    Guitars first came into use, and were known by that name, around 1200 AD.

    I'm happy to be an American.

    For all you folks know, I'm black. Or yellow, or brown.

    But the truth is I'm purple and hail from a galaxy far away. I've come here to observe, and I'm not pleased with what I see. Division and derision at every turn. Position and juxtaposition are the staus quo of your species. Pointing to differences instead of searching for commonality. Unity. Purpose. Direction. Solution.

    Because all you of earth are idiots.

    You can't teach Republicans.

    For one, they cheered when Rick Santorum said none of them are smart.

    They believe education is for snobs are are voting for a man who said he will bring immigrants here who already have degrees and help them start businesses. I'm guessing because he agrees with Santorum.

    When Mitt was talking about the 47%, he wasn't talking about blacks, he was talking about the poor. A group heavily represented in Red States, otherwise known as Republicans. If Mitt gets elected, Republicans are going to hate him worse than they hate Bush. Why? Because he is going to screw over the Republican base. And I mean good.

    Should I care about the color of the inventor's skin?

    I have to say though, that living in Florida as I do I deeply appreciate Mr. Frederick Jones' contribution to my comfort.

    It will truly be a day to celebrate when no one thinks about the color of a man or woman's skin when they look back at his or her accomplishments.

    why did you just make a list of black inventors?

    why not break it down by each race?

    unless you're a racist.

    Coveting wealth, flaunting wealth, bemoaning one's poverty, and exerting superiority by any means are the most egregious faults of humanity. And it ain't all going away any time soon. Sad to say.

    In the meantime... be happy with what you got, don't bemoan the fact that folks got more than you, and don't act uppity towards nobody- for any reason.

    Live, let live, love, and let love. Because... in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.

    I covet wealth like everyone else, but I don't covet it in such a manner as to want to acquire it dishonestly.
