First black GI Joe in 1967.  It was simply a mole of a slightly modified white action figure with brown painting but with no real black features.  Black Panther Paris exhibit inspired creation of the real black GI Joe - militant, Black Panther emblems, gun-toting, a real member of the soul patrol  juxtaposed on the left against Hasbro’s fake black GI Joe on the right.
