I was gona do athread like this, too!
Glad you did it!
Naturally, trolls will say it isnt true, for the simple fact that they NEED it to be untrue. LOL!
So many low caliber, insecure, inadequate feeling trolls on here like to paint blacks out to be worthless, non-contributing to anything good, and of course all history books are white washed with convienient references to eli whitney and the cotton gin, which is an invention that gets ridiculed because trolls figure, anything to do with cotton maybe a blk would contribute to.

And the list is longer than this-there are things that blk people and women will never get credit for.And we all know it, including all you biggots!
The Lord says Vengence is mine;I will repay. Amen.

Here's the untold story of how Famous Amos invented the Chocolate chip Cookie.

One day, Famous Amos woke up from a night of crack smoking and hard drinking in his ghetto shit hole he called a home. He was very hungry and he realized he did not have any food to eat. The only thing he had was a container of cookie dough some white woman had thrown at him at a supermarket parking lot when he got too close to her to ask her for a quarter.

He opened the cookie dough container and dropped it on his filthy floor. He picked it up from the floor and notice that there were small roaches and roach eggs stuck to the dough.

He then said...

"UUhh...dang! Ah gots me an a brainstormin on here!".

He then went to the people next door to use their oven and they told him that he would have to share some of the baked cookies with them if he wanted to use their oven. He barely was able to save one of the baked roach cookies to himself.

He took that roach cookie to a baking company and said...

"Bihoe! Da first eva roach chip cookie!"

they told him...

"Great idea! How about if we change the roaches to something like Chocolate chips? Would that work?"

Amos said...

"Whaeva fool! Jost gimmi 20 so I can get a hit on!"

Is there some sort of competition between Black folks and Indians for inventing that I don't know about? To my thinking, anyone of any race that contributes useful things to the world is a worthy person!

Theses have all been debunked!!!!!!I did it myself a few months ago. The afrocentrics like to generalize the term of invention. In reality these men have either contributed in some way to the already existing invention or attempted to improve on the invention that was outdated.
*smh*
Not all of them are fabrications. You're greatly exaggerating.

Dr. Charles Drew in 1940? No!
During World War I, Dr. Oswald H. Robertson of the US army preserved blood in a citrate-glucose solution and stored it in cooled containers for later transfusion. This was the first use of "banked" blood. By the mid-1930s the Russians had set up a national network of facilities for the collection, typing, and storage of blood. Bernard Fantus, influenced by the Russian program, established the first hospital blood bank in the United States at Chicago's Cook County Hospital in 1937. It was Fantus who coined the term "blood bank." See highlights of transfusion history from the American Association of Blood Banks.

Blood Plasma
Did Charles Drew "discover" (in about 1940) that plasma could be separated and stored apart from the rest of the blood, thereby revolutionizing transfusion medicine? No!
The possibility of using blood plasma for transfusion purposes was known at least since 1918, when English physician Gordon R. Ward suggested it in a medical journal. In the mid-1930s, John Elliott advanced the idea, emphasizing plasma's advantages in shelf life and donor-recipient compatibility, and in 1939 he and two colleagues reported having used stored plasma in 191 transfusions.(See historical notes on plasma use.) Charles Drew was not responsible for any breakthrough scientific or medical discovery; his main career achievement lay in supervising or co-supervising major programs for the collection and shipment of blood and plasma.

So far, I don't think that anyone ever said that blacks didn't invent anything.
Let's deal with RIGHT NOW.
Indians are inventing far, far , more that blacks are inventing.
Please explain why black inventions slowed down to a trickle.
PS, don't wear your feeling on your sleeve.

Big Time, I didn't say Dr. Drew invented the use of blood plasma. I did say he patented the method here in the States,which he did. Before you misquote me, please read exactly what I wrote.
