Poor Black and Hispanic Men Are the Face of H.I.V.




".....Besides transgender people like Giselle, the affected group includes men who are openly gay, secretly gay or bisexual, and those who consider themselves heterosexual but have had sex with men, willingly or unwillingly, in shelters or prison or for money...."

Among the poor, untreated or inadequately treated H.I.V. is the norm, not the exception, said Perry N. Halkitis, a professor of psychology and public health at York University. According to the C.D.C., 79 percent of H.I.V.-infected black men who have sex with men and 74 percent of Hispanics are not ?virally suppressed,? meaning they can transmit the infection, either because they are not yet on antiretroviral drugs or are not taking them daily.

According to a major C.D.C.-led study, a male-male sex act for a young black American is eight times as likely to end in H.I.V. infection as it is for his white peers.

That is true even though, on average, black youths in the study took fewer risks than their white peers: they had fewer partners, engaged in fewer acts of sex while drunk or high, and used condoms more often.

a supposed superior race does not need a reason to feel good about themselves nor do they require a reason to look down on everyone else.... these are intrinsic flaws inherited by them.

Although you view the article as a slight against black people, I view this as a segment of a minority population that is overlooked and is falling between the cracks of invisibility as if they don't matter. Did you not take a moment and read the article? Did you not take note of these young men's cry of pain and for help?

oh well, at any rate, thank you for your comment.

I understand your reasons for posting...for "awareness"...but they do this every year with something . If its not AIDS, its incarceration or black women and their sexual habits, or black children in school, or black families or Hispanic. The problem is they will publish anything to make the lesser look bad and themselves look good. I have been studying this sort of thing for years and it goes on and on. It is not anything WE do, it is the culture and whatever immoral behavior and example they set, they pass it on to the lesser and then turn and undermine them. Next, it will be minority gay marriage, something they started. Just saying, it is old and have been done to death.

ok. I get you.

1. exploitation of a minority within a minority simply means that the minority w/in the minority is in need of outreach programs, perhaps from those as wise as yourself who has studied the phenomenon for years and may be able to help them to help themselves free themselves from a burden that is possibly to heavy a load for them to carry on their own.

2. it is a known fact that whatever or whomever a conqueror attacks, the conqueror absorbs the conquered. that means that the oppressed often takes on the habits of the oppressor in an attempt to adapt and blend in.

3. it is the responsibility of those who are gifted with wisdom enough to see the forest for the trees, to inform the misguided that they do not have to participate nor get involved in a culture that has a history of undermining them in order to make 'themselves look good'.

4. other than contesting the validity of the article, as if such persons do not exist and no such event could possibly be except in the realms of the 'media', what do you plan to do to reach out to those poor unfortunate souls, if anything?

1. Not kicking or picking on anyone. Nor do I politely side-step or step-over the down-trodden...that's just heartless

2. Unfortunately, I have heard such tales of horror from the type of victims spoken of in the article.

3. we all have mountains and valleys in our life, some just don't understand how to get over the hump b/c of the abuse they have endured b/c they don't know whom or where to acquire help for their problems.

4. I stand by my belief that impoverished black americans suffer from traumatic stress disorder all day every day and often participate in unhealthy lifestyles and recreation as a means to escape.

5. Are you blessed or sheltered to never have witnessed such tragedies?

6. I don't believe that black is the bottom of everything.
I believe the us of a is a totally dysfunctional union b/c it was built on a foundation of slaughter.
