America created on the backs of blacks?
This isn't egypt and we aren't surrounded by pyramids...wrong slaves you f**king retard.
America was created by stealing land from the Native Americans and was very well established before slavery became the everyday trend. Slaves helped the south make money, thats it.
Tell me what did the black people create in this country? (and don't give me peanut butter and some other BS)
Not being racist, just saying you are a dumbass
Happy black history month everyone.
Wow. Ignorance in abundance. Do you have any idea how much the U.S. economy benefitted from the trade of cotton to other countries, namely the U.K.? Cotton helped establish this country economically. It didn't just make money for southern land owners.
And as for things blacks created in this country..............
African American inventors have created many widely used devices in the world and have contributed to international innovation. Norbert Rillieux created the technique for converting sugar cane juice into white sugar crystals. Moreover, Rillieux left Louisiana in 1854 and went to France, where he spent ten years working with the Champollions deciphering Egyptian hieroglyphics from the Rosetta Stone. Most slave inventors were nameless, such as the slave owned by the Confederate President Jefferson Davis who designed the ship propeller used by the Confederate navy.
Chuck Berry in Írebro, Berry is considered a pioneer of American Rock and roll
B.B. King is a blues guitarist and songwriter acclaimed for his expressive singing and guitar playing.By 1913 over 1,000 inventions were patented by black Americans. Among the most notable inventors were Jan Matzeliger, who developed the first machine to mass-produce shoes, and Elijah McCoy, who invented automatic lubrication devices for steam engines. Granville Woods had 35 patents to improve electric railway systems, including the first system to allow moving trains to communicate. Garrett A. Morgan developed the first automatic traffic signal and gas mask.
Lewis Howard Latimer invented an improvement for the incandescent light bulb. More recent inventors include Frederick McKinley Jones, who invented the movable refrigeration unit for food transport in trucks and trains. Lloyd Quarterman worked with six other black scientists on the creation of the atomic bomb (code named the Manhattan Project.) Quarterman also helped develop the first nuclear reactor, which was used in the atomically powered submarine called the Nautilus.
A few other notable examples include the first successful open heart surgery, performed by Dr. Daniel Hale Williams, and the air conditioner, patented by Frederick McKinley Jones. Dr. Mark Dean holds three of the original nine patents on the computer on which all PCs are based. More current contributors include Otis Boykin, whose inventions included several novel methods for manufacturing electrical components that found use in applications such as guided missile systems and computers, and Colonel Frederick Gregory, who was not only the first black astronaut pilot but the person who redesigned the c*ckpits for the last three space shuttles. Gregory was also on the team that pioneered the microwave instrumentation landing system.
Plus jazz, blues. rock and hip-hop music. Not bad for a group of people who were enslaved and then discriminated against for most of this country's history. Fall back racist.
