These woman were active participants in immoral and reckless unprotected sex, just like Magic. Why are they victims and Magic the villain?

LOL. Where's the satellite dish going to be pointed at? Satellites from Russia and the Middle East? Good company you will share. Maybe one day (though it's unlikely all around), you can come into the 21st century alongside those cultures.

Are you sure all of them were women? And active? How does a man get HIV from a woman?

You're either joking or daft.

You know what sucks about the Internet, like really sucks? In the real world, everybody knows that Donald Sterling is borderline insane, a classic psychopath and a deplorable racist whose documented history of virulent, willful racism goes back long before he finally got nailed on tape. And most people love Magic Johnson and respect the tremendous awareness he's brought to the HIV problem -- but even those who don't love Magic Johnson don't hate him, either; they simply don't think about him. On the Internet, though, people with extreme minority views that are anathema to the majority of American society get equal weight. You'd expect this sort of thing on, say, Stormfront, but it's unfortunate to see it on a mainstream website such as this one.

This, more than anything, is what has killed American discourse since the mid-'90s.

Oh, by the way, not saying this is true, but there are plenty of people out there who believe Michael J. Fox's serious cocaine habit in the '80s caused his highly unusual early-onset Parkinson's. But of course, Michael J. Fox is a white guy, so I guess we can still be sympathetic toward him and admire his activism since his diagnosis.

African tramsmission and American trasmission are quite different I do believe. If I'm not mistaken, relatively speaking, very few hetero men get HIV from vaginal intercourse in America.

Did the NAACP think that? Did those that accepted charitable donations think that? Did the players and coaches that cashed his checks think that?

My guess is that it's because Tiger is half-white/Asian, so therefore he didn't get the full immunity from moral indiscretion that people of 100% black ancestry enjoy.

More ignorant, racist bullsh*t from you. Magic announced he had HIV in 1991. Tiger's scandal happened in 2009. The level of privacy that celebrities have in their personal lives changed a great deal in those 18 years. Right or wrong, that's just how it is. These days, the personal lives of celebrities are publicly displayed for all to see. It was not like that 2 decades ago. And it has nothing to do with race. Some of you are so obsessed with trying to demean black people, it's just pathetic. You're so blinded by your own ignorance and bigotry that you're practically foaming at the mouth in your zeal to post these idiotic comments, no matter how false or ridiculous your claims are.
