Quotes from Big Tobacco

Here is a piece by Zaurean, a Core Leader at SHIFT Minnesota:

“The young, the poor, the black, and the stupid.”

Who could be more foolish?

The big tobacco execs think that its you, yeah you!

The ones who have barely tasted life and yet want to have it blown right out of their bodies along with that second hand smoke they’re blowing out.

Thinking, “I’m young, i’ll live through it. I got another 35 years to go.” Not knowing that cancer can kill you way before, without you knowing you have it.

What’s young isn’t always invincible.

Who could be more foolish?

Its probably you!

Don’t have any money as it is but will buy those cigarettes pack after pack after pack.

Probably making you think that its going to take all your stress away, give you some more money, or take all your poor away.

No your poor is still there after that last drag you take and paying that 6.53 a pack is actually adding to your situation.

Who could be more foolish?

To the tobacco executives its definately you!

The ppl who’s skin is a nice smooth dark chocolate.

Yeah you know who I’m talking about.

I’m talking about my black african american race and all shades of it.

You have been stigmatized with the most problems that need the biggest relief.

The whole world is against you and nobody is there to cope with you but you good ol pal Marlboro.

They will relieve you of that heavy burden and calm you down. Marlboro knows what’s good for you.

Who could be more foolish?

Idk. who else can be tricked?

Wait wait! The stupid! That’s who!

The most clueless people out there that do not even have a clue what’s going on.

The ones that think its so cool to smoke.

Look at that guy puffin. I’m tryna get like him.

The ones that say it’s masculine and looks hella manly so I’m gonna be a “tough” guy and smoke a cigarette and be set a part from the rest.

But really you are falling right into the rest that are fooled into the big tobacco industry.

“We don’t smoke it. We just sell it. We reserve the right to smoke for the young, the poor, the black, and the stupid.”

Just guess who they’re looking for next? Go ahead take a wild guess.
