I'm probably going to get called a racist/hatemonger/Nazi for stirring this pot, but when the facts show the truth, what else can you go with?

According to the latest HIV statistics released by the CDC, Blacks constitute 47% of the population infected with the HIV/AIDS virus. Pretty damning of "black culture", when you consider that Blacks constitute only 13% of the general population.

The PC crowd would have us embrace all cultures for the uniqueness and flavor that they bring to the culture as a whole. But what do you do when that sub-sub-culture can lead you to an increased risk of contracting a fatal didease?
No I am NOT saying that Blacks are responsible for HIV/AIDS, but it does seem that segments of the sub-culture are responsible for a growth in the number of cases. These are the sub-sub cultures of the black intraveineous drug user and the sub-sub culture of the Black gay/bi communities, NOT the Black sub-culture as a whole. So save the "racist" accusations.

HIV/AIDS is a lifestyle disease in the vast majority of cases, (barring the few that contracted it from blood products/natal infection) and the studies show that the high risk behaviour occurs more often in the Black community. Unprotected sex, intravenous drug use, multiple sex partners in a short time span....these are things that the Black community needs to address if these numbers are to ever go down. They can't blame it on "The Man". They will have to look closer to home and try to do something to educate the young to the dangers they face.

I believe that people such as Bill Cosby are trying to show the way, too bad that so much of the "Black Leadership" castigate the messenger and his message. Dr. Cosby has a lot of common sense to impart. But it's not too surprising, after all, his message is one of responsibility and accountability, and where is the profit/power for race issue whores in that?

I do find some measure of blame in the Political arena in this....As I noted in an earlier post, "you get more of what you subsedize" and polititions have created a whole sub-class of people that have never learned that they are responsible for their own well being. Whites are greater in number in this sub-class, but I am sure that if the numbers were screened, a large number of Black HIV/AIDS victims would also be members of this sub-class that have come to depend on the government for direction in every facet of their life.

We need to bring back the concepts of real self pride (not the vacuous "race" pride and "entitlement attitude" the the Race Whores have tried to forward as their agenda) and self reliance that made this country great. It needs to be done for ALL races, but the cancer has eaten farther in Black community with the help of the race whores and limosine Liberals, and is more urgent to correct, if the next generation of Blacks is to have a decent chance of making themselves and their community the great assets to the country that they have every right to be.

... and more than enough capability to be.

A lot of people don't understand the contributions to the greatness of America that were made by black Americans. Can anyone imagine what life would be like without traffic lights? Well, in case you didn't know, they were invented by a black American.

Some of the best musicians around are black. Heck, some of the best musicians EVER ... Satchmo, Scott Joplin, Duke Ellington, Count Basie ... The list goes on.

The point Delfts is making here is right on target. Americans need to get out of this mindset that success is controlled by external forces.

Everyone's success comes from within, even when it comes to beating HIV/AIDS.

It's also true that all the grim pathologies that effect black Americans, from illegitimacy to single parenthood, to violent death, to incarceration and all the painful signs of decay went UP with the entrenchment of the ideas of The Great Society.

That these problems first showed themselves among African-Americans says nothing in particular about them; whites and others were socially insulated from the deparadations of liberalism.

When the history of the last half of the 20th century is written, post-modern liberalism (leftism) will takes its place with the other vicious, and destructive ideologies of the age. It's the most corrosive and insidious set of fantasies every accepted by any culture in peacetime. The State gone mad.
