Nice. Black inventions haven't received much publicity. It's a shame. Try Googling Kenya's M-Pesa mobile money transfer. A technology solely developed in Kenya.

No pure-blooded sub-saharan african has ever contributed anything of any value to mankind. Period.

The only time the negroe advances or invents anything is when they intermingle and mix with other races.

Feel free to prove me wrong.
