Black History Month Myth of the Day. The air conditioner.

Photo Right: Frederick Jones was a mulatto who co-founded Thermo King with Joseph Numero (a white man). He took out 22 patents primarily related to refrigeration. This puts him among the most accomplished engineers to have Negro ancestry. However, he did not invent the air conditioner.
According to Afro-mythologists, Frederick McKinley Jones invented the air conditioner along with dozens of other things. The claim stems from a patent for Jones’ own version of an air conditioner that was designed to be mounted on trucks. He filed his patent in 1949.
In 1902, Dr. Willis Carrier (a white man) built the first air conditioner to combat humidity inside a printing company. In 1906 Carrier took out the first patent for a modern air conditioner that both cooled and dehumidified.
Around 1915 Carrier Engineering Corporation began manufacturing air conditioners for the public.
Frederick McKinley Jones took out a patent for an air conditioner that would be mounted on top of a truck in 1949. At that time air conditioners had already been around for decades. However he titled his patent “air conditioning unit.” So the Afro-mythologists have used the title of his patent to say he “invented the air conditioner.”
Afro-mythologists claim that Frederick McKinley Jones made over 100 different inventions in the field of air conditioners, combustion engines, and movie projectors. The US patent office website shows 22 patents on file for him. No patents exist relating to movie projectors or the film industry. All of the patents are connected to the Thermo King Company in Minnesota. Most are related to refrigeration.
Thermo King sold commercial products which Jones helped design. This would make him a giant among “African American Scientists.” However, like most other “African American Scientists,” photos show that he was probably at least 50% white.
While Frederick Jones appears to have been a very successful and accomplished scientist, he did not invent the air conditioner. His patents are for his own versions of various elements of existing technologies.

  2. How funny that when someone even PARTIALLY black, such as Jones does something negative white people are quick to blame it on their blackness. But when the same person does something positive, such as take part in the scientific or engineering field, white people want to take credit for them being part white as if that is their only redeeming quality.

  3. Let me just say this to Mist:
    You are a racist creton who's so stuck on yourself with your head so far up your rectum that you don't know wether you're coming or going. You enjoy belittling others and take delight in causing other's pain. You're shallow and mean-spirited and you need to humble yourself.

    1. Anonymous: I mean what would you expect from a "Devil"
      The most astute trick the immigrants of this planet ever did effectively is convinced the world that he doesn't exist .. Wickedness comes naturally for them , as if it is effortless as breathing ! The Devil is not a being beneath the earth surrounded by hell flames in a red suit with horns ... It's the white man who emerged from the Caucus Mountains reeking havoc on every race of ppl they encountered

  7. It was a black man who came up with the first prototype of what would later become the modern air conditioner. Lewis Latimer’s invention consisted of a fan and cooling coils for reducing temperature and purifying the air. Patent date: January 12, 1886 Patent number: 334.078
