It has always fascinated me that the liberal left is against tobacco, but supports marijuana. Truth.com is one of the organizations working to eliminate tobacco from our society. I am not here to defend tobacco. I think it's someone's own business if they want to smoke. It is, however, bad for your health, and I applaud private organizations trying to bring that truth to light. I also believe marijuana is very bad for your health, dangerous to the development of young brains, and ultimately much worse than tobacco for a society. Organizations like Citizens Against Legalizing Marijuana (CALM) are bringing those facts to light.
However, this is not about tobacco and marijuana as much as it is about the ad Truth.com has been putting out about how tobacco is profiling, targeting minority neighborhoods, and more specifically, black neighborhoods. It is an interesting observation, but have they notice that another dangerous industry is also doing the same? The profiling by the other murderous industry that peddles death isn't getting the same kind of acknowledgement for their assault on the black population.
Margaret Sanger was the founder of Planned Parenthood. She was a racist, and in 1939 launched The Negro Project. Her goal was to eliminate "human weeds" and "human waste" from our society, and today, Planned Parenthood is following her lead. In New York City, more black babies are aborted, than born alive. The eugenic racism of Planned Parenthood is well documented.
From Too Many Aborted dot com:
Today, nearly 40% of all African-American pregnancies end in induced abortion...Fatherlessness and poverty are rampant. Unintended pregnancy rates in the black community continue to rise. Today, the same mouthpieces for Planned Parenthood are claiming “lack of access” while black women access abortion clinics at 5 times the rate of white women. Abortion kills more black lives (363,705) than all other causes of death combined (285,522)...Abortion, no matter the race, is a tragedy. But in the black community, it is epidemic. Mainstream media, black celebrities, health care professionals and so-called black leaders continue to shill for Planned Parenthood, while our churches (who stood against injustice during the Civil Rights Movement) are mostly silent. Regardless, the truth screams loud and clear. Under the false liberty of ‘reproductive freedom’ we are killing our very future.And, yes, Planned Parenthood targets black neighborhoods.
Death by tobacco? How about death before you can even take your first breath? Why aren't the liberal left Democrats upset about that kind of profiling? Where is the liberal left Democrat's Truth Ad about America's genocide of unborn babies, and how the abortion butchers target black neighborhoods?
