Blacks may not have the background to grasp the extent of our achievements. Still, permit me a brief and very incomplete list of things white people have done or invented:
Euclidean geometry. Parabolic geometry. Hyperbolic geometry. Projective geometry. Differential geometry. Calculus: Limits, continuity, differentiation, integration. Physical chemistry. Organic chemistry. Biochemistry. Classical mechanics. The indeterminacy principle. The wave equation. The Parthenon. The Anabasis. Air conditioning. Number theory. Romanesque architecture. Gothic architecture. Information theory. Entropy. Enthalpy. Every symphony ever written. Pierre Auguste Renoir. The twelve-tone scale. The mathematics behind it, twelfth root of two and all that. S-p hybrid bonding orbitals. The Bohr-Sommerfeld atom. The purine-pyrimidine structure of the DNA ladder. Single-sideband radio. All other radio. Dentistry. The internal-combustion engine. Turbojets. Turbofans. Doppler beam-sharpening. Penicillin. Airplanes. Surgery. The mammogram. The Pill. The condom. Polio vaccine. The integrated circuit. The computer. Football. Computational fluid dynamics. Tensors. The Constitution. Euripides, Sophocles, Aristophanes, Aeschylus, Homer, Hesiod. Glass. Rubber. Nylon. Roads. Buildings. Elvis. Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. (OK, that’s nerve gas, and maybe we didn’t really need it.) Silicone. The automobile. Really weird stuff, like clathrates, Buckyballs, and rotaxanes. The Bible. Bug spray. Diffie-Hellman, public-key cryptography, and RSA. Et cetera.

This post has been pulled because the blurb was a hoax.
Here is a relevant comment from JD Reed:
Surely you have been told now that the supposed facts in the blurb about the 2012 election. Most of the “facts” are false. Count the states: 19 and 29 states adds up to 48. So did the other 2 abstain? Actually it was Obama 26 to Romney’s 24. The population figures, the square mile figures, the homicide figures, are also way off. No reputable historian would write the supposed progression that nations go through, and Tytler (his real name, not Tyler) didn’t. Also he taught in 1787, not 1887. Professor Olson also denies saying what this rumor attributed to him, as he should because it’s largely false as well. If your readers are well informed I am puzzled why they haven’t told you how erroneous this is.
Or have they?
In point of fact Romney did win a lot more counties than Obama and million more square miles. And professor Olson has, or so it is reported, admitted to forwarding the blurb and you do stand a greater chance of being murdered in an Obama county as a Romney one. But the numbers are inflated or distorted and the blurb generally a farrago of half-truths. I suppose I got seduced by the story it told. Which goes to show you can destroy a good even a true story by making up facts to support it. E.g. Hillary Clinton did indeed land in Yugoslavia during the war there where she was greeted by brass and lot of witnesses and peacefully driven off to wherever she had to go. But a couple of months later she was talking about jumping out of a helicopter under sniper fire and having to run for cover. Hence no credit for doing whatever she did in the Balkans just a lot of laughter at the lie.

“Nothing says hate like not baking a cake.”
By anonymous in a comment section I can’t recall where.
Look at the photos of men forty years ago and compare them to what you see about town. Many of the men today are complete slobs. Women too. But at least there aren’t any fat women with really hairy shoulders wearing sleeveless dirty tee shirts walking around. Or eating a slice of pizza with one hand while scratching their crotch with the other.
What kind of mothers did these men have? Sixties’ Hippies most likely. Or maybe those short women in a black dress and a mustache sitting on lawn chairs in Brooklyn doorways smoking a De Nobili cigar back in the Fifties whom we used to call Balkan Brutes.
Hmmm? Naw! I’ll go with the Hippies.
In a letter to Univision:
… Trump added: “Please congratulate your Mexican Government officials for having made such outstanding trade deals with the United States. However, inform them that should I become President, those days are over. We are bringing jobs back to the U.S. Also, a meaningful border will be immediately created, not the laughingstock that currently exists.”
In answer to your question – yes I will vote for Trump singing the words to We Shall OverComb Some Day – all the way to the polling station. And back.
Under the category – You Can’t Make This Stuff Up – The Independent reports today that a study which shows a fall in sun spot activity over the past few years closely mirrors what happened in the sixteen hundreds when less heat reached the earth and we experienced a “mini ice age.” Further that this phenomena will peak (or trough depending upon your point of view) at about 2050. But that it “will not save us from global warming.”
This statement from scientists is the best example seen yet of how in an effort to be seen as politically correct, perhaps to preserve their jobs or funding, they will so contort themselves they resemble the circus “Rubber Man” putting his foot in his mouth from over his shoulder.
So let’s get this straight – the earth cooling will not save us from the earth warming up.
Read the piece here.
Only rocky white beaches and ruins. Europe should cut them loose instead of pounding more billions into a country that doesn’t have much blood flowing above its neck.
Fact: Comparing crime rates between America and Britain is fundamentally flawed. In America, a gun crime is recorded as a gun crime. In Britain, a crime is only recorded when there is a final disposition (a conviction). All unsolved gun crimes in Britain are not reported as gun crimes, grossly undercounting the amount of gun crime there. 22 To make matters worse, British law enforcement has been exposed for falsifying criminal reports to create falsely lower crime figures, in part to preserve tourism. 23
To which should be added that the Brits are many more times like to plead crimes down to civil disorder complaints on the order of a traffic ticket and so it’s not uncommon for a violent mugger to have eighty or ninety arrests.
“Whatever the peculiarities of the American situation, however, our challenge is nothing less than the challenge of civilization itself. If we simply consume civilization rather than produce it, it will not last.”
From Matthew Cochran on first fatherhood in the Federalist Blog see original article here.
The Federal Food and Drug Administration has banned trans-fats. Well banned them three years out so you still have time to clog your arteries. Many people view excluding trans-fats from your diet as a good thing and I guess I do too. But the risks of trans-fats are well known, so those consuming them are making an informed decision and the real question becomes : If this is a free country why can’t you eat what you want?
Besides everybody familiar with the process of banning knows that it won’t stop with trans-fats. Butter is a target, whole milk, wild salmon (high lead content), white bread, eggs, the areas in which your government can restrict what you eat are endless, only limited the imagination of those conceived and dedicated to the proposition that your health is their concern.
At the root of this is a left-wing view of society a zero sum game. Marxists take a snapshot of some resource like health care, divide it up to determine everybody’s “fair share” and if you knowingly eat Kumquats and make yourself sick maybe you’re taking more health care than you’re entitled to.
The freedom loving have a different point of view, that there is no finite amount of anything. That a free people create things as they want them. And nobody least of all some miserable socialist with a trained ration clerk’s mind has any business telling us we can’t.
Or cannot eat a boxcar load of Twinkies if we choose.
