Yeah I didn't want to say "they ain't go sh*t to lose" so what is AIDS really--but that's kinda what I meant. Your whole life is like a virus if you want to be really metaphorical and ish.

Ugh, now I feel even more hopeless. Because there isn't a fix for those things.

Yup, agreed totally, and the bold is clutch!

that lady said fear is a reason that so many Af-american women are contracting it. I remember that 'down low book guy' said that too. He said that women are so happy to have a man in their bed they are afraid to bring up, let alone insist on condoms. I didn't believe him.

I don't know if it's really a part of the problem. But maybe.

All I know is my risk is close to 0...but I still see it as "our" problem.

I wish this too, but for both men and women! If we had more value for each other then we could be so much greater

"They" refers to the poor black women in DC that this article is talking about.
