Why do Black people have such a higher percentage of getting AIDS/HIV than all Races?
It is absolutely astounding to the point of being unbelievable. Black woman have the highest rate, a whooping 27X more than White woman. But why exactly is this?
No, these statistics are from the US not Africa.
I wonder if it's because most of those black women live in Africa, and rape is fairly common there. Here, in the US, people I think are generally pretty careful about contracting the virus, whereas in Africa these women have no choice.
I read that it is because such a high percentage of black males living 'on the down low' ... because homosexuality is not as acceptable in the black community as in others, many men hide there sexual preference and go on to marry and have kids etc. because that is what they are 'supposed' to do (according to society)... they then have relationships/intercourse with other men and since AIDS/HIV is spread easier through anal ... some get diseases and bring them home to their wives/ girfriends
the rates are disproportionate due to the % of our population. if you know math then you will know how.
Well first off you framed the question to seem that it has always been this way. It hasn't. It just became an epidemic the last 7-10 years. A lot of that has to do with poor health care in the areas most affected. African Americans generally visit the doctor less, and rarely visit the doctor without a symptom apparent (ie like for physicals).
My understanding, and it's horrible that more black men are bisexual and not telling their mates thus ending up in more AIDS infections among the ladies. I pray this changes real soon.
It is mostly in the areas that suffer from sever poverty, unfortunately those areas have a higher percentage of black/African American. And poorer areas have less education in the matter. And no one has taken the APPROPRIATE necessary steps to deal with this issue. And yes because they are less likely to have regular doctor visits because of culture and financial issues.
Check this out...
same reason why anyone else gets HIV/AIDS nothing to do with race....What a stupid question.
I think that it's because of unprotected sex, & men on the down low.
These statistics change. . . remember in the '80s everyone considered it a gay male disease.
Because the virus started in africa. Its earliest relative is surprisingly enough in monkeys.
Black women as opposed to other women... it may have to do with a lesser use of protection. Reasons for unprotected sex could vary.
Most of you answered intelligently and the dumbazzes who answered the opposite have just shown the world how dumb your azz really is! I'd hide behind a fake picture too!
Many people (not just Blacks) still erroneously think of HIV/AIDS as being a disease that only gay guys get. And, within the Black community, homosexuality is not discussed in general. So, the disease of the homos is not discussed.
have you ever seen rap music videos and how many boyfriends they have??? if you have then there you go now you know and if you dont then where the hell have you been threw out these years????
duh...Africa has the largest percentage of HIV/AIDS cases in the world....and ...oh my gosh...the highest % of black people...we call them Africans...if you hadn't heard.
BECUZ DIITRY MEN HU HAV AIDZ AND HIV GO TO WORLD 3 COUNTRIES E.G AFRICA AND RAPE THEM SO THEY GET AIDS.
Black people like to get freaky with it.
They are more immoral. The truth is that without immoral activity or illegal drug use, AIDS will die out within one generation.
