    These accomplishments were not BECAUSE the people were/are black. These people were just smart, capable, and determined enough to accomplish something significant. The fact that they were black is completely irrelevant.

  • I think that God knew the position Blacks would be in, in our World today. Being made to feel inferior. Which they aren't.

    That is why I feel he made sure some things are in Scripture, to

    be revealed in the present.

    It said that the Queen of Sheba went to visit King Solomon.

    (1 Kings 10). In the Song of Solomon. It is said that Solomon wrote about his love to a woman. But if you read it. It is mostly

    a woman writing to King Solomon. In Song of Solomon 1:5,

    she says, "I am black". (Queen of Sheba?) King James version only. The racists took it out of the newer Bibles.

    In Matthew 12:42. Jesus Christ said that the Queen of the South,

    (Queen of Sheba), will rise up in the Judgement. And be a judge

    over the wicked.

    Source(s): Read the "Kebra Negast" from Ethiopia.

    Once again the focus is only on once racial group. I'm sure whites, Jews, hispanics, and asians have a similar list as well. I think I speak for alot of whites when I say that the problem is not with all blacks. Just with the few that are no longer seeking equality but rather supremacy.

    Hello, I don't have any racist remarks for you. Are you wanting some? I agree with you! But I also believe that there are people from all backgrounds and walks of life that have contributed to the world in good ways and bad ways.

    I'm sure you had to do your research on that. But I agree with you. The black race has contributed a lot. All people as a whole make it even better.

    Hey, good for you!!

    Hold on to that list just in case you need it again.

    BTW...did you know that Kevlar (what is inside bullet proof vests) was actually invented by a woman?
