    As for Garret Morgan. He didn't invent the traffic light or gas mask. There were versions of these things before his. He created versions of both that were improvements on them.

    Mexicans love black women... I be seeing them at the strip clubs.


    Mexican women can be kinda picky, though... they prefer their men more.

    Puerto Ricans still love us, though.

    Wrong. Martin Cooper invented the first cell phone.

    And the 'Guitar' has been around in one form or another since the 800's (9th century) ...

    Your list has a LOT of errors.

    Mexicans (Aztecs) are an inferior race. Sad but true.

    Top races are the Nordics - West Africans - Far east Asians.

    My girlfriend is Japanese :D seriously it kicks ass.

    If something were to ever happen I don't think I'd be able to date another black or white woman again,,,

    Once you go asian you don't go back :(

    The point of the thread is that many cultures are without their inventors, their artists, their music, their books, their language.

    I went to an aboriginal art show and the most captivating was the notation:

    to the aboriginal people, we are living in the age of post-colonization and the world has never looked as it does today - EVER. We are disconnected from our cultures and nature. We live as man not as human being in the world and these are two different ways to live. Knowing your culture is not to perpetuate division but it creates a greater acceptance because their is no fear or insecurity.

    We all came from nations of great leaders, not all believed that life was of little value.

    No one keeps you in America. So, you`re free to leave and live in Africa if you wish, no one will stop you from learning the language of your ancestors and sure, you`ll be better off without medicines, air conditioners and an abundant food supply.

    by the way...

    If it`s not division to know your culture how come white nationalists in Europe demonized? Do they not have a right to their land and culture? #

    And spare me the thoughtful aborginal shit, look at the Aztecs or the Mohawks or the Maya - they were fucking brutal to each other. The killing started centuries before the Spanish showed up.

    I always find these lists to be quite patronising. There's always a bunch of errors and the inclusion of trivial items such as the ice cream scoop, makes it all a bit laughable.

    I'll tell you why they're "demonized" - cuz after 2 MVP seasons, a Finals appearance, the putting of the city on the basketball map, and one hell of a great summer basketball camp for kids, LeBron's jersey was burned.

    And you know what? He deserved it. The guy moves his family to Miami and plays basketball there and has fun and so on - meanwhile the value of the Cavs franchise goes down %50.

    How's the owner supposed to feel? Did LeBron even consider that? Dan Gilbert's got kids too.
