"was ANYTHING actually taught to you about black people"

To be honest, when I learn about an inventor I don't really give a s.hit whether he or she is black, white, asian, or whatever. It doesn't affect anything. Skin color doesn't matter or define a person. I know Edison was white because he is so ubiquitously famous that I have seen pictures of him, not because I learned about him during "white history".

Dude, I am totally on board with black people making tons of contributions to society. The point is, I can say white people invented phones, cars, planes, televisions, computers, the internet, electricity, light bulbs, etc. Your list had things like adjustable shackles and folding chairs. Those are good things and contributions to society, but certainly not things I couldn't live without. So when you use words like "most" it is ridiculously hyperbolic.

OldOllie: again, do you want me to break out the whole list? that isnt going to happen. you are all big boys. look it up yourselves.

the point of those simple things on the list was the fact that those are things around the house. you may have missed that the first 3 or 4 times i said it.

did you guys actually do black history month learning DURING black history month in school? was ANYTHING actually taught to you about black people OTHER than the fact that we went through slavery and jim crow?

Wow, CB! Folding Chairs? A work cabinet? Ventilated shoes? I never even realized. I guess that really puts our guys to shame -- guys like Aristotle, Hipparcos, Gallileo, Copernicus, Kepler, Newton, Leibnitz, Franklin, Maxwell, Bell, Marconi, Farnsworth, Watt, Fulton, Kelvin, Faraday, Tesla, Edison, Ford, Curie, Roentgen, Einstein, Plank, Bohr, Heisenberg, Gell-Mann, Fermi, Avogadro, Hubble, Guth, Oppenheimer, Fleming, Salk, Pasteur, Reynolds, Boltzman, Compton, Lister, Watson and Crick, Shockley, Berners-Lee and Cailliau -- I could go on, but I doubt that I'll ever be able to beat that folding chair thing.

collegebound-"Black people have invented some pretty important poo."

Yes, but not most of the stuff in my house.

collegebound-"we aren't stupid because we are stupid"

Actually, if you're stupid, it's because YOU are stupid (proverbial 'you'). But I get what you're saying. Someone is not stupid because of what race they are. This is correct.

collegebound-"we are stupid by choice"

Yes.

collegebound-"and by "the man's" design."

No. There is no 'the man' making anyone stupid. I know quite a bit of liberal 'education' that does so, but no 'the man'.

"just double checked. black people have still invented and/or made improvements to a lot/most things around your house."

You are certifiably f.ucking nuts. You could say "a lot" and I would say absolutely, black people have made lots of important contributions. "Most"? Do you know what the word most means? It means more than half. I have 10s of thousands of items in my home. Your list included 3 things I have in my home.

realized i may have went too far by saying "most things in your household."

what i should have said was something along the lines of this. Black people have invented some pretty important poo. we aren't stupid because we are stupid. we are stupid by choice and by "the man's" design.

"If you believe anything you just said is factually accurate, perhaps you should stop simply being bound, and actually go to college."

OR you could do some research and figure out that:

Nathaniel Alexander made the folding chair.

John H Allen - Pattern generator for simulating image generation.

Bertram F Baker - Automatic Cashier.

David Baker - Interliners to Prevent Tire Punctures.

Ambrose Caliver - Work Cabinet.

Robert Leon Campbell - Valve Gear for Steam Engines.

George R. Carruthers - Far-ultraviolet Camera and Spectrograph.

Henry Falkner - Ventilated Shoe.

Robert F. Flemmings Jr. - Guitar.

Sylvester J. Fletcher - Refuse container.

Irvin S. Frye - Adjustable Shackles. (aint that a bitch...a black man made handcuffs...)

Albert Y Garner - Flame retardant.

Ralph Garner - Anti-theft/anti-fraud system utilizing specialized merchandise tag/label and uniq

Been reading the first bunch of posts...

Here's the basic thing. Let's set aside the guns, evolution, abortion, etc. debate, and look at an issue that actually affects the world in a "make it or break it" kind of way.

There are more people on this earth than ever in the history of man. We have no way to leave this planet. Maybe, (BIG MAYBE) someday we will be able to go to other planets and relieve the crowding. Right now, this is all we have.

Capitalism as we know it in this country is based on many things, one of which is GROWTH. We always need more people, more houses, more cars, more this and that because that is what makes our economy tick.

We can't keep going on like that. We can't, we will drown in our own filth.

Many ways to end this problem. The old fashioned way of war and plague is horrible, but fairly effective. Perhaps a new-fangled way like, say, talking to each other and agreeing to not have so many babies, so much

But that would also mean conservative capitalism as we know it would have to yield to something a lot more along the lines of socialism as we go to a simpler, sharing society where grow, grow, grow! becomes, maintain, sustain, live carefully.

Or, we can just keep growing, and let the ugly scene be played out. If I have one core reason to be a liberal, this would be it. We can't live as though it's 1900, it's not. We can't act like we have all the resources and space in the world. We don't.

"Actually, we're in the top quartile, as you can see here. If you want to know why we're not higher on the list, look at the bottom of the list."

good thing black people invented a lot/most of the things around in your household then eh?

just becuase we live simply in other countries due to lack of resources doesn't make us stupid. if anything it makes us smarter. us here in the US probably couldn't go a month without the technologies and luxuries that we have. most people in those countries have to go without these things for their ENTIRE lives. if anything they are SMARTER than us. probably healthier for it too.

@HolyGod: So then how do you explain the English? Because they're thick as pigshyt. Most of them can't even tell the difference between "England" and "Great Britain".

There is a study I read that suggests IQs developed faster in environments that were hostile, like europe and asia, because humans needed to innovate with tools, farming practices, and travel to survive. Meanwhile people in nice climates, like africa and south america could live off the land in a very basic matter.

WOW @OldOllie: If that's a realistic chart? It reinforces a lot of stereotypes: both positive and negative...

But isn't that what "natural selection" is all about? You'd think liberals would embrace that, since ONLY GOD would "create us all equal" while Mother Nature would "weed out the weak", eh?

Hahaha holy s.hit. Are you saying America's average IQ is lower because we imported black people? I'm not saying that isn't factually accurate, at least according to this, just kinda ballsy / drated up.

SmagBoy1, you left one group off of your list: parasites, but I guess that would be redundant.

"Murricah is the sole reason humanity's average IQ dropped 30 points"

No doubt that the level of proud ignorance in this country is staggering, but a lot of the best and brightest still live in America, whether they were born here or immigrated here.
