CDC: Blacks exceeded 50% of new HIV/AIDS cases in 2007.


A report from the CDC published in August of 2009 says that blacks exceeded 50% of all new HIV/AIDS cases in 2007. The percentage is probably even higher now. Blacks account for 13% of the US population.

Overall, black men are over 7 times more likely to have HIV/AIDS than white men. Black women are over 18 times more likely than white women.

Among non-homosexual males, this disparity skyrockets. With black men who claim to have had no homosexual past nearly 20 times more likely to have HIV/AIDS than white heterosexual men.

The leading cause of AIDS among both white and black men is homosexuality. However large numbers of black men contract the disease in prison and then pass it to woman after they are released, and do not admit to homosexuality in medical surveys.

The leading causes of AIDs in both black and white women are intravenous drug use and heterosexual  sex with black men.

AIDS and femicide, the murder of a woman by a husband or boyfriend, are two of the leading causes of death for young black women.
