This was e-mailed to me by my father. I read this awhile back, as well.
While non-Blacks may find this a bit contrived, the truth *is*.


A very humorous and revealing story is told about a group of white people
who were fed up with African

Americans, so they joined together and wished themselves away. They
passed through a deep dark tunnel and emerged in sort of a twilight zone
where there is an America without black people.

At first these white people breathed a sigh of relief. At last, they said, No
more crime, drugs, violence and welfare.

All of the blacks have gone! Then suddenly, reality set in. The "NEW
AMERICA" is not America at all, only a barren land.

  1. There are very few crops that have flourished because the nation was built
    on a slave-supported system.

  2. There are no cities with tall skyscrapers because Alexander Mils, a black
    man, invented the elevator, and without it, one finds great difficulty
    reaching higher floors.

  3. There are few if any cars because Richard Spikes, a black man, invented
    the automatic gearshift, Joseph Gambol, also black, invented the Super
    Charge System for Internal Combustion Engines, and Garrett A. Morgan, a
    black man, invented the traffic signals.

  4. Furthermore, one could not use the rapid transit system because its
    procurer was the electric trolley, which was invented by another black
    man, Albert R. Robinson.

  5. Even if there were streets on which cars and a rapid transit system could
    operate, they were cluttered with paper because an African American,
    Charles Brooks, invented the street sweeper.

  6. There were few if any newspapers, magazines and books because John
    Love invented the pencil sharpener, William Purveys invented the fountain
    pen, and Lee Barrage invented the Type Writing Machine and W. A. Love
    invented the Advanced Printing Press. They were all, you guessed it, Black.

  7. Even if Americans could write their letters, articles and books, they would
    not have been transported by mail because William Barry invented the
    Postmarking and Canceling Machine, William Purveys invented the Hand
    Stamp and Philip Downing invented the Letter Drop.

  8. The lawns were brown and wilted because Joseph Smith invented the Lawn
    Sprinkler and John Burr the Lawn Mower.

  9. When they entered their homes, they found them to be poorly ventilated
    and poorly heated You see, Frederick Jones invented the Air Conditioner
    and Alice Parker the Heating Furnace. Their homes were also dim. But of
    course, Lewis Lattimer later invented the Electric Lamp, Michael Harvey
    invented the lantern, and Granville T. Woods invented the Automatic Cut
    off Switch. Their homes were also filthy because Thomas W. Steward
    invented the Mop and Lloyd P. Ray the Dust Pan.

  10. Their children met them at the door- barefooted, shabby, motley and
    unkempt. But what could one expect? Jan E. Matzelinger invented the Shoe
    Lasting Machine, Walter Sammons invented the Comb, Sarah Boone
    invented the Ironing Board, and George T. Samon invented the Clothes
    Dryer.

  11. Finally, they were resigned to at least have dinner amidst all of this turmoil.
    But here again, the food had spoiled because another Black Man, John
    Standard invented the refrigerator.


Now, isn't that something?

What would this country be like without the contributions of Blacks, as
African-Americans?

Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "by the time we leave for work, Americans
have depended on the inventions from the minds of Blacks."

Black history includes more than just slavery. It includes great people like
Frederick Douglass, Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, Marcus Garvey and
W.E.B. Dubois.


Our presence here is a far stronger one than any other race in this land.
We had a more fervant impact on this country's histroy than any other.
that is simply: the truth.
