One in Four Women in Teens Have S.T.D.s, Study Finds
just as racist as our prison system, right?

If you consider the root cause is probably poverty and the cause of that poverty, then yes.
so the richer someone is, the fewer opportunities for poor judgments they make?
edit: so maybe STDs are classist?
I get the link between crime and poverty but STDs and poverty?
The link is STD's and boredom. If they could afford a PS3, they wouldn't be having sex.
My 20yo WT, slut, step-sister has jungle/latino fever. According to her, contraception is taboo among that crowd. Seeing how she has 2 kids (and no hubby/bf), I have no reason to doubt her.
yomama's so poor she can't afford free condoms.
Link poverty and education = STD.
active duty mil service for the trifecta
So if poverty/education is the driving factor how come Hispanic teenagers are closer to whites in rates of STDs (around 20%) eventhough their poverty rates are similar to blacks (22%)?
plymouth rock didn't land on them
My ex certainly was.
Oh, sorry, thought you said 'classless'. Nevermind.
Poverty rates and race does not mean that those races are geographically distributed the same way. I'd bet that the average black child living in poverty is in a poorer school district than the average poor hispanic child.
That's cuz the hispanic kid's mom is the maid for the white richers.
i wonder if that's b/c they live closer to jobs? does this then mean that whitey favors hispanics for employment, or that blacks are less ambitious, or something else?
so what's the major factor in a successful school district?
what makes kids want to regularly attend & be involved?
apply the answers & i bet you'd solve more than just high rates of STDs
Not too long ago whitey didn't let blacks live or work where they wanted to. Hispanics had the choice to move here or not so they could at least move somewhere they could work.
i understand & agree there are "established" communities which reflect pre-civil rights act settlements, but in the time since we've seen a surge in hispanic population, not entirely due to childbirth.
but for some reason, hispanics have chosen in much higher numbers to integrate.
are hispanics just more optimistic & less prone to believing stereotypes about themselves?
Parental involvment FTW.
So an area with a desegregated school system should buck the trend reported? Especially one that had been desegregated in excess of 30 years right?
No, I'm correlating district wealth not current segregation. A wealthy minority school district should buck the trend.
What is your explaination?
i'm a little curious about this:
was the research done in a blighted area, or did it also include exurbia? can't find the original report, which i hope has the sampling method used. extrapolating 4+ degrees of magnitude may be overreaching, especially when behavior is in play
Seems like a bold claim. Might be true, but I would need to see that backed up or better defined. Certainly by virtue of language barrier, Latin communities have a considerable hurdle to overcome to integration that black communities don't.
I was sure this was going to show up here with the headline "Teenage girls suddenly not as hot as they once were"...
while in fact, they're a bit "hotter" (it burns!!)
Statistics are inherently flawed, they can be skewed and pitched to suit the special interest commisioning the work. I will never put any faith in them. At least 80% of the time I wont.
Maybe Hispanics have a tighter family structure, more faith based teaching (Mostly Catholic?) and are taught personal responsibility?
Dont ask me about root causes...all you ten pound brain guys already fixed all the social ills.
Does Maury Povich know about this??
Who's my STD's Daddy???
I'm too busy thinking of ways to torture stoney to really get into this.
I just think that there is a disconnect in the family structure, moral teaching, motivation or something that is occurring in the black community that is major cause of this problem. To say that the Hispanic community has some leg up in areas of income, education or standing with whitey just doesn't seem to ring true. So instead of focusing on obvious inequities with whites, I'd be looking at what the Hispanics are doing to make some inroads.
Of course those are incredible generalizations but in my gut something is there.
Now back to f'ing with Stoney.
Don't see where you're going with this El-Stinko. Is it the "black women are all slags" angle? If you dismiss the explanation that it's to do with poverty and upbringing what are you left with?
you know me: i'm just shooting ping-pong balls out of my twat
I used to work fora statastician , they can make numbers say just about anything they want them to.
I think that is a Major reason right there, you see much more of a Family unit in teh hispanic population.
I'm guessing the free condoms are only made to fit whitey.
More likely to be medicine balls I reckon.
what he said she said
so? yomama's so poor she can't afford even a dream of economic stability, bish!
SlapheadMofo wins the prize for the most accurate, succinct statement about the causes behind these statistics. Poverty is part of the problem. But some poor kids still have parents that are able and/or willing to be involved. Kids need role models and guidance, whether from their parents, mentors, siblings or others.
