Not Wanted: Disease-Ridden Blacks

If online personal ads are any indication, most gay men, regardless of race, are looking for WHITES AND LATINS ONLY who are "clean and disease-free."

That's definitely not who I am. I'm a black man living with AIDS.

Imagine seeing a personal ad that appeals to you, only to look deeper and find out the other person has automatically pre-judged you to be unacceptable due to your skin color and/or a virus they don't have to acquire.

Happens with the majority of personal ads I come across. Still, I'd Rather Be Me.
