He wrote about it, much as Marco Polo would do later for his own travels, and is one of our sources on what viking were like (and by all accounts, he wrote about them more accurately than western scholars of the same period did) Oh, or Ibn Battuta who travelled throughout Africa long before europeans did, and even went to Europe himself. And that’s just some example of Muslim medieval travel writers Everything is about race because white people keep telling everyone that their race is the only one who every got anything done. i have heard of precisely zero non-european explorers ever in my life, and that fucking sucks. this exhibit is amazing and i need to learn more.

Zhenghe went to over 40 countries in Asia and Africa and probably went even further, but I didn’t encounter that in history books before. He brought gifts from China to every country he went to and everyone loved him. It was just like “Hey, I’m here with a water-helicarrier and a gift,” and the kings of every country were lilke “holy shit son well here have a giraffe.” There are paintings depicting him leading a giraffe as well. Check him out guys, he’s really cool That is so awesome. Fuck western history. This is the real shit.

She May Be The Most Unstoppable Scientist In The World
Dauqan is a woman scientist in what’s possibly the hardest place on Earth to be just a woman: Yemen.
The World Economic Forum ranks Yemen as the worst country for women’s rights. In Yemen, it’s illegal for women to just leave the house without permission from a male relative.
Even as a young girl, she was rebel. “I was a little naughty,” she says with a snicker.

 Sir, I am getting increasingly
 annoyed at the barrage of
 articles about teenagers, and the
 adults who keep trying to
 explain our behaviour "Moods

 the teenage brain?, Mar 1)
 I am 16 and a straight-A
 student, like most of my friends.
 We are not as irrational and
 immature as adults seem to
 think. We've grown up with
 financial crises and accept that
 most of us will be unemployed
 We no longer flinch at bloody
 images of war because we've
 grown up seeing the chaos in
 the Middle East and elsewhere
 Most of us are cynical and
 pessimistic because of the
 environment we've grown up in
 which should be explanation
 enough for our apparent
 insolence and disrespect,
 without "experts" having to
 write articles about it.
 Has no one ever seen that we
 are angry at the world we live
 in? Angry that we will have to
 clean up your mess, while you
 hold us in contempt, analysing
 our responses as though we
 were another species?
 I would like adults to treat us
 not as strange creatures from
 other world but as human
