Why did customer care....?

Delete my question about black accomplishments? Were they afraid that people would see all the dumb answers?

Update:

"Customer care?

What is this, Walmart?"

I guess they think so.

Update 2:

Hey, Randy, how about listing some of those accomplishments then?

Update 3:

Can nobody list any accomplishments of black people? Usually the liberals throw out at least a few dumb answers!

Update 4:

"Black medical pioneers include Dr. Daniel Hale Williams, an early pioneer of heart surgery, and Dr. Charles Drew, who developed the modern blood bank."

Now THAT is a decent answer. Music and food come with any "culture", and I hardly consider "rap" and "hip hop" music. There are some blacks who have contributed, but as you can see, the list is quite short.

    Maybe your 'question' was as racist as your avatar...

    EDIT: Black people have accomplished many things that have benefitted our society and way of life...Here are a few:

    Otis Boykin invented 28 electronic devices. His devices control such things as computers, guided missiles, and pace makers.

    George Washington Carver invented over 400 products with peanuts. Carver's work literally saved the south by providing an alternative cash crop when the boll weevil moved in and destroyed cotton crops. Carver developed hundreds of applications for farm products important to the economy of the south, including peanuts, sweet potatoes, soybeans and pecans.

    Dr. Charles Richard Drew contributed to the study of blood plasma and set up the first blood bank.

    Lewis Latimer invented the carbon filament common in light bulbs. Latimer worked in the shops of both Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell.

    Jan Ernst Matzeliger, a relative unknown to most Americans, invented a shoe making machine that increased shoe production rates by 900%.

    Garrett Morgan invented the gas mask and the first traffic light.

    John P. Moon helped create the devices that store and retrieve data generated by computers. He is Apple Computer's v.p. for peripherals engineering.

    Bessie Blount is a forensic scientist and physical therapist. She invented a device called the portable receptacle support, which allows amputees to feed themselves by biting a tube that delivered one mouthful of food at a time.

    Michael Croslin received more than 40 patents for inventions including a computerized blood pressure machine and an intravenous pump used to dispense exact dosages of medication.

    Cesar, an 18th-century slave, was granted his freedom and a pension by the South Carolina General Assembly for his discovery of a cure for rattlesnake bites.

    Benjamin Carson is a pediatric neurosurgeon renowned for successfully performing the intricate surgery that separated twins conjoined at the head.

    "Ozzie" Williams developed small rocket engines that would steer the lunar landing modules on Project Apollo missions.

    Lawnie Taylor plans and directs programs for the Department of Energy that promote/support commercialization of newly developed solar techniques.

    Because it was offensive and bigoted. The real question is why your account with that nasty ignorant avatar still exists. The site has guidelines for civility and respect, and you're not playing by them.

    I'd suggest that you stop your racist trolling and get some friends, but that probably isn't a viable option in your underground survivalist Neo-Nazi bunker somewhere in Montana.

    Because Yahoo! Answers is full of assholes. They deleted my question asking about what to do about some recent re-occurring vandalisms against my property.

    Stupid Yahoo! Answers overlords.....

    Edit: To the answerer above me, the first black Governor was P.B.S. Pinchback, from Louisiana, in 1872,when the governor died and because he was next in line, he moved up. He was in there for about a month until the Jim Crow laws forced him out of office.

    Because your question and your avatar make you appear to be racist.

    Black American Contributions to America and the World:

    From their earliest presence in North America, Africans and African Americans have contributed literature, art, agricultural skills, foods, clothing styles, music, language, social and technological innovation to American culture. The cultivation and use of many agricultural products in the U.S., such as yams, peanuts, rice, okra, sorghum, grits, watermelon, indigo dyes, and cotton, can be traced to African and African American influences.

    African American music is one of the most pervasive cultural influences in the United States today. Blues, jazz, gospel, hip-hop, R&B, funk, rock-and-roll, soul, techno and many other contemporary American musical forms originated in black communities and have been incorporated into the popular music of almost every culture in the world. The names of famous and influential African American musicians are too numerous to mention.

    African Americans have also had an important role in the world of dance, including art dancers Alvin Ailey and Bill T. Jones, tap dancers Bojangles, Sammy Davis, Savion Glover and the Nicholas Brothers, the "steppers" of black fraternities and sororities, and pop culture dance phenomenon Michael Jackson.

    Famous African American writers and poets include Langston Hughes, James Baldwin, Richard Wright, Zora Neale Hurston, Ralph Ellison, Toni Morrison, and Maya Angelou.

    Famous black artists include Romare Bearden and Aminah Robinson.

    Black medical pioneers include Dr. Daniel Hale Williams, an early pioneer of heart surgery, and Dr. Charles Drew, who developed the modern blood bank.

    Famous black inventors include George Washington Carver, who created nearly 500 agricultural products, Jan Matzeliger, who developed the first machine to mass-produce shoes, Granville Woods, who had 35 patents to improve electric railway systems, Garrett Morgan, who developed the first automatic traffic signal and gas mask, Norbert Rilleux, who created the technique for converting sugar cane juice into white sugar crystals, Lewis Latimer, who created the inexpensive cotton-thread filament that made electric light bulbs practical, Frederick Jones, who patented the air conditioner, and Lloyd Quarterman, who worked on the creation of the atomic bomb.

    In 1967, civil rights attorney Thurgood Marshall became the first black Supreme Court Justice. In 1989, Douglas Wilder became the nation's first black Governor. In 2001, General Colin Powell became the first black Secretary of State, and his successor, Condoleezza Rice, became the first black woman Secretary of State in 2005.

    In 2008 Barack Obama became the first (self-identified) black American to be elected to the office of President of the United States of America.

    Black folks have tons of accomplishments. The movie Ben Carson will show one of them. His mother had him focus on his studies...

    Zulu warriors were excellent fighters and quickly figured strategy.

    When the Civil war ended, only 2% of Blacks could read...now it is much higher.

    I don't think color is all that important.

    "It is nice to be important but more important to be nice."

    Source(s): A pediatric neurosurgeon of world-renown, and a mentor to countless individuals of all ages, Benjamin S. Carson, Sr., M.D., carries with him his message of hope for and faith in the human spirit and the remarkable ability of the human brain. To all who say that circumstances in their lives have made personal success impossible, Dr. Carson, director of pediatric neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, is living proof that perseverance, prayer, and self-respect, combined with a devotion to acquiring knowledge, can overcome any obstacles in one's way. Today, Ben Carson, M.D., operates on more than 300 children every year at Johns Hopkins Children's Center in Baltimore, Maryland. He is sought out around the world for his expertise in separating conjoined twins and conducting brain surgery to control seizures, with an emphasis on the use of cerebral hemispherectomies, in which half of the brain is removed to stop intractable seizures. A recipient of numerous awards and honors, the author of three popular books, and the co-founder, with his wife Candy, of a non-profit organization to help hard-working youth fund a college education, he enjoys a life rich in accomplishments and deep satisfaction. His life today is far removed from its beginning in the inner cities of Detroit and Boston. It has been of his own making, thanks to a mother and a host of individuals who expected the very best from him.
