ATLANTA — Health officials estimate that 1 in 22 black Americans will be diagnosed with the AIDS virus in their lifetime — more than twice the risk for Hispanics and eight times that of whites.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/39672137/ns/health-aids/#) reported the numbers Thursday. The report says the lifetime risk is 1 in 52 for Hispanics, and 1 in 170 for whites.
Asian-Americans had the lowest lifetime risk, at about 1 in 222.
The data is not considered surprising. Earlier research has shown blacks, especially, have a high risk of HIV infection (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/39672137/ns/health-aids/#).
The estimates are based on 2007 death certificates, population figures and HIV surveillance data from 37 states and Puerto Rico. They update similar calculations reported two years ago.


One in 22? Holy cow! :scared0015: I know I'm in healthcare and should know this but I am really shocked by this number. This is for Americans, people who have access to information and free condoms!

That number is a little shocking! Sounds like Planned Parenthood and the Center For Disease Control and Prevention are not doing their job to well.

Well, I guess I should leave Planned Parenthood out of it.......they're to busy aborting babies. Ooooooh, did I just type that?:unsure-1::huh::blink::laugh:

Well, Planned Parenthood was originally founded with the goal of exterminating black people, so it's no surprise they would be of no help here.

I have heard this from others.. but never really found any "proof".

I have a hard time believing that. Slowing down the growth of people who are dependant on welfare, possibly, but not extermination.

Interesting. But when you consider the source of that page, I have to wonder what type of editing and "slants" were placed on those quotes.

Thanks for the info. I will do some more digging over the weekend.

That page was an eye-opener. Not as fanatically, but I tend to agree with some of the points. It's hard to keep giving hand outs to people (of any race) who just breed like it's their job. You just know that most of those babies are going to continue the cycle.

Exactly!

Planned Parenthood Founder, Margaret Sanger, in a letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble dated December 19, 1939, made this statement:
“We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. The minister’s work is also important and also he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation [of Eugenicists] as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Sensitive crowd here.

In general, I'm just making fun of statistics. Where the heck does one come up with that number? 4.5% of blacks will get HIV? 1.7 million blacks in the U.S. will get HIV? That just seems f'ed up when you consider estimates from UNAIDS the around 31.3 million adults and 2.1 million children were living with HIV at the end of 2008.

Another comparison - Asia contains more than half of the world's population, has FAR more poverty, rape, , etc. than the U.S. and the current estimate is 4.7 million. I find the 1/22 claim to be complete BS.
