Observations of an Invisible Woman

The Racist History of Coca-Cola

In 1863, Parisian chemist Angelo Mariani combined coca and wine and started selling it from his home. His wine, then called Vin Marian, was a smashing commercial success. John Pemberton, an Atlanta physician, decided to make his own version laced with Cocaine and called it Pemberton’s French Wine Cola and marketed it as “an invigorating tonic for the sex organs.”

Everyone from Sigmund Freud to esteemed medical doctors praised Pemberton’s Wine. But as his company was taking off, a Georgia county prohibition law was passed and outlawed his wine due to the alcohol content, not the cocaine. Pemberton quickly decided to replace his wine-cola with a sugary syrup but kept the cocaine ingredient. His new product would be marketed in 1886 as:


“A Temperance Drink”, as it was called, was sold for a nickel and appealed to the intellectual capacity amongst well-off whites. Blacks, who were not allowed into the segregated soda fountains, soon had access to the bottled drink. Suddenly, anyone who had 5 cents could enjoy the cocaine-fused “nerve tonic”. Middle-class whites, who enjoyed the sexual boost of this Cola, soon  feared that “a cocaine-filled Negro would rape every white woman he saw.”  Southern newspapers caved under the immense political pressure and began to report that “negro cocaine fiends” were raping white women and the police powerless to stop them.

Of course, none of this was true.

By 1903, the new owner of Coca-cola, Asa Griggs, had bowed to white fears and removed the cocaine additive and replaced it with perhaps even a more addictive substance: Caffeine and Sugar. By 1904, white, middle-class AmeriKlan’s were deeply addicted to cocaine and a “black market” for the powdery substance soon began. The rest is His-Story.

What I find interesting about researching this post is this:

When whites used this “sexually invigorating” nerve tonic, fears of murder, crime, rape and other sexually based violence against white women never entered the minds of white AmeriKlans. Even their own drug addiction was deemed “safe” to white AmeriKlan. Yet, it was our sexuality that caused an entire political movement to ban this stimulant from this “nerve tonic.”



I’d also like to point out that EVERY drug that was introduced into white AmeriKlan’s manicured homes, like opium, began as a “tonic” for their sexual and mental stimulation. But is was only when Dark Peoples had access to the drug that it was labeled as a danger to white society.

  1. This reminds me of Birth of a Nation which should Death of a Nation. How this lie about Black men were running around looking for white women to rape. If anybody was in danger of being raped it was Black men and women. But like all US history the victor gets to write it.

  2. Jesus

    When we get to FINALLY tell the tale, and it’s coming soon, I’ll be sure to leave no stone unturned. I’ll tell of cave dwellers, lying in their own fecal matter, sleeping next to their dead, decomposing ancestors eating raw meat dripping fresh blood.

    I’ll tell the tale of the real origin of syphilis and the real reason they loooooove dogs.

  3. And let’s not forget where medicine, science and space travel came from.

    This post reminds me of how the original “gun control” movement was started …
    AFTER blacks began arming themselves to defend against aggressive, violent whites – but yet we’re the ones who are supposed to be prone to violence. (??)
    Yeah .. RIIGGHHTT.

    Whiteness is a demonic religion (belief system re BEING WHITE) that’s based upon DENIAL, DELUSION, PROJECTION and every type of known ABERRATION/sickness!

  5. Yep! Just like a Cracker! After being turned down, turned away, or the classes are “really really full right now”, etc etc. A young Bro. then deceided to Self-Teach himself Self Defence. When he became proficient and deceided to teach other young Bros at his house who were being hasseled etc etc. The Neanders started on his case about, License, not correct premises, not qualified……yes indeed you can finish the sentence.

    I’m meditating on eradicating that demonism once and for all. Notice how HOT the planet is getting? And the solar flares are NO coincidence…

    Hello Negress, I don’t post comments too often, however, keep writing thought provoking articles; continue to shining a light with information where darkness resides; never quit awakening those of our people who are still slumbering in quarters where consciousness is absent; always speak truth to power; we must challenge the system in our own manner, however, UNITY amongst us is imperatively needed first.

    And in the words of Marcus Garvey: “There shall be no solution to this race problem until you, yourselves, strike the blow for liberty.”

    And in the words of Frederick Douglas: “A man without force is without the essential dignity of humanity. Human nature is so constituted that it cannot honor a helpless man, it can only pity him.”

    Keep up the great work Negress!

    Blackmen need to read this post, because, this fight over soda was the catalyst for present-day drug laws in the United States. Basically, a lie was created amongst white males in the South about the alledged affects of cocaine and other drugs on the psyche and sex-drive of recently freed blackmen in relation to whitewomen. As you stated Negress, a lie was created to push DC into enacting drug laws that would and still continue to entrap uneducated black males. Again, we have to look deeper. The rise of the KKK and Jim Crow laws after Reconstruction were driven by the fear that blackmen would lust after whitewomen, thus, resulting in “colored” babies that would not be white. This racial assumption about all blackmen desiring to pounce on white females just because is bulls**t in every sense of the word. If anything, whitewomen are the ones that are obsessed with us. A lot of the hatred of blackmen via whitemen is based on a false assumption. Coca-Cola was used as the pathway to introduce drug laws into the public sphere. Prior to the early 1900s in this country, all drugs were legal. White folks consumed cocaine, opium, weed, etc. Using whitewomen as a weapon to dismantle black manhood is still going on, but, it’s the reverse of what took place in the past. Today, the same clique of racist whitemen want brothas to chase after their daughters, Why? Pushing brothas away from sistas makes us weaker, our race is diluted, mulattos are not loyal to the black race, it allows them to chase after blackwomen with no fear. Soda, Drugs, Lies, Sex…Untold numbers of blackmen in the US and abroad have f**ked up their lives over Coca-Cola, think about it?

    It is crazy that when whites do drugs they are ok but when someone else does it, its banned. I just looked up opium and one article wiki. “The first law outright prohibiting the use of a specific drug in the United States was a San Francisco ordinance which banned the smoking of opium in opium dens in 1875. The reason cited was “many women and young girls, as well as young men of respectable family, were being induced to visit the Chinese opium-smoking dens, where they were ruined morally and otherwise.” This was followed by other laws throughout the country, and federal laws which barred Chinese people from trafficking in opium. Though the laws affected the use and distribution of opium by Chinese immigrants, no action was taken against the producers of such products as laudanum, a tincture of opium and alcohol, commonly taken as a panacea by white Americans. The distinction between its use by white Americans and Chinese immigrants was thus based on the form in which it was ingested: Chinese immigrants tended to smoke it, while it was often included in various kinds of generally liquid medicines often (but not exclusively) used by people of European descent. The laws targeted opium smoking, but not other methods of ingestion. As a result of this discrepancy, some modern commentators believe that these laws were possibly racist in origin and intent”

    I’ve noticed, everything of sexual perversion and sexual terrorism these cave beast project and give ownership to Blacks; and everything that is from the richness and greatness of Africa these beast claim. Many Whites glee in satisfaction now that the confused and corrupt Blacks have adopted their decadence and sexual perversions; many now spewing that homosexuality originated in Africa!! We know this is a lie!!
    The answer to whites isn’t to counter attack white supremacy any more….they’ve gone too far through out the centuries. Death to them all is the only answer now. The Universe/ancestors know this.

    Sex is no more meaningful than farting to white people. They have a natural tendency to engage in nudity, homosexuality, S&M, bestiality, and interracial fetishes. All sexual decadence….no limits!! ANYWHERE they live, sexual debauchery is standard and anyone who adores them exhibit the same behaviors too. Separation and THINKING is key

  17. Folks, drug use has been rampant among whites for eons! The Victorians used a ‘tonic’ called laudanum which was composed of opium for example. Women used it for menstrual cramps and nannies used it for colicky infants. Don’t even go back to the medieval times when they used ‘bat wings and toads tongues’ amongst many other forms of quackery as ‘cures’. So called ‘wise women’ who used natures abundant medicinal, herbs plants, and such, were maligned as ‘witches’. These same fools would deride ‘natives’ who resorted to natural remedies as ‘primitive or blasphemous’. When these same white quacks figured out they could make cash out of these natural remedies, they did so by industrializing the production of medication and creating synthetic, toxic versions. Anyone else find it telling that they resort to pill or other legal or illegal drugs at a disproportionate rate? Alcohol is a drug as well for which they seem to drink like it is kool aid. They drink to get drunk as a pastime or a hobby. It is no coincidence that illicit drugs were introduced to black communities. On a per ratio basis, I think white consume an inordinate amount of drugs and liquor. When some blacks consume illicit drugs, it is due to white supremacy and blunting its’ effect.

    My friend from Ghana tells of whits who badger the local shamans for their cures of cancer, AIDS and the like. My family has been drinking Bush tea since I was old enough to remember. Yet we’re the primitive ones.

    Negress, This is enlightening and informative. Whites always afraid of black people raping their women and going crazy. They were the one’s out of control and raping the black women and drug addicts to add to that.

  20. Mary

    When I deal with whites now I just flip the script.

  21. Not for much longer, they don’t. Looks to me like we’re getting our point across every day.

  22. Nice information. I never knew this……….sad because Coke is my favorite soda. Should I stop drinking it?

  23. Adeen

    Soda depletes calcium from your bones and gives you diabetes. If you drink it often please try and replace it with water…

    I used to love orange soda.

    Now my house has NO soda…only water and tea. But I will admit every now and then, I’ll have a ginger ale if my stomach is a little upset. Try to cut back if you can.

    Black people who fornicate with whites are no different than they are, the mindset is the same. Oftentimes, blacks will try to distinguish their behavior from that of their white partners. They’re going down in flames just the same. Sane sistas and brothas need not jump into the cesspool with them. Unfortunately, a lot of naive black folks will not make it to the other side. As Negress has stated many times, we can’t defeat white supremacy and jump into bed with them at the same time. Death becomes them, look at the world around us.

  27. Negress,

Even their own drug addiction was deemed “safe” to white AmeriKlan. Yet, it was our sexuality that caused an entire political movement to ban this stimulant from this “nerve tonic.”

    Thanks for the history lesson… I bet having Mr. Oedipus complex ( Sigmund Freud ) endorsing it only further reinforce the belief of it being a sexually invigorating sex tonic that would cause the “negro cocaine fiends” to get out of control and rape every white woman he saw.

  28. ynotme

    Yep. Having the homosexual, rapist, drug-fiend known as Freud give his stamp of approval is paramount.

    @ mstoogood4yall:

    You’re absolutely right. About two months ago, a local PBS station aired the documentary, “The House I Live In,” about the history of drug laws and the “War on Drugs” in this country. The doc also looked at the impact that the “War on Drugs” has had on communities of color, esp. the mandatory minimum laws. Another interesting point of the doc showed how drug laws have been racist in nature. The “dangerous black man/cocaine” connection has already been mentioned and you just talked about the “Chinese/opium” connection. This also affected Mexicans. When white people were smoking weed, it was considered “harmless” and “recreational,” but when it was seen that many Mexicans were smoking weed, marijuana was made illegal, and Mexican-American immigrants who had been brought into the country on the braceros program were expelled from the country as a result. Maybe you can watch this doc on YouTube or pbs.org. It is very interesting and eye-opening!
