Joe Biden: Black Guy Invented Light Bulb, Not Thomas Edison

As they used to joke in the Soviet Union, “The future is certain; it’s the past that keeps changing.” According to Afrocentrist ideology, blacks built the pyramids. Now that this ideology is becoming established as our new national creed, we can look forward to further historical revisions. To credit whites for their inventions would be racist, so we will pretend that blacks were the inventors. While rewarding rioters by racially pandering in Kenosha, Joe Biden demonstrates:

“Why in God’s name don’t we teach history in history classes?” Biden said during the event at Grace Lutheran Church. “A black man invented the light bulb. not a white guy named Edison. Okay? There’s so much. Did anybody know?”

The lie could be based on a distortion of the truth:

While historians argue over whether Thomas Edison can claim sole credit for creating the incandescent light bulb, his invention took shape in 1879, he patented it in 1880 — before Lewis Latimer, a black man, came up with an improvement on the design.

Latimer, an accomplished scholar and inventor, designed a carbon light bulb filament in 1881 and patented it in 1882. According to, his iterative contribution to the technology greatly improved each bulb’s durability.

Congratulations to both Edison and Latimer on their contributions to civilization. We need to tip our hats to these people while we can, before the past has been so politicized into fiction that we have no idea who deserves credit for anything.

Caucasian accomplishments that cannot be converted into crimes (i.e., Columbus spreading Western Civilization to the New World, the Founding Fathers creating America) will be reassigned to more politically correct personages. That will make it easier to erase inconvenient historical figures.

On a tip from ABC of the ANC.
