Are you a race traitor?

Neo-Nazis, Klansmen, and all the other flavors of racists often use the phrase, "race traitor" in demeaning those that they feel are betraying their white race by collaborating, supporting, or otherwise mingling with black people (as well as other races.) Well, I also assume that since they are big on principles, they certainly would never want to be labeled hypocrites. Nor would they want to "betray" their own race by supporting or in any way endorsing black people.

With that being said, all racists, uh...I mean racial purists, have some new rules to go by so that they stay true to their race.

You can no longer have any form of heart surgery.
In 1893, the first successful American open-heart surgery was performed by a Black surgeon, Dr. Daniel Hale Williams

You can no longer use the phrase "the real McCoy"
because it was coined after the inventor Elijah McCoy known for inventing ingenious devices to lubricate heavy machinery automatically. (Guess that means you may not use any machinery or anything made by machinery.)

You are no longer allowed to use light bulbs or lamps.
Lewis Howard Latimer is best remembered for his key contributions to the incandescent light bulb. In 1881 Latimer patented an electric lamp with an inexpensive carbon filament and a threaded wooden socket. He later joined Thomas Alva Edison's team of inventors and wrote the first known book on electric lighting.

You can no longer wear shoes unless you make them from scratch.
Jan E. Matzeliger is most famous for designing and creating a machine that stretched leather shoe uppers around a foot-shaped model, or last. Before Matzeliger introduced his machine, highly skilled artisans lasted a maximum of 50 pairs of shoes a day. Matzeliger's automatic shoe lasting machine revolutionized the shoe making industry, producing as many as 700 pairs of shoes in a single day.

You can no longer ride or utilize any goods transported by trains.
American railroad engineer and inventor Granville T. Woods patented a remarkable 35 electrical and mechanical devices during his prolific career. Woods received his first patent in 1884 for a steam boiler furnace. His many later patents included a system that enabled telegraph lines to carry voice signals; an induction telegraph for sending messages to and from moving trains; and electromechanical and electromagnetic railway brakes.That means FOOD transported by train too.

You are no longer allowed to stop or go at traffic lights. If you are trapped in a fire, a fireman will no longer be allowed to come and rescue you. In the event of a terrorist gas attack, you have no option but to die.
Garrett A. Morgan patented the first traffic signal in 1923. Morgan made national news when he used another of his inventions--the gas mask--to rescue several men trapped in a tunnel beneath Lake Erie. Morgan's mask was soon adopted by firemen around the world, and was also refined for use by the United States Army during World War I.

Related to your possible "fire crisis" you cannot use a fire extinguisher or fire escape ladder.
fire escape ladder: J. W. Winters; May 7, 1878
fire extinguisher: T. Marshall; October 26, 1872

You cannot eat or otherwise use any food transported in a refrigerated vehicle.
Frederick McKinley Jones is most remembered for introducing the first practical refrigeration system for trucks and railroad cars, a system that completely changed the food transport industry. Jones was responsible for a phenomenal 60 patents during his lifetime, 40 for refrigeration equipment alone. Again...that includes primarily, food.

If you need a blood transfusion, you have to die instead. That goes for your family too, your wives and children. (Unless you want to call them race traitors)
American surgeon Charles Richard Drew conducted pioneering work in blood storage and transfusion techniques. Drew showed that blood plasma lasts longer than whole blood, a medical breakthrough that enabled the creation of the modern blood bank. In 1939, Dr. Drew used his new understanding of blood storage and transfusion to help establish the first blood banks to serve the Allied Forces in Europe during World War II. He went on to become the first director of the American Red Cross Blood Bank.

You cannot eat peanut butter.
George Washington Carver (1860–1943) invented peanut butter and 400 plant products

You cannot use a toilet.
Standard Toilet by T. Elkins

If you need a pacemaker, you will have to die instead. You cannot use IBM computers either.
Otis Boykin (1920–1982) invented the electronic control devices for guided missiles, IBM computers, and the pacemaker.

If you have certain kinds of eye problems that will lead to blindness. Get a seeing eye dog and hang it up.
Dr. Patricia. E. Bath (1949–) invented a method of eye surgery that has helped many blind people to see.

You cannot eat anything that was planted with in any way shape or form unless it was planted by hand.
Henry Blair was the only inventor to be identified in the Patent Office records as "a colored man." Blair was born in Montgomery County, Maryland around 1807. He received a patent on October 14, 1834 for a seed planter and a patent in 1836 for a cotton planter. (There's that food thing again)

You cannot have your clothes dry cleaned.
Thomas Jennings received a patent in 1821 for a dry cleaning process.

You cannot listen to Ipods, listen to CDs or utilize anything else that requires something being plugged into a computer.
Mark Dean and his co-inventor Dennis Moeller created a microcomputer system with bus control means for peripheral processing devices. Their invention paved the way for the growth in the information technology industry. We can plug into our computers peripherals like disk drives, video gear, speakers, and scanners.

You cannot eat ice cream unless it was made prior to 1832
Augustus Jackson was a candy confectioner from Philadelphia who created several ice cream recipes and invented an improved method of manufacturing ice cream around 1832.

And if you should find some vintage pre-1832 ice cream you cannot use an ice cream scooper to get it out.
* ice cream scooper: A. L. Cralle; February 2, 1897

You may not use air conditioners.
* air conditioning unit: Frederick M. Jones; July 12, 1949

You cannot use doors with knobs.
* door knob: O. Dorsey; December 10, 1878

You cannot use fountain pens.
* fountain pen: W. B. Purvis; January 7, 1890

You cannot play golf.
* golf tee: T. Grant; December 12, 1899

You cannot brush your hair. (Doesn't apply to skinheads).
* hair brush: Lydia O. Newman; November 15,18--

You cannot play guitar
Robert F. Flemming, Jr. March 3, 1886

You may not drive cars other than stick shifts. (Wait, those things have spark plugs don't they?)
* automatic gear shift: Richard Spikes; February 28, 1932

You can't use lawn mowers, use a lock to secure anything, use a mail box, lunch box, mop the floor, use any motor that requires a spark plug, allow a doctor to use a stethoscope to examine your heart, cook with a stove, sharpen your pencil with a sharpener, use a cooling or heating device with a thermostat, use a keyboard which was developed from the typewriter (one of "their" inventions), and you also have to take tricycles away from your kids.

Get the picture?
No you don't. Because you can't look at pictures either.
Clatonia Joaquin Dorticus of Newton, New Jersey invented an improved photographic print and negative wash machine...also invented an improved machine for embossing photographs (see patent drawing left). His machine was designed to both/either mount or emboss a photographic print. Embossing is a method or raising parts of a photograph for a relief or 3D look.

Here's the bottom line you uneducated morons. If you follow your own rules about being a “race traitor” there isn't a whole lot you can do. Looking over the list, (and believe me its only a fraction of the things invented by black people,) there's not much you can eat. You better not get in a fire, and you sure had better not require any heart surgery.

If you follow your own philosophy...racism will take care of itself shortly.

Because you'll all die out. So be true to your race!
