As of 1999, Baptists made up an estimated 42% of the population, Roman Catholics 34%, and Episcopalians 17%. In others, young people may leave school knowing virtually nothing about HIV and AIDS. 36 In 2014, 26 states stated that abstinence needed to be ‘stressed’ in HIV education in school, and only 22 states mandated there to be sex education in schools. 37 This is despite the fact that a 2013 CDC survey showed that 47% of high school students have had sex, 34% had sex in the past three months, and of these, 41% had not used a condom during sex. 38 To date, the government has channelled over $1.5 billion into abstinence-only education programmes – a large bulk of this between 1996 and 2009. 39 In his 2009 budget, Obama made a pledge to replace abstinence-only education with funds for more comprehensive sex education. 40 Three-quarters of the budget on abstinence-only education was eliminated, with $190 million being made available for comprehensive approaches to sex education. 41 A study by the CDC showed that 91.5% of all new HIV infections in the USA in 2009 were transmitted from people who were not in medical care, including those who did not know they were infected. 42 In response, in December 2014, the USA released ‘Recommendations for HIV Prevention with Adults and Adolescents with HIV in the United States’. 43 These guidelines recognise the benefits of early treatment for a person living with HIV, but also for prevention.

Measures to prevent use of illegal force by police against protected groups. During a meeting of the Second Continental Congress, on June 11, 1776, they chose five people to write a document that would become the Declaration of Independence. They started early in the morning and raked and dug and raked some more, breaking up the hard ground so it would be ready for planting. We cannot forget that in many American states it is a crime for a white person to marry a Negro on the racist theory that Negroes are “inherently inferior as an immutable fact of Nature.” The whole institution of segregation, which is training for killing, education for genocide, is based on the Hitler-like theory of the “inherent inferiority of the Negro.” The tragic fact of segregation is the basis for the statement, too often heard after murder, particularly in the South, “Why I think no more of killing a n----r, than of killing a dog.” We petition in the first instance because we are compelled to speak by the unending slaughter of Negroes.
