When NaturallyMoi.com released an article stating that the Center for Disease Control and Prevention said that nearly half of all black women were infected with herpes, I was intrigued by the responses that I saw. At least half of the reactions were negative attacks toward the authors for even reciting information from the CDC, as if they’d worked overtime to paint a negative portrayal of black women.
I was even attacked for sharing the article on my Facebook page. Somehow, by citing information that I felt to be a critical public health alert, I was somehow conspiring with “the man” to make black women look bad. Sorry, but I was trying to protect my daughters from a world that is designed to destroy them. I believe what the CDC has to say, because I’ve seen too much evidence to support the conclusions.
