    Seriously, WTF? Biden faces criticism after saying black man invented light bulb

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is doing damage control after stating incorrectly that a black man, rather than Thomas Edison, invented the light bulb. 

    H/T: Just The News

    The presidential hopeful make the claim while speaking Thursday with local community leaders after meeting with the family of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old black American who was late last month.

    Biden's eyebrow-raising claim came as he accused schools of teaching inaccurate history.

    “People fear that which is different. We've got to, for example, why in God's name don't we teach history in history classes? A Black man invented the light bulb, not a White guy named Edison,” Biden said. “There's so much — did anybody know before what recently happened that Black Wall Street in Oklahoma was burned to the ground. Anybody know these things? Because we don't teach them. We've got to give people facts.”
