Black History Month Myth of the Day. The Cell Phone.

Dr. Henry T. Sampson (pictured at right) and Dr. George H. Miley, are two engineering professors teaching in Illinois. Though it looks like Sampson has since retired from teaching and now writes books on the history of blacks in theater and movies. In 1971 they jointly obtained a patent for their own version of a “Gamma Electric Cell” they designed to convert gamma rays into electrical output.

Sampson was also employed once at a Naval Weapons station in California where he worked on developing binders for rocket propellant. It is alleged that he also holds patents that grew out of this research.

Henry T. Sampson, a Mulatto, may be among the most successful engineers to have African ancestry. However, that is not what the Afro-mythologists are calling him. Last year CofCC.org actually received an e-mail from a parent whose child was asked to write a report on Sampson, because “he invented the cell phone.”

Afro-Mythologists saw the words “gamma,” and “cell” and said “hot dog” a black man invented the cell phone. Now the media and the public schools are propagandizing this false and easily disprovable hoax.

It is also noteworthy, that absolutely none of the Afro-mythologists mention that the patent in question was jointly obtained with a white scientist! Nor do they mention that the first patent for a device that converts gamma rays into electricity was obtained by white scientist Bernard Gross in 1964.

What does converting gamma rays into electricity have to do with cell phones? Absolutely nothing!

Who really invented the cell phone? Martin Cooper, pictured at right is considered to be the father of the cell phone.

In 1973 Cooper took out a patent for his new invention the “radio telephone system.” When Cooper first walked onto the streets of New York with it, people were stunned. Cooper remains a leader in communications innovation to this day.

So what have we learned?

Henry T. Sampson was not the first to convert gamma rays to electricity. A white scientist did it first seven years earlier.

Sampson only co-created a similar device with a white scientist.

That device had nothing to do with cellular phone technology and has no bearing whatsoever on the history of the cell phone.

    Whats next for these Black History Month will their next lie be that a black man invented the AIRPLANE or CAR or the INTERNET?

    • Earl P. Holt III

      They already claim the car and the helicopter. (EVERYONE knows that Al Gore invented the internet…)

    • JoeBideyourtime

      Have you ever heard of an airplane being unearthed in Africa? If civilization started there it took a fast leap completely away.

  • Rosie Sparks

    And we learned that Sampson was a mulatto in keeping with the tradition of all “black” inventors.

    • Earl P. Holt III

      Like William Shockley proved, “The lighter, the brighter…”

    In “Guns, Germs and Steel,” Jared Diamond argues that everything is our culture due to geographic factors, such as the availability of domesticable plants and animals, which are needed to feed civilization. Indeed, hunting and gathering lasted until relatively recent times in Scandinavia, since wheat grew poorly there. And, Greece is the foundation of western civilization, since wheat arrived in that part of Europe first. Still, the book does a terrible job of explaining China, where agriculture began much earlier, and which had a lot of coal, that never inspired them to industrialize. Also, the Indians had 60 percent of crops, such as corn, beans, squash, potatoes, etc. The book provides an interesting explanation of Europe, but fails to explain the rest of the world. Indeed, 3 million SNPs separate the races, which is 130 SNPs per 23,000 genes in the genome, and even just one SNP can completely change a gene. And, look at what happened to all the whites who went to Latin America, and interbred with blacks and Indians in wide numbers. It amazes me that our leaders support our displacement by Third World mestizos, given this evidence.

    • truthbetold

      If Diamond was correct, then how come Whites took over the very same geographic factors from the Indians and created modern industry? Why couldn’t the Indians do it? Also, how come the Swiss, for example, bereft of resources make wealth out of little bits materials into fabulous watches, etc. The crucial factor is the people, and the geographic factor is only a contributing factor.

      • Earl P. Holt III

        Another example is the Continent of Africa — which contains many of the rarest and most valuable elements and minerals in the world — which would never have seen the light of day, were it not for the white man’s technology and managerial skills…

    Well a black man did invent a Prosthetic Tail for a dolphine. I know this to be true b/c of the Hollywood movie “Dolphine Tail” which stars Morgan Freeman as the inventor.

    Wait a second, I just googled it and it turned out the prosthetic tail was invented by two whites. I guess we were lied to, again

  • Earl P. Holt III

    They didn’t invent the cell phone, but they sure employ their free Obama-phones to engage in endless criminal activities…

    • SiliconNooB

      AHA, Obama-phones were invented by the blacks! Checkmate anglosphere!! :P

      • disqus_NF6LFkuVhY

        Actually the free cell phones started during the regime of BIll Clinton. It was a modification of a landline, only program that was started during Ronald Reagan’s term. Surprise, Scary Barry Obama took credit for somebody else’s program. They are not, “Obama phones”. They are, “white presidents phones”!

  • MartelsGhost

    Sad and pathetic.

    I’m waiting for the story to come out of some state where a group of advanced placement students complete their science fair projects, then set up the projects for display and judging only to be escorted out after completing their work. As the AP students leave they watch as groups of underachieving future thugs walk around and choose which project they want to steal in order to claim credit for having done the work. All while under the watchful approving stares of the administration.

    • Earl P. Holt III

      When I was on the St. Louis School Board, an Asian student from the high-achieving Magnet School in the St. Louis Public Schools actually WON the St. Louis Science Fair. This is a BIG DEAL in St. Louis, involves competition from participating school systems throughout the metro area, and probably had a scholarship attached, although it’s been 25 years so I can’t remember the amount. The kid wrote some kind of new software, but was not there to accept his award because he was already taking courses at Stanford !!!

      When his parents stepped forward to accept his award for him, the thing I’ll NEVER forget was the lack of enthusiasm among the n*ggers on the Board: They feigned the least amount of enthusiasm possible, and their clapping was pro forma and silent.

      Here was the first example of genuine accomplishment I had seen in the SLPSs, and the n*ggers were disinterested because it was an Asian student rather than some black imbecile who had just learned to tie his shoes, or the equivalent. Blacks are the most racist people in the history of the world, and hate the Asians because the Asians “put the lie” to all the black excuses and laments about racism and the lack of opportunity. The parents of this kid were a refugees from Viet Nam and “Boat People,” who came here with NOTHING.

      The truth is, the only thing holding back most blacks are their incredibly low I.Q.s, their laziness, and the fact that they spend valuable time complaining about how bad they have it, while we have transferred OVER $20 TRILLION to them, most of which has gone for illegal drugs, alcohol, prostitutes, cigarettes and gambling.

      • MartelsGhost

        Well said.

        The only thing holding back blacks………………..is that they’re black.

        They hate everyone and everything including themselves.

        • Earl P. Holt III

          You sound like Edward Longshanks in “Braveheart”: “The problem with Scotland is that it has too many Scots…”

          • MartelsGhost

            An astute observation.

            The only difference being that you will NEVER hear me suggesting that the only solution is that we “breed them out.”

            Genetically speaking, I am more related to Edward I than I am to Wallace.

            I appreciate the historical importance of Wallaces’ stand against the crown and I will forever feel connected to Wallace as I had an ancestor that was once hung, drawn and quartered by an English King.

          • Oingo Boingo

            That Brit/Scot thing is STILL going on; The Scots want OUT of The UK, and probably The EU.
            btw, tribal warfare, regardless of a tribe’s technological sophistication, is often an attempted extermination.
            Whites have been holding back; those not lulled and distracted by Big Mass Media.
            American Blacks have NOT been holding back. They’re off on a national toot…that’s becoming very tiresome and increasingly intolerable. This crap is NOT going to continue much longer.
            If White, aware and not angry; you haven’t been paying attention.
            “When the Saxon began to hate” – R. Kipling
            When the tide turns, our domestic African / African Wannabee Blacks are in for a big surprise.
            Dey gawn run to dee Rock fah rescue, but dere be no rock, mon.
            Da EVIL will be DEMOLISHED !
            No more Free Range Beasts of The Field.

  • truthbetold

    Maybe it should be called “Mulatto Mythtory Month” instead?

    • Earl P. Holt III

      Then, only the queers can pronounce it correctly…

      • Marv Ack

        That’th waythitht!

    • Oingo Boingo

      Brilliant.
      “Mythtory”
      Love it.

  • IvanRider

    Are they really so ashamed of George Washington Carver due to his conservative beliefs and mockeries of liberalism, that they have to erase this one legitimate achievement from history and replace it with myths? Blacks need to confront the Cultural Marxists big time. The history of both Black and White is being stolen and rewritten wholesale and shamelessly!

  • Danny Welles

    Niggers have no culture so they have to lie & steal other peoples’ cultures.

  • Lucian Brown III

    the tone of this story is disgusting

  • WhiteManTellsTheTruth

    Henry T. Sampson for inventing the gamma-electric cell, making cell phones possible.

    Henry T. Sampson Jr. was the first African/Black American to achieve an MS degree in Nuclear Engineering where persons who hold such a degree are commonly referred to as Nuclear Physicist.

    On July 6, 1971 Sampson’s invention was patented and he received a patent number which is: US 3591850; Sampson’s patent is maintained under the United States Patent and Trademark Office. See citations below for further inquiry.NOW MIND YOU THESE PPL ARE TALKING ABOUT COOPER AND HIS PATENT IN 1973…Go figure oh and the source is from United States Patent 3,591,860 Patent Date of file July 6, 1971 (http://patft(dot)uspto(dot)gov(slash)netahtml(slash)PTO(slash)srchnumtm
