  1. I work with youth with HIV. The majority of them are black. Some people ask me about this, and I always lie. I hate the stereotype that it’s a disease black people get. Am I just hiding it by lying though? I’m not sure what the answer is here.

    • I understand your trepidation about perpetuating certain stereotypes about Black people but if people are contracting the disease due to lack of awareness and education then we have to be truthful in my opinion.

      Also anyone who is going to be judgmental about a pandemic then I don’t think they’re compassionate individuals and I would advise you disregard their opinion. You are being a change-agent by doing the work you do. That is what is important. I want to thank you for that.
