Eli Whitney was a slave who spent many hours picking cotton by hand when one day he came up with an idea and he invented the cotton gin. Here is an example of a black man who used his brain and came up with something the world could use. When someone tells you black men are worthless just mention someone like Eli Whitney and that will shut them up.

No, Whitney was white but he did borrow the idea from a slave. Of course the slave never got credit.

Malik is a Caucasian. Malik starts forums like this one to attempt to belittle Africans in America. Who invented the Cotton Gin? It is disputed by many. Eli Whitney and a Caucasian female had a patent. However, Whitney's team were sued plenty of times concerning that patent. Lastly, it is not a stretch to assume the experts dealing with cotton were instrumental in the cotton gin's creation??? even if none of the expert received the credit. Unfortunately though for Africans in America, the cotton gin made cotton profitable which promoted slavery. Therefore, no sane African in America would admit to his/her ancestors being involved with the cotton gin creation. Malik is a funny guy.

Nope, I have Biology and Algebra II homework to finish up. I never even lived in "the hood" or even seen a real gun before other than on a policeman. I don't sag or talk ghetto, or fail school. You on the other hand are nothing but a bigoted, ignorant, pathetic old loser who has no life. I pity you.

You're right, Lord Malik. Obama invented the Cotton Gin. It's called putting his tongue in my middle-aged hairy rear and cleaning it out. No need for a bidet and it keeps the hemorrhoids away!

No Eli Whitney is not black, but it is said that he got his ideas from a black slave, but of course like many other things, he was not credited for it. & to tne ignorance that is bein said about black people ( we claim everything, we do drive by's etc) that is sterotyping, we have jobs, we get accepted into "Harvard", we are Doctors, Lawyers, & ect. So dont sterotype because we invented almost half of things you use today. Dont believe me ? Google it ;)

All knowledge, thought and wisdom began from ingenious mind of a unique black culture who created and maintained the longest run civilization for thousands of years b4 the first European had a house with a window to throw out a shoe (eg. John Henrik Clarke) a magnanimous feat that has been copied yet will never been matched...!

As far as Eli Whitney is concerned -- he (eg. like many other Europeans) capitalized upon the idea of a person of colour.

why would a white man invent something that he never even picked himself sound more like a black slave had a hand in the invention as they did dam neat anything else and white men take claim to every dam thing and steal mostly a ything and claim it and whispered everyone else from history. Even though white peoples history only dates around 6000 years give or take talking about before then we were ruled by dinasours and came from a cave when God says otherwise sit down bro

First of all....Eli Whitney attended Yale, NOT Harvard @blunt mocker. My second point; Please Wikipedia, Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc., the cotton gin. It DID NOT "pick cotton". It was invented to separate the fibers from the seeds. I'm pretty certain none of you who posted know a damn about what you are saying in this forum.
