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

man this is crazy. according to the stats I wonder how many members here have HIV? I am not making a joke. I just think its crazy. I get tested at least once per year! Thank GOD I am free of this- but at least people feel like they can come clean- instead of living in shame and silence.


Ain't no poor people on BHM.
I think most are poor,that's why they spend so much time on this forum waiting for a something amazing to happen???
but all jokes aside this is still killing Black women at an alarming rate!

Naturesgift, is English your first language ? I'm not being disrespectful.

Also when you said Waiting for something amazing to happen??? did you mean drama on the board between members?

Didn't read the thread or see the program but something else to consider ...

access to treatment or the types of treatments being prescribed to blacks may have an impact on transmission rates

Studies have revealed how doctors show bias against blacks ... two studies off the top of my head, when prescribing pain meds and the other in diagnosis of disease for blacks

I think it also has to do with peoples attitudes towards sex. People have Sex with other people so freely and at the same time think its too soon to say: "I love you."

I did not watch this documentary so I can't comment on it. But what I would like to comment on is the fact that as a Black community we still continue to act like this is isolated to the underclass when HIV is crossing all classes...

It's 2014.  People need to protect themselves, the information is everywhere.  If I were to contract it I wouldn't have anyone to blame but myself...it's way too embedded in our community for 20 plus years to pretend not to know better.  We all take the risk when we have sex.  I agree with the statements about learning your worth...I blame that over education.  You can't educate the willfully ignorant, the education is very public and accessible.  I doubt that anyone in America that tests positive will claim that they were never told anything.  A bunch of women being infected by careless men that only care about getting their dck wet.
