    Blacks invented the Kitchen table?!?!?!

    SERIOUSLY?! THE EFIN' KITCHEN TABLE?!

    a cave man probably put a fish on a rock and called that his kitchen table.

    you should research better.

    Traffic Signal/Garrett Morgan 1923 .....WRONG! Invented in London in 1868 by JP Knight Peanut Butter/George Washigton Carver WRONG again! Peanuts are native to the world and have been mashed into paste by the Aztecs. "Peanut Butter comes from the US patent#306727 issued to Marcellus Gilmore Edson of Quebec Canada The Blood Bank/ Charles Drew 1940, .....WRONG! It was Dr. Oswald H Robertson US Army during WW 1 Air Brakes/Granville Woods 1922...WRONG again! George Westinghouse in 1869 US Patent#88929

    Time and time again these "black american inventions" have been disproved. Like the traffic signal for example... was an invention that originated in England.

    Look man, obviously have an inferiority complex or you wouldn't try so hard to bash others and make your own "race" seem better. Black people have a very distinct culture both the Africans and the African Americans. I respect both, I do not feel in any way that anyone is superior or inferior. But any moron can post something on the internet or make a website claiming a bunch of bullshit. Just because a webpage exists saying it's true doesn't make it so.

    @little miss fire starter: right so tell me this - when the English, Dutch and Spaniards set up their colonies, built their homes on this great new continent, what did they put their plates on when they sat down for dinner? Did it really take a Black American to "invent" the kitchen table, given how short the American history is?

    Oh and by the way, any Asian 'd be better than whatever the lousy scum you are.

    Troll much?

    Okay as I go through this list I see that you have many things incorrect on this list and you are missing even more. Where is Carver at? he invented more stuff than this whole list, but, you only have a handful of his inventions. Where is Muhat at? Where is MLK jr.? Where is Feeps? Where is Mulholl? Where is Johanson? You have none of the people that invented some of the greatest things of all time, and instead, you try to regail what?

    I hope that you know what you are making just yourself look like...

    I do plan to report all of your questions and get you IP address banned from this site perminantly.

    Rutgers, a slab of rock on the ground is what they practically still use in Asia, so I understand your confusion. Thats not a kitchen table.

    It may be a small thing, but it just shows how dumb no one else was to think of those things.

    There was an episode on t.v of some show I only say once and they had to live a month without ANY black inventions and they couldn't do it! I hate people who act like black people have never done anything. They are pitiful pieces of shyt with self esteem issues who can't admit to another human doing something good. ******* bastards!

    Yeah pretty sad. If they made a list of excuses they came up with though, you would have a list a mile long.
