Geesh, that's nothing.
 
'Black Americans make up 13 percent of the U.S. population but account for over 50 percent of all new cases of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.'
 
 
It's lifestyle.
Another reason I don't date Black guys anymore- I got tired of arguing with guys about wearing a flipping condom. Ugh! May as well be some liitle African country where people that if you drink guava juice ..you won't get Aids. Confused

You blame your choice of continuously dating sexually irresponsible boys on their race? o_0

I think race has nothing to do with a man ignorance regarding condoms . 

Not wearing one at all

This wasn’t actually part of the study, but we should add that #15 is this: Not using one at all. According to the (most recent) National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior, only 45 percent of men ages 18 to 24 used a condom with their last sexual partner. And as the age groups increased, the stats only got worse: Only 29.3 percent of men ages 25 to 34 used condoms and 21.3 percent of men between ages 35 and 44

HIV Incidence Estimate

Incidence is the number of new HIV infections that occur during a given year. CDC estimates that approximately 50,000 people in the United States are newly infected with HIV each year. In 2010 (the most recent year that data are available), there were an estimated 47,500 new HIV infections.2 Nearly two thirds of these new infections occurred in gay and bisexual men. Black/African American men and women were also highly affected and were estimated to have an HIV incidence rate that was almost 8 times as high as the incidence rate among whites. Visit the HIV incidence page for more details.

2 CDC. Estimated HIV incidence among adults and adolescents in the United States, 2007-2010. HIV Supplemental Report 2012). Available at http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/topics/surveillance/
resources/reports/index.htm#supplemental.

Diagnoses of HIV Infection, by Race/Ethnicity

CDC tracks diagnoses of HIV infection information on seven racial and ethnic groups: American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian, black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, Native Hawaiian/other Pacific Islander, white, and multiple races.

In 2011, the estimated number of diagnoses of HIV infection in the United States was as follows:

Race or Ethnicity Estimated Number of Diagnoses of HIV Infection, 2011
American Indian/Alaska Native 212
Asian 982
Black/African American 23,168
Hispanic/Latinoa 10,159
Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander 78
White 13,846
Multiple Races 827
a Hispanics/Latinos can be of any race.

For more details on HIV infection and race/ethnicity, see CDC's Populations and Surveillance fact sheets.

Yeah, unfortunately we can't be in denial on who is makin up the number of infected. A lot of ppl, of all colors are going unprotected but clearly the disease is not as prelavant in their communities so we have to face the facts. You are more likely to be HIV positive in America if you are black or gay. It doesn't mean that you're safe dating interracially but it does mean that you have to know whats out there. There's a lot of analogies I could use but I don't feel like it.

But let's please not let black pride blind us. I hear too many black ppl in denial coughcoughpositivekcoughcough.

We have to take some statistics with a grain of salt though. The world will never know the truth about white sexual behavior because alot of the healthcare facilities they go to are private & don't report data whereas many blacks go to the public health clinic and they are going to send those numbers to the CDC.
