    @Baxcel -- you perfectly illustrate the need for "Black AIDS Awareness". After reading the article, you still want to pretend that the HIV situation is not different in the Black community. This is not blame or criticism, it is FACING THE TRUTH, so things can be made better. I understand that facing truth, post-slavery, is still hard, but it is causing deaths to keep pretending.
