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.
I agree and my comment was basically Speaking on men in general condom use . As many know , I work in the ER as a nurse . The number of young white & black people i treat due to complications from HIV breaks my Heart . I need to retire soon .

'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
 

LMAO. Too real. LOL

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.

 
 
Exactly.
 
These stats as well as a million other stats make my point and have made my point for years and years. This is old news in fact.
 
Black people make up only 13% of the population but they are the HIGHEST group contracting AIDs/HIV. What is wrong with that picture?
 
Black people like to pretend this is not true and that everyone else is getting Aids too ... and they are ... as the stats say .. it's just Black are getting it at a DISPROPORTIONATELY HIGH level.
 
And if you know how Aids is contracted ... physically it is MUCH easier for a man to give it to a woman .. than the other way around.
 
I know several Black females that have it now and they blew me off years ago too.
 
This doesn't mean you can't get Aids from another group .. it's just that other men are MUCH MORE LIKELY to wear a condom. If I say I require it - they will do it but with most Blacks guys I have dated they may wear a condom once if I insist but the next time we get together .. they don't want to wear it again so we are back to arguing. That's why I am through dealing with them. Confused 
 
I just not playing Russian Roulette
 
It's a LIFESTYLE in the Black community where women will sleep with a guy without condom. Everyone can stay in denial, ignore all the articles and ... take their chances.Ouch
 
I wonder how many Black men reading this post right now wear a condom EVERY TIME and how many Black women reading this post WILL NOT SLEEP with a man unless he wears condom?
 
Marrige is a MAYBE because alot of guys cheat and don't use a condom .. just so they can come home and sleep with their wives... without a condom.
 
They best defence though is .... NOT SLEEPING AROUND. DUH!
