      TMarshall did not invent the fire extinguisher in 1872. It had already been invented by 1723.

    Black People Inventions

  • 4 years ago

    You have to understand just because somebody filed a patent doesn't mean they were the inventor, a lot of whites stole black peoples inventions if you find an actual news clipping in the era of slavery, you will see a lot of the slaves purchased were skilled laborers. Which is the reason why America could become a super power. Washington D.C. was designed by black and built by slaves, including the White House.

    • David4 years agoReport

      Them slave,s had nothing to do with America becoming a super power. Next thing you know you people will be claiming a black man invented the whole world. That would be impossible. The Indochinese were here before the black man. OK proud black man. And they did not come from the black man.

      Not a single item listed was invented by a black man. They were all invented by the White Man. And everyone, including the proud black man knows it. Stop lying. Why are you people so afraid of the truth. Every word out of your mouth,s is a bullshit lie. And you people know it.

    The ink pen was not invented by a black person, but from a European,Croatian named Slavoljub PENkala (hence the short name - PEN) in the 19th century. Stop lying and spreading disinformation!

    • Not the ink pen but an inproved fountain pen, patent #419,065 1/7/1890
