Did you Know????

Did you know that 80% of Black Women that are infected with HIV got it from Heterosexual sex? Did you know that African American women in 2005 account for 67% of HIV diagnoses among females? Did you know African American women were accounted for 51% of all HIV infections in the 31 states that require testing.. At this rate sisters and brothers are slowly dieing off. Do you feel what I'm saying?
Ladies please protect yourself. Please get tested. If your single when meeting someone new make sure you and the new partner have an aids test TOGETHER before sleeping with him. USE a condom. Who can we really trust these days? Almost everyone I know has been cheated on, some consistently by their partner/spouse/husband. Not to offend anyone, but if it hasn't happened to you then I'm sure its happened to someone you know.
Please don't be oblivious to what HIV is doing to our community.. He/she maybe fine and cute a prince or princess charming when you 1st meet him or her, but guess what they could have something you don't want. HIV/Aids. Yes I know we all have to die and will die some kind of way, but who wants to die a dreadful slow death of HIV/AIDS. Get tested protect yourself. Even if your married! No one is safe from this. Marriage doesn't stop anyone from stepping out. Hope I don't offend anyone from saying that, but its true and we all know it. So get tested even if your married.
A good book to enlighten you on this topic and how cruel and mean some people who are infected with this disease and purposely infect others is "Faith Under Fire, Betrayed by a Thing Called Love," by Lajoyce Brookshire.
I want to see the numbers of HIV infections drop in the African American (other communities too) community not continue to rise...
