    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 relationship..so 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.

    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…

  • MyReason

    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.

  • God's Angel

    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.

    3 ways to stay disease free…
    1. stay away from black men
    2. stay AWAY from the black men
    3. STAY THE HE|| 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?

    CONDOMS WON’T KILL YOU, BUT HIV WILL!!! STFU AND PUT ON 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!

  • Panther

    Yes,I was married for a few yrs. and after my divorce I’ve been trying to get into the “dating scene” but I guess dating means We sleep together.What happened to courting?rofl
    I was thinking am I being old fashioned.so, now when I see guys smiling,I’ll smile back,Wave at me I’ll wave back….ask me from my number I’ll take theirs and if its not what i’m looking for I won’t call back……Sometimes I want to run the other way I’m trying to keep my NEWFOUND virginity for as long as I can.
    You just don’t know what people have

  • Panther

    Good for you King,not many men go get checked.Maybe will inpsire the young men in your family.

  • http://bossip GAT TURNER

    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!

    I’ve said this before & I’ll say it again, HIV/AIDS was created in a lab by someone……it’s a man made disease for the sake of POPULATION CONTROL!! HIV/AIDS is a disease that’s geared toward African Americans so that our race will become extinct. If you think about it BET has an HIV/AIDS/Wrap It Up commercial that comes on all of the time, but you’ll never see that same commercial on MTV, CMT or any other non black station because the disease wasn’t created for “them”, it was made for “us”. “They” want African American men & women to stop procreating with each other just to get rid of our race. If you think about it, there are PLENTY of white women that date black men, but you never hear about the white women having outrageous HIV/AIDS rates!! Have you ever wondered why the HIV/AIDS rate is through the roof in Africa? The reason being is because Africa is a predominantly black country & the more of “us” with HIV/AIDS, the more of “us” “they” can get rid of. I can’t believe that people haven’t caught on to “their” tricks. “They” are always reporting that black men are gay/bisexual/down low etc. etc. because they’re programming the black women to think that all black men are the same & as soon as the black woman’s brain is completely programmed, she’ll start dating/procreating outside of her race & that’s exactly what “they” want…sad, but true. I really don’t care who dates/marries whom, as long as everybody’s happy then I’m happy too, but if “we” don’t wake up soon, our entire race will be gone & that’s when you’ll start seeing EVEN MORE biracial/mixed children (I know that we’re all mixed with something). I will be glad when people wake up, take the blindfolds off & see what’s really going on in our world. The world is in bad shape & it’s NOT going to get any better, I think that we better start gaining a little bit more knowledge about what’s going on (new world order, martial law) because if we don’t we’re going to be in for a VERY RUDE awakening. We need to stop letting the media dictate our lives & stop letting them put “false” information into our minds (you get out what you put in)….knowledge is power & if you don’t have any type of knowledge, you’ll fall for anything. All of the surveys, questionnaires, articles etc. etc. that are being put out about black men/women are all a ploy to get rid of “us”, it’s all about POPULATION CONTROL!! If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything. God bless you all & don’t believe the hype *_*
