What's Happening In Your World
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention , the HIV epidemic is not the only thing that black people have to worry about.  The CDC claims that nearly half (48 percent) of all African American women between the ages of 14 and 49 are infected with genital herpes. Black women have the highest rate of infection and their rate is nearly twice as high as men.   Overall, 21 percent of all women are infected, compared with 11.5 percent of men.  For the black community, 39 percent of all African Americans are infected, compared with 12 percent for whites. There is no cure for genital herpes (herpes simplex 2), which can cause recurring sores in the genitalia and increases the likelihood of HIV transmission.  It is also related to oral herpes, or herpes simplex 1.   The CDC also says that a full 80 percent of those who have herpes have no idea that they’ve been infected. The CDC estimates that there are 19 million new herpes infections every year. You can catch oral herpes by either kissing someone or sharing a glass or utensil with the infected person.  The diseases lie inside the body in a dormant state until an outbreak occurs.  Outbreaks can be caused by a number of factors, including stress, fatigue or excessive alcohol consumption. You can catch herpes simplex 2 (genital herpes) through skin-to-skin contact with the infected area, or through unprotected oral or vaginal sex.  Many times, the person is able to pass the disease even when there is no outbreak.   The CDC recommends that you go to the doctor to get tested for all STDs, not just HIV and wear a condom with all sex partners.  It also helps to have your partner tested for all STDs as well.

    I had sex with a black woman named Shar in milwaukee who works at kohls cotperate. We dated for a month, turned me on one night, figured she was safe. Never called me after. Yup gave me herpes. I’m finna get her ass

  4. My friends were victims of false diagnoses and thousand of other women. A white doctor diagnosed them of having genital warts and having hpv. So he wanted to do a certain procedure. Well one of them had to go to college and he was not able to do it because she was in another state. But she did follow up with another doctor and he could not understand what the other doctor saw. Later the white doctor was found to be a fraud. He made up hpv and genital warts diagnosis and found himself in a lawsuit and fired. Now who do you think he reported all these cases to. The CDC

  5. The only way this can possibly be true is if they go out and test ALL black women for herpes.

  6. I guess all those single parent black families is all a conspiracy too.

    ALLAH TO THE RESCUE!

  8. To be honest I can beleave that ,People now dayz aren’t even tryin to be safe and they don’t even give a damn what they bring you,And I must say I’m suprised that less men have it then woman!! I read a couple of stories up this woman said she’s been married for 13-15 yrs honey don’t let the smooth taste fool you , cause these men are out here screwin anything and not stappin up at all,what sence dose it make to put on a rubber then turn around an eat her out anyway??????? I don’t give a damn what they look like you don’t know them.. Not really!!!! And PS if you don’t give a damn about them just leave them don’t give them a disease.

  9. You know this is ridiculous. Just say it is true, however, where are Black women contracting it from then. If we are going to tell the truth let it told in its entirety, not just half of it; all or nothing! Hell as far as I'm concerned the Tuskegee Experiment just happened yesterday!

    • nasty ass women doing each other.

    • Wow! There's a hot mess.

    • You have a good point, Teresa. Where is the link to the original research paper?

      Many of these studies use high-risk women who trade sex for money and drugs, and include black and white women as research subjects. Then they use statistics–regression analysis–to make generalized statements about the entire population.

      I don't doubt that in high-risk black women who have limited access to health resources that this could be true,but certainly not the entire population of black women in the US.

      These types of studies are used by racists whites in this country as justification for their hatred and violence towards women and men of color. I recently graduated from a biotechnology program where I had to listen to a racist professor from Texas tell the entire class that blacks were more susceptible to disease!!

      The CDC needs to provide links on their website to the original study and the methodology. The CDC is not above politics–Science in general is not above politics and the naive white posters above to sit down and go read an f***ing book about racism and science in this country. Y'all could start with: Medical Apartheid: The Dark History of Medical Experimentation on Black Americans from Colonial Times to the Present by Harriet A. Washington.

    • A lot of time the CDC will send out a survey list with a/b with every question under the sun. these survey come out a/b every six months or so. I have recive some myself. this is oneway they collect their intell. and am sure they are wired in to MD offices and clinic around the country.

    • Thanks for that enlightment and referral. I have experienced over and over the sub-standard health care that Blacks received. I've contemplated again and again from various perspectives and I always end up at the same conclusion . . . economics, and the disparities thereof.

  10. sound like their alots of Quiche eathen to me.

  11. It is helpful to us for the CDC to share growing STD rates, but I do not believe that almost 50% of us have genital herpes nor do I believe every medical center, health department, and/or hospital in the U.S. reports their STD rates to the CDC. Aside from this, growing STD rates reinforces the importance of using condoms and routine visits to an ob-gyn.

    • Good insightful post but honestly the CDC is overseen by the Obama presidency with Obama appointed officials. Their report can't be that far off and I say the Obama thing only because people are posting that the CDC is somehow a racist health organization set out to publish claims to make black people look bad.

    • Mr. Holland, if you are not a black female, a contributor to this article, a health care professional and/or affiliated with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, why are you working so hard to dispel a conspiracy theory? Also, I neither appreciate nor need for you to educate me about the CDC being a federal agency.

    • kyle, it is a political thing! OBAMA is the man! accept it on move on, trying to plant seeds concerning the ELECTION IS NOT GOING TO WORK! We as a black nation are far to intellectual for that now! we have come into the knowledge and will not recede! you shot your best shot, and i completely agree with Basimah, she said it best.

    • Wait what are you saying? I'm voting for obama and my motivation is for black women to understand problems that could be concerning that are real and not made up to do something before they suffer. I don't like this ignorance I am seeing for saying the CDC is lying.

    • like i said kyle , you shot your best shot! and you lost the battle, now try something different! you should have known better to attack a black woman in these times. we are too strong and POWERFUL.

    • I'm not sure if you've read Kyle's comments at all, but he supports Obama and black women. I'm not sure why you had to go and post something about a "battle" and being strong and powerful. Read his comments again, I think you might misunderstand.

  12. I'm a black female been married for 13 years and have been tested for hiv, cancer, clap, crabs, warts and all. Came back negative…

  13. Its kinda funny that you never hear about what white women have, hell they have sex with horses and dogs, you tellin me there nasty ASSES don't have diseases! Its always what problems Blacks have, I mean dang, get off of us!

    • You're racist and disgusting.

    • well you don't like the truth then tough luck because it is what it is. White people and other races are always dogging black people, but i bet just like i said this about your race now i'm racist, but u can say whatever you want about another race and its okay, stay from commenting on my comments if you don't like it. let someone tell a lie about a white person oh man lets start a war now or put it so the whole nation would know that this person said something against a white person! Get the fuck outta here man! If you don't like it SO! ITS THE TRUTH!

    • You are retarded. You are the one ignoring the SCIENCE and FACT put out by the CDC. Just because you don't like it and it portrays you negatively you freak out and dismiss it entirely. You have no EVIDENCE whatsoever and are just angry at the truth about it all. This is RESEARCH and a STUDY put out by an organization of over 600 SCIENTISTS. If you look at all the words I capitalized you can see that you can't dispute it whatsoever because it's been already proven and you being racist is just showing how ignorant a person who judges everyone by the color of their skin can be.

    • soo what proof do you have that this is the truth?

    • Because Majority of black women i know don't have it and guess what we get tested, and like i said y we never hear about what whites or any other race have, you tell me this since its ignorance.

    • And if its not about race then y is this blacks have this disease how about whites have this and hispanics included in this topic! Black men are sleeping with white women, alot of this happens so where you think we get it from the black men we sleep with so white woman should be included don't give me that BS, because we(women) don't do it to ourselves.

    • NEXT NEW TOPIC: Blacks make up 80% of people with hpv, that causes genital warts, this is always how it is, so don't lecture me about racism, because you don't experience it!!

    • That's good you don't anyone who does have it. You just said a majority of black women you know get tested. Guess what happens when you are tested… It is reported to the CDC as a statistic to be analyzed. The CDC also is the largest health organization in the United States and has the largest phone report system in the world. They pay many women of all colors to be surveyed and studied by doctors about any type of health related issue they may have. Please tell me why the CDC wants to lose accountability and respect for putting out false health claims to the public? Reuters news organization who published this article also is one of the largest and respected organizations in the world that has no bias by any political party involved unlike Fox news and NBC. I am sorry for insulting you but disputing this is just downright wrong and makes women who may have it not ever find out because 80% do not know!

    • disputing it isn't wrong regardless like i said they never put out anything about any other race, other than blacks, i'm just saying.

    • Thats always what i see. something that a black person have. we are not the only ones here.

    • You are on a news website directly related to black people and articles pertaining to black people mainly. Of course it is going to have articles and news that you don't like published, that doesn't make it evidence. I'm sorry but what are you claiming this entire study is wrong when you have no evidence or resource proving it is. The article isn't even just about black people it starts off in bold print stating 1 out of 6 americans have herpes simplex and merely continues on saying the black community is infected the most because of Biology. You are being racist because you are defining the entire world as either black or white people. Stop seeing people by the color and instead just as the humans we all are and I'm putting that in a nice tone as you read it in your head. We aren't different species with different DNA. We are all homo sapiens, pretty much intelligent conscious living breathing animals.

    • There makes no more since to comment towards you, and of course your gonna make what i say seem one way even though i said other races as well so your a person who only see things one way and the conversation comes to a end, don't comment back to me do yourself the favor!!

  14. ATTENTION AFRICAN-AMERICANS. This is true, the CDC does NOT make up statistics for any political reason whatsoever. It's a scary threatening statistic and you need to realize what they said also at the bottom of the article. THEY SAID "the increased rate of infection in blacks is not do to increased risk behavior but likely due to biological factors that make women more susceptible as well as the higher rate of infection within black communities."

  15. DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE PEOPLE. I HAPPEN TO LIVE IN ATLANTA AND I REMEMBER WHEN THEY WERE PLAYING THIS COMMERCIAL ON THE RADIO LAST YEAR. I ALMOST CHOCKED ON WHAT I WAS EATING BECAUSE I HAPPEN TO BE SITTING AROUND A TABLE OF MY CLOESET FRIENDS WHO ARE ALL AFRICAN AMERICAN PROFESSIONAL FEMALES WHO, BY THE WAY, ARE MAJORITY MARRIED BUT ALL OF US ARE DISEASE FREE. I FOUND IT QUITE DISTRUBING THAT THEY KEPT PLAYING THAT INSULTING COMMERCIAL 10 TIMES A DAY SO I CALLED THE CDC ON TO THE CARPET TO EXPLAIN AND GIVE PROOF OF THESE SO CALLED STATISICIS. I CAN TELL YOU THAT THEY GIVE ME THE RUN AROUND, KEPT TRANSFERING ME TO DIFFERENT DEPARTMENTS, AND KEPT ME ON A HOLD FOR OVER AN HOUR. FINALLY THEY GIVE ME A NUMBER TO ANOTHER COMPANY WHO DOES THEIR STATISTICS AND I KNOW RIGHT THEN AND THERE THAT THEY WERE SPREADING A BUNCH OF HALF TRUTHS. AFTER A COUPLE OF HOURS FINALLY I GOT DOWN TO THE ROOT OF THE SITUATION AND IT TURNED OUT THAT IT WAS A BLIND STUDY THAT THEY DID IN THIS SMALL RURAL TOWN IN COLORADO AND THATS HOW THEY CAME UP WITH THESE LIES SAYING THAT HALF OF THE POPULATION OF BLACK WOMEN HAVE HERPES. BLACK PEOPLE, LET THIS BE A LESSON, WE HAVE TO STAND UP TO THOSE WHO WANT TO SPREAD LIES AND DEGRADE OUR RACE….ESPECIALLY OUR WOMEN. WE SHOULD ALL HOLD THE CDC ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE INFORMATION THAT THEY PUT OUT AS “TRUTH”.

      • @Nilla and Teresa

        You are both correct. That so-called study was of 800 females that they said were AT RISK of getting herpes. Not even the 800 females “had” herpes!!

        Clearly someone (White)at the CDC and that White woman commenting above want to attack Black women with lies. They have an intentional smear agenda going on; and we are not fooled for one moment as to what’s going on and why.

        Sick fearful racists….

  16. I think it is true and we just need to stop bein in denial and stop playin the race card and blaming everything on racism and face the facts. How many black men dnt wanna use condoms because they say it feels better without? Yes there are SOME that do, but apparently not enough to make a difference. And how many black women fall for it? I bet u that the numbers that do outweigh the numbers that dont, and thats reality, not conspiracy, fact, not fiction

  17. Denise MKdiva Lawson

    I don't believe it either and this should call for retrack and an apology.

  18. Why is it that every deadly disease is moved more toward blacks being infected with it, sound like a conspiracy to me.

    • It is statistically much much easier to obtain accurate results for a minority group. They don't have to sample as many people and the CDC is based out of Atlanta which is a majority city of African-American citizens. It's hard and bad to believe but it's the truth and I'm sorry it's like that. The CDC has absolutely no political strings attached whatsoever, REAL scientists don't get into politics.

    • Sonia Pratt Staples-Williams

      I guess they are generalizing like a mofo. Never had any std. I guess it may be because i am mono. Wait is that not an illness. Lol

    • Sonia Pratt Staples-Williams

      It is sad my tax dollars go towards this crap of an agency. Smh

    • The CDC is one of the more reliable organizations out there concerning reporting statistics of their findings. The reason, if you actually go to their site and do some research for yourself, is a socio-economic factor. Most likely if you're posting on here you're going to be middle class or higher, such as a professional therefore having much lower chance of having an STD or genital disease. Unfortunately there are still many areas of the country with struggling minorities that are at a higher risk to this. I personally feel that it's much more of a class issue, than a race issue. Please, don't pull the race card at the drop of a hat and go read the scientific articles written on these to find the truth. We all need to get more educated on this. Also, the CDC is not an organization you want to pull tax dollars from. They do MUCH MUCH more than just doing studies on rates of genital herpes. They are the ones doing serious work on preventative care and help during times of outbreaks and the like.
