CDC: Black HIV Cases Twice Whites; Lack of Condom Use Blamed

Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner, March 25, 2015

In a startling trend that the administration is trying to reverse with a new PR campaign, HIV infection in gay and bisexual black men age 13-24 is more than twice that of young whites and Latinos, according to a new federal report.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention‘s latest figures show that 4,800 young blacks were infected with HIV in 2010. It was under 2,000 each for young whites and Latinos.

What’s more, blacks of all ages nearly equalled the HIV rate of whites in the newly-released 2010 statistics despite whites outnumbering blacks in the population 77 percent to 13 percent. CDC said that there were 10,600 new HIV infections among African American gay and bisexual men compared to 11,200 for whites and 6,700 for Hispanics.

It gets worse when those diagnosed for AIDS and HIV are accounted for, said the CDC Report. In 2012:

• Blacks accounted for the largest estimated number and percentage of diagnoses of HIV infection (11,957, 39 percent), followed by whites (10,069, 33 percent), and Hispanics/Latinos (7,057, 23 percent).

• Among gay and bisexual men in 2012, African Americans accounted for the highest estimated number and percentage of persons with diagnosed HIV infection ever classified as stage 3 (AIDS) (6,010, 40 percent), followed by whites (4,734, 32 percent) and Hispanics/ Latinos (3,289, 22 percent).

“Gay and bisexual men in 19 U.S.cities and the District of Columbia showed a 19 percent increase in self-reported sex without condoms in HIV-positive African American gay and bisexual men—from 47 percent in 2005 to 56 percent in 2011,” said CDC.

        I wonder if black gays rape as much as their straight bros

        • John Smith

          Probably not by force. Around here, we had a man raping male college students at gunpoint about ten years ago, with the only item of his published description being that he wore black gym shoes (wonder why?) and the cops mentioned never having seen such a thing before. I imagine most of it is done by drugging the victim.

          • ZB01

            He was from Texas, right?

          • John Smith

            I don’t know where he was from or that he was ever caught, but I’m in OH.

          • Charles Martel

            Was that in the Houston area, which Nicholas Stix covered?

          • John Smith

            Southern OH.

            Do you have a link I didn’t hear about that one.

          • Charles Martel

            dang the only description was that he wore black gym shoes.

          • John Smith

            The non-description description is always informative by the absence of detail.

    • Oil Can Harry

      Blacks have always had higher STD rates than whites. A century ago a number of prominent black US entertainers died from syphilis and gonorrhea.

      • Alden

        A friend who was a nurse in the local juvenile hall said that almost all the blacks including as young as 11 had STDs , many severe strains

    • John Smith

      They focus too much on the bananas they use for demonstration purposes.

  • gay and bisexual black men age 13-24

    13-year old “men?”

    BTW, the bar graph that the CDC data provided is an enigma to me. Attached to this comment. You’ll notice that as you step up in age range, the absolute number of new HIV cases in blacks declines, while in whites it looks more like a classic bell curve.

    Theories?

    • SlizzardAjeosshi

      Well it’s only conjecturing on my side here but i believe the rationale (in the loosest meaning of the word) behind the data might lie in the fact blacks mature at an earlier age and are also plagued by incredibly destructive behavior.

      So the older age groups are mostly made of the few responsible and intelligent ones who made it out of their teenage and young adulthood years alive while the crazies have already weeded themselves out of the population.

      Black adolescence must be one hellish experience

      • Okay, I’m not that surprised that with blacks it’s a down hill slope. But why, for example, do we find a higher raw count in 45-54 whites compared to 13-24 whites? Even 55+ whites look like they’re half of what 13-24 whites are.

        • SlizzardAjeosshi

          That’s a truly interesting question and one i don’t know how to answer. The vaguely longnormal shape of the white distribution maybe indicate an explosion of destructive behavioral patterns during white young adulthood that progressively and relatively slowly wean off as they’re not as widespread and not as nihilistic as those observed among blacks ?

          I wonder if some serious non-pc scientific literature exist on the topic

        • Charles Martel

          The AIDS drugs let them live longer as long as they are smart enough to take them correctly. It would be funny if black stupidity ruined the ability of the cocktails to work by creating drug resistance via incorrect dosage/time. Think of complicated med schedules like an IQ test.

          • newscomments70

            It’s more than just taking the proper medication. In order for an AIDS patient to have longevity, he or she must refrain from party drugs, heavy drinking, and sleeping around. Not everyone is willing to do that.

          • Charles Martel

            Sounds more like a long term IQ tests. Do you want to live to see 50 or have sex with 50 guys a week.

        • Kman

          Gays are fascinated and strongly drawn to boys. Nuff said.

      • BloodofAlbion75

        “Blacks mature at an earlier age…”

        Physically yes,mentally no.

        • SlizzardAjeosshi

          Indeed, to a certain degree they even regress. Probably when they’re really young some semblance of public authority (school, cops etc.) still holds some grip over their feeble minds.

          Once they hit puberty it’s one huge world star hip-hop party for them

        • Reynardine

          Blacks mentally mature?

          Since when?

          • BloodofAlbion75

            Since,um…

            Alright,I’ll admit it,your question has me stumped.

          • Physical maturity and mental/emotional incompetence is a hideous combination.

      • Charles Martel

        The better way of saying it is they stop maturing. A black adult with a 70IQ is more like a 11yo child in an adults body than other races with equally low IQ. A white with 70IQ would have severe disability but probably better skills at math than a black with 70IQ.

        • Alexandra1973

          My mildly-autistic son, I’m told, has an IQ of 44 (which his aunt points out is *testable* IQ). He can add in his head and seems to have an intuitive grasp of physics (he can master Angry Birds levels faster than I can at times). He understands more than he lets on.

          He also knows he’d better behave–or else.

          • Charles Martel

            That’s better than the black cashier I had today who run me up as $10.14 and couldn’t understand why I handed him a twenty and a one dollar bill.

    • Usually Much Calmer

      No theory required, it’s just numbers. You can’t contract HIV twice. Blacks get it over with early.

      In other words, at over 55 , the population you can draw new cases from among blacks is much smaller. The sum total of ‘new cases’ can never be larger than the population.

      • Charles Martel

        Also the drug cocktails that control AIDS are like a long term IQ test, people smart enough to take them correctly live longer.

        • Usually Much Calmer

          That was a nice point when you made it above, but in terms of the visual display of new cases by race and then by age cohort, it only shows up insofar as, by the time you are 55, many of the black men with HIV that you could contract it from . . . are dead either from failing to follow a drug protocol or from any other simple minded, low time preference behavior.
          I’m not sure your point will be salient in this chart.

          • Charles Martel

            Rich gays like Bryan Singer even when they are old can end up with 14yo boys by using drugs and vacations to lure them as several gays that got too old to get free drugs ended up suing him before they hit 30yo. Old blacks don’t have the disposable income to buy sex with the possibility of infection. I believe it was posted here about the NY Times white gay reporter that got beat up by a black homeless man he tried to pay for sex, I doubt he wanted to pay for one his age.

    • TruthBeTold

      Despite the myth that NBCs’ ‘To Catch A Predator’ series promoted, I believe there’s a higher percentage of child sexual abuse in the black community than in the white community.

      I read that blacks were less likely to report such cases to the police so the numbers appear lower.

      Also years ago I was going through our county sexual predator website and I counted more blacks than whites as child sexual abusers. I brought this up to blacks on web forums but blacks kept repeating the CaP line that whites were child molesters.

      • Whites are way more likely than blacks to snitch on 40-year old men they find on top of 13-year old girls.

      • BloodofAlbion75

        “I believe there’s a higher percentage of child sexual abuse in the black community than in the white community.”

        There is also A LOT of child sexual (and physical and mental) abuse in the Latino community. I’d even be willing to bet that it’s prevalence is much higher among Latinos than it is among blacks or Whites.

        • John Smith

          They like their women young.

      • BlueSonicStreak

        I would be certain you are correct. Funny, I was just having this argument elsewhere.

        Unfortunately, it’s a little hard to track down recent data online to argue it solidly. In the early nineties, the DOJ was reporting that 20% of child molesters were black (at 13% of the population). I can think of no reason for the black rate of molestation to have dropped; but you’re obviously going to receive criticism citing numbers so dated.

        In 2011, there was a black women’s advocacy group that did a victimization survey and found 60% of the black women they surveyed reported being sexually abused by a BLACK man (specifically) by the age of 18. (Cautions here are the relatively small sample size, what sounds like probable self-selection bias, and the fact that this is a feminist group who were probably defining “abuse” pretty broadly. Still, this is a higher rate of abuse than whites report in similar studies.)

        It looks like all the links to the study on the Black Women’s Blueprint site are now dead, but you can still find reports on the study elsewhere:

        newsone(dot)com/1680915/half-of-black-girls-sexually-assaulted/

    • Charles Martel

      Well they don’t get much smarter past 13. Everyone else is able to live longer than them as well.

    • Speedy Steve

      Are you aware that it’s racist to notice the obvious truth?

    • Note that this bar graph shows absolute numbers, and does not adjust for percentage representation of the three groups in the US population. Since blacks and Hispanics are of approximately equal numbers, a direct comparison using this graph is quite useful, but if we assume the non-Hispanic white population is some 63% of the US, we would need to shrink each of the blue bars by 4/5 in order to provide a per capita relative risk of new HIV infection.

    • IBWHITE

      I imagine many of them are long dead by their 40th year on this planet.

  • Chip Carver

    This problem is also due to the astoundingly high percentage of “straight” black males who engage in homosexual sex when a woman isn’t available – at least that’s the excuse – and by keeping it on the “downlow” they don’t think that it’s gay behavior or consider themselves gay. Any old port in a storm apparently.

    • That, and the “any old port in the storm” thing even goes for hetero blacks vis a vis their women. And remember, docking the boat around back is a very easy HIV-AIDS TX vector.

      • BloodofAlbion75

        “docking the boat around back is a very easy HIV-AIDS TX vector.”

        I detect a new definition for the word “SCUTTLEBUTT”.

          That requires a pilot of the Windward Passage.

    • InAFreeCountry

  • Realist.44

    Over my twenty five plus years as a YMCA member I’ve seen a large number of “down-low” blacks loitering around steam rooms and locker rooms looking to blow somebody or begging strangers to anally stuff them. Upon leaving the Y I often see their wife or girlfriend waiting for them, clueless as to their “mans” sex-with-anyone ways and wondering how many of them become infected. Zero critical thought, only instant gratification for these blacks.

    • David Ashton

      Do they expect payment from the YT YMs or can’t they wait till they get home? The cottaging and renting in public lavatories and public baths in England used to be a notoriously white nuisance, still despised by blacks. But young men, “there’s no need to feel down” – just do what you want, wherever you want, however you want, whomever you want – that’s “social liberalism”.

  • RacialRay

    I’m just waiting to see how the blacks twist this report to put the blame on white racism.

    • Rhialto

      No problem! Racism lowers a Black’s self-esteem; the Black believes that he is worthless; the Black then engages is self destructive behaviour to punish himself; QED.

    • Jason Lewis

      The white man invented Aids and Ebola to kill the black man. At least that’s what I was told by Louis Farakan.

    And still nothing regarding the 500,000 White American men who have already died of AIDS? Some don’t count even if they have died of AIDS. Other’s have always been counted going on 30 years because they are ‘projected’ to become AIDS victims.

    • IstvanIN

      They are dead, nothing to be done for them. This article seems to be about how HIV “disproportionately” affects blacks.

      • LHathaway

        As has every article concerning AIDS that has ever been written . . . Even as 500,000 White American men died of AIDS the media focused solely on ‘Projected cases of AIDS’ and then media obsession became ‘New cases of AIDS. Some newspapers in the South have actually begun listing current death rates of AIDS by race. It only took them 30 years. And again, so far, this is only local coverage in Southern States so far. I would guess East Coast newspapers will be next, perhaps, in the next decade or so, begin releasing current (and only current) AIDS deaths in the state by race.

      • InAFreeCountry

        HIV disproportionately affects idiots that won’t wrap it.

    • Blacks thought HIV was pretty funny when it was overwhelmingly a disease of gay white men. Now they’re calling it a “CIA conspiracy” against them.

      • BloodofAlbion75

        ” ‘CIA conspiracy’ ”

        They also repeat the thoroughly discredited lie–with the zealous encouragement of the libertarian types–that the CIA was guilty of trafficking cocaine into inner-city neighborhoods as part of the government’s “war” against the blacks.

        • Never mind that the CIA is an intelligence-gathering agency that is expressly prohibited domestic operations (those are reserved for the FBI)!

        • Alexandra1973

          Similar to what I said in an earlier post…even if it were true, all they’d have to do is “just say no.”

      At a cost to taxpayers of around $50,000 a year, with bath house barry dropping the HIV travel ban we are getting refugees like the boston marathon brothers on welfare,secition8, food stamps & the watch list. Then add the cost of HIV meds yet we have homeless veterans that could use housing that already know how to use a toilet.

She’s always acting black, which at the store means making a scene, holding up the line, and getting into irrational altercations with store employees. No man in sight, no ring on the finger.

        • Magician

          I live in MA and when I walked around Manhattan last time, I saw hundreds of blacks and whites, but I did not see any blatant white female – black male couple. I did see one white mother with a mulatto baby. And as you said, the daddy was not around.

  • Ograf

    Also one must consider that they will have sex with anything that breaths and or gets some kind of gubmint money.

  • BloodofAlbion75

    It is not a lack of condom usage that is responsible for the increased prevalence of HIV/AIDS in the black community.Their notoriously reckless behavior,appalling lack of self-control and endemic immaturity is to blame for that.

    They have no one to blame for this situation except themselves.

  • John Ambrose

    They say it’s a “startling trend”

    Obviously gays regardless of race of more likely to contract HIV and blacks regardless of sexual orientation are more like to contract HIV. It’s been “trending” that way since when AIDS was first discovered. Many smart and well informed HIV- gay men these days take a daily dose of anti-viral HIV meds which cuts their chance of ever getting the disease by about 95%; but blacks are disproportionality dull and uniformed and their are no pills to change that.

    • SolStans

      The SJWs, of course, would say this is because African-Americans (peace be upon them) are “underserved” and “disenfranchised” with respect to medical care and prescription drug access.

      You use your bodyparts for purposes other than its true purposes, and you are bound to harm your body….

      Just a few minutes ago, I looked out the window while enjoying a cup of coffee, and I saw two young guys walking unsually close to each other, and I observed their hands and there it was, they were walking hand-in-hand

      • BlueSonicStreak

        As a general argument, that’s not a good one. We use our body parts for all KINDS of things that could not defined as their “true purpose,” and which are not necessarily harmful. Including sexual things – is it the “true purpose” of the clitoris to be licked? Doubt it, but that particular sexual activity is generally quite safe.

        No, the problem here is sticking a body part loaded with mucous membranes into an orifice infected with waste (and potential disease) that no other part of the body is supposed to touch anymore – and the total failure of the gay community to discourage that act.

        • Bartholomew_1

          That’s a good point. But why should the gays listen to it when guys like Magician object to them just holding hands? As far as he knows those two guys, if they even are a couple, do other stuff than the butt nasty.

          But does it matter? Nah. It’s all gay. “It’s all the same ball game”. Equating relatively safe acts with dangerous ones like anal, gives gays no encouragement to change their behavior. No wonder they keep doing stupid, dangerous sex acts that spread disease when the only people telling them not to are also insisting they live like monks. Smh.

          • BlueSonicStreak

            Thank you.

            A lot of young gay men have to get over an instinctive aversion to anal anyway; the primary reason they do so is that anal sex is encouraged in the gay community, along with other sorts of degeneracy like extreme promiscuity.

            Not everyone gay has anal sex. (And a significant number of heterosexuals DO.) But it would be less of a problem if sexual identity in the male gay community didn’t revolve so much around willingness to engage in anal intercourse.

      • Bartholomew_1

    Black culture is very secretive. But the media scoop, of course, is that the only difference is skin color. This is more of the same that blacks, on the whole, are going to do it their way and no one is going to give them constructive advice or criticism.

    • Light from the East

      If skin color is the only difference, there is no difference between South Indians and black people. However, look at their IQ, culture, languages, skull shape, life expectancy, etc, you know the concept of race is way more than skin deep.

    • BloodofAlbion75

      “no one is going to give them constructive advice or criticism.”

      Even if someone did offer it to them,the vast majority of them would flat out reject it.

    Don’t forget chancroid:

    Chancroid is caused by a bacteria called Haemophilus ducreyi.

    The infection is found in many parts of the world, such as Africa and southwest Asia. Very few people are diagnosed in the United States each year with this infection. Most people in the U.S. who are diagnosed with chancroid have traveled outside the country to areas where the infection is more common.

    Sympathy for AIDS sufferers is just about all gone. Some poor bastards get AIDS from blood transfusions. These people get public sympathy. But those who acquire AIDS or the virus through sex are increasingly just a butt for jokes.

    The comments here are not nice – often funny – but not nice.

    • Science fiction author Isaac Asimov caught it from the blood transfusion he received during his 1983 triple-bypass operation, dying in 1992. The blood supply today is well screened, so that sort of terrible mishap is now unheard-of. People who catch it today are generally those who cheerfully ignore some 30 years of advice about wearing condoms and (for junkies) not sharing needles. The name of the game today is the same as when I was working in industry with dangerous chemicals: get educated and then minimize the risks. The CDC and various government health departments publish lots of information at taxpayer expense. Unfortunately, as the saying goes “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink.”

      • John Smith

        I believe that it has actually been going down for most groups associated with increased HIV risks, EXCEPT for homosexuals, who increasingly are failing to wear condoms during sodomy.

          Suicidal “bug-chasing” fetishes might well have something to do with that.

            And people say homosexuality isn’t a mental illness….

          • BlueSonicStreak

            That would be because it it’s not. Bug-chasing probably qualifies, though.

          • John Smith

            I say different – bug chasing, coprophilia, urolagnia, fisting, object insertion, etc. are all practiced frequently by homosexuals. Their predilections mark them as not being right in the head beyond their confusion of sex roles and the purposes of certain bodily orifices.

          • BlueSonicStreak

            Oh please, what fantasy planet are you living on?

            I could go item by item here – coprophilia is rare enough that there’s basically no research on it, watersports are weird but largely harmless in moderation because urine is sterile, etc. – but the larger point here is that you seriously believe extreme sex acts like that are “practiced frequently” by homosexual people.

            Those things couldn’t even be considered all that common amongst sadomasochists.

          • John Smith

            I know it must be rare enough for Dan Savage and his buddies to fixate on it and it to be a subject of a genre of gay porn. I’ve seen the pictures of the men inserting large objects into their rectums at the Folsom St. Fair for the entertainment of the crowds there. So “yes,” I believe degenerates are degenerate. As for numbers, we don’t even know how many queers there are, but we sure bend over backwards for a small segment of society and their perversion.

          • BlueSonicStreak

            Ha, I basically grew up on Dan Savage; I’m seriously amused that you know his column.

            Savage does the weird, rare stuff. That’s his entire schtick, a column connecting the sexual weirdos who feel alone. That was, initially, pretty much the only thing that ever set him apart as a sex/relationship advice columnist. Anyone who wasn’t a sexual oddity could write to dozens of other columns and maybe get a reply; someone who wanted to be dressed up like a horse, gagged with reins and beaten with a riding crop could never hope for an answer. Savage answered them. Hence the success of his column – gay or straight, there’s a enough people like that (and the supportive gawkers) to run each week.

            we sure bend over backwards for a small segment of society and their perversion.

            Even homos, oddly enough, have family and close friends who are also affected by unreasoning hatred of homosexuality.

          • John Smith

            I don’t know that it’s all that unreasonable when you consider they’re the group that is infected with HIV at the highest rates, mostly because of the nature of their sexual practices. Considering some are going to be drug users or “bisexual,” that means they’re a major source of introduction into heterosexual populations.

          • BlueSonicStreak

            I hate drug users and people who have thoughtless, unprotected, promiscuous sex. That does include quite a few homosexuals, but it also includes many heterosexuals.

            It does not include ALL homosexuals, and hating an entire group of people because they share a sexuality with people who irresponsibly spread disease is off the deep end.

            And this is where I’m going to leave it, because I don’t think I will ever see a rational comment from you on this.

          • John Smith

            Not all blacks are stupid lazy and commit crimes. Not all Jews are greedy and manipulative leftists. And, yes, not all queers are promiscuous and irresponsible (though we’re going to have to disagree about the “deviants” part). The problem is that a many, even most, are. Pretending otherwise is irrational.

          • BlueSonicStreak

            I don’t think it’s rational to hate all blacks or Jews either, funnily enough. Yes, we will have to disagree.

          • John Smith

            I don’t think it’s rational to bother taking the time to find out the individual differences, especially if you’d be more often right than wrong.

      Many AIDS victims, especially in South Africa, have acquired AIDS through being raped. I don’t blame the victims in that case. Many of them are actually less than three years old.

  • newscomments70

    Young whites and Asians participate in this behavior as well. I don’t know the exact statistics, but it is rampant. If you notice, white youth often “act black”.

    • Magician

      I just looked it up and found this

      “But the pills for HIV that he’s taken daily since then have come with a
      hefty price tag. Monthly HIV treatment regimens range from $2,000 to
      $5,000”

      which is $24,000~$60,000 per year.

      Another source

      “When treatment does begin, the average monthly cost is
      about $2,100. The cost of drugs is nearly three-fourths of the lifetime
      expense.

      Unfortunately, one in four people with HIV don’t know they’re infected. They find out only when their immune system collapses.

      The cost of treatment started at this late stage
      averages $4,700 per month. That’s because hospital costs rise to almost
      half the lifetime expense.”

      • newscomments70

        I believe after ten years or s the amount increases to $20,000+.

    • BlueSonicStreak

      I tell gay liberals online, “It costs $20,000 per month to keep you people alive.

      Well, that’s honestly a stupid comment. What was this on, a forum for AIDS sufferers? For all you know, you’re talking to someone perfectly healthy. I know many gay liberals, and zero of them with HIV/AIDS.

      • newscomments70

        You don’t know what they have or don’t have. I know a doctor in the LA area, certified liberal. He told me that at more than 50% of them are positive. Also, I work at a university, I have an idea of what goes on with the youth culture. Discussions can go into many tangents….but next time I will check with you for what I’m allowed to talk about.

        • BlueSonicStreak

          Fifty percent is nearly three times the actual national infection rate.

          Love the hyperbolic stories here, it tells me who not to trust.

          • newscomments70

            I cannot give you the gentleman’s credentials over the internet, but I’m quite sure he knows more than you do.

          • BlueSonicStreak

            I’m sure he does.

            I’m sure he also knows what a biased sample (urban LA, gay-friendly doctor) looks like, even if you don’t.

          • newscomments70

            He is a doctor specializing in infectious diseases. I work in the medical industry and know more than one. To be fair, exact statistics are impossible to quantify. One horrifying trend they spoke of was a surge HIV in the illegal demographic. In those countries, same sex relations are more of a stigma than they are here . Such men will do something anonymous and unsafe, and then give HIV to their wives and unborn children. Entire familes are showing up to their offices with the virus. It is all paid for by the taxpayer. He spoke of a noticable trend, but did not have exact numbers. Your sample is a small group friends with a certain political slant, that could be biased as well. And whatever you think, I am not on my way to a KKK meeting. I live and work in a very diverse enviroment. I get along with most people and listen to their points of view.

  • Douglas Quaid

    What we need to confront this disturbing trend is a government program targeting the inner city gay hang outs. There needs to be booths that distribute free educational brochures on HIV and free condoms with a tutorial on how to put them on. All in the name of urban uplift, change we can believe in, fighting discrimination and stuff because apparently HIV is racist too.

    • Cindy

      Ha ha! Too funny because it’s getting to the point that doing a parody of the Left is nearly impossible.
      You could post this comment on a Lefty site and get applauded for your compassion and insight. You just cured the spread of HIV amongst blacks, if only the meanies on the Right would listen to you.

  • Magician

    Many young black males spend a few years behind bars, (It is a fact. Nothing to do with racism) and while they are behind bars, they have no choice but having sex with other inmates, which causes HIV rates among black males quickly increase. And when they do get out, after their sentence, they are free to screw anyone else they want to.

    Also, I am sure some white males also do this but, many young black males share needles to inject illegal substances into their body.

    There was a Simpsons episode when Homer went to Manhattan, and a trash can fell over, and a bunch of needles spilled out on the ground.

  • Pa Guy in NJ

    A few years ago I saw a report from their mothaland about HIV. Many of the “men” said that they know they have it and are actually trying to infect as many others as they can. Misery loves company.

  • ZB01

    Is anyone surprised, as I am, that the Latino rate of infection is lower than the White? And does anyone have an explanation as to why?

    • Magician

      There are simply more whites than latinos in the country.

  • John Smith

    Barry should be worried – he should ask Reggie Love and Kal Penn to get tested.

  • John Smith

    Many will just as happily rape a white woman.

  • John Smith

    Coincidentally, I was informed by my mother that the son of a family friend was raped by a negro last year at college, after going to a bar, but only just told his folks and didn’t report it to the cops. The victim was 6’2″ and a football player in HS; his HIV tests have been negative, but the window for detection is still open. This happened in the South.
