They finally realized that kids benefit from positive role models they can identify with.

In every astronaut tread on Topix there is a Youtube clip that has to be posted, even if a rat is the astronaut.

Maybe but the thing is White folks invent, innovate and improve.
The Greeks were good scientists but not very good practical engineers, whereas the Romans were good engineers but poor scientists, I see White folks as being great engineers and scientist, and engineering is the application of science.
Look at rockets, or even the gun, it stagnated in China and places like Japan actively forbade it, whereas the crackers took both inventions and improved them, everyone else had the opportunity but it was only Whites that actually did it.
Also a lot of Asian technology was unproductive, the Chinese and Indians preferred pretty looking craftsmen made guns, whereas Europeans just wanted functional weapons cheap and quick to make, one of the main reasons parts of India fell.
I think the rocket was on its way to being invented, it is after all just a chemical engine, like a steam kettle. Even gunpowder took Europeans to improve, the main improvement being corned powder by the French, this increased power, shelf-life and safety.
It's like all these folks that complain about Whitey stealing all the resources of other countries, well the native people had the chance, Negroes sat on their ass in Africa since the dawn of mankind and never used any of the resource accept for a bit of metalwork and mud huts.
As for algebra, the Arabs were the first folks to bring all the different forms together, the Mesopotamians had algebra, they could calculate the equivalent of equating to Pythagoras' Theorem and could do square equations, their sexigesimal numeral system gave them accuracy to a standard not met until about 200 years ago, some of their celestial calculations weren't bettered until we had computers.
Also, White folks have not been around long, if Negroes were as good as Whites, the they should have achieved what Whites have done about 50,000 years ago or more.
No one in history has contributed more to mathematics than Whites have, calculus was a HUGE step, and White contributions to science include String, Quantum, Relativity and General Relativity Theories, let alone that Newtonian Mechanics is still used today for planning spaceflights.
Here's the thing. Negroes have been on the planet LONGER than all the other peoples, yet it is the EURASIANS that have dominated science, mathematics, medicine and technology. If it wasn't for Eurasians, Africans would still be eating neighbors, showering in cow piss, raping babies to cure disease and living in mud huts - like many still do today lol
My threads on this forum aren't intended as denials of white race accomplishments. They are simply efforts to contribute positives that lift the human spirit as opposed to debasing it.

Mae Carol Jemison (born October 17, 1956) is an American physician and NASA astronaut. She became the first black woman to travel in space when she went into orbit aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour on September 12, 1992.

After her medical education and a brief general practice, Jemison served in the Peace Corps from 1985 to 1987, when she was selected by NASA to join the astronaut corps. She resigned from NASA in 1993 to form a company researching the application of technology to daily life.

She has appeared on television several times, including as an actress in an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. She is a dancer, and holds nine honorary doctorates in science, engineering, letters, and the humanities

Great post. Mae Carol Jemison is the only one I remembered from school. It is unfortunate every post about race on Topix seems to attract the worst kind of people, but I guess if they are filled with so much hate they might as well get it out on a forum before they go back to their sad little lives. EBT you are a good writer, you made a very clear argument, it's utter nonsense but at least you tried. Have you went to space? Or made some sort of contribution to the world, or are you just piggy backing on the shoulders of other people. White accomplishments are not your accomplishments, they are for all people to be proud of. Your like a child that thinks he is special because his dad is a doctor, pathetic. It is a shame that trash like you make up the majority posters on this site. Whites had a lot of advantages due to the environment they colonized and the live stock available in that area, when your not constantly working at surviving it frees up a lot of time to tinker. Incase you didn't know our "pinkie" forefather's ancestors were the same people who didn't accomplish much in the thousands of years before we started looking different no one had a head start. The truth is when given the same opportunities people all races have proven themselves equal. Some good, great, and a lot of in-between and a few at the bottom like you. I'm from Kentucky and they have white women who's whole career plan revolves around being morbidly obese until they die so they can collect SSI. We also have great Collage basketball teams and some of the smartest engineers on the planet, along with many people addicted to oxycodone and bath salts.
By the way I am a FIU Grad, EMT, and a soon to be National Parks Law Enforcement Officer Fresh from the academy GPA 3.98. You all need to check out SharkValley ~20 miles west of Miccosukee Casino you can walk right next to alligators no fence no bridge just grass and air.
