This story was so powerful to read. I currently work with the HIV community in Philly. As I was reading the story I began thinking about how some of the same issues can be seen across our bridge in Camden. It's unfortunate that these disparities exist and I work to change them. Services need to be bought to the communities that need them the most. The early activism that united community across color lines should be remembered, HIV doesn't discriminate. Also blacks and latinos fought too

In the history of HIV, the blacks, latinos refused to support us in the struggle in the early days of the 1980s, ACT UP, activism, marching, protesting CDC, etc We got no support from the minorities because they claimed that HIV did not affect their community at that time. Also their churches preach hate against our life style & they do not support gay civil rights as civil rights only applies to blacks according to them. The public is tired of the epidemic!

Ed Byrom‘s comment that “Most positive people in SF are educated and wealthy white men, and they have the power and privilege and sense of entitlement of white men” was not only an ignorantly racist comment, but it’s just plain UNTRUE! Why would POZ AIDSMeds print such a racially inflammatory remark that creates nothing but division and hatred? Maybe a racial double standard is at work? It even violates POZ AIDSMeds own posting rules!! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME!

My name is Eleanor Taite I am a patient of Dr. Scott. I love my doctor the Lord could not have blessed me with a more caring compassionate doctor than him. This comment is to say that Dr. Scott has help me over come a lot of the obstacles of being infected with this disease. He goes the extra mile to help those who are undeducated of the disease get educated. He always keeps his patients informed on new types of treatments and studies. Thanks Dr.Scott for just being a doctor who cares.
