    World Aids Day

    World’s AIDS Day, which was Dec. 1, may have come and gone. This startling statistic remains a reality, however: African Americans are only 13% of the U.S. population, but account for 44% of HIV infection cases.

    Activist Rae Lewis-Thorton spoke with Roland Martin on NewsOne Now about the problem. “There’s a need for continued national conversation,” Lewis-Thorton said. “Unfortunately, when [World AIDS Day]  passes we wind up in the situation where we are seeing increased growth in the disease, [even] when it’s not the ‘sexy’ campaign of the moment.”

    Hear what else she had to say, in the clip below.
