All jokes aside... this is why a majority of technologies in the world have been created by African Americans or people of darker skin.
Black people have been imbedded with a degree of resourcefulness.
And as they say, necessity is the drive of invention.
When you have nothing, and need everything, people get VERY creative.

not really an invention at all... watch almost any bird.

yes, but also at the cost of sounding a wee bit racist, notice just about every area primarily inhabited by blacks is a shithole...leading to needs such as cow urine, etc.

jamaica...africa...south bronx....DC......haiti.....you get the idea.

I presume you have some sort of set of numbers when you speak of a "majority."
The theory of Guns, Germs and Steel puts forward an interesting proposition as to why a number of people of darker skin, as you put it, were unable to technologically progress any further. Due to being unable to escape subsistence farming, they had a diminshed opportunity for innovation. They only pushed the boundaries of resourcefulness because they remained in an agriculturally poor location. People in other parts of the world did not require such ingenuity because they settled where they had something to start off with.
Therefore you may still argue that some "people of darker skin" had ingenuity but you would therefore have to concede that others must then have had common sense.

^you know chairman, i was about to say the exact same thing, but i was too lazy ;).. lol

Well, actually, live have unlimited opportunities for inovation within the environment they live in. Their not developing other "advanced" technologies, such as iron metallurgy, more advanced agricultural techniques, etc.. was also limited by where they lived. Didn't it say as much in that book? Which I have read, by the way.

Okay then Hank, to put Chairmans words in a better perspective. I could see geography being a reasonable excuse for the technological lack of advancement of a people too, but only if they lived in some severely physically limiting zone like Siberia or Easter Island?
This on the other hand is Africa, a continent that was fought over for several hundred years because of its rich resources...I guess my point not everybody is as ingenuitve and open minded as you claim, I mean throughout history people have been known to travel great distances in search of a hospitable place to live - why settle for one where you have to cover your self in excrement to be protected from the elements?

actually redbaron, if you've read the book it makes a very good case that something as simple as a lack of domesticable cereal grains or domesticable large mammals could make all the difference between a culture that forms immunity to disease, produces steel, and has the ability to wage long-term and long-distance war.

yeah completely ignore the good things and focus on the bad, we all know every other race doesnt do anything wrong. Having children with your sisters and cousins is always cool.
