Not really, sis, he was Afro-Bajan/Afro-Caribbean foremost. ;-D & he wasn't alone there, cause some Yank Whites were there too. ;-) Let's not forget that Vikings (Scandinavians) were 1st Europeans to 'discover' North Pole, but only after Asians (N.Americans). ;-D

he may have had those lineages but he was AFRO-BLAMERICAN. only one man was with him and he was so badly frost bitten he was unable to place the American flag at the top of the north pole.

he was the first one there.

Boy, you crackers are a damn trip! You search posts world-wide to find black forums that uplift blacks and try to either surpress them or tare them down! The man was a black man and he happened to be an american black man! Blacks all decended from africa so whether he was from the bahamas don't really make a damn difference! They were bought and sold over here just like all other blacks were you stupid azz hole! And you know for a fact that the damn cracker did not do it! He was no where around because his sorry azz got hurt! lol

& who says it wasn't one of those 4 Inuits (N.Americans) in the group to reach the N.Pole 1st?! Nop, he was & stays an Afro-Bajan dude foremost. ;-) Go ask any Afro-Bajan outside the ole Yankland if he/she feels that dude was an Afro-Bajan or rather an Afro-Yank, ya'll be surprised to hear what they have to say. ;-D N.Tesla wasn't a Yank White dude, but a SE.European, Croatian belongin' to the Croatian Serb minority, in this very order. It's the same tryin' to claim Peary as Greek or Italian. ;-) BTW, it's not even sure was it Cook or Peary, or the British dude before these two Yanks, to reach the N.Pole 1st. Many scholars in the world dun believe it was any of these dudes. It remains all unclear. ;-D Most however do recognize that it was the Scandinavian R.Amundsen to reach the N.Pole w/o a doubt. ;-)
