    Guest: Doctor Terry Richardson Director, Leader and Founder of the HBHC

    For more than 60 years, the tobacco industry has been target marketing to the African American community and particularly to its youth. With flavored cigarette products led by menthol cigarettes, it is now the leading cause of preventable death among African Americans. Greetings again on that of Morgan. In the 1950s, less than 10% of black smokers used menthol cigarettes.  In the 1950s, less than 10% of black smokers used menthol cigarettes. Now that number has risen to over 85%. Menthol cigarettes are marketed heavily, are widely available, and priced cheaper in black community.  The Colorado Black Health Collaborative is a community based Health Organization which has a project of working to stop and in the use of menthol cigarettes specifically among youth and to end smoking in general in the community.

    Mile High Magazine 05/12/2024 Part 2 Anti-Defamation League

    Guest: Scott Leven, Exec, Dir, Mountain States Anti-Defamation League

    Anti-Semitism is prejudice against or hatred of Jewish people. Anti-Semitism and war protesting are actually two different actions. However, too often people confuse both and articulate them together. On these programs we clarify protesting speech and anti-semitism, which has no place in the debate over the Israeli and Hamas Gaza War.
