African-Americans face uphill HIV fight
The Record [Hackensack, NJ], by Mary Jo Layton

Original Article

A 20-year-old diagnosed with HIV or AIDS today can expect to live 50 years, due to groundbreaking advances in treatment since the discovery of the virus 30 years ago. Despite the progress, troubling trends remain: 47,500 new cases of HIV infection are diagnosed each year in the U.S. And in the African-American community, the statistics are even more grim: The virus continues to strike a disproportionate number of blacks, and their death rates are higher than other ethnic groups. In New Jersey, African-Americans make up 14 percent of the population but constitute 53 percent of the people

Comments:
New infections run about triple the annual "gun" deaths in the US, and thanks to the Down Low and prison cultures, black women are 20 times more likely than white women to be infected.

So, we conclude that AIDS is racist and Emperor Zero does not care about his own kind (closeted or black, take your pick).

The virus doesn´t "strike" a person, like a bolt of lightning might strike. A person CONTRACTS the virus, through an action. They make it sound like a person is unlucky rather than doing something that has a price.

Somehow I knew blacks would be hit the hardest.

I swear to God if there was a story about a shortage of blond hair for wigs, the media would report that blacks would be hit the hardest.

Do these dummies have any idea what this constant portrayal of blacks as victims has done to the black community? Do they care?

You´re right #2, the 4 large vectors in the world have been transfusions of infected blood, sharing needles, infected men having sex with young virgin girls, and infected men engaging in anal sex. So why is there a large disparity between black and white women? Are there any courageous black leaders out there who would like to take this on? I understand that by asking the question I will be defined as a racist and sexist.

That progress is partially responsible for the increase in new cases.

In those 50 remaining years, he/she can continue infecting others, thousands of others.

AIDs is a behavioral disease. Do we see the same "compassion" for smokers with cancer?

It´s OK to say African-Americans have a disproportionately high rate of HIV. Left alone this statement implies victimhood.
But start asking why the rates are so high, if irresponsible behavior is the root cause... Well, that must be racist...

Sounds eerily the same as the general crime statistics.

Nearly 40 children have been found with guns on school premises over the last three years, a shocking new national survey has disclosed. Figures obtained from police forces across Britain showed guns and air weapons had been confiscated on 37 occasions by officers - including two hand guns. The other guns included 27 ball bearing guns and seven other air weapons. The figures showed almost 1,000 pupils in total were caught by police with weapons in schools including a Taser stun gun, a meat cleaver, three axes and a cut-throat razor. The total is likely to be only the tip

Trenton - Three people were shot today when gunfire erupted at a funeral at the Galilee Baptist Church in Trenton for a 19-year-old man killed in a shooting earlier this month. Two men are in stable condition at Capital Health Regional Medical Center after being taken by ambulance from the church and a woman, who was driven to the hospital, is being treated for a graze wound, said Trenton Police Director Ralph Rivera. One man is in custody and five guns have been seized after police stopped a car fleeing the church, Rivera said. The name of the man taken

4 Alabama counties have more active,

Montgomery, Alabama — Less than three months before the June primary, four Alabama counties had more voters on their rolls than what the Census Bureau says is their voting age population. Officials give a number of reasons for that, including under-counting by the census. Secretary of State Jim Bennett said the discrepancies create opportunity for voting fraud. “Every duplicate name and every bad address is just an opportunity for crooks to attempt to manipulate our elections,” Bennett said. Each county has a three-person board of registrars that is responsible for maintaining the voting lists with help from the secretary of

New York City — A belligerent bus rider who was caught on camera attacking a pair of senior citizens received a taste of street justice from fellow riders, who took him down and tossed him onto a sidewalk. The nearly 2-minute video starts with a straphanger verbally assaulting a woman sitting down in the bus’ priority seating. He goes on an expletive laden, sexually derogatory tirade, gradually moving closer toward the victim. Soon after, a rider with a cane stands up to defend the woman and the attacker pounces, knocking the man’s cane from his hand. That’s when several riders sprang

With the bells of Notre Dame heralding a glorious Easter Sunday morning, a tourist uses a cash point a short stroll from the ancient Paris cathedral. Within seconds he is surrounded by an aggressive gang of Roma sneak thieves, who make no secret of what they want from him. Feeling hands on his back and arms, the middle age man turns around in horror to see the utterly fearless gang casually trying to help themselves to his money. Such scenes have become so common in the French capital that police last week called for the ´systematic eviction´ of Roma.

Four teens and a 12-year-old were busted Monday after mugging three people in Central Park, police said. Police said the boys first struck about 5:15 a.m., confronting a 31-year-old man jogging in the park on the Fifth Ave. side near E. 95th St. The youths, one wielding a small wooden bat, demanded the man´s money, cops said. When the victim resisted, one boy punched him in the face and then took off with the rest of the group, police said. A short time later, the gang mugged two women ages 48 and 46, near the reservoir,

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
