    Coca-Cola is on the BLM bandwagon. It could be they always were since they are one of CNN's major sponsors. Below is an email conversation with them. Start at the bottom.

    Well then I will stop buying any of your products. BLM is not the organization you think you are supporting. This organization is founded on marxist prnicipals. I don't suppose you know that George Soros has back door funded them with 33 million dollars since 2015. You are either ignorant and unwilling to understand what you are supporting or you are in bed with them. Either way you are in the wrong. I'll be sure to forward your response to others that understand this threat to the american family and our constitution.


    Dear Tom

    Thank you for contacting Coca-Cola!

    Coca-Cola stands for optimism, diversity, and inclusion. Companies like ours must speak up as allies to the Black Lives Matter movement. We are outraged, sad, frustrated, angry, and we stand with those seeking justice and equality.

    Additionally, as a nation and as individuals, we can and must do better. Our goal is for all lives to be treated fairly. The continuing cycle of systemic racism is forever altering the lives of Black people, families, and communities everywhere. We hope you will join us in working toward a better future. To learn more about our approach and the actions we are taking, please visit:

    Should you have additional questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.

    Comments: I saw your commercial supporting black live matters. I do know one of the co-founders is a self avowed marxist.
    I will never buy a sprite drink again. b

    They've forgotten their mission, if that's their claim.

    Haven't been a fan for any carbonated beverage for years. Roommate in High-school military school was anti-Coke / pro-Pepsi (family ownership). Can't say I've had any soda for at least the past five years. This travesty of logic just confirms.

    If Yuengling ever comes out with some crap like this, I'll swear off beer...:(

    One more thing I had to give up when Life 2.0 began, in the cardio ward.

    Like potato chips and french fries, if I try one now, it tastes vile.
