The Daily Caller reported on Saturday that the CDC believes the causes of HIV in the South could be racism and homophobia. I would have thought it was often the behavior of the afflicted myself.
The CDC document notes that The South now experiences the greatest burden of HIV infection, illness, and deaths of any U.S. region, and lags far behind in providing quality HIV prevention and care to its citizens.
Unsurprisingly, the highest numbers are in the urban areas [that Democrats have ruined] and it varies by race. African Americans are severely affected by HIV in the South, accounting for 54 percent of new HIV diagnoses in 2014.
They didn’t mention that 55% of AfricanAmericans live in the South.
They came up with the reasons for this and personal responsibility wasn’t one of them.
Income inequality, poverty, and poorer health outcomes have long been more widespread in southern states, compared to the rest of the nation.
They did, however, suggest, without any real evidence, that it was due to racism and homophobia because there are a lot of bigots in the South.
Cultural factors may also play a key role. Issues such as homophobia and transphobia, racism, and general discomfort with public discussion of sexuality may be more widespread in the South and can lead to higher levels of stigma, which may limit people’s willingness to seek HIV testing, care, or prevention services. These challenges can also limit access to accurate sexual health information, which people need to protect themselves from infection.
Therefore, it’s the white heterosexuals fault and we need to go full-blown socialist, starting with more wealth redistribution.
More broadly, to address disparities in southern states it will be important to work toward unfettered access to quality health care, particularly among people of color, gay and bisexual men, and transgender people. This could be accomplished through a variety of methods, including addressing issues related to insurance coverage, co-pays, and deductibles.
There will never be enough money spent. While they pepper their recommendations with normal suggestions such as better education and dispersing condoms, they always get to targeting the opposition and demanding money.
This is Socialism and what eight years under Hillary will be like baby.
Last month The Daily Caller reported that the CDC claimed that the high HIV rate–28 percent–among transgender women (biological men) is due in part to the “stigma” faced by transgender people.
None of the Democrat voting base is responsible for their own actions – they are victims. Anything that goes wrong is due to climate change, racism, Islamophobia, transphobia, or all of the aforementioned.
The Democrats can’t ever rectify problems because they make everything political and assign the wrong diagnosis and the wrong remedy to most problems. This is just more of the identity politics they like to play to divide all of us.
This is insane!
