    Usually any time I get into a debate with a white person and they see I am getting the better of the debate they will usually pull out two things

    1) White People’s Invention And Creations 2) Race and IQ

    First off I always find funny that when I point out the bad that whites have done, whites are quick to point out how other people have done it too. Like with the slave trade they quickly point out that Africans and Arabs did it too.

    HISTORICAL CONTEXT SUDDENLY MATTERS

    But when it comes to the good things, like inventions, white people act like they are the only ones then

    HISTORICAL CONTEXT SUDDENLY DOES NOT MATTER

    Indeed white people’s inventions And creations and Race and IQ are usually the two main arguments that whites will use to prove how they are the most progressive and advanced of all the races.

    White people will talk about there inventions for 3 reason

    1. To show that whites are the best – regardless of how much racism they have have practised.
    2. To change the subject. It is a great way to derail any argument about white racism: blacks hate this argument and will jump on it, quickly forgetting whatever they were talking about before. (I have done this myself)
    3. To point out that x would not even be possible without white people. For example, when arguing about how racist a programme is, whites will sometimes try to end the argument by pointing out that it was whites who invented the TV in the first place.

    What is wrong with this argument:

    If inventions “prove” one part of mankind is better than all the rest, then the Chinese and black people have a way better claim than whites. White people would be nowhere without four Chinese inventions : Gunpowder, The Compass, Paper and the Printing press. Whites rise to world power was built on these.

    In fact, before 1500 there were very few white inventions but plenty of Chinese and Egyptian ones.The Egyptians invented civilization itself along with stuff like writing, calendars, irrigation, mining, first to study Math, first to build modern cities and so on.

    However I will not deny whites there inventions and a lot of the inventions of the past few hundred years were made by white people. But that is only because they have been on top in that time. If it’s because white ppl are born with more intelligent, then white people would have been on top all throughout history – not just a fifth of it. British and American power – is fresh in our thoughts, but it’s just the latest chapter in the book of history.

    Onto Race and IQ next.

    There is no such thing as White people or black people or blue people or whatever inventions. There are inventions made by either one person or a small group of people that happen to be a certain ethnicity of nationality. This is their achievement and not anybody else's. Just because someone has achieved success and you happen to have something in common with them that does not give you the right to freeload on their accomplishments!

    Oh and yeh racism does work both ways! So fill that chip on your shoulder OP! This isn't the 1920s anymore, nobody gives a damn about your skin colour.

    If you are going to neg rep me a least provide an explanation!

    White and black neither are stuggling to find which is the better race
    We are all the same race
    Humans, homosapiens
    Why is there still such segregation for *insert deity's* sake
    Inventions are inventions either way
    Certain people in history have done bad things and been of one colour
    But people have also done good things whilst being the same colour
    We are all human
    Colour has nothing to do with invention
    Much the same as eye colour has nothing to do with it
    It is just random genetics which make up for nothing

    I like how your examples of 'un-white' inventions are credited to either the Chinese or Egyptians, neither of whom are actually black.

    Blacks are crap at inventing stuff. So what? That doesn't make them inherently bad people. Grow up and stop arguing about a non-existent issue.

    OP, the black panther movement has dwindled. In the UK racism against black has also dwindled. The world is starting to forget, I suggest you do the same.

    Egyptians wern't 'black', they were mostly semetic. Go and look at Egyptians nowadays, no were in Egypt are there black people. Most North African people aren't black.

    i have to agree with you it's unfair the way 'blacks' and other races are perceived as less intelligent it's completely unfounded and untrue. i hate how the white race are so ignorant of everyone elses background, like how they view all indians and pakistani people to be the same and call them 'muslims' (when that's a religion anyone can be a muslim) or they call me BLACK when i'm mixed race, my mum is white and my dad is half white half black caribbean; therefore i'm only a quarter black. i've NEVER heard a black person call me black, or an asian, latino or anyone from a different race other than white.

    the only reason they have so many 'inventions' from the last few hundred years is because they were the 'ruling race' at the time and because of the suppression of black people. but look at how far asians have bought us with their technology, it's obviously going to be their turn pretty soon.
