    The title of this thread is how activists and others justify spending millions of dollars teaching our kids in school about sex; Instead of giving kids a license to have sex (free condoms), they 'should' be telling our kids; emphatically, to NOT have sex..

    Good luck,
    By far the majority of people with aids today are blacks and all the money in the world won't make a difference in trying to educate them.

    The statistics are frightening: According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 50 Black men, 1 in 160 Black women, and 1 out of 3 young Black gay males are infected with HIV, numbers nearly on par with infection rates in South Africa. In 2003, blacks, though only 12 percent of the population in this country, accounted for 50 percent of the new AIDS cases. Black females between the ages 25 and 44 are more likely to die of AIDS than any other illness.

    Infection rates among the elderly—rarely thought of as sexually active—are also growing. And in prison, where the majority of the population is minority, the rate of confirmed AIDS cases is eight times higher than in general society, with the number of confirmed AIDS cases increasing every year since 1995. An "HIV in Prisons and Jails" report from 1999 found that 2.3 percent of state prison inmates nationwide are HIV-positive.

    For Black men who have sex with men, the rate of new infections is more than five times higher than it is for white men, spiking up to 15 percent, compared to less than 3 percent for white men.

    an important thing to realize in that article is 'the developing world'. Thats not america, thats developing nations in africa, mid-east, and asia. We already hear weekly stories about baby rapes in africa due to the 'aids-virgin' myth.

    Aids is just the earth purging itself of the growing human virus that ails it.
