The motivation is that the poors can't think for themselves and need the rich to do it for them.

not even

it's a small victory after 10 years of activist work lobbying the FDA to remedy a little bit of harm done by massive corporations to the black community

it also does not criminalize menthol cigs, like, off the street...the FDA has no authority there

But basically the policy is to ban menthols cause those are the cigs preferred by black people on average? Is that the basic logic?

at some point one of you guys are going to have to run at least a Google search on this

menthols are proven more likely to hook young smokers and are probably a bit more toxic

I got curious about a year ago as to why people smoke the cig brands they do

I don't doubt what you say but this still smacks of Bloomberg banning large sodas.

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.
