It’s World AIDS Day!

    Get tested. Practice celibacy, but if that’s not for you, then practice safe sex.  The new HIV infection numbers are discouraging. Black women are more than 15 times more likely to get the disease as white women. Black women are 3 times more likely to get the HIV infection than Latino women.

    Today is World Aids Day. It gives us another chance to do our part to get rid of this  deadly epidemic in the Black Community. Get tested today, and take a friend with you. Then, tweet, text and facebook those you know to encourage them to get tested.
