The quickest way to get unfollowed by me on any social networking site is by joking around about AIDS/HIV. I unfollowed someone yesterday that I thought was really cool until she said someone should go back to Africa and stop bringing AIDS to the United States. Who the fuck says that? Really?
The person that said this is an African American woman in Washington, DC. Yes, Washington , DC where 1 in 20 adults are HIV positive. Here is some additional information I found on aids.gov…
- More than one million people are living with HIV in the U.S.
- One in five living with HIV is unaware of their infection.
- MSM of all races remain the group most severely affected by HIV.
- By race, African Americans face the most severe HIV burden.
- Every 9 1/2 minutes, someone in the U.S. is infected with HIV.
With information like this, it pains me to see people think it is still a game or a joke. That’s all! So if you have been unfollowed by me because of this reason, SUCK IT!
