Black and White

There is a tendency for some in our society to lump people into groups, cultures, and races, and even religions and then judge them only because of their color and their religion

If you take time to see individual accomplishments, great or small, collective lumping, under the banner of different or regional prejudice, appears foolish.

Every time you turn on a light think of Lewis Latimer. He improved the electric lamp.

Norbert Rillieau was special. He helped revolutionize sugar refining.

Andrew Beard invented the automatic coupler for railroad cars.

Garrett Morgan patented the automatic traffic light back in the early 19-hundreds.

The treatment of glaucoma and arthritis was advanced by chemist Percy Julian.

All of these individuals worked for the good of all mankind. They all just happen to be black.

I've seen the trash that permeates the Internet under the guise of truth. Do not take my word for it, but do your own diligence and before you judge or pass the lies on, check it out for yourself. It is not difficult. It just takes a little time, a little effort and a little common sense.
