“In the era of Black Lives Matter, does the Biden administration really want to take on prominent activists like Al Sharpton and Ben Crump — and make lives potentially harder for [b]lack men, all because the government says it’s in their best interest? … voices on the libertarian right [sic] and progressive left [sic] are skeptical of proponents’ claim that the menthol ban won’t be enforced on ‘the little guys’ — noting the fact that all laws are ultimately enforced at the barrel of a law enforcement gun and with the threat of incarceration.” (05/12/22)
