Subject: RE: BS: Why I am gone
Ake, note the stats from below - what do you propose be done to rectify this major health issue among minorties?

Note I am not suggesting that NA Indians (and possibly the African Americans) should be "rounded up" and put on reservations, and kept away from the healthier whites (because, we did that, it did not work:)

""Minority Health
HIV and Sexually Transmitted Diseases - Newly diagnosed cases of HIV.
The HIV rate for American Indians is nearly 80 percent higher than
the rate for whites, but much lower than the rate for African Americans.
The same is true for the overall rate of certain sexually transmitted diseases among American Indians, whites, and African Americans (early syphilis,gonorrhea, and chlamydia)"'
