    The is only one Black "inventor" ....... the rest are made-up by the NAACP , al sharpton , jesse jackson and the like !! This site debunks the "Black Inventor" myth with the names of the REAL inventors !!

    Back to the lonely "one Black inventor" ..........

    Rochester Byrnes Williamson (1897 - 1988) , a resident of Maryland , invented the Nose Hair Trimmer when he was 34 years old . It was an instant success which netted him almost $60,000 ....... a princely sum in the `30`s ........... especially for a Black !

    When he was 88 years of age , he met and married the former Edna Freebish ....... a White 22 year old stripper from Schenectady , after a short whirlwind courtship .

    Edna spent Rochester`s fortune on lavish clothing , drinking , and gambling .......... and when the money was gone , so was Edna !!

    Rochester died completely broke on july 17th , 1988 .

    The funeral was attended by only 3 people ......... his Butcher ..... a Tax Collecter , and an old lady who wandered in by mistake ...............

    I work in a library and we have books SPECIFICALLY on black inventors. They're somewhere in the 620s, if you wanna go to your local and look it up.
