HOW MUCH DOES BIG TOBACCO LOVE BLACK YOUTH?

So much so that, in a number of cities, they've been advertising up to 10 times more in black neighborhoods than in other neighborhoods!

10 TIMES!

It's not by accident. It's profiling!

Big Tobacco needs new customers... so they target our neighborhoods to bait our young and keep them hooked for life.

Don't let them get away with it! They need to STOP targeting our youth. They need to STOP profiling us!

CALL IT OUT!

Most don’t know this type of profiling is taking place. Make sure your alderman knows what Big Tobacco is up to … tell them it has to stop!
