I be positive, they ain't touching me with no needle.

Grace, Bruce's wife is going to donate some blood at a blood drive.
BRUCE: Creepy. Needles. Yuck.
GRACE: Well, they need my blood. I have a very rare blood type. I'm A. B. -positive.
BRUCE: Really? I'm I. B. -positive. I be positive, they ain't touching me with no needle.

Bruce Almighty, movie

As I know, there's no type blood as "I. B. -positive". So it's from the beginning was supposed to mean "I be", right?

And the whole red pharse is a slangy way of saying "I will never allow them to take my blood", right?

Thanks.

EDIT: but I don't understand what "I be positive" part means.
