Dr. Lewis Archer Boswell of Alabama invented the airplane. It was a flying boat. This was before the Wright Brothersl. Black Egyptians were also way ahead of Divinchi in the design of flying machines.

Whites write the history books. This is why we do not know of all the black accomplishments. Just think of how many inventions we would hqve if there were not so many young blacks in prison. Maybe there is another Steve Jobs there.

Well then, how about the blacks writing their own history books? Oh thats right, they can't because that would involve getting an education ....

I am finding that most of the inventions in our world were by African Americans. They had opportunity and grabbed this opportunity. Also they received patents for their work. Which is proof enough that their contributions were unrecognised until now. It is good that their inventions are coming to light.

May God bless Africans and African Americans for their persistence in the face of so much adversity.

We are not getting enough black history. I think the media should give more exposure
to black history. For example: Both the cell phone and airplane were invented by African Americans.

Could you verify that Lewis Archer Boswell invented "airplane?" Do you have pictures of Boswell? He seems to have come from an established southern family with no hints of being black. If I am going to teach black children, I would need more substantiation.

The word "racist" is too loose of a term. As so far as history is concerned, most of our history has been white washed. That is, history's slant is toward the European side, completely oblivious to the roles different groups played in history. Before there was a white Europe, it was black. Before there was European printing press, there was a Korean one. Before there was a European or Asian alphabet, there were several in Africa. Before there was SLC 24A5 DNA marker, there was melanin, a solely marker since at least 150,000 years ago, compared to SLC 24A5 which came into existence strongly `five to six thousand years ago, with a narrow possibility some 12 thousand years ago. These are facts that is not widely known and should be.
The gifts of writing, art, music was originally black, being that black or melanin skin dominated the history of mankind for nearly 150 to 200 thousand years ago. To be more specific, geography dominates skin color and humans turned lighter due to different environments and weather conditions. To say that most of the earlier "inventions" are solely "black" is to loose sight of this physical process to protect genetically the variances of all humans. Therefore, whites are equal inheritors of all "human" creations and innovations going deep into history. Needless to say, that all accumulated inventions, innovations, material improvements are equally shared with all people regardless of color or birth or human condition.
The origin of our alphabet comes from Ethiopia, goes to Canaan and ends up in Europe, clearly a sharing of "Human Intellect." The symbols of traffic signs is another example of sharing human intellect, this time being created in western civilization and is now universal.
We are now witnessing the failure of modern medicine and the dangers it poses to most human beings. For one to be proud of such schemes is to miss the point. Because Allopathic Medicine is a western invention, doesn't mean that it will benefit us all. If the reader does not believe me, the United States stands 27th human health---damn the free market!
We are creative and destructive, honest and deceitful, etc., which is found in every human existing on this earth.

I can agree to much of the many words you write, but do i need to say who really discovered America? and why kid's have a day off from school on days of such as veterans day when we all know they haven't been in service to protect our country?

We need to distribute all income equally. The slaves built the South. All the prosperity there is rooted in slavery. We need to redivided everything.

You're a little lost Kerri. Income comes from working. If you don't work, you have no income. If you feel you deserve more money, go out and get a better job (actually just get a job because we all know you don't have one.).

Pray to Obama for more freebies for the ignorant leeches who voted twice for the incompetent failure.
