LIFE WITHOUT BLACK PEOPLE

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 <!–

2. There are no cities with \r\ntall skyscrapers \r\nbecause Alexander Mils, a \r\nblack man, invented the elevator, and without it, one finds great difficulty \r\nreaching higher floors.


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


4. Furthermore, one could not use the rapid transit system because \r\nits procurer was the electric \r\ntrolley, which was invented by another black man, Albert R. Robinson. \r\n

7. Even if Americans could \r\nwrite their letters, articles and books, they would not have been transported by \r\nmail because William \r\nBarry invented the Postmarking and Canceling Machine, William Purveys invented the \r\nHand Stamp and Philip Downing invented the \r\nLetter Drop. \r\n

    Makes you also wonder what sort of crazy animals would have evolved had the native american population not been available as such incredible hunters and predators. The landscape of america has been transformed on so many levels by so many different kinds of people across the world. Maybe someday we will appreciate it on a global and internal level. =)

      yes girl! people are integral. i saw Dr Angelou last night and she spoke about her amazement when the mayor of Little Rock showed up at her Uncle Willy’s funeral! apparently this hemiplegic, not very literate man (Uncle Willy) took him (mayor) under his wing as a young child. He was the son of a blind mother.

      And later another man (police chief or something) came out and told her that he was the son of a deaf mother and Uncle Willy had taught him also.

      So, the moral of the story is that you never know what your actions will accomplish. You never know what other people around you can do, so radiate beauty, strength, power, sincerity and integrity to others. And you can never underestimate the actions of peoples around you…
