I thought it would've been higher. It's estimated that 50% of African Americans have some sort of STD(mostly Herpes Simplex II).

It's very sad...let's take the next $130 Billion we were going to give to AIG and put it towards AIDS reaserch instead. It's astonishing we have not done more to fight it when we look at what it's done across the world, expecially Africa, but even in our own country.

why put money towards finding a cure and end the problem, when you can make money off the drugs that prolong the survival rate of the disease. welcome to the world of pharmacutical giants.
