What I was interested in was the takeaway that black kids are behaving just as safely as other kids because even though they have way more sex they use condoms and get tested for AIDS. For one thing, condoms reduce the likelihood of the spread of disease, they don't eliminate it. For another, if you go have sex and then go get tested for AIDS, it could be too late for you already. This idea that black kids are not taking risks because they use condoms when they're promiscuous would be funny if it were in a fictional setting, but it's really sad. We've sold the black kids on condom use, and this is what happened.
