There is a high HIV infection rate in the black community. Of the 1 million people living with HIV in the United States of America today, almost half are black.
In the USA, the estimated lifetime risk of becoming infected with HIV is 1 in 16 for black males, and 60% of the women diagnosed with AIDS are black, despite blacks only composing 13% of the population.
Taking a look at the country's capital, 50.7% of the population in Washington(District of Columbia) is African American, and correspondingly, 3% of the total population has HIV or AIDS.
Among African American males in the the prison population, HIV infection is rampant. In the state of Georgia, for example, 86% of the prisoners who tested positive for HIV were black. source:
Why should I care?
AIDS is a disease and can spread. Even if you are not planning on having sex with a black person, it is possible you may have sex with someone else who has. If you are a woman, roughly 1 out of 4 rapes against whites in the USA are comitted by a black perpetrator. “Frequency and Nature of Interracial Crimes”, William Wilbanks, submitted for publication to the Justice Professional (November 7, 1990)
Who deserves the blame?
A widespread culture that does not value monogamy does not help, but not all blacks infected with HIV are to blame. It is a certain segment of the black population that goes around shamelessly spreading the disease to everyone else within the community that is mostly responsible. In no way should the higher rates of AIDS be interpreted that African American people are "bad". This is a serious medical problem in the USA and needs to be solved appropriately. Selectively discounting the facts because they may be "racist" is detrimental to public health and the safety of society.
