[video] Hot 97 DJ Cipha Sounds Suspended Indefinitely for Haitian AIDS Joke

My thing is that Cipha Sounds is not the only on-air personality that has said something incredibly dumb,racist, and or stupid. My thing is when he apologizes in this video, he says it was “totally taken the wrong way”. Cipha what other way could this joke be taken except in the way it has been received across the board? For that right there he needs to be fired because he should of just admitted that he said something wrong and apologized and then shut up instead of making it seem like we did not get the joke. Sorry Cipha Sounds your career is over.

This is very alarming and should be posted on every so-called urban website that caters to the African-American audience. I have checked a bunch of them and I see absolutely no coverage. I guess what Kat Stacks is doing is more important.

California to Vote on forcing Porn Stars to wear Condoms

via LA Times

State regulators are expected to vote Thursday on a petition asking them to require porn industry performers to use condoms and to take other safety measures. The six-member California Division of Occupational Safety and Health standards board appears likely to create an advisory committee to report back on whether the law should be changed and how it could be accomplished.

The board, appointed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, has up to six months to act on a Dec. 17, 2009 petition filed by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation that seeks to change state law to require safe-sex protections for adult-film workers, including mandatory condom use and more stringent safety training and testing for sexually transmitted diseases.

Earlier this month, staff members recommended that the board create an advisory committee to consider amending the law “in order to give greater protection to employees in the adult film industry.”

Why Do Men Hate Condoms?

Fellas please chime in?

via ABC

The federal government has spent nearly half a million dollars to fund a study to find out why some men would prefer not to wear condoms during sex.

PPHOTO:Condoms. Why some Men don't like to wear them.

The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, a branch of the National Institutes of Health, has awarded a $423,500 grant to researchers at The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction.

The Bloomington, Ind., based research team will use the funding to study “barriers to correct condom use,” according to a release from the institute.

“This project aims to advance our understanding of, among other factors, the role of cognitive and affective processes and condom application skills in explaining problems with condom use in young, heterosexual adult men,” reads an excerpt of the study, which will be funded through May 2011.

But critics aren’t so sure that this is the way the government should be spending taxpayer dollars.

At least 16 previously unpublicized HIV cases in porn film performers, public health officials say [UPDATED]

A deathblow to the industry?

Los Angeles County officials released public health data this afternoon indicating that 16 previously unpublicized cases of HIV had been confirmed in adult film industry performers since 2004 when an outbreak shut down porn production for a month.

The 2004 cases — involving a male porn star, three actresses he had worked with and an unrelated case in a transsexual performer — drew intense scrutiny to safety practices in the industry.

The newly released data brings the number of known HIV cases in adult film performers to 22 since 2004, including a porn actress who tested positive late last week. At least 10 of those cases involved men who had sex with other men, according to health officials.

In all, 16 men and 5 women who worked as adult film industry performers contracted HIV between 2004 and 2008, according to Los Angeles County Department of Public Health data requested by The Times.

Between 1998 and 2003, 14 confirmed HIV cases were reported among adult film performers, according to the health department.
