Go on You Tube and you’ll find a multitude of hateful men claiming black women are walking, talking sexually transmitted disease carriers. The want to give the world the impression that black women are promiscuous whores hellbent on spreading plague throughout the community and beyond. The truth of it is much different. But before we get to that, let’s take a look at this piece of news:

This man is an absolute monster. But he’s hardly an anomaly.

Atlanta now has HIV rates that rival third world African countries. There is really no benefit to black women to deny the truth of what’s really going on. Does this mean I’m telling you that white men can’t give you diseases? Don’t be silly. No matter who you are with it’s imperative you protect yourself. Demand condoms EVERY time until you and your partner get a full battery of tests and you know that they both of you are exclusive.
