Did you know Peanut Butter was invented by a black man?

I wonder if my grandparents experienced something similar to this?...

Thankfully that way of thinking is more laughed at as opposed to being passed down from generation to generation.

If I had a daughter there would be soo many things I would worry about regarding her boyfriend/husband before I would worry about the color of his skin whether it was brown, pink or purple...

...well maybe purple would concern me a bit.

Rev, at least 2-dirty jokes (both I could've used to flirt with you) immediately came to mind. But I'm trying to behave today (just today).

But this does make me wonder who invented jelly (K-Y or the other kinds).

Billy: You know, I didn't realize my daddy was a different color then my momma until I was like 6 years old. One day I looked up to see my parents standing in the kitchen and I said to myself, "Huh...weird, my dad's a different color then mom... That's so cool!"

Now I'm jealous. I wish my daddy was a different color than mommy. Instead my ethnicity is a mixture of bad white European and hated white European.

Yes I did--George Washington Carver was his name.

The first jar of Penut Butter was found in South Central, jacked up on cinder blocks.

Oh, I can't. They're way too offensive and racy.

I have yet to find out what color my daddy is. 10 tests and 3 visits to Maury and we still don't know!

Actually Crash, I watched a doc on GWC just last week.

(yeah so!)

Although GWC invented many many uses for the peanut and saved the southern farmers/ex-slaves from being wiped out by cotton-eating locust, he is mistakenly given credit for inventing peanut butter.

Some unknown doctor invented peanut butter in 1890.

I thought George Washington Carver invented the pimpstick. I guess you learn something everyday.

They used to make us go on field trips when I was in school EVERY YEAR to the George Washington Carver park in Diamond Missouri ... I can almost repeat the whole speech that his talking head gives right before you go on the nature walk!

I didn't know that either Hushie. Blogging can be very educational.

Did you know that someone with a chocolate bar and a person with a jar of peanut butter ran into each other and that's how Reeses Peanut Butter Cups came about?

Thank God for that moment in time right?

My daughter's not even born yet, and I'm already worrying about the kind of guy she'll bring home one day.

My husband and I already agree, though- skin color is not the concern, character is. There are plenty of shitty people of all races, and I wouldn't want her dating a trailer trash white boy any more than a gangbanger.

Frankly since I'm a guy and I know what they think, I don't want any of my future daughters dating anyone. At least until I die.
