I said barely. It refers to Barack smoking Menthols. Why?

Obama did/does, infact, smoke Marlboro Reds. According to the man himself in an interview in the Chicago Tribune, circa 2004, Obama said he smoked "3 to 4 Marlboros a day."
Additionally, menthol cigarettes are purchased disproportionately by black smokers, with 80% of black smokers using menthol cigarettes primarily.
It is a racial, if not racist reference.
Extend to those we meet friendship, courtesy and tolerance, as these values are necessary as well as contagious.
