Tobacco is not an equal opportunity killer. For decades, millions of Americans have been disproportionately affected by tobacco use, and it's not a coincidence. African Americans, those in low-income neighborhoods, LGBTQ communities, and individuals with mental illness have been the target of profiling by the tobacco industry.
