White Sexual Insecurity and Drug Criminalization

Even more fuel for the fire- The real reason for the War on Drugs

Read this Wikipedia entry on the Harrison Narcotics Tax Act– the first anti-drug law in the US.

The relevant parts..

The Harrison Narcotics Tax Act (Ch. 1, 38 Stat. 785) was a United States federal law that regulated and taxed the production, importation, and distribution of opiates. The act was proposed by Representative Francis Burton Harrison of New York and was approved on December 17, 1914.

OK..

In the 1800s opiates and cocaine were mostly unregulated drugs. In the 1890s the Sears & Roebuck catalogue, which was distributed to millions of Americans homes, offered a syringe and a small amount of cocaine for $1.50.

Interesting..

At the beginning of the 20th century, cocaine began to be linked to crime. In 1900, the Journal of the American Medical Association published an editorial stating, “Negroes in the South are reported as being addicted to a new form of vice – that of ‘cocaine sniffing’ or the ‘coke habit.'” Some newspapers later claimed cocaine use caused blacks to rape white women and was improving their pistol marksmanship. Chinese immigrants were blamed for importing the opium-smoking habit to the U.S. The 1903 blue-ribbon citizens’ panel, the Committee on the Acquirement of the Drug Habit concluded, “If the Chinaman cannot get along without his dope we can get along without him.”

So cocaine makes black men rape white women.. go on..

Theodore Roosevelt appointed Dr. Hamilton Wright as the first Opium Commissioner of the United States in 1908. In 1909, Wright attended the International Opium Commission in Shanghai as the American delegates. He was accompanied by Charles Henry Brent, the Episcopal Bishop. On March 12, 1911, Dr. Wright was quoted in as follows in an article in the New York Times: “Of all the nations of the world, the United States consumes most habit-forming drugs per capita. Opium, the most pernicious drug known to humanity, is surrounded, in this country, with far fewer safeguards than any other nation in Europe fences it with.” Wright further stated that “cocaine is often the direct incentive to the crime of rape by the Negroes of the South and other sections of the country,” even though there was no evidence to support this claim. Wright also stated that “one of the most unfortunate phases of smoking opium in this country is the large number of women who have become involved and were living as common-law wives or cohabitating with Chinese in the Chinatowns of our various cities”.

So white men were afraid of blacks and chinese stealing their women.. can it get any better?

By 1914, the problem had grown to the point where an estimated one U.S. citizen in 400 (0.25%) was addicted to some form of opium.The opium addicts were mostly women who were prescribed and dispensed legal opiates by physicians and pharmacist for ”female problems,” probably mostly pain at menstruation, or white men and Chinese at the Opium dens. Between two-thirds and three-quarters of these addicts were women.By 1914, forty-six states had regulations on cocaine and twenty-nine states had laws against opium, morphine, and heroin.

Turns out- most opiate users were white women. But why let facts get in the way of fantasy.

The drafters played on fears of “drug-crazed, sex-mad negroes” and made references to Negroes under the influence of drugs murdering whites, degenerate Mexicans smoking marijuana, and “Chinamen” seducing white women with drugs. Dr. Hamilton Wright, testified at a hearing for the Harrison Act. Wright alleged that drugs made blacks uncontrollable, gave them superhuman powers and caused them to rebel against white authority. Dr. Christopher Koch of the State Pharmacy Board of Pennsylvania testified that “Most of the attacks upon the white women of the South are the direct result of a cocaine-crazed Negro brain”.

No comments.. LOL.

Before the Act was passed, on February 8, 1914 The New York Times published an article entitled “Negro Cocaine ‘Fiends’ Are New Southern Menace:Murder and Insanity Increasing Among Lower-Class Blacks” by Edward Huntington Williams which reported that Southern sheriffs had increased the caliber of their weapons from .32 to .38 to bring down Negroes under the effect of cocaine.

Never mind!

Zealots could make drug illegal in the US by scaring white men and women with stories of black sexual prowess. What does that say about the average intelligence of these sheeple?

    Yeah, I’ve also heard that marijuana is illegal because Mexicans were smoking it with white women…

      Close. The Mexican farm workers were unionizing and MJ was a cause to deport them.

    Best way to get a chick into bed is to have a ready supply of drugs. Women very naturally trade sex for drugs. As far as cocaine crazed Negros? I’m pretty sure people under the influence of drugs are far more likely to commit crimes and can often be harder to bring down. BTW: A 32cal? WTF. You can bounce .32 rounds off people heads 10 feet away and it will only piss them off.

    Odd that blacks were accused of rapes while the Chinese just seduced women. I’m sure a lot of the charges of rape were regular sex for coke were the chick decide to cry rape later. Just odd that the Chinese were not hammered with the same thing.

    While I’m no fan of recreational drug use, marijuana or cocaine and it’s ilk. It’s funny to me that these drugs are illegal today, ultimately because the vast majority of users back in the day were white women.

    The irony in that is astounding.

    Odd he says. See article linked previously about washing brains.

    In the words of rapper Young Jeezy…
    “First they give us the work, then they throw us in jail.”

    In other words, drugs were put into the AA community (by Reagan and the CIA) to intentionally destroy the black race, cause poor black to sell it and use it, then imprison them for using and/or selling the drugs that were given to them to begin with.

    I also heard that marijuana was made illegal because someone thought it influenced white women to listen to jazz and forincate with negroes.
    —-

    Yes..

    “Most marijuana smokers are Negroes, Hispanics, jazz musicians, and entertainers. Their satanic music is driven by marijuana, and marijuana smoking by white women makes them want to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers, and others. It is a drug that causes insanity, criminality, and death — the most violence-causing drug in the history of mankind.”
