B) Two-parent families were extremely rare during the slave period. C) Black family bonds were destroyed by the abuses of slave owners, who regularly sold off family members to other slave owners.

Anyway please continue to be very loud about the fact that the AIDS epidemic isn鈥檛 over, that it鈥檚 disproportionately harmful to gay black men, and that the current administration is doing everything that it possibly can to ignore it. : @hanifleylabi The men in white are the surviving members of the original San Fransisco Gay Men's choir. The rest represent those lost to AIDS 210/17 7:47 PM ms-demeanor: greenekangaroo: september-before-a-rainfall: Jesus. There鈥檚 a reason why so many LGBT leaders from that era are women.聽 And there鈥檚 a reason why gay culture essentially had to reboot itself.聽 and there鈥檚 a reason saying聽鈥榶ou鈥檒l survive鈥 is bullshit.聽 https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/may/30/black-gay-men-aids-hiv-epidemic-america https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2017/12/29/trump-administration-fires-all-members-of-hivaids-advisory-council/?utm_term=.0b834730c8cf There is a current, ongoing HIV/AIDS crisis in gay black men. Saying 鈥渨ell we survived Regan鈥 and 鈥渨ell we survived Bush鈥 is bullshit. Maybe *you* survived, but *we* didn鈥檛. Not all of us. Not enough of us. Anyway please continue to be very loud about the fact that the AIDS epidemic isn鈥檛 over, that it鈥檚 disproportionately harmful to gay black men, and that the current administration is doing everything that it possibly can to ignore it.
