I'm in the military so on my last ship the only cigarettes they sell in the ship shore are newports, marlboro reds, marlboro lights, and marlboro menthol lights (ugh). Marlboro lights are okay but } like menthols that aren't to menthol-y and I love Newports and I'm a white female but I know a lot of non-black people that smoke newprts but then again I know a lot of black people that smoke Marlboro reds.

It's weird because Newports were really popular among high school kids of all races in the 90's, yes now they are a Black smoke.

Hmm. I don't think Newports are a black cigarette, per say. Not to the extent people suggest they are. Rather, I think they fall along socio-economic lines. I've observed that the less-educated a person is, and the rougher someone's background is, the more likely they are to buy mentholated Newports. Several people have explained to me that they have cachet in certain social pockets and are considered aspirational cigarettes/something important to spend the extra on.

Obviously, this will all be regional.

I'm a white boy from south Texas. I dam sure don't fit the "stereotype." I've been smoking for 15 years recently switched to Reds and tried a Newport...WTF have I been missing. To hell with a stereotype I'm about to be a loyal NEWPORT SMOKER once my carton of Reds are done! I can't stop think about em! They are magic!

Yeah, I like a good Newport in the summer. AHHH! I smoked them before Lorillard started targeting blacks, they called them "urbanites", with heavy ads for Newport & Kent. Guess it worked.

I'm a white guy and don't smoke menthols too often, but when I do, it's Newports. Don't give a shit what other people think. I think in general, smokers don't care what other people think since most non-smokers think people who smoke are dumbasses anyway.
