African American InventorsThomas L. Jennings

Returning to the U.S., he developed an evaporator for refining sugar, which he patented in 1846. Rillieux's evaporation technique is still used in the sugar industry and in the manufacture of soap and other products.Benjamin Bradley
(1830?-?)A slave, Bradley was employed at a printing office and later at the Annapolis Naval Academy, where he helped set up scientific experiments. In the 1840s he developed a steam engine for a war ship. Unable to patent his work, he sold it and with the proceeds purchased his freedom.Elijah McCoy
(1844-1929)The son of escaped slaves from Kentucky, McCoy was born in Canada and educated in Scotland. Settling in Detroit, Michigan, he invented a lubricator for steam engines (patented 1872) and established his own manufacturing company. During his lifetime he acquired 57 patents.Lewis Howard Latimer
(1848-1929)Born in Chelsea, Mass., Latimer learned mechanical drawing while working for a Boston patent attorney. He later invented an electric lamp and a carbon filament for light bulbs (patented 1881, 1882). Latimer was the only African-American member of Thomas Edison's engineering laboratory.Granville T. Woods
(1856-1910)Woods was born in Columbus, Ohio, and later settled in Cincinnati. Largely self-educated, he was awarded more than 60 patents. One of his most important inventions was a telegraph that allowed moving trains to communicate with other trains and train stations, thus improving railway efficiency and safety.Madame C.J. Walker

He led the team of IBM scientists that developed the ISA bus—a device that enabled computer components to communicate with each other rapidly, which made personal computers fast and efficient for the first time. Dean also led the design team responsible for creating the first one-gigahertz computer processor chip. He was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 1997.
Of course their are alot more.also have to think that, during the 17 -18 AND EARLY 19 hundreds, alot of what black people invented , was stolen. the ideas. to think that white men were the only ones to invent serious contributions to the world ,is absurd. we live in the age of technology. people shouldnt hold onto racist ideas for no other logical reason other than hate. enlighten yourself with real history. not just the white mans history.

peepsqueek , What you said makes white racists more ridiculous than ever. They are ensalved by the elite yet they are foolish enough to still champion white supremacy, and vote against their own self interests, just because they are ignorant enough to hate Blacks

There are exceptions to the rule. Yet, if a man wants to do something, a man should be just active and accomplish their goals directly. So, I do believe that a man should court a woman, because culturally we men are territorial, we like our space, and we can be aggressive because of our testosterone. Therefore, a real man should be active in communicating with a woman for romance first. Sometimes, subconsciously, a woman courting a man views the man as inferior socially (not physically), because some women see that man as a work in progress (not as a real strong, progressive human being or not as an equally, emotionally strong partner). That is why some men who are courted by women feel lackadaisical in their relationships. They feel entitled when a relationship is about common bound (and mutual sacrifice) not a man depending on a woman for most of his needs.
It's very creepy for a man to be desperate to depend on a woman for his livelihood. It's very embarrassing for a man to give up and just let a woman to court him at every circumstance. So, if a man has trouble in the dating scene, that man should step back (and have self reflection and work on himself emotionally & socially then focus on dating people. That man can focus on his education, occupation, and other facets of his life before having a long term relationship with a woman. Getting advice is great too).
Great post. Some men are misguided and actually believe giving up his manhood (and the whole pursuing, courting etc is a part of manhood- there are things a man learns about himself during this process which also helps him in the larger world) is a testament to his manhood.





shouldn't be a surprise, the ONLY reason blond white females scored the highest is all our lives, we've had that "blond and beautiful" message rammed down our throats. I guarantee you had it been the reverse "blond and ugly" or "dark and beautiful" or even "purple-skinned and lovely," a purple-skinned female would have collected the most money. Let's stop

(continued from post below) Let's stop pretending we don't know that it's about white beauty, while subjecting everyone who isn't white to the default standard which has NOTHING to do with true beauty otherwise blonds wouldn't spend so much time getting a suntan

all the so-called "aware" folks on threads like this know that no BM, including President Obama, is in charge.The folks who decide if WIII will happen are all WM. Let's keep it real.
But some are still falling for the OLD CON GAME of racial scapegoating/distraction instead of facing the FACT that your worst enemy looks like the man or woman in the mirror.
At some point, you will have to make a choice: keep practicing racial politics OR deal with the real enemy to survive. It's just that simple

Bill O’Reilly , Donald Trump, Mitt Romney, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter & the rest of the white racist who support their theory that the President won because he promise things must didn't listen to ole Mitt speeches. He promise a whole lot of things, only problem was all his promises were lies in order to get votes to support & pay back billions of dollars spent on trying to get him elected. Hey Bill I would like to invite you to my home just so you can see just what I have got from the government. I'm pretty sure you would be very surprise at all the things the government has given me over the last 50+ years. As a matter of fact you would be so surprise you ight become a democrat after seeing that not one thing in my home was paid for with government subsidies. Bill if you actually got off your a___  just for a minute & checked you would see that at least 90%+ of Americans put in a lot of hard work to get what they have. Guys like yourslef only think people are getting gifts because that's what you have been taught by your momma & daddy for some stupid reason. So in closing Bill, that offer still stands & be sure to call first because on my land I have a lot of no racist trespassing signs & I would hate for you to be misstaken for one.......
