I was told that there was a show called
the MCCoys portrayed as a white family.
They should have portrayed the family
accurately. When are the whites going
to portray the real people exactly
how they look like?
It’s like a forgery the way they
sign their name on things not theirs.
THe Real MCCOys are BLACK.
Since whites wanted to be the MCCOYs
so Badly, they could have named
themselves “THE FICTITIOUS MCCOYS”
because they are NOT the REAL MCCOYS.
But Now for the REAL MCCOY, the Black Man named Elijah MCCOY:
March 28, 1882 Elijah MCCoy,
a Black Man invented the Lubricating cup. This tiny decise dripped small amounts of oil
onto moving engine parts and this saved
businesses time and money as well.
The lubricating cup was used
with the steam engines. A hollow tube
projected down from the bottom of the
cup into steam chamber. There was a valve
at the top end of the tube and a piston
at the bottom end of the tube.
Steam in the cylinder put the piston
into action and released the oil. A year
later, MCCoy improved on his original
model so that oil was only released
when there was no steam in the chamber.
Machinery buyers had to have the MCCoy lubrication systems when buying
new macines and would take nothing
less than the The Real MCCoy. His
automatic oiling devices got to be
so universal that heavy duty machines
were adequate without it, and the
expression became part of American
This is the source of my information:
Even though they don’t state
the race of Elijah McCoy in the article,
I’ll tell you this, the reference they
got it from is on their page and that
Created Equal: The Lives and Ideas of BLACK American Innovators
So that’s how you know that Elijah MCCOy is
a BLACK INVENTOR.
Plus this site says Black inventors and
Inventions and Elijah MCCOy is listed
