BOSTON (AP) - The HIV infection rate has doubled among blacks in the United States over a decade while holding steady among whites - stark evidence of a widening racial gap in the epidemic, government scientists said Friday.

Other troubling statistics indicate that almost half of all infected people in the United States who should be receiving HIV drugs are not getting them.

There is a more troubling issue with this increasing disparity between blacks and whites. That is the coverup by democrats of their contribution to the crisis to begin with. If they had not actively sought to interfere with the use of vectoring when HIV-AIDS first appeared, the disease might not have gained so strong a foothold here in America. Based on the lie that attempts to control the disease were politically motivated attacks on the gay and drug using communities, democrats spent their energies subverting health officials for poltical gain. It is ironic that one of the strongest support groups of the democrats, the black community, is now paying the price for this attitude. Ironic, but horribly sad.
