- By Bossip Staff Categories: Get Well, Hip Hop Wired, News


With the United States breaking the 250 million mark with diagnosed STD’s, it is important to be cautious what you are doing and who you are doing it with.

Although that statistic may not shock you, one that will is that close to 5%of these STD rates are diagnosed from children 13 and under.

    everyone havin a baby now days, cheating on spouse with jumpoffs im not surprise. It aint just the regular folks or famous folks, disease dont discrimnate. Wrap it up ppl.

  • tellthetruth

    Yes, please wrap it up. Don’t get caught up in the lust that you may shorten your future by not taking precaution.

    I would have never guess NJ & Texas. I am NOT surprised that NY is #1. I get tested once a year and I am not even in a I know they are not talking about me…(I work in NYC, live in NJ)

    • VirgoJewel

      Your surprised about NJ? Really? Maybe its because of people I know, but I have heard the WORST/SCARIEST stories about men and women from Trenton and Camden.

  • buoyant

    Ny is so small and its #1 wow!

  • Caramel Cat™

    Yeah, this list reflects entire states, but cities are a different story. It’s interesting how my state is not on this list at all, but the city I live in has made the top 5 ranking for at least the last 5 years or so…

    People PUHLEEEEASE wrap it up!! in D.C 3 out of 5 black people are HIV positive. It’s probably not on here because D.C isn’t a state, but the numbers that they have on here also aren’t racially specific and the black/hispanic community is getting hit the hardest. This is a wake up call. If you’re gonna do it, make a conscious effort to do it right. It’s not worth dying for.

    2 reasons the HIV/Aids rate is so high:

    #1 – people don’t know they have it, and they keep spreading it.

    #2 – people won’t get tested because of fear. And if you don’t have health insurance, they can’t afford treatment. So I guess they ask themselves, why bother getting tested?

    Music artists should throw concerts where the only way you can get entrance to the concert is to get tested. Since so many artists sing about sex, why don’t those artists throw a “Know your Status” concert?

    Sorry for all the typo’s in my previous post y’all. I’m trying 2 cook some lima beans & potato salad for my guy.

    • ThickLikeCornbread

      Lima beans & potato salad. YUCK! Srry

  • Chad

    I knew my state would be on this list, Georgia, stand up, and then sit down

    3 ways to stay disease free…
    1. stay away from black men
    2. stay AWAY from the black men

    Stay away from the black men, they will infect you, every time you see them cross the street asap. If you stay away from those thing you will be safe and happy, and not infected with this horrible misfortune.

  • Sabrina The Teenage Bytch

    58 percent of the people who tested hiv positive in Pennsylvania are African American….smfh.

    Can Black people please put on a f_cking condom? wtf is wrong with you retards? you know the black community is getting hit the hardest by this epidemic and you still refuse to wear a condom?


    And another thing stop blaming hiv/aids on “downlow” men. I know a lot of sistas on here like to resort to that excuse but it is getting tired. Anyone can give you hiv/aids, it isn’t a gay disease. More straight people have that shyt than gay people.

  • ThickLikeCornbread

    Not at all surprised at this list, I am a lil surprised LA & Mississippi werent on there tho

  • http://TLBaby I gets down like that

    LOL @ ThlckLikeCornbread: girl those were sentiments exactly, but that was strictly HIS request. He is as country as they come. I like both lima beans & potato salad, just never thought of eatting em together. I put some neckbones in the lima beans. Girl he sitting over on the couch

  • http://TLBaby I gets down like that

    OOPPS, my bad I sent that previous post off too early. But yeah he loves food like that. And damn why he gotta be from the Chicago, I saw that Illinos made the list. I’m tempted to get down w/him, but he gone have to wait just a lil longer. I learned a big lesson, a transsexual friend of mine was diagnosed with HIV/AIDES a few years ago, and damn near went crazy. Please be careful brotha’s & sister’s!

    ah yes another soldier with a outstanding kritical mind!

    @blakk sheep,

    I look at this stuff as wierd too, just like msn posting those credit card debt deals like “if you are $55,023.76 in credit card debt call us” Im like this shyt has nothing 2 do with me!

    On another note, our young blakk girls/woman are infected the most, im here in Arizona and there is a whole block that is infected with HIV/aids….str8 up the whole block is registered! BIO-chemical warfare at its finest!
