Earlier this week, Sherri said this about the spread of HIV:
Luckily, there were folks to correct her, but it still bothers me that this belief is still alive and being broadcast on TV.
Sherri may not know this, but her statements could continue this sad notion that "down low" Black men are completely at fault. There are many factors to this problem and with her national TV platform, she can change those beliefs. I don't believe Sherri meant any harm, but her statements are quite damaging.
So, I hope somebody sat down and talked with her. Sherri needs to understand and know the power of her voice.
