B'wana Beast

The series is infamous for its portrayal of an American male savior in Africa; the character's first name, "Bwana", is a Swahili word for leader or "master".
I used to refer to Biden as "Corvette Joe" but "B'wana Beast Biden" has mucho more machismo.

yeah and why not just ban cigs altogether if we're worried about the health risks?

Cause people will go ape****, that's why.

But banning menthols is gonna piss people off too, just less so. They're scared to go all in and ban cigs so they are just gonna make things less convenient for smokers and hope that gets people to stop.

On the bright side I'll never have to worry about bumming the wrong kind of cigarette. Menthols really are nasty.

I always hated them too. Like smoking a thin mint except it's not slightly delicious.

I think you explained it very clearly.

It's a more toxic cigarette marketed towards black people like they're trying to make money off of hurting black people.

The ban is kind of stupid in the grand scheme of things but if they don't get why a black health organization would want to ban it they're kind of dumb. I'd push a campaign to inform people rather than a ban but that's me. Not just on the racist marketing of that cigarette but also the way they manipulated women to smoke through the feminist movement.

I'm honestly not aware of whatever racist marketing you're referring to. I very rarely see cigs advertised except at gas stations whether it has the brand and the price.

In the grand scheme of things I truly don't give a **** whether menthols are banned just like I dont give a **** whether ar15s are banned.... I just think it's bad politics and will make him less popular.

He's obviously talking about it's historical marketing but if you really want to know then google it, bitch.

Yeah, it is stupid though. How are we supposed to have a working class revolution with out assault rifles and menthols? With hand guns and Virginia Slims looking like a bunch of pansies?
