    Every city I go to, it's the same thing. Black cigarette smokers love Newports. Is it because all our people smoke them so we just pick up the brand? I never noticed any taegeted cigarette marketing towards blacks by Newport. An they aren't the only menthol out there. Plus they're the mad expensive. So why the brand loyalty?

    Btw im black and I smoke Newports and I really don't know why lol.

    I always found it funny when someone would ask to bum a cigarette from me and then would give it back when they realized it wasn't a menthol. Like they were craving the menthol, not the nicotine [​IMG]

    Looks like just good marketing by Lorillard Tobacco Company . . . once you hook customers when they're young, they'll be brand loyal for life?

    Adverts are more powerful than we want to believe. The cold hard facts of reality :smh: Time to unplug


    The fist on the left is crucial to the advertisement. The black fist, an almost autonomous symbol of black power and the will to action, is perverted by the addition of corporate product that will immediately pacify and slowly kill you.

    The menthol im Camel crushes is too harsh and it just tastes to manufactured to me

    I've personally never met a white person that smoked Newports as their regular brand. It's usually Camels, Marlboros or American Spirits.
