I already knew that, and I didn’t even need to run an evolutionary biology lab at a major university.
How did I know it?
Two words that very literate St. Louisans know:
Since he died in May 1969, and now it is known he started showing symptoms as early as 1966, and it wasn’t until 1987 that it was proven that AIDS complications did him in, it means that the hypotheses in this article need to be questioned, because they are all after 1966. Since he had never left St. Louis, especially not for the big cities full of gays which we’re supposed to think was the big vector transmitters in the next decade, this means that AIDS existed in the black ghettos of St. Louis no later than 1966 and probably earlier.
The commonly accepted official theory is that the pathogen made the jump from chimpanzees to humans in the early 20th century, but then we’re also told that before AIDS spread to the United States, it was already present in black Africans and black Caribbeans. The problem is this: How would it have been transmitted from black Africans to black Caribbeans in the early 20th century? I am not aware of any significant population movement between black Africa and the black Caribbean in the early 20th century, either one group or the other going one or both ways, or some other group of people going back and forth between the two places. Are we to think that there were enough gay white men from the United States going back and forth between the Congo and Haiti to have sex with men? Did Congolese gay men go to Haiti to have sex with Haitian men in the 1920s? Did Haitian men go to the Congo to have sex with Congolese men in the 1920s? Crazy, yes, but that’s what we have to believe in order to believe the official story about when and how this pathogen spread from chimps to humans and then among humans.
Try this on for size: Negro peoples already had AIDS when they were taken as slaves from west Africa and transported to wherever in the New World. That’s the only sensible explanation for blacks in both Africa and the Caribbean having AIDS at the times in the 20th century when it has been proven that both groups were so infected. It also means the (documented*) SIV to HIV jump happened at least centuries ago, not one century ago. The only open question is the precise mechanics of the SIV to HIV jump. Was it a matter of chimps biting humans, or humans eating chimp meat? Or was it something a little more taboo?
* – What I mean by that is that we know for sure that humans of some sort first got the disease from chimps. The reason I state that is because there’s a fashionable theory among some of us that the UN cooked up AIDS in a lab for the purposes of population control (either general population control or black population control, depends on who is telling you the theory). Of course, that “effort” has obviously been so successful.
