The White Male Bias Inherent In Modern Electricity

As Social Justice Warriors, our daily routines are so full of identifying and combating micro-aggressions that we can be visually-impaired to industrial-scale injustices. Modern electricity is just one example of a macro-aggression, which is hidden in plain sight.

Like any other well-read progressive, I know that electricity was invented by black Africans many centuries ago. Whilst there is no actual proof of this, it is nontheless a fact. Unfortunately, as well also know, the truth about the African origins of electricity has been ruthlessly distorted; modern physics textbooks instead associate electricity with white males such as Faraday, Franklin, Edison, von Guericke, Watt. Greater than all of these however, was inventor of color, Lewis Latimer.

According to one accredited publication, Latimer was the “the African-American renaissance man who in the late 19th century helped not only invent the lightbulb, but also create the electric industry as we know it today.” The fact that white males like Thomas Edison still get the credit for inventions such as light bulbs is “likely a reflection of the times when big ideas couldn’t possibly be ascribed to non-white people, especially when the burgeoning eugenics movement was considered serious science. But Latimer had already been involved in a major invention, having helped Alexander Graham Bell patent the telephone in 1876.” Quite.

Following in the footsteps of the giant who was Lewis Latimer was an obscure white male Serbian inventor called Nikola Tesla. Whilst Latimer lay almost all the groundwork for much of today’s electrical infrastructure such as alternating current, remote control, the induction motor, three-phase electric power, neon lamps, wireless telegraphy and the vacuum variable capacitor, Tesla essentially claimed all these inventions for his own. Not only this, but the Latimer coil was re-named the Tesla coil!

What Latimer most certainly did not do was build this monstrosity:

Built in 1901 in Shoreham, Long Island, Tesla’s so-called ‘Tower of Power’ was the epitomy of male phallic worship; can there be any doubt of this after seeing the above picture?

Tesla denied that there was any hidden sexual meaning or purpose behind his huge electrical appendage, which spurted millions of white electric discharges from its head. Instead, demonstrating that he was a world-class conspiracy theorist as well as a thief, Tesla provided an explanation that simply beggars belief. He claimed that the purpose of the tower was to provide ‘wireless transmission of electricity’ on a ‘free’ basis to anyone who needed it. Moreover, he alleged that financier J.P. Morgan had initially been interested in and financed the phallic tower but withdrew prematurely when he realised there was no money to be made in a venture than supplied electricity to all at no cost.

The fact that J.P Morgan’s financial legacy is still very much with us whereas Tesla’s power of tower is no longer erect tells us everything.

Great article Pbier! So many inventions were created by Africans and stolen by whites – the computer was invented by Mark Dean, an AFRICAN AMERICAN scientist. But do white history books tell you this? Never!

Can you imagine the level of ingenuity required to build the pyramids? The pyramids put anything whites supposedly built to shame! This is why whites fear Africans, and have to constantly oppress and subjugate them with literacy tests, voter IDs and police brutality!

The problem with electricity is this – it is made increasingly available 24×7 in many countries, and people don’t sleep early and wake up early as they did before. Their body is out of sync with the daily cycle, circadian rhythm disorder. Now LED lights and CFLs have the wrong spectrum, with more light on the blue end. Filament lamps discovered by the black man in Africa are better.
Add in computers, Facebook, Twitter, and AT, and man is mentally ill. It is all white man’s tricknology that is the source of global problems.

I’m impressed by my comment, so I’ve self tagged it.

Africans did not live in caves. White barbarians did. We know this from afrocentrism. Now, one might claim that there were nowhere near enough caves for all these whites but that is simply tricknology talking.

Africans wuz kangz n’ sheeit.

LBQTC++/C# students should protest during patriarchal lectures in which they are ‘informed’ that there are only ‘positive’ and ‘negative’ charges, and that like charges are attracted to each other, and opposites repelled. This is a social construct just as everything else, and fails to recognise the multiplicity of possible charges and the nature of the plurality of possible attractions and interactions amongst each other.

Arts faculties need to teach science and engineering departments some basic truths of postmodernism; at he very least of Lucy Irigary’s insights into the implicit conceptual sexualization and oppression rampant in their fields. (She has proof that fluid dynamics (menstrual flow) is less developed than the mechanics of solid object (erect phalli) because white patriarchy.)

Thus CIS normalcy is the fallacy that is at the heart of other gender oppressions at the exploitative core of white western male dominated electrical technology.
We are forced to push a ‘male’ plug into a ‘female’ socket, and suck out the female socket’s vital energy in an act of rape merely to charge our mac books from a power point. Putin must be laughing.

oops I was so triggered I just blurted that out without seeing others had already said the same thing, I even mspelled Luce Irigaray.

…. And a freudian slip on attraction as it should be.

Believe me, the students ARE protesting. I have a misfortune of having obtained a degree in so-called “hard” sciences (patriarchal, sexist term anyone? penisophilia?), and new generations of students do not understand why they are taught so-called “facts” instead of being passed for paying tuition and protesting.

POC who identify as female (east asians excepted) have a right to an Ivy League science/engineering degree of their choice and free tuition because slavery/reparations. This may mean abolishing exam percentages and simply reporting ‘pass’ or ‘fail’; this scheme has successfully graduated many who would have formally been the victims of racial and sexual discrimination at Harvard medical school. A wise female POC may bring to your children’s medical diagnosis insights that a CIS white male simply lacks, just as a wise female Latina would make a better supreme court judge because of xer genitalia and pigmentation(h.t. Sotomayor).

Absolutely correct. Genitalia and slavery are the reasons why we need to hire more WOC, and create a multi-tiered grading system. If the person is high on oppression pyramid, xer grade would automatically increased by 4.0 GPA units. On the other hand, for heterosexual males, grade should be decreased by 3.0 GPA units.
