This is racism I will fight against

Currently I am reading the report “Left Behind! Black America: A Neglected Priority in the Global AIDS Epidemic“. In it I found the following remark:

“AIDS in America is a Black disease.”

I don’t care what the statistics say, AIDS, or any other disease for that matter can and does affect ANYBODY–regardless of race. When AIDS was a huge problem in the White homosexual community, I do not recall anybody suggesting that it is a “White” disease. Yet when when it affects us, automatically it gets assigned a race.

And the worst thing about it, Black folks authored this report.

UPDATE***

Most of this report parrots the narrative that Blacks are too po’ and weak to make wise decisions for themselves. WHAT THIS REPORT FAILS TO MENTION OR EVEN ACKNOWLEDGE IS THAT THERE ARE MANY BLACK AMERICANS IN THIS COUNTRY WHO ARE NOT INFECTED WITH HIV. If you are going to do a serious study, seems to me you would find out why the MAJORITY of the African-American population has managed not to get infected with this disease. Where is the comparison between the sexual habits of healthy Black folks vs. those who are infected with this virus?

    I guess we should just be thankful they didn’t bring back the ‘infamous monkey theory’

    I remember the media warning me about the explosion of “white heterosexual aids “. Something that never happen.

    “Blacks are too po’ and weak to make wise decisions for themselves. ”

    Thats the mindset that most liberals have.Therefore thats what your gonna get from the liberal media or studies they do.

    Those test are antibody tests. They have not been approved by the CDC and there is no test for HIV. Visit helpfor hiv.com.
