A very humorous and revealing story is told about a group of
white
people
who were fed up with African Americans, so they join
together and wish 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 breathe a sigh of relief.  At last, they
say,
no more crime, drugs, violence and welfare. All of the
blacks have
gone!! Then suddenly, reality sets 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
Mills, a black man, invented the elevator, and
without it one finds great difficulty reaching high floors.

3. There are few if any cars because Richard Spikes, a black man,
invented the automatic gear shift, Joseph Gammell, also black, invented
the
Super Charge System for Internal Combustion Engines, and Garrett A. Morgan
invented the traffic signals.
4. Furthermore, one could not use the rapid transit system because its
precursor was the electric trolley, which was invented by another  black
man, Elbert 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 Purvis invented the fountain pen, Lee Burridge invented
the Type Writing Machine and W. A. Lovette 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 Purvis invented the Hand Stamp and
Phillip 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, stupid,  Lewis
Latimer
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 world be like without the
contributions of Black folks? Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "that by the
time we leave for work, half the world and modern America have been
dependent on the inventions from the minds of Black folks".
Black history includes more than justslavery, Frederick Douglass, Martin
Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, Marcus Garvey and Dubois.
