    "In 1953, Philip Morris commissioned the Roper organization to conduct a general survey of Americans' smoking habits. The only menthol cigarette on the survey and the only one of any importance in the early 1950s was Kool. The Roper survey showed that only 2% of White Americans preferred the Kool brand. By contrast, the survey reported that 5% of African Americans preferred Kools (Roper, 1953). This small difference in preference was successfully parlayed by Brown & Williamson executives, and later by the tobacco industry as a whole, into the 70% vs. 30% difference that we see today between Black and White menthol smokers, respectively."

    There are so many ways, both numerous and insulting, that I would like to respond to this.

    I will just leave it at this, the racist saying that the person calling them out for being racist, is actually the racist, is one of the weakest arguments of all time by racists.

    oh come on Grizz. Taken in context the comment wasn’t a threat.

    It was in response to a comment about immigrants being rapists etc... and how ridiculous that was.

    So it wasn't posted by a hacker?

    I was discussing the comment where everyone’s saying it was a threat.

    Rape wasn't mentioned until he posted it. And you didn't answer the question. Was he hacked? Was it a fake account? Or did he post it but refuse to own it?
