Black History Month
Myth Nine

All through the month of February we are instructed to celebrate Black History. We are going to do that by correcting some of the myths circulated throughout the month of February. Each day there will be another entry of the myths of black inventions.It appears the attitude of many people in our country are the same as those of the commenter on this blog a few days ago who stated, “Robb its pathetic you try to deny other races inventions(whether they invented it or not).”Actually, I am not trying to deny anybody anything, just posting some corrections to some myths that are circulated by anti-White zealots.
For the record, I am not the author of the following.

Air Conditioner
We are told that Frederick Jones
a black sciencetist invented the
air conditioner in 1949.
No, he didn't!

Dr. Willis Carrier built the first machine to control both the temperature and humidity of indoor air. He received the first of many patents in 1906 (US patent #808897, for the "Apparatus for Treating Air"). In 1911 he published the formulae that became the scientific basis for air conditioning design, and four years later formed the Carrier Engineering Corporation to develop and manufacture AC systems.
