STUPID CROOK NEWS

JUST MY OPINION

insider.

MOTHER NATURE is raising the intensity of her NATURAL DISASTERS.  Or haven’t you noticed?  People are dieing by the thousands for lack of an early warning!  In our Midwest, SIRENS have saved many lives which would have been lost without them.  SIRENS ARE CHEAP.  SIRENS ARE RELIABLE.  Everyone can hear a SIREN.  Not so, with a telephone call.  Not everyone has a cell-phone.

*sigh*  ….but our ELECTED OFFICIALS had rather build basketball courts in PEOPLE’S PARK.  BRILLIANT!

10  .PEANUT BUTTER

.

.

When asked to name an African-American inventor, many people might think of George Washington Carver and peanut butter. The two have gone as well together as peanut butter and jelly in many history textbooks, but it’s actually a myth that Carver came up with peanut butter. Carver’s fascination with the peanut began when he was convincing Southern farmers to adopt his method of crop rotation. Instead of growing cotton every year, which was depleting the soil, Carver urged farmers to alternate cotton with legumes, which provided nutrients to the soil. The farmers obliged, but they had no way to sell all those peanuts. Carver went into the laboratory to come up with products that would make peanuts marketable. Carver is credited with devising more than 300 different uses for peanuts, including dye, soap, coffee and ink, and his innovations provided the South with an important crop — but peanut butter wasn’t one of his ideas.

Beyond George Washington Carver, though, many people aren’t familiar with black inventors. In this article, we’ll consider 10 more notable inventions credited to African-American innovators.
