I was flicking through the channels and hit a BHM cartoon on Nickelodeon which
was stating the HISTORICAL LIE that peanut butter was invented by George
Washington Carver.

The fact is, Carver did research on the uses of peanuts, but it was a WHITE
doctor in Ohio who actually invented peanut paste as a food.

So why do we teach Afrocentric lies to little niglettes? Is it like Santa
Claus and the Easter Bunny? We tell kids bullshit just to make them feel good
and assume that someday, when they grow up, they'll realise the cold hard truth?
By then we assume they'll be mature enough to accept it.

Alas, unlike white children, niggers never grow up, never mature mentally and
never accept the fact that niggers did NOTHING of value except pick cotton.

And that, my (white) friends, is why we need NG's like AFN to bring reality
crashing down on the burrheaded swine.

You would be surprised by number and uses of Black invention. Starting
in the industrial age to the present, they have devised either
inventions or processess that have either improved an earlier white
invention, or created an entirely new creation.
I compiled a list for my nephew, who was doing a report for school. My
nephew took the floppy with him, but I'll post a list of these
inventions when I get them back.
I was really stunned by the number AND the sophisticated
applications,even as far back as the 19th century.
One really stands out in my mind.
Back in the late 19th century, there was no way to communicate from a
moving train,either to the outside world or to other trains,except by
dropping messages off or tooting the whistle.
Well sir, Edison and others worked on the problem for years without
success. Then around 1880 or so,a Black telegraph operator devised some
type of relay switch or circuit which finally made train to train and
train to point communication by telegraph and telephone possible. I
believe that Edison sued him, but the courts ruled in favor of the Black
inventor,and eventually Edison dropped his lawsuit. This is highly
unusual for the 19th century, considering the racist attitudes back
then,AND the high regard everyone had for Edison.
I'll have the full list in a few days.

get your facts straight before popping off. It will save you much

Hey dickless, I'm sure it was an oversight on your part but, would you mind
posting a URL with a picture of this gentleman (snicker) to verify this

MIT web site on inventors and inventions:

"Woods found himself fighting patent suits filed by none other than Thomas
Edison. Woods eventually won,"

"the multiplex telegraph. A success in the powerful railroad industry of
the late nineteenth century, the device not only helped dispatchers locate
trains, but also allowed moving trains to communicate by telegraph."

Review on the great Negro inventor Granville T. Woods:
Granville T. Woods (a Negro): Over 60 patents. Invented the Synchronous
Multiplex Railway Telegraph (1887), for the purpose of averting accidents
by keeping each train informed of the whereabouts of the one immediately
ahead or following it. Inventor of the Light Switch and the Incubator.
Alexander Graham Bell (a white man) invented the first telephone. But
amplification technology was not advanced enough in his day for an
electromagnetic transducer to be practical. Granville woods, a Black man
from Cleveland, Ohio developed the powdered carbon transducer that was
used in production telephones until modern amplification made it
unnecessary. The great Thomas Edison asked Woods to come work with him.

In 1888 Granville Woods developed and patented a system for overhead
electric conducting lines for railroads, which aided in the development of
the overhead railroad system found in contemporary metropolitan cities,
such as Chicago, St. Louis, and New York City.

In his early thirties, he (Woods) became interested in thermal power and
steam-driven engines. And, in 1889, he filed his first patent for an
improved steam-boiler furnace. In 1892, a complete Electric Railway System
(U.S. 463,020) was operated at Coney Island, NY. The railway system had no
exposed wires, secondary batteries, or slotted causeway -- all previously
necessary for electric railways.

The Induction Telegraph System used the physics principle of
electromagnetic induction. The Woods Induction Telegraph, a large oblong
coil, or helix, was suspended from the train. A current was sent through
the helix, generating field moved along with it. The movement of the
magnetic coil induced a current in stationary wires hung parallel to the
track. Therefore, telegraph signals sent through the helix were also sent
through the wires to stations and other trains.

The American Catholic Tribune, in 1888, lauded Woods as the greatest
person knowledgeable in electricity in the world. His inventive genius
was wide spread.
