She can put your life in danger by physically abusing you in your relationship with the Streets, but it is the things she can trick you into doing that will kill you.

I think this has to do with the many theories people have on the HIV virus. It is widely accepted that the HIV virus is what leads to the contraction of AIDS, but it has yet to be scientifically proven, due to moral dilemmas, so there are still some people who try to deny its existence. The virus can be transmitted through sexual intercourse, so it could be passed on to someone else who you aren’t even trying to give it to. It could also be passed on through vengeance if you know you have it, and want to get back at someone you don’t like. Some African-Americans like Kanye believe it was created to wipe out blacks and gays. However, the upper class citizens blame Africa, as that is where the virus is believed to originate from. There are also the people who believe that the upper class started that rumor, just to cause controversy, so the other rich white writers has something to talk about. There are also theories on where it originated, if it came from a maternity wards, where newborn children are kept, it means they can receive the virus if their parents have it. Some people think that dead bodies were examined in a morgue, and had somehow gotten the disease and passed it on to the scientists. There are religious people who feel that gods are punishing humans with this deed “from the skies”. Hookers say that nuns are to blame, as there have been rumors from the Vatican that priest have been raping nuns, as they no they won’t have STDs like the hookers. But then nuns condemn the whores for the lifestyle. And Lupe sums this all up with “and everybody is sure”, meaning everyone has their opinion on this.
