View Full Version : Black Americans make up 45% of new HIV cases....

Despite being 13% of the US population, blacks make up 45% of all new HIV cases in the US. Why is that? Government conspiracy? The black news outlet "Daily Voice" thinks so....



The study concludes that Black Americans made up at least 45 percent of new infections in 2006. Given that finding, it must now be the CDC's most urgent research priority to provide useful details to our community on how the virus is spreading, who is most at risk, and what we can do about it. We cannot afford a long delay in getting this information out, and the CDC must clearly communicate directly with the Black community about when the information will be available.

Black women are believed to account for two-thirds of all infections among women, and AIDS remains a leading cause of death for young Black women. Another CDC study found that 46 percent of black gay and bisexual men tested in several major cities were already HIV positive.

They must have missed the study that shows its another genetic difference between blacks and whites that increases their risk:


A genetic variant commonly found in people of African descent raises the risk of HIV infection by about 40 percent, but also causes HIV-infected people to live longer.

That's the conclusion of joint American and British research published today in the journal Cell Host & Microbe, which indicates the mutation might help account for the spread of the AIDS virus in Africa.

Researchers say the trait is extremely common because it used to have a beneficial effect; it protected people against a form of malaria that is now fairly rare.

About three-quarters of the 33 million people worldwide infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, live in sub-Saharan Africa, where most people are black. The gene variation may provide a clue as to why the virus has spread so much there, as well as among people with African heritage living elsewhere, said Professor Robin Weiss, a University College London virologist who helped write the study.

Hey now, don't jump to conclusions. Blacks should be happy by this study. The only argument for the increased infection rate before this came out was simply they were either a) more sexually promiscuous or b) didnt use protection or c) government conspiracy. This gives them a great defense.

It is spread by unprotected sex.

Those that are most at risk are those that have unprotected sex.

What you can do about it is to stop having unprotected sex and tell people to stop having unprotected sex.

Just doing my part for the "community". :rolleyes:

Oh, what's that? You're asking for money? Forget it.

Hey - they just donít make condoms big enough for the Brothers. What can I say? White man marketing mistake.:cool:

Who would have thought that mutatiion, unprotected sex and drug use causes HIV. Looks like a conspiracy to me; infect them and/or put em in jail. The white man is the culprit.

Actually the idea that AIDS was developed by the CIA to destroy Africa is widespread. It's been around for a long time.

Islam has been around a long time too.

Why would anyone need to destroy Africa? The Africans seem to be doing a bang-up job all by themselves.

I'm not saying you're a racist or anything. Hell, I'm not either. But have you noticed who is absent from this thread? Statistics and the truth about "his community" scare him off.

There is an interesting theory about HIV coming into the human population via contaminated monkeys used for polio vaccines. I saw a documentary about it. The CIA had nothing to do with it.

Really? I hadn't heard that one. Contaminated vaccines would explain the rapid spread.

In the 50s, a couple of different organizations were doing research in Stanleytown. When a german scientist ran out of the officially tested and disease free monkeys (they use monkey kidneys to make the vaccine), they started using local monkeys that weren't tested, then tested the vaccines on the local population. The first AIDS cases were discovered in that part of the Congo in the 60s.

Salk was onto this connection-he was working on an HIV vaccine when he died. He condemned the other scientist at the time as using sloppy procedures-there was a lot of competition to get the vaccine produced, and to get the contracts with governments and international aid organizations.

Although it may be an example of Europeans (white people) using a more primitive group of people as rat labs, which is a despicable practice by today's standards, the US government was not part of this situation. Maybe the germans and the UN/WHO or whichever agency was involved, and whatever pharm company was involved, but it wasn't the USA's fault.

The documentary is called "The Orgin of AIDS" and was on various digital cable channels about a year ago-maybe I saw it on the Sundance Channel?

Possible. The much more likely probability is beastiality to enter it into humankind and homosexuality to rapidly spread it across the borders of Africa. The first known human diagnosis was a gay, male flight attendant from Canada.

Actually it is much more likely that it spread from simians to humans via a bite since monkey bites are a lot more common than intercourse with monkeys.
