The Biden regime is proposing a ban on menthol cigarettes. Why? Because they believe that black people in America aren’t as smart as others and can’t figure out that menthol cigarettes are addictive and may lead to serious health issues. Much like the pressure Democrats are placing on states to remove voter ID qualifications because they believe black people don’t have the mental capacity to figure out how to get a photo ID, the Biden administration’s nanny-state is coming to the rescue of helpless black Americans in the name of racial equity.
From the Daily Mail: The Washington Post reported the anticipated move Wednesday, which would set off a process with the Food and Drug Administration that could take years, but would be applauded by antismoking and civil rights groups.
They have pressured the federal government to make the move because they say the tobacco industry has aggressively targeted black communities when pushing the mint-flavored smokes.
