Magic Johnson revealing his status helped and hurt some people. A lot of youth out here don't understand the importance of HIV medications and they feel as though, because Magic Johnson has so much money, he can afford health care that we do not have access to. This almost makes some people feel as though, if you are HIV positive and not wealthy, you will not have access to great care. This is not true. Magic should educate us all in more detail.
