  1. Captain Cook was one of the greatest navigators of history. He was from Yorkshire. Somebody here said Captain Coon the other day, which referred to a black Captain Kirk, but I thought of this Cook instead. I.e compare the great Cook to any Coon at any time in history.

    Has there ever been a black, yellow, or brown navigator to match any of these white men who sailed around the world hundreds of years ago?

    The Polynesians, who killed Cook, were good navigators but they never sailed outside their own Pacific Ocean. Many of their voyages were one way and downwind, e.g. to Tahiti and Easter Island, and many of these Polynesian emigration voyages would have ended with death for all on board. They never invented compasses, clocks, telescopes or sextants.They had to go due to overpopulation of their home islands by shitskins. What happens when todays home islands/Continents like the USA, UK, Australia and New Zealand get overpopulated with shitskins? Where can whites sail to?
