~Wel, thank you.=)

~Yes, there are many hidden contributions our people made to society. A black man (forgot his name) invented the blood transfusion. And that's for informing me, that's very interesting.

Had a discussion earlier today with one of my classmates and we talked about black inventors. I heard somewhere that the lightbulb was invented a black man and former slave named Thomas Ellison. My friend said he didn't think so but I is sure I saw this one time on the history channel.
LOL! Why do you blacks lie about EVERYTHING? Try Thomas EDISON.....who happened to be lily WHITE.

I once had a nikka try to tell me Africans invented electricity. Say what? Nobody "invented" electro-magnetism; it's a naturally occuring force. The first folks to harness electrical power to do work were white Europeans in the 19th century. Why nikkaz are so full of crap?

LIFE WITHOUT BLACK PEOPLE A very humorous and revealing story is told about a group of white people who were fed up with African Americans, so they joined together and wished themselves away.
They passed through a deep dark tunnel and emerged in sort of a twilight zone where there is an America without black people. 
At first these white people breathed a sigh of relief.
At last, they said, "No more crime, drugs, violence and welfare. All of the blacks have gone!" Then suddenly, reality set in.
The "NEW AMERICA" is not America at all — only a barren land. 
1. There are very few crops that have flourished because the nation was built on a slave-supported system.
 2. There are no cities with tall skyscrapers because Alexander Mils, a black man, invented the elevator, and without it, one finds great difficulty reaching higher floors. 
3. There are few if any cars because Richard Spikes, a black man, invented the automatic gearshift, Joseph Gambol, also black, invented the Super Charge System for Internal Combustion Engines, and Garrett A. Morgan, a black man, invented the traffic signals.
 4. Furthermore, one could not use the rapid transit system because its procurer was the electric trolley, which was invented by another black man, Albert R. Robinson. 
5. Even if there were streets on which cars and a rapid transit system could operate, they were cluttered with paper because an African American, Charles Brooks, invented the street sweeper.
 6. There were few if any newspapers, magazines and books because John Love invented the pencil sharpener, William Purveys invented the fountain pen, and Lee Barrage invented the Type Writing Machine and W. A. Love invented the Advanced Printing Press. They were all, you guessed it, Black. 
7. Even if Americans could write their letters, articles and books, they would not have been transported by mail because William Barry invented the Postmarking and Canceling Machine, William Purveys invented the Hand Stamp and Philip Downing invented the Letter Drop. 
8. The lawns were brown and wilted because Joseph Smith invented the Lawn Sprinkler and John Burr the Lawn Mower. 
9. When they entered their homes, they found them to be poorly ventilated and poorly heated. You see, Frederick Jones invented the Air Conditioner and Alice Parker the Heating Furnace. Their homes were also dim. But of course, Lewis Later invented the Electric Lamp, Michael Harvey invented the lantern and Granville T. Woods invented the Automatic Cut off Switch. Their homes were also filthy because Thomas W. Steward invented the Mop and Lloyd P. Ray the Dust Pan. 
10. Their children met them at the door-barefooted, shabby, motley and unkempt. But what could one expect? Jan E. Matzelinger invented the Shoe Lasting Machine, Walter Sammons invented the Comb, Sarah Boone invented the Ironing Board and George T. Samon invented the Clothes Dryer. 
11. Finally, they were resigned to at least have dinner amidst all of this turmoil. But here again, the food had spoiled because another Black Man, John Standard invented the refrigerator. 
Now, isn't that something? What would this country be like without the contributions of Blacks, as African-Americans? 
Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "by the time we leave for work, Americans have depended on the inventions from the minds of Blacks." Black history includes more than just slavery, Frederick Douglass, Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and Marcus Garvey and W.E.B. Dubois.

Egypt was not the first civilization. That would be Sumeria better known as Iraq and Iran today. Turkey has Gobekli Tepe which was dated to proceed the pyramids by thousands of years. Ancient Africa did have their own writing systems. Like the Mende script of Mali and Ge'ez script that was developed in the horn of africa. Africans also invented steel and had contructed a hundred mile wall that rivaled the great wall of china. The point is all races have their own achievements and contributions to the world.

The first human died out before blacks existed. Blacks are obviously not the first. If they were, why are they mixed with homo erectus?

Here's the truth about white people. White people are too afraid of black men because they see black men's potential. Maybe its because they are directly opposite to them. If you would notice in nowadays the world is changing and black people are taking over on almost everything and everyone sees that, Africa is already back to blacks and are now taking western countries n one day u will c a black premier of england, believe me. Black men are very religeous and cultured people and very respectful to other races and more over they are very intelligent.
Afraid of the black men's potential? Please let us know when the potential will become the actual. Potential means that something "could" happen, but has not actually happened yet. Try as you may, you cannot point to a successful black culture. OK, where is it?? I don't see a lot of grass huts in Africa with light bulbs. I don't see a lot of those grass huts with air conditioning and running water. Where are the flush toilets? Sure....we must get the blacks in positions of leadership, right? Well, they're doing a great job in africa. Right? Uh-huh..........

Well, kinda makes you wonder why are blacks so backward, unemployed, criminalized, uneducated, and dependent in so many ways, now doesn't it? I know, I know, you are going to go into your "white man oppressed them so much" routine, right? Well, if blacks are so resourceful and inventive, then why would they ever allow themselves to be oppressed? Oh, that's right....they are so passive and loving and sensitive that they just can't stand up to it. Thanks for your educational insight here....you are proving just how "superior?" your culture is. ;-)
