What The World Would Be Like If God Hadn’t Made Black People. by PrinceTolu(m): 8:42pm On Sep 28, 2006
What the world would be like if God hadn’t made black people.

This is the story of a little boy named Theo who woke up one morning and asked his mum “How would the world be without black people?”
Well his mother thought about that for a moment and then said Son, follow me around today and lets just see what it would be like if there were no Black people in the world. Mom said, now get dressed and we will get started.

Theo ran to his room to put on his clothes and shoes. His mother took one look at him and said Theo, where are your shoes? And those clothes are wrinkled, Son, I must iron them. But when she reached for the ironing board, it was no longer there. You see, Sarah Boone a black woman invented the ironing board and Jan E. Matzeliger; a black man invented the shoe lasting machine.

Oh well, she said, please go and do something to your hair. Theo ran to his room to comb his hair but the comb was not there. You see, Walter Sammons, a black man, invented the comb. Theo decided to just brush his hair, but the brush was gone. You see, Lydia O. Newman, a black woman, invented the brush. Well this was a sight. No shoes, wrinkled clothes, hair a mess. Even mom’s hair, without hair care inventions of Madam C. J. Walker, well you get the picture.

Mom told Theo, let’s do our chores around the house and then take a trip to the grocery store. Theo’s job was to sweep the floor. He swept and swept and swept. When he reached for the dustpan, it was not there. You see, Lloyd P. Ray, a black man, invented the dustpan. So he swept his pile of dirt in a corner and left it there. He decided to mop the floor but the mop was gone. You see, Thomas W. Stewart, a black man, invented the mop.

Theo yelled to his mom. “Mom, I’m not having any luck!” “Well son”, she said, “let me finish washing these clothes and prepare a list for the grocery store”. When the wash was finished, she went to take the clothes to the clothes dryer but it was not there. You see, George T Sammons, a black man, invented the clothes dryer. Theo ran for the paper and the pencil but noticed the pencil lead was broken. Well he was out of luck because John Love, a black man invented he pencil sharpener. Mom reached for a pen but it was not their because William Purvis, a black man invented the fountain pen. As a matter of fact, Lee Burridge invented the typewriting machine and W.A. Lovett, the advanced printing press. Theo and his mother decided to head out to the market. Well Theo opened the door and noticed the grass was as high as he tall. You see the lawn mower was invented by John Burr, a black man.

They made their way to the car and found that it just wouldn’t go. You see, Richard Spikes, a black man invented the automatic gear shift and Joseph Gammel invented the supercharge system for internal combustion engines. They also noticed that the few cars that were moving were running into each other and having wrecks because there were no traffic lights. You see, Garret A. Morgan, a black man invented the traffic light.

Well it was getting late, so they walked to the market, got their groceries and returned home. Just when they were about to put away the milk, eggs and butter, they noticed the refrigerator was gone. You see, John Standard, a black man invented the refrigerator. So they just left the food on the counter. By this Time, Theo noticed he was getting mighty cold. Mom went to turn on the heat and what do you know. Alice Parker, a black female, invented the heating furnace. Even in summer time, they would have been out of lick because Fredrick Jones, a black man invented the air conditioner.

It was almost time for Theo’s father to arrive home. He usually takes the bus. But there was no bus because its precursor was the electric trolley invented by another black man, Elbert R. Roberson. He usually takes the elevator from his office on the 20th floor, but there was no elevator use Alexander Miles, a black man, invented the elevator. He also usually dropped the mail at a nearby by mailbox, but it was no longer there because Philip Downing, a black man, invented the letter drop mailbox and William Barry invented the postmarking and canceling machine.

Theo and his mother sat at the kitchen table with heads in their hands. When their father arrived, he asked, “Why are you sitting in the dark?”  Why? Because Lewis Howard Latimer, a black man, invented the filament within the light bulb.

Theo quickly learnt what it would be like if there were no black people in the world. Not to mention of if he were either sick or needed blood, Charles Drew, a black scientist, found a way to preserve and store blood, which led to his starting the world’s first blood bank. And what if a family member had to have a heart surgery. This will not be possible without doctor Daniel Hale Williams, a black doctor, who performed the first open heart surgery.

So, if you ever wonder, like Theo, Where would we be without black people? Well it is pretty plain to see. We would still be in the DARK!!

Thanks for all the compliments. So as a black man we should always be proud of ourselves, our colour, our culture and everything. It's all a gift.
