When I ran across this story on another website, I knew it was a story that deserved to be told.

Reading the story brought back my early days of surfing the Internet and my first amateur attempts at building my own website. I registered my first domain name with Network Solutions and had no idea that a black man created the company NOR was I aware that this same black man created the revolutionary Dot-Com naming phenomenon.

So, without much ado (or unnecessary commentary by me), here’s an excerpt from the article about the brilliant and largely unknown Internet visionary, Emmit McHenry.

Please share this story with others, especially with young black people who are being programmed to believe that the most successful blacks MUST BE entertainers, athletes, and political puppets — when in reality, there are thousands of black creators, innovators, inventors, and visionaries who will never become black household names.

Faces of Black History – Emmit McHenry

(an excerpt)

image_thumb17Emmit McHenry, founder of Network Solutions

In 1979, Emmit McHenry and a few associates started an engineering company which they named Network Solutions. For 16 years, he and his partners toiled away and built a solid company. They could not get money from any financial institutions so they mortgaged their properties and maxed out their credit cards.

They were good engineers who were awarded with many contracts but the gem within Network Solutions was a contract with the National Science Foundation to create the U.S. Government’s and World first domain name addressing system for the Internet. This was back when the Internet was just a government project, and its commercial potential hadn’t been realized.

Emmit McHenry created a complex computer code whereby ordinary people can now surf the web or have e-mails without studying computer science. He created what we know today simply as .com.

On Dec. 31 1992, Network Solutions got the contract that would make the company a legacy. After the government reviewed several company proposals, The National Science Foundation Department selected Network Solution as manager of domain names registration service for the Internet.

The contract was for $1 million a year for five years. Network Solution had the sole authority to develop and issue Internet system for Web addresses. Network Solution developed .com, .net, .edu, and. gov. so people could communicate on the Internet.

At the time Network Solutions already was handling other sensitive engineering projects for the government. To keep up with the demands the company needed to hire more workers and buy new equipment, but the fixed $1 million a year contract proved to be a constrained because no matter how many names the company registered, it could not charge more.

Over the years demand for domain names increased and the company staff grew to 400 employees. Emmit applied to the government to charge directly for the domain names as the request for names continued to increase by the thousands. The government refused and continued to pay the company $1 million a year for as many requested domain names.

Emmit went to wealthy high profile Blacks and they all refused to invest in his company. He tried the financial institutions and Wall Street and they also said no. In the meantime the government kept insisting if he could not keep up with the volume they would break the contract.

In 1995 Emmit sold Network Solutions to Science Applications International Corp (or SAIC) for 4.8 million plus personal and business debt. In a few months the government gives SAIC the rights to charge $70.00 per year for each domain name plus royalty on any other created domain names, the same request Emmit made and was refused.

With millions of people and companies requesting domain names there was a bidding war to buy the new cash cow SAIC had just acquired. A Wall Street Company called VeriSign, Inc. was the winner. SAIC flipped the newly purchase 4.8 million company to VeriSign, Inc. for $21 Billion within a year.

Neely Fuller Jr. on Eugenics

An Introduction to Eugenics  (by me)

I thought it would be useful to give a brief introduction to Eugenics before listening to Mr. Fuller’s interview.

Eugenics Negro

Eugenics is a white supremacist strategy primarily used to justify the sterilization (and genocide) of nonwhites. This form of genocide is based on the belief that there are superior and inferior elements of society and the inferior elements are due to genetics NOT racist economic and educational policies.  Eugenics has roots in France, Germany, Great Britain and the United States.


In 1972, United States Senate committee testimony brought to light that at least 2,000 involuntary sterilizations had been performed on poor black women without their consent or knowledge.

An investigation revealed that the surgeries were all performed in the South, and were all performed on black welfare mothers with multiple children. Testimony revealed that many of these women were threatened with an end to their welfare benefits until they consented to sterilization.

The sterilization abuse (racism/white supremacy) caused many amongst the black community to suspect that “federal programs were underwriting eugenicists who wanted to impose their views about population quality on minorities and poor women.”


Eugenics supporters hold signs criticizing various “genetically inferior” groups. Wall Street, New York, c. 1915.

Native American women were also victims of sterilization abuse up into the 1970s. The organization WARN (Women of All Red Nations) publicized that Native American women were threatened that, if they had more children, they would be denied welfare benefits.

The Indian Health Service also repeatedly refused to deliver Native American babies until their mothers, during labor, consented to sterilization. Many Native American women unknowingly gave consent, since directions were not given in their native language.

One of the methods that was commonly suggested to get rid of “inferior” populations was euthanasia (the practice of intentionally ending a life).

A 1911 Carnegie Institute report mentioned euthanasia as one of its recommended “solutions” to the problem of cleansing society of unfit genetic attributes. The most commonly suggested method was to set up local gas chambers.


Eugenics is a policy that is STILL IN EFFECT IN THE 21ST CENTURY

Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in America. 78% of their clinics are in minority communities.
