I thank the reader who gave me this link, writing:
MTV video promoting Black History Month: 'A World Without Black History' | MTV NewsSee how long you can tolerate the video below. I made it about one minute in, before “learning” that a black man invented open-heart surgery. Based on my long experience with “black history” hoaxes, I was sure that it was a lie, and sure enough it was.
You have got to watch this. Shows how far the Left's propaganda machine has gone in promoting black "invention" lies, exaggerations, and myths as "facts" to our youth. Beyond BS.
This video could just as well have been produced by the Nation of Islam.
Black supremacists and their white sycophants credit Dr. Daniel Hale Williams with inventing open heart surgery in 1893, but according to what I dug up, the candidates were:
Francisco Romero of Spain (1801)
Baron Dominique-Jean Larrey of France (1810)
Henry C. Dalton of St. Louis (September 6, 1891)
Ludwig Rehn of Germany (September 10, 1896)
Dr. Alfred Blalock, Vivien Thomas, and Dr. Helen Taussig, in Baltimore (1944)
Dr. John H. Gibbon Jr. in Philadelphia (May 6th, 1953)
One source I read (actually more than one) maintains that in the sense under which people understand “open heart surgery,” the procedure was not invented until the 1950s, and no blacks were involved in inventing the procedure.
Biography.com also denies that Dr. Daniel Hale Williams invented open heart surgery.
After that, while I was able to eventually finish watching the video, I did not waste any more time checking out its wild claims, some of which, e.g., that the wealth that slaves produced picking cotton in the South, financed Northern industry, were ridiculous on their face.
