Black Heterosexual Masculinity And AIDS

Jim Castelli writes, "James Carroll's Boston Globe editorial, when stripped of the disingenuous disclaimers, essentially says that black heterosexual men are the cause of AIDS. While purporting to not blame males, Carrol presents thinly veiled stereotypical generalizations of black male sexuality reminiscent of "To Kill A Mockingbird" while absolving women of any role in the spread of AIDS. The demonization of gays which Carroll strongly asserts was wrong two decades ago is now being replaced by the demonization of heterosexual men and boys. It is as if he is subtly suggesting that the safest of all solutions would be to eliminate male heterosexuality."
