“President Bush’s call to create an Africa Command is a dangerous step towards the further militarization of the continent. This is a tangible step towards hazardously and formally extending his ‘war on terror’ to the continent of Africa.”

Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice Foreign Policy, Race, and the New American Century

Reviews: Lusane analyzes the impact of race on U.S. foreign policy by examining how former Secretary of State Colin Powell and current Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice have constructed current policy. He argues that African Americans have a long history of participating in U.S. foreign policy and that blacks serving in foreign-policy posts in previous administrations have embraced their racial identities and stressed racial equality in the world. This, he writes, was owing to the historical racism experienced by blacks in the United States. According to Lusane, Powell and Rice have not embraced their racial identities unless doing so has promised to advance the Bush administration’s agenda; instead, both champion the idea of individualism. This break with tradition has upset many in the African American community….Recommended.

Racial/Ethnic Disparities in Diagnoses of HIV/AIDS — 33 States, 2001–2005
Black gay men are at the apex of African Americans at risk for HIV/AIDS, according to CDC data. Black women are 20 times more likely to be diagnosed with HIV than white women and black men are twice as likely to become HIV-positive as black women. Of the 58,287 black men diagnosed with HIV between 2001-2005, 30,154 were gay and bisexual, according to the report  (MMWR. 56(9), March, 9 2007).  Centers for Disease Control report on the state of HIV/AIDS in the African American community.  Their report in the  March 9, 2007 56(9) indicates that we are loosing the war on HIV/AIDS.   Although we account for a paltry 13% of the US population we shoulder a disproportionately higher rate of HIV/AIDS diagnosis, 50.5%.  We are loosing the war.  What will you do to stop the spread of HIV? Get tested.
