African Americans are more likely to be incarcerated than any other race, even if the same crime is committed. This high rate of incarceration changes the sexual behaviors and makes African Americans engage in relations that increase the risk for HIV. Constantly being imprisoned traps blacks in communities with high prevalence of HIV, by reducing employment and increasing poverty. It also facilitates concurrent relationships among both men and women, and makes males more susceptible to sexual behaviors in prison, where the HIV risk is greatest, due to the fact the MSM blacks are the group with the most HIV diagnosis in history. The incarceration is one of many driving principles behind the HIV/AIDS conspiracy, which the government has made no actions to disprove.

Adolescents have contracted AIDS by injecting heroin in their bloodstream as part of brotherhood tradition. In the movie, Ruslan represents an example of how AIDS infiltrates the society, as he will inject heroin and share the same needle with Katrina his partner (Bilheimer, 2003). Ruslan indicated that 40% of his generation (aged 15–19 years) tend to share the same needle as part of the culture.
In the reading by Peter Redman, he raises the argument that the ‘AIDS carrier” becomes the central representation of the HIV epidemic and how the representations of HIV cannot be narrowed down to one cause. In addition, the ‘AIDS carrier’ is represented as monster and the carrier spreads HIV from the deviant subpopulations to the mainstream. Also, AIDS has been connected to social and moral issues and singles out groups like gay men, black people, and young single women. These groups are then viewed as diseased subpopulations and that causes others to feel disgust and panic. The heterosexual men are then afraid to have physical or emotional contact with men in general and that’s why boundaries of heterosexual masculinity were produced.
