More Than 50 Years of Promoting Fast Food and Cigarettes to Black People

African American Fast Food and Cigarette Ads

Nationwide — In addition to drugs and alcool, fast food and cigarettes are some of the most harmful elements to minority communities. Because of this, African American families in particular, end up with the most health-related problems including heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney disease/ failure, mental illnesses, and more.

Sadly, none of this is new. It’s been going on for decades. Need proof? Below are some advertisements from the 1950’s, 1960’s and 1970’s that were specifically designed for Black consumers:
