    Young Blacks Are Practicing Safer Sex Than White Counterparts

    WASHINGTON - A new study says even though Blacks ages 18-26 are practicing safer sex than their White counterparts, they still are "nearly 25 times more likely to be infected than White young people engaging in the same behavior."

    The study, titled "Sexual and Drug Behavior Patterns and HIV/STD Racial Disparities: The Need for New Directions," shows Black youth in this age group aren't drinking, smoking or using drugs as much as Whites their age, but statistically they have a greater chance of having sex with someone who has an STD because the prevalence is so high in the Black community.

    ...After all, WE are NOT the ones who follow the ways of Dionysus...

    Nonetheless, this, like many other (re)views, does not surprise me.

    I agree Africana!

    Do anyone know how they really collect these statistics?

    They set up shop at the free or health centers for low-income families. They donate so much money toward these institutions which in turn, allots them access to certain personal records.

    In higher income communities, where there contributions arent needed, rarely are they allowed access to those records. So therefore, they cannot do a thorough analyzes of caucasians whom have the hiv/aids virus or any STDs.

    So basically, they can not do an accurate study, yet still they post their findings knowing this. This causes grave alarm in our communities and further divide us from one another. Making us believe we are the worst people on the planet to form relationships with and it's safer to date outside our race.

    While STDs and HIV/AIDs should cause alarm and initiate the practicing of safe sex, we should also keep in mind, that the greatest partner to have, is one of our own.

    HIV *DOES NOT* Cause AIDS!!!!

    The reason we practice "safer" sex and still are "infected" at higher rates is because we are targeted by the White Supremacist economic structure. HIV does not cause AIDS...I repeat...HIV...DOES...NOT...Cause...AIDS!!!

    A few things you should know. There is no such thing as an HIV test. When you take one with the purported name, it checks for antibodies for the HIV virus, not the virus itself. There is no known virus or bacteria in the world that can survive after the human body creates antibodies for it. The only reason it hasn't been exposed mainstream is because HIV/AIDS research makes too much money.

    You really shouldn't believe me, so listen to the expert pathologists on retroviruses. There is a growing medical/biological community calling for real research to be done. If you want to know the probable real causes of AIDS, then look at this shortened video...please...
