Why Do Blacks Smoke Menthols?
    #4230356 - 05/28/05 05:10 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I don't think I am generalizing here or anything but whenever I am around a black person that is smoking it is usually a menthol cigarette. It's been fairly consistent too. There must be some reason they smoke it. Any ideas people?

Iv noticed this also. To tell you the truth Iv never known an urban black or an urban white guy/girl that wants to be black to smoke anything other than a menthol cigarette. The only black person I ever met was in my town one day I was walking the train tracks when I was younger smoking a J with one of my buddies. (drifting off topic) She was smoking Virginians or w/e the fuck they are and drinking an Old Mil. She was pretty damn cool too. Probably around 60 years old telling us a bunch of old stories about our town and how she had the walk the tracks and pick up coal with her brothers and sisters to bring home to keep the house warm in the winter. She was definately a free spirit. Took a few hits off the J and supplied us with cigarettes the whole walk. She had to piss and the old bat so the old bat grabbed a bucket that was in the weeds off to the side of the tracks and took a piss right there in front of us.. Funny ass memories thats for sure.

You should've hit that shit when she was leaning over the bucket.

But I would guess it's purely a cultural phenoma. Maybe black people notice their black friends smoke menthols, so if they start smoking they also get a liking for menthols, and so on ad infinitum.

That's what I am thinking. Basically, somewhat of a trend I guess. Interesting.

Yeah that's what I believe also. Everyone I knew and was close to smoked regulars. When I first started smoking I did so because I was 13 years old and thought it was the coolest shit in the world to do. Watching the older kids on the corner before school puffing a cigarette. (I later found out that's not all they were puffing. :wink:) Eventually I became addicted to regulars. Slowly but surely. Iv tried smoking menthols they are not for me.

It's advertising.

The promotional materials of Lollirards (sp?) newport brand target black people. So black people smoke menthols.

Menthols are tasty, but after smoking 1 or 2 in 1 day, thats enough for me.

ahhhh i cant stand menthols.. The only menthol i am able to deal with are Marb Mild's. My ucnle used to smoke newports but switched to marb milds and I must say they are not bad at all. I can actually stomach a marb mild here and there. Ill smoke one with him if hes over just because he was like a role model to me when I was growing up. :smile: Im surprised i didnt fall into smoking menthols myself.. I just cant stand the taste personally.

i wouldn't say it's trends really, not intention ones anyway. when i started smoking i couldn't get cigarettes so i'd bum them off friends. so i got used to whatever they had, and most of them smoked newports, so that's what i smoked, then when i was able to buy cigs i started getting marlboro milds because they were cheaper and the same thing as newports. now i moved and the cigs are different here so i tried export 'a' full flavor because i know some menthol's can be really disgusting, and cheap full flavours aren't as bad, and didn't want to waste $8. still smoke the full flavors because i'm used to them and am afriad to try new ones and waste money. :shrug:

I think I see a lot of women smoke menthols too..they want fresh breath or something, I have some newports, but someone gave me some becuse he owed me a few dollars so he paid me back in smokes instead.
I dont mind them, I am a light smoker now, as long as they are not generic menthols..yukk..

I love every cigarette, I am like Dennis Leary. I fucking love to smoke man.

I prefer non-menthols over everything, but when I DO smoke them I enjoy them.....there really isn't anyting wrong with em..they are just too strong for me.

Maybe they like strong cigarettes.....
BUT, I think it is a trend/trying to be cool thing as well, it would make perfect sense.

As to advertising, I dont know about all that.  Never have seen a newport commercial or anything BUT never have I seen just straight black people smoking in their adds.  I have seen many a white man smoking the Newports.


Edit] Those smokes were Virginia Slims  Matt...hehe no big deal, I just happen to know the name. I am trivial like that  :shrug: .
