Sounds like another "Blame Whitey" campaign, in which case it's already covered by the Blame Whitey Blanket.

For those of you who may not know, the Blame Whitey Blanket stretches from today, all the way back to the exploration of west Africa and it covers everything in between.

Aside from that, the article references Al Jazeera 4 times. Pretty much tells you every thing you need to know about Topix roboblogger and NewsOne.

A third major long term health study has shown that second hand smoke caused absolutely no health concerns for non-smokers. The largest World Health Organization study actually showed a benefit to children raised in smoking homes. Statistically, the children were buffered against cancers.
