Considering how complex both he human mind and the entire human body is it is amazing how most of us turn out normal.

          • Max Krakah

            Sexual identity is not always innate. It is a developmental stage that some can not complete without the presence of an important male figure.

          • Terra Magnum Imperium

            In regards to homosexual behavior, genes themselves determine a low, average, or high possibility and environment the probability
            When a person reaches a certain threshold resulting from environmental exposure they too will engage in homosexual behaviors.

          • ben no

            No. I disagree. I don’t think its “amazing” that we – most of us – turn out to be normal when we are born despite the human mind and bodies complexity. Just because an awful lot can go wrong with us, well, its more often an onset after birth and through growing up, and even well into adulthood. Not many things can go wrong for us at the time of our birth, especially not when the pregnancy was healthy and with no complications, such as minus the following – aids, sexually-transmitted diseases, cigarettes and alcohol abuse. Those things are self-induced problems that can mess up the unborn children and putting them things aside, there isn’t much to go wrong for us. Gayness is probably a rare, small genetic mutation in the brain of some sort waiting to be found as a faulty gene, and yes, it may well be passed on through genes and perhaps it develops into the faulty gene through puberty as the on set age.

          • Greg Thomas

            Then why was race a central focus of the article?

          • Anna Tree

            Maybe because 72% of the black children don’t have a father in their life. Maybe because blacks think less about long term (instant gratification). Maybe because blacks are more sexual and homosexuals are more promiscuous. Race seems to be a factor.

            Your question makes me think of another point to make. Racialism claims that in many if not most facts, Asian are on one hand, the blacks on the other and the whites in the middle. That blacks have more testosterone and Chinese less. Are there more gay Chinese than black ones, or the contrary? Are white gays numerically in the middle? In Western countries I mean, as maybe in China and Africa, gays are more “in the closet”.

          • kris

            Nonsense. You’re brainwashed with a lot of crap- no offense, I was for a long time. Homosexuality is not an “identity”. We are not, CAN not be “born” gay. Please refrain from casually glossing over flawed reports and read real science.

          • Anna Tree

            If it is hormonal then it can be fixed.

            My biggest problem with all this normalization and special rights is the abuse done to children. Children have the right for a mom and a dad, and better off with a married mom and dad (Please read “Love Isn’t Enough: 5 Reasons Why Same-Sex Marriage Harms Children” by Trayce Hansen.) Check the testimonies of grown up children from gay families like “Same-Sess Parenting: Child Abuse?” by Robert Oscar Lopez and “The sad side of gay parenting” by Dawn Stefanowicz’s.

          • IstvanIN

            Not all birth defects are genetic. Where is the gene for Autism or clinical depression? The cause for every anomaly has not been found. And if the hormonal imbalance was caused during the first trimester then then no amount of hormone therapy would do any good in adult hood.

            Now adoption by gays is an entirely different discussion from the causes of homosexuality. Of course every child deserves a mother and father, married, who respect and like each other and love their children. I am not keen on the whole gay adoption thing myself, just as I am not keen on despising people just because they are gay.

          • Anna Tree

            Yes didn’t say otherwise, it’s why I wrote “and if it is hormonal etc”:
            if this is caused by hormonal or nutrients deficiency or epigenetics or whatever is found by the researchers, then shouldn’t we try to find a treatment?
            It is okay if gays don’t want to be straight but shouldn’t we try
            that future babies don’t have this biological or whatever,
            influence or lack of influence?

            Where did I show a despise for gays?! Please don’t put words in my mouth 😉

          • IstvanIN

            No, I didn’t mean to put words in your mouth, I just meant in general. Sorry if it came off that way. The entire gay adoption and the lesbian artificial insemination things makes me uncomfortable myself. I do not think it is really such a good idea.

          • Anna Tree

            No worries. My opinion on those issues, included homosexuality at all, have much evolved these last years for myself too. I put above a few articles that made me rethink my positions, even for straight single parent’s adoptions.
            I am ready to change my mind with new information and always open minded for rational arguments. And always ready to discuss different issues and learn.

          • IstvanIN

            I have changed my mind over years, somewhat. While I believe that homosexuality as well trans-sexuality are inborn traits, and don’t believe in undue discrimination, same sex adoption, artificial insemination of Lesbians or rent-a-wombs for gay men bothers me. I don’t believe in same-sex marriage. I don’t believe the boy scouts should have to hire gay scout leaders. There are many aspects of the gay agenda I do not agree with, not because I am anti-gay but because I try to think of what is best for society as a whole. It is a tough road to follow because it is such an emotional topic for some many people. I am a WN liberal. The least understood kind of WNs there is. But the simplest explanation for my view: I like living in a free, liberal, open society, were debate is open and allowed, where we can walk the streets without getting shot. And that leave me alone in the wind. Nice chatting with you.

          • BaronBaal

            Just don’t become so open-minded that your brain falls out of your skull…

          • Anna Tree

            You’re not alone in the wind! I am also for a “free”, “open society, where debate is open and allowed, where we can walk the streets without getting shot”. I am not sure about your word liberal, the term is loaded, I don’t know what you meant by it: you wrote free society, so it encompass kind of everything for me.
            I can’t believe homosexuality is inborn as they are not scientific proves that it is yet.

            It was nice chatting with you too 🙂

          • Alexandra1973

            Feeding a child soy does something to the hormones (unless it’s non-GMO AND fermented). Seems to me that if a pregnant woman eats soy, that can damage the baby.

            Vaccines can cause autism as well as food allergies. When my son got his 18-month shots he stopped talking…and he was talking very little as it was, didn’t speak again until he was 4. I started detoxing him and he started improving.

          • David Ashton

            It is possible to hold, as I do most firmly, that all children have the right to a father as well as a mother, preferably married, healthy and of similar race. Some homosexual men have theatrical gifts, and lesbians can make good teachers, but promiscuity is undesirable and child abuse should be prevented and punished with extreme vigour.

          • [Guest]

            Understood. It’s also the case, though, that some butch women and effeminate men have no inclination toward sexual relations with their own sex and that in appearance some homos are prototypes of their sex in appearance. If we associate a genetic attribute (such as facial appearance) too closely with a behavior (such as sodomy), we’ll have to conclude that genetics dictate the behavior. I think there’s more to it than that.

            Regardless, my main interest in this issue of “wiring” is that it can be used to justify not only unnatural sex but any other behavior a person might engage in. As I see it, humans have a natural inclination toward wrongdoing, so for practical purposes the issue isn’t really genetics but restraint, whether it’s enforced by society or is self-imposed or both.

            Thank you for the book suggestion. I’ve read a few sample pages at Amazon.

          • David Ashton

            Agreed.

        • Katherine McChesney

          They’re all by choice. And I feel no sympathy for them at all. It goes with their perversions.

          • IstvanIN

            Yes, they all join up. At 10 or 12 someone says I want to be a homosexual or I think I am in the wrong body. It is a logical, deliberate choice. No possibility of a birth defect there.

          • Max Krakah

            It is not a choice, it is a dysfunction. They have failed to mature and develop normally. The big issue is that they do not separate from their mothers the way a normal health person does. All children initially identify with their mother, at a certain point in development they develop their own identity. A male can not always form a masculine identity, on his own, without a relationship with a father or a mature male. Fathers that are absent, distant, or emotionally unavailable do not help in this very important phase of development. Boys that have an exceptionally timid nature also often withdraw from the male relationship that they need. A mother who is overprotective and coddles the child when he does this will also prevent the child from developing normally, so it is not always the father’s fault. A man who can not be the authority in the house will often give in to the wife in this regard, and become estranged from the child when the child needs him the most. Modern divorce laws that give women too much authority in the home almost guarantee that many more men will become homosexual that otherwise would be the case. Masculinity frightens women, and it will initially frighten the young male child. He has to overcome that to develop his own masculine identity.s

          • IstvanIN

            But what about all the boys who are not gay and raised by single, widowed or divorced mothers? They represent the vast majority of boys from homes without fathers. And then you have boys who are raised in homes with both parents who seem normal in every way and one kid turns out gay? My belief is that something happens in the womb at the time the brain is either masculinized or feminized during the first trimester when testosterone is released . Of course this is way off topic. The human mind is fascinating if nothing else.

          • Max Krakah

            The facts are clear. The incidence of homosexuality is always higher in homes without a male. Sorry, you can not, “but what about” your way around this. My suggestion to you is to recognize that when you hear your thoughts, you hear them spoken in your mother’s voice, not your father’s. You never formed a masculine self identity and this has douse you immeasurable difficulty in life and will lead to an early grave, one way or the other, and even worse still, you will die that way.

          • IstvanIN

            70-75 percent of blacks males are born in female headed households. You mean to tell me 75 percent of black males are homosexual? That is absurd.

          • Max Krakah

            You do not know how to think or reason. Is that because this is a personal emotional issue for you? The facts are clear, fatherlessness causes an increase in the RATES of homosexuality. I am sorry you reject this and refuse to understand it. You offer sophistry in response. Not all fatherless boys will become homosexuals, some are able to still develop a masculine identity. Let it be said though that such identities are usually very misogynistic , and still not healthy.

          • borogirl54

            But from I understand that as adults only about 20% remain transgender. The other 80% conform to their birth sex. This is true in only 1% of those who transition as adults.

          • IstvanIN

            There have been stories about allowing children to pick their “sex” at a very young age. They also have drugs to delay the onset of puberty. It seems the major argument against this is that most young children who think they should be the opposite sex are actually homosexual and that a sex change operation would actually be counterproductive or certainly more harmful. But how many people are in fact transexual, it can not be many, a very tiny percentage of the population to be sure.

          • Anna Tree

            Some children believe they are cats.

            Children are not ‘wise.’ They are immature, inexperienced and in this case, an innocent pawn in a grown-up game. They need to be protected and nurtured, they should be given information, not opinions. The running of the world should be left to adults, who should understand the reason for morality, equality and social systems.

          • Alexandra1973

            I think there’s a possibility that they hear about it, say on the news or at school…and then they start thinking…this might be cool.

          • Max Krakah

            Not by choice, it is a developmental dysfunction. a failure to develop normally. A good book on the subject is a book called “Reparative Therapy” and it is about a theory of the cause of homosexuality and a therapy to correct it. Contrary to what gays say, this therapy has been shown to be very successful, especially if it is done during adolescence, before any sexual activity has taken place. Of course the individual must be motivated as well. For older men, who have lived years in the lifestyle, they must be very motivated. Once the body is conditioned to find pleasure in an activity, it is not easy to undo that. For those who can be reached when they are young though, it is very very successful.

      • Max Krakah

        NO one is born with a brain wired for same sex attraction. The fact that gays who have an identical twin often does not share the same perversion prove this to be so. Humans go through definite stages of development when growing up. Same sex attraction occurs because of a failure to develop normally. it is not a choice of the individual, but it is not organic.

        • IstvanIN

          The whole twin thing can be explained by that period in the first trimester when testosterone is released and how the babies individual brains respond to it. And quite frankly, and I have been around for a long time now, it is frequently possible to tell which kids will be gay at a very young age. Just like you can tell early on which girls will be “girly girls” and which will be more tom-boyish (not gay, just tom-boyish). It is just there.

          • Max Krakah

            I’m sorry you are gay, get help. Stop trying to justify your error with unproved theories.

          • IstvanIN

            Sorry, not gay here. Not particularly threatened either. I find the human mind a fascinating topic.

          • Max Krakah

            sorry, not buying it

          • IstvanIN

            OK.

          • Max Krakah

            the limp wrist reveals itself

          • Anna Tree

            I don’t know what you mean (sorry English is not my first language) but if IstvanIN says he is not gay then he is not. I apologize if you are just kidding.
            I have straight friends, married and happy, who always defend homosexuallity, even when during the boyscout vote one year ago!

            I don’t say IstvanIN is always defending it, but the fact he is here or even if he does it always, doesn’t mean he is gay. I think it is just another dogma of the liberal secular religion, I think IstvanIN just doesn’t know it is, but of course he may disagree with me on this.

          • Anna Tree

            Yes it is.

            IstvanIN, there always have been gays and it was accepted in the past, but only nowadays it is so important to defend and even approve and sometimes promote their lifestyle. Even if no gene has be found, homosexuality is seen as normal and sexual orientation is addressed in our schools! Nudity is illegal, vulgarity is frown upon but it’s okay during gay parades etc etc Double standards and attacks on our values. Blind faith doesn’t always revolve around a god…

            I need scientific proves that indeed there is a gay gene. Until
            then, I cannot accept it being taught to kids or accept the brainwashing we get from the media, Hollywood etc Similarly I wouldn’t accept teaching kids about aliens and crop circles, about god, angels or the paradise. There are no evidence of paradise or aliens, so why homosexuality is taught to my children or accepted as innate when there are still no scientific proves of any gay genes? While the science about racialism is taboo! What science, we don’t believe our lying eyes… Nowadays sex and race are seen as social constructs and whoever disagree is a racist, nazi, anti-gay, bigot, right wing etc.

            Just the fact it is so controversial on the mainstream or in reunions with liberal and good hearted people/friends is a bit suspicious and demanded some research for me, eventually though lol: I needed to realize the lies about another dogma of the secular religion of today to make me reassess my opinions on different issues.

            But sadly, the world didn’t changed, yesterday people ostracized homosexuals and called them sinful, today people ostracize those who believe homosexuality is not natural and call them nazis, yesterday people discriminated against women, today it is against white men, yesterday it was forbidden to say that all races are equal in front of the law and those who did were persecuted/ostracized/demonized, today it is forbidden to say that races have hormonal, intellectual, physical, behavorial etc differences and those who do are also persecuted/ostracized/demonized. etc etc

            Yesterday people fought to have the right to disagree with a mainstream position (rightly) but in the way the principle was misunderstood/forgotten and today people forbid the right of others to disagree with that position that has become mainstream meanwhile. It’s the principle of freedom of speech and thought, even if not mainstream, that has to be respected!!! Not the mainstream position of the moment hold of course as the truth!!! (isn’t is always the case? lol) Such a pity!

            Franklin D. Roosevelt said “The truth is found when men are free to pursue it.”
            Thomas Jefferson said “There is not a truth existing which I fear or wish unknown to the whole world”.

            Nowadays, only mainstream freedom of speech is allowed. In other words, people are entitled to their opinion – if it’s the right opinion. If it’s not, they should be re-educated. Orwell himself couldn’t make up such double-speak.

        • borogirl54

          Explain this to me why would anyone choose to be LGBT when they will get harassed, discriminated against and even murdered because of who they are? Does not make sense to me.

          • Max Krakah

            I never said anyone did chose it.

          • kris

            Harassed?? By whom?? Homosexuals are the most celebrated and coddled group in the USA. Think about that homosexual sports star who got a visit by the PRESIDENT! Such nonsense “discriminated against” Not ONE is discriminated. THEY discriminate.

        • Anna Tree

          Sometimes it is not a choice of the individual, but sometimes it is.

          • Max Krakah

            you could not possibly know that unless you are speaking from personal experience.

          • Anna Tree

            Not my personal experience, but indeed from experience: coincidently, all the gays/bisexuals I knew/know have become it by choice: one was raped as a child and eventually thought he must have trigger something, one was seduced repeatedly and kind of brainwashed (like in “one should try everything” after all, nowadays being gay is normal, so it’s normal to try it at least once, well the other got him drunk…)(that’s in the art world, it’s not the usual general population), one lost in an accident her boyfriend and decided to not love another man (and then after many years went back to be straight, marry and have kids).

            For some time now, there is gay proselytizing in universities and date sites.

          • IstvanIN

            Being raped as a child isn’t a choice. And would seem to me to scare the victim off of same-sex relations, not turn them to it. The whole drunk thing surprises me because it seem to make one less capable of relations and more embarrassed the next day. Even attacking some who is drunk is more rape than brainwashing and less of a conscious choice. The poor girl who went through a devastating situation I could see, being vulnerable and temporarily seeking solace in something different (I feel female and male sexuality are different) but ultimately moved on, whent back to her normal inclination and built a normal life. But you must understand those are anecdotal stories and not necessarily true of all homosexuals. My opinions are based on things I have read, or see on TV, over the years that just seem to make sense. Plus some personal people I have know. Although I have never had the nerve to ask the how or why or when question since I don’t feel that close to the gays I have known.

            Oh and I know nothing of the art world.

          • Anna Tree

            No of course rape is not a choice. But to decide to become a gay was, as the gentleman tried different relationships but couldn’t let go his guilt, maybe his shame. It was hard for him to not share his wound, I don’t know how the women in his life reacted but his past became an obstacle for him so instead of going forward he decided to “embrace” it, he felt more accepted with gays, they didn’t care.
            There is something about belonging to a group, even more a special group, to have a more unique identity, like almost those who look for exotic partners, exotic religions etc

            The drunk thing was after 1 year of courting and about persuasion, like “you see it was nice and nobody cares if you’re gay anyway”.

            Well female bisexuality is that (friendship, solace) and also about more opportunities. For males it’s a lot about opportunities.

            Maybe anecdotal, maybe not. But why do you think the things you have read or watch on TV are not anecdotal too? The thing is, I think you know, the media is biased. Hollywood has an agenda. Politicians are greedy. And a mix.

            Just the fact it is so controversial on the mainstream or in reunions with liberal and good hearted people/friends is a bit suspicious and demanded some research for me, eventually though lol: I needed to realize the lies about another dogma of the secular religion of today to make me reassess my opinions on different issues.

            We have been reeducated. Mother’s Day? Discriminatory! Marriage between a man and a woman? Obsolete! Children needing a mom and a dad? Anti-gay!

          • Max Krakah

            You have known people, but most of what you think you know about others is projection and imagination. Neither you nor I nor anyone else will ever “KNOW” if someone chose to be gay. You simply can not know this.

          • Anna Tree

            Well, it wasn’t imagination (what do you mean by projection?! If I was projecting something, it would be heterosexuality, you are insinuating a lot of thing and I don’t know why) : the woman told me a few times she was a lesbian by choice and the artist one was outspoken that he has been a fulfilled and happy straight man until he was seduced and accepted to try something new. But yes the point is we don’t know for sure about homosexuality, I never said the contrary.

            What I am saying is that if homosexuality is something that is not yet proven by science to be innate, epigenetic, biologic or a disorder etc, that is that we don’t know yet if it is a choice or not, then I cannot accept it being taught to kids or accept the
            brainwashing we get from the media, Hollywood etc I am a rational person and I don’t think we should go with feelings about how the world works and what to teach as being the truth to children.

            Similarly I wouldn’t
            accept teaching kids about aliens and crop circles, about angels or
            the paradise, as there is also no evidence for those. Homosexuality shouldn’t be taught to (my) children or accepted by society as innate when there
            are still no scientific proves of any gay genes. I see that it is as yet another blind faith, another mantra/dogma of the liberal secular religion leading the Western world today. While the science about
            racialism is taboo!

            Nowadays sex and race are seen as social constructs and whoever disagree
            is a racist, nazi, anti-gay, bigot, right wing etc.

          • IstvanIN

            We are so off topic, but interesting none the less. Now why would someone choose to be gay? Now that would be odd. There would certainly be no advantage, and it would seem to go against one’s natural inclinations.

          • Max Krakah

          • Anna Tree

            It’s fashionable nowadays, it’s a life style. So many articles, shows, books, movies about them, this is the new frontier of tolerance, the modern man and woman’s normal sexuality. We are told this by the media/academy/politicians and of course Hollywood like that one should try everything, at least once, that being gay is normal, that gays are cool, that one should be tolerant and accept the different, there is the taboo, the easyness of finding gay sex (there is even a free app called grindr!), the myth that being with a woman is not cheating, there is some gay proselytizing in universities and so much in date sites. Like everything, more it is normal/accepted, more there will be.

            Again, I am not anti-gay, I don’t care what adults do in their bedroom. My objections are about gay parades, gay agenda, gay propaganda in schools, including elementary, the changing of the meanings of words, the attack of family values and most importantly the abuse of children as I think nowadays the rights of gay to adopt is infringing the fundamental right of children to have a mom and a dad.

            How much individual freedom vs. health of a society is the question… In my opinion “radical personal freedom” doesn’t trump every other issue, that be gay adoption or religious dogmas or one full generation deciding to bring children only at age 35+ or mentally ill people on the loose.

    A raging perverted sex drive combined with a low IQ is a recipe for the spread of disease. These creatures should be quarantined, but so long as they spread the disease to each other and don’t impose on the medical system, I don’t care.

    • Whitetrashgang

      If you practice Anal sex you are about 100 times more likely to get a STD, something they will not tell you on MSM because it would be anti gay.

      • NeanderthalDNA

        Blacks and blackified non-white Hispanics have more irresponsible sex. R-style choo choo! Spits out more diseases.

        Simple math. Low IQ = higher breeding frequency = more STDs. AIDS = STD hence Blacks and Hispanics get more AIDS.

    • MBlanc46

      Except, now that we’re aware of this dreadful disparate impact, the elites will find a way to make this our problem.

  • IstvanIN

    Another white/black-brown disparity. Probably because white males are more likely to use condoms than their “diverse” brothers. Black/brown failure seems evident regardless of the socioeconomic group surveyed.

    • borogirl54

      The difference is that white gay males fought the disease by raising money for research and organized groups such as ACT UP to force the government to do something about AIDS. Minorities came on board late due to the condemnation of the homosexual population by the black church and the community.

      • IstvanIN

        Oh come on now. As if White churches loved gays back then. Blacks and browns are simply incompetent. Minorities just get on White coattails.

      • Max Krakah

        The only thing those groups did was to inform the gay male population on the realities of the situation and the risks involved in certain behaviors. The information was given to ALL gays. It was the personal decisions and choices by white gay males, made on a daily basis that made the difference. The continuing high rates of infection amongst blacks, and the much reduced rates of new infections amongst whites just is one more proof of the differences between the races. One race, whites, have a level of function that is above mere impulse. Blacks on the other hand, only function on the level of impulse. No amount of information, even if it somehow is understood by their reduced mental capacity, will affect their behavior. Their behavior is impulse driven, not information driven.

      • [Guest]

        White homosexuals also fought to dissociate the disease (originally called GRID, for Gay-Related Immune Deficiency) from the ones who were getting and spreading the disease—themselves. With the help of the media, they turned AIDS into a supposed equal-opportunity illness that a hemophiliac boy such as Ryan White was just as likely to get through no fault of his own as “gays” were likely to get it through sexual perversion.

        Anyway…

        >>>…condemnation of the homosexual population by the black church and the community…

        I’ve often heard it claimed that blacks are particularly opposed to “gay” activities, but I’ve always assumed that to be part of the propaganda campaign in which black males are characterized as more manly than white men.

        The high AIDS rate among blacks sure is contrary to that propaganda.

  • Let’s see; I am married and have had sex with no woman other than Sayaka for the last 15 years. I’ve never done it with another man and I don’t use drugs. The chances that I will contract HIV seem quite small unless and until it can be contracted by coughing or sneezing.

  • Puggg

    Cry me a river full of the tears cried by toy dogs.

    They know what to do, they know what spreads HIV, they’ve heard of condoms. So they don’t use them, probably more often than they admit here, and then we’re supposed to care that “poor black and Hispanic men are the face of HIV.”

    Don’t tell me your problems, even though I know they’re gonna foot me with the bill.

  • borogirl54

    There is no excuse for this. Why not use condoms? This would solve the problems.

    • MBlanc46

      Well, when they’re not sharing needles, anyway.

    • IstvanIN

      That requires forethought and planning, something blacks and browns are not known for.

  • I am willing to bet the HIV infection rate among black males is much higher. The only time they probably go to the clinic is when the get syphilis or gonorrhea, of which they have very high rates of infection, and of course most of them are never going to say they are down low or gay.

    • IstvanIN

      Actually, it is amazing that HIV infections are so low in the black “community” considering the amount of multiple partners they have.

      • MBlanc46

        And the amount of needle drugs that they use.

      • Mergatroyd

        Remember HIV can stay dormant for up to 10 years and some HIV+ never develop AIDS. Some HIV+ know but continue their sexualy activities anyway.

          So the (effective) idea of quarantine of the infected is just racist “flat earth” rubbish then … let’s extend the life of the infected as long as possible while not denying their “right” to expand the club. That’s progress!

    >>>The AIDS epidemic in America is rapidly becoming concentrated among poor, young black and Hispanic men who have sex with men.

    Interesting, then, that when the “gay marriage” issue was all over the news, we were inundated with articles about how blacks, being the steadfast social conservatives they are, were acting as the nation’s moral compass.

    —Black pastors hit gay marriage

    —Black Pastors Condemn Gay Marriage Rulings

    —How Illinois gay marriage fight pitted Obama against black pastors

    —Black Pastors Go on Radio Against Gay Marriage

    —Black Pastors’ Leadership Defeats Same-Sex Marriage in Illinois

    —Black Pastors Condemn Supreme Court For Ruling on Gay Marriage

    • IstvanIN

      Blacks aren’t conservative, and they certainly have no right to comment on marriage one way or the other since they have the highest illegitimacy rate in the nation. In fact I find it amusing when they comment on any other groups morality considering how low their own group morals are. They aren’t exactly Mormons, are they?

      • [Guest]

        That’s what got me about the so-called conservative news sites that were about to soil their britches in excitement over the opportunity to unite with blacks during the debate on “gay marriage.” They were trumpeting the views of these black pastors as if they were the greatest possible moral authorities.

        In all their failed minority-outreach campaign programs, the Republican Party informs us that blacks and Hispanics are natural social conservatives. Whenever I hear that, I don’t know whether to laugh, cry, or puke.

        • IstvanIN

          White conservatives are always looking for the black messiah. If you have an opinion, why not just state it? Why does it have to be validated by a black? I am against redefining marriage and I don’t care what blacks who simply hates gays think. I have my reasons and that’s that.

    I’ll say what I’ve always thought from the beginning about the AIDS epidemic. Put them all on an island by themselves. Don’t spend any more money on them. None of them are worth anything. Let them stay there and die. If they try to get off the island, shoot them. End of story. No sympathy from me.

    • Mergatroyd

      This is what was done with Lepers…I mean persons with “Hanson’s Disease”… in the old days. Mainly to prevent the spread of infection in the days before antibiotics. Now, even an HIV infection does not exclude one from immigrating to the US, all sanctions have been lifted. Just what we need: Destitute HIV + immigrants to further burden our healthcare system. They will be put first in line and receive treatment before White Americans with any health condition.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    The AIDS epidemic in America is rapidly becoming concentrated among poor, young black and Hispanic men who have sex with men.

    Men having sex with men get AIDS? You don’t say…

    Well, they are just exercising their “constitutional right” to the pursuit of happiness. Free Obamacare will take care of the fallout for them.

    Currently, the lifetime treatment cost of an HIV infection is estimated at $379,668 (in 2010 dollars):

    cdc//gov/hiv/prevention/ongoing/consteffectiveness

    Indeed, the government wants AIDS “to be everyone’s problem.”

    Since the HIV virus appears to be RACIST because it specifically targets blacks and brown men, “even though,” according to the NY Times, “ (young black and Hispanic men) engage in less high-risk behavior than their white peers.” (had to get in a dig at White males, didn’t they.).

    So, in the interests of disparate impact, equality, social justice and fairness and to right this horrible wrong, the government has created a program that will require an equal percentage of straight White males to submit to an injection of the new, mutated, fast-acting, super HIV virus.

    This will help ameliorate this racist injustice, atone for slavery, Jim Crow, Operation Wetback and other sins committed by Whites against “commuities of color.”

        In Greece, people are infecting themselves with AIDS to get government checks and services. How soon before that starts happening here??

        Homicide and theft rates have doubled. HIV rates and heroin use have risen significantly, with about half of new HIV infections being self-inflicted to enable people to receive benefits of €700 per month and faster admission on to drug-substitution programmes.

    • If they are engaging in less “high risk” behavior than their white peers, why do they contract HIV at much higher rates? HIV is a virus; it has know way of telling what color someone is or how much money they make. With this comment, author Donald McNeil Jr. has revealed himself as a blithering idiot.

    Blacks and Hispanics (gay or straight) are stupider on average, thus they take less precautions, thus they catch more diseases, thus they they die more, and if there was no socialism, eventually die off.

    • Mergatroyd

      Darwinism was accepted in academia until Boas and his crew took over the anthropology departments in the U.S. and demanded that Darwinism be discarded for a new theory: “Race is a social construct.” This means that White Americans are fungible; a backwards, 3rd world Africans with a 70 IQ is exactly equivalent to the head of the math department at MIT, and to say otherwise is hate.

    “The troubling demographic shift comes at a time when services for young

    -the above was a comment after the original article….as in the usual blather, not enough money is being thrown at the problem.

    • “Under resourced at all levels of government.”

      This in spite of the fact that every level of government has been assiduously telling the US public for almost 30 years to use condoms during sex and to stop shooting up drugs for much longer than that. How is it that whites and northeast Asians have been able to get the message, while the blacks and browns have not? Don’t tell me it’s that IQ thing again; race is just a social construct, after all. There’s got to be some strange, mysterious, complicated explanation that we could understand if the Department of Health and Human Services would only spend elebenty seben gazillion dollars on yet another contrived nonsense “study”.

      McNeil is either a complete lunatic or a brilliant deadpan humorist.

  • I’ve never known any lesbians very well except one of my friends from elementary through high school, but I’ve also never met a gay guy who wasn’t emotionally unbalanced. One of my old friends is now seven years into a three-to-life sentence for molesting children. He was once a nice guy, and funny, but I have no idea whether he was faking it all. He had relationships with adult women, but stole from me while he was housesitting here. When I returned home from Federal prison in Texas, he had weird pets to which he never paid any attention, and a console video game system he never played. I think these were lures for children: probably boys. Since he had two adult girlfriends that I know of, I suspect this makes him “bisexual”.

    I have no idea what sex the kid he was finally convicted of raping was, but I suspect he went both ways in this respect: little boys and little girls.

    If blacks have the right to comment on marriage and moral sexual behavior, the rest of us have the right to notice your general irresponsibility on this issue and ignore you.

  • Nice post, but you forgot avoiding mudsharks.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    The HIV information is from the WHO (World Health Organization), however the source where I found it posted this:

    “In September 2013, WHO/Europe published “Review of social determinants and the health divide in the WHO European Region”. The report incorrectly states that, in Greece: ‘HIV rates and heroin use have risen significantly, with about half of new HIV infections being self-inflicted to enable people to receive benefits of €700 per month and faster admission on to drug substitution programmes.’

    In fact, what is accurate to say is that slightly more than half of the Greece’s new HIV cases are among those who inject drugs. WHO recognizes that there is no evidence suggesting that deliberate self-infection with HIV goes beyond a few anecdotal cases. The statement is the consequence of an error in the editing of the report, for which WHO apologizes.”

    However, it looks like the Greek suicide information posted by WHO still stands — here is the original press release:

    Case study: countries’ experiences of financial crisis – Greece

    “Suicides rose by 17% between 2007 and 2009 and to 25% in 2010, according to unofficial 2010 data. The Minister of Health reported a further 40% rise in the first half of 2011 compared with the same period in 2010. Suicide attempts have also increased, particularly among people reporting economic distress. Homicide and theft rates have doubled. HIV rates and heroin use have risen significantly, with about half of new HIV infections being self-inflicted to enable people to receive benefits of €700 per month and faster admission on to drug-substitution programmes. Prostitution has also risen, probably as a response to economic hardship. Health care access has declined as hospital budgets have been cut by about 40% and it is estimated that 26 000 public health workers (9100 doctors) will lose their jobs. Further cuts are expected as a result of recent negotiations with the IMF and European Central Bank.”

    Thanks for posting.

  • References to articles in peer-reviewed publications would be nice, but your statement also ignores the “downlow” phenomenon among blacks. Reports like Kinsey’s rely on self-reporting, and blacks seem less likely to “come out of the closet”.
