    I was surprised to see he was not mentioned 15-17 years ago, in end of the century polls on the question of America's greatest scientist. I am now convinced it is racism, he is now #9 in recent polls; I learned about him in public schools, but obviously not enough. I welcome any responses though on the issue of racism, black individuals have greater insight than I:

    Why is it a surprise to you that science and technology has made monumental strides, compared to 15-17 years ago?

    I reference history. Carver was, and is, the greatest. Again, why? Other historical figures do not get swept away in this young nation, other nations have honored Carver more than the US has. Does that not bother you?

    Not at all. It bothers me more that Eli Whitney never gets recognition for inventing the cotton gin. That did after all, free up many slaves for more enjoyable activities such as making merry songs, drinking, dancing, and robbing convenience stores.

    You sully Carver's name; he rose from poverty. Yes, historians like DuBois, educators like Booker T. Washington, and many, many others also were great. Greatest scientist remains Carver in my eyes.

    You can't have a decent conversation here because these racists will troll. Even worse some of the moderators will troll with them.

    Thanks anyway. Carver was the greatest of all, stautes of him dot nations in other parts of the world. After his death, his work saved hundreds of thousands in India, SE Asia....a genius no one cannot expect to suddenly be, he must be remembered. (As should Julian, Amos, et. al.)

    They would rather erect statues of Stonewall Jackson here than recognize the greatness of anyone who is not white. But you are the racist or even mentioning that a black man actually accomplished something. This is the lunacy we are dealing with here.
