Black History Month
Myth Twelve & Thirteen

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).” I guess to this person, the truth doesn't matter. Actually, I am not trying to deny anybody anything, just correcting some myths that are circulated by anti-White zealots.
For the record, I am not the author of the following.


Black "historians" like to say thatl the bicyle was invented by Isaac R. Johnson, a black "inventor" in 1899 because of a "patent" he received. The problem is his "invention" is a 100 years after French inventor Comte Mede de Sivrac and Karl von Sauerbronn built primitive versions of the bicycle in 1791 and 1816 respectively. The frame of John Starley's 1885 "safety bicycle" resembled that of a modern bicycle. Read more here:

Cellular Phone

During Black History Month we are sometimes told that Henry T. Sampson invented the cell phone in 1971.
That’s a big fat No!

On July 6, 1971, Sampson and co-inventor George Miley received a patent on a "gamma electric cell" that converted a gamma ray input into an electrical output (Among the first to do that was Bernhard Gross, US patent #3122640, 1964). What, you ask, does gamma radiation have to do with cellular communications technology? The answer: Absoultely nothing! Some multiculturalist pseudo-historian must have seen the words "electric" and "cell" and thought "cell phone."

The father of the cell phone is Martin Cooper who first demonstrated the technology in 1973. Click here:
