Those are actually ALL false. And LOL at you "sources". The first two are insane Afrocentrist sites and the last is just a generic link to Wikipedia's mobile site and has NOTHING to do with those claims. You cannot provide actual evidence for ANY of those claims, because it does not exist. Those claims originated as a hoax n an email called "Life without black people." Not ONE of those inventions did black people actually invent. Feel free to look it up on Snopes if you'd like.

I address each claim individually.

I have 3 arguments to the previous poster
1.It seems very clear that the whole field of Science and Technology is comprised of building on the trials,errors and successes of predecessors. This is called Evolutionary inventions. So in the case of Black Americans their contributions made these inventions not only better but fit for Mass use and consumption.
For example to use the list
the elevator which after research indicates a primitive version of it existed in the 3rd century B.C for agriculture and farming purposes so we can safely assume Europeans did not invent it since there was no European civilization. It was then used by the french manually in the 17th Century so is the question Who invented it??? According to history they all did. Who made it as we know it today and that is where the credit goes to Alexander Miles.
2. Most Blacks were uneducated up until far after the Emancipation Proclamation. In Fact Black Americans have been Freed for Less time Than their collective time in Slavery. In that small window of time they have been able to produce the many inventions listed some without any formal education at all which makes it all the more impressive.
3.I subscribe to a very staunch form of individualism as most Americans do where no man can do anything but admire another man's work and be proud of his own
therefore the real question might be what did you invent?
4.This need to desperately attach yourself to another person's achievements to feel better about a perceived shift in this countries dynamic is laughable.
If you are a Christian you do know that God will judge each man according to his own works. Therefore what difference does it make what the Race is of a person who contributed to what helped all of mankind. According to History All Men of All Races have done that as it should be.
Yes, How brilliant you are

I take that back, I didn't see "Super Soaker" on your list originally. Yes, a black man did invent the Super Soaker. Apart from that, your list is 100% nonsense, LOL.

Do you know that most of them have patent numbers. You will discredit patent also. If they built on other peoples ideas to make it better isn't that worth mentioning. All the inventions done by white people are the same but you don't see people looking for how to discredit them. What will you gain by writing all this it makes you sleep better at night.You need to help your self esteem or what.

These are after all, up there with the most important inventions of all time. Show me ONE black invention that rivals them. One user cited a list of great black inventions which included the COMBINED HAT RACK AND TABLE. Now, who has a combined hat rack and table? Nobody that's who. Worthless invention.

It ain't much, but look in the mirror at your sorry @$$. That's something that BLACKS invented, and can definitely be tossed in the worthless pile.

Africans created language. Without language most of those inventions wouldn't exist. Africans also created boats which is were the idea of transportation originated from. Some of the oldest art has been discovered in Africa. All of this shows Africans by nature are creative and self taught. Most modern inventions were created for a more advanced global trade hence the need for slaves and ships diminished. These machines are slowly replacing the need for human creativity and skills. Humanity will become less life like and more programmed. The complete opposite of what our creator designed.

A WHITE MAN HAS NEVER INVENTED ANYTHING OTHER THAN A DEATH MACHINE!! IF YOU'RE SO SMART,THEN WHY CANT YOU INVENT SOMETHING WITHOUT KILLING HUMANS ANIMALS,TREES,OR SOME TYPE OF LIFE?? WHY DOES EVERYTHING U "CREATE" CAUSE BILLIONS OF DEATHS TO SOMETHING ON THE PLANET,WHILE AT THE SAME TIME KILLING THE PLANET?? AN INVENTION IS SOMETHING THAT IS COMPLETE AND HAS ALL THE KINKS WORKED OUT.A WHITE MAN HAS NEVER EVER COMPLETED AN INVENTION!!! HE HAS ONLY FOUND DIFFERENT WAYS TO KILL DIFFERENT THINGS!!i
Excellent Point! If ur invention sets Humanity backwards, it's NOT really a quality invention.

I have no idea what you're babbling about, I'm not sure that English is your first language, but what I was saying is simply truth. That list originated as part of a HOAX email, titled "Life without black people.". Apart from the Super Soaker, black people did not invent any of those items on that list. That is a 100% fact. Look up any of them. For example, he claimed a black man invented the cell phone.... but that simply isn't true. A white man, Martin Cooper, invented the cell phone. That site he links also claims a black man invented the cell phone, by the name of "Henry Sampson." Henry Sampson was a black man, yes, but he had literally NOTHING to do with the invention of the cellular phone. "Nothing," as in "Absolutely, 100% nothing" to do with it. The same trend holds true for every other thing on his list.

And those sites he linked are even more absurd. One of them claims the lantern was invented by a black man... in the 19th century! Ahahahaha, does anyone honestly believe humans did not use lanterns until the 19th century!?? That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard, people have been using lanterns for literally thousands of years. That's like creating a list and writing "Shoe.-Frank Sherman, 20th century." GASP! The shoe was invented by a black man, AWESOME! I hate to break the news to you, but everything you read on the internet isn't necessarily true. You see, any nut can post anything on the internet.

I'm sorry if this hurts your feelings, I don't know what to tell you. If some fantasy list of black inventors makes you feel better about yourself or something, then by all means continue to gaze at it lovingly. I was simply informing you of the truth - that said list was a hoax and, is in fact, fantasy.

Showing you, telling you, and teaching you would be a waste of time. It would be like trying to tell an atheist that God exists. Your mind is already made up. The information is already at your fingertips. You just don't want to heart it. You don't want to read about it and really don't care.

they know it too.they cant even come up with a couple white inventions that doesnt kill something else!

Everything they "invent" harms either humans,animals,trees,the ocean,or the air! Everything they create just kills something else.they invent death machines and nothing more!

I mean... I don't know about you guys, but I use the Potato Chip way more than some of those inventions OP listed, lol. George Crum invented chips, my absolute favorite snack :)

Blood banks and gas masks are also up there as extremely useful inventions from black Americans.

It's not a competition. We're all sharing this stuff together. I'm not black or white and I make great use of the internet AND potato chips, simultaneously at times.

That's a poor analogy.
If you could show an atheist that a god exists, they would believe you because you'd have proof. The only reason atheists don't believe in any of the god-claims is because nobody has been able to show proof. An atheist's mind is never made up, it can always be changed with evidence. Religious people have their minds made up, and many of them aren't even permitted to freely question things, per the rules in their religion. A religious person is the kind of person you can show evidence to (as we know already, from the "evolution debate") and they will still deny what is clearly in their face.
