TIA BS: Californians Oppose 'Prop 8' Gay Marriage Ban (2422* d) RE: BS: Californians Oppose 'Prop 8' Gay Marriage Ban 15 Jul 09


Ake:
You ask "Please explain why homosexuals are so many times more likely to contract Aids than homosexuals; and why any new outbreak of Aids has always shown up first in the homosexual community."

Actually the people many times more likely to be infected are black. From the CDC:

**************************
African American males continue to bear the greatest burden of HIV infection. In 2006, the HIV diagnosis rate for all black males in 33 states (119.1 per 100,000 population) was the highest of any group— more than 7 times that for white males (16.7), more than twice the rate for Hispanic males (50.9), and more than twice the rate for black females (56.2). The diagnosis rate for Hispanic males was approximately 3 times that for white males.

African American females are also severely and disproportionately affected by HIV infection. In 2006, the HIV diagnosis rate for black females (56.2) was more than 19 times the rate for white females (2.9). The rate for Hispanic women was 15.1, more than 5 times that for white females.

It is a hugely loaded question, but I am trying to understand your logic, so here it is:

Should marriage between blacks be outlawed?
