Questions to ponder...

According to this article, there is a low prevalence of bisexual behavior (2 percent) among black men in the United States. The question then becomes how can the information from the CDC support their claims that Gay, bi men are increasing the risk of HIV/AIDS in the Black community's nearly tenfold?

Is it really feasible that 2% of the African American male population is having sex with 100% of the African American females? How will this work? Let say, there are ~17 million African American men in this country and ~19 million African American women. This would equate to 340,000 men having sex with 19 million women. Do you see how bizarre the statistics from the CDC are? If the data doesn't support the claim, shouldn't the claim be thrown out?
