No one person "invented" the internet. It was a gradual progression and synthesization of many technologies over a few decades. You can't say that not one black or colored person ever worked on any of these technologies. Never wrote one piece of code anywhere. Never discussed one idea at any meeting. Never managed even a small group of programmers or technicians. Never assembled one computer, or soldered one network card, or operated a machine to cut one silicon wafer at any electronics or computer company anywhere in the world. Never put up a single web site. THAT is true racism.
Anyone who has ever connected a computer to the net, or put up a web site has contributed to the growth and development of the internet. Even Ital IMan I, even if you personally don't like his particular corner of the place.
Over here there are not many people of African descent, although I do remember a very well-dressed, very tall, very black guy with 2 foot long dreads working somewhere at IBM while I was there...could have been the Aussie head of internet development for all I know... But I have personally seen many Indians and Asians working in the IT industry, from owning their own companies to working as managers, programmers, technicians, and designers. I doubt either of these groups would really take to being called "di white man"...
