    Dont need no white man to be your enemy, us as black people do it all by ourselves. Smoking is bad for the health anyway. It is also a source of revenue for the white man’s coffers. Whites produce to enable blacks to consume.

    I mean why even bother banning something that makes the federal government money. The government is so dumb.

    Menthols cheaper in black communities. Have you ever seen the price of a pack of Newports lately and they are not cheaper just because it’s a black neighborhood because I’ve been told the same story about the price difference by several different store owners

    I’m a smoker. Have been for many years. It’s one of the shittest habits in the world.

    In Singapore they have raised the smoking age from 18 to 21 over 3 years. Increasing it by a year every year. I guess they are trying to “phase” it out. Create a generational gap, since data shows you’re far more unlikely to take up smoking later in life. I wonder if it will work.

    The late Chancellor of Germany, Helmut Schmidt, was famous for smoking menthol cigarettes. They got banned in Europe when he was about 94 so he bought a stockpile to have enough to continue smoking till he turns 100. He died age 97.

    So now black people have to buy more expensive cigarettes? It’s just a flavor, it not going to stop them from smoking! When your favorite flavor of any type of product is not available at the store you just buy the next best thing especially if you’re addicted to it. This is just another example of the government saying black people can’t make sound decisions for themselves. I thought this was supposed to be a free country.
