بوكسيلوس SPLUS Ma A 83INT 14th century Chinese explorer Zheng He's ship compared to Columbus's deducecanoe ourobousfamilia deducecanoe chickwithmonkey potootagath wingleader wakeupslaves the-goddamazon LOL man never forget white people did nothing first neither the best they sleep and eat false propaganda Ugh why the shit does that have to turn into a race thing? Why does EVERYTHING have to turn into a race thing? because white people have made sure that everything is about race as proved by the fact that when you say explorer you think of a bunch of white guys walking the world and discovering it ~exotic wonders~ even though Zheng He travelled through Asia to the Middle East and even East Africa But you’d likely never heard of him before Same reason you never heard of Ahmad Ibn Fadlan an Arab traveller who as early as the 10th century went to the Volga area for diplomatic reasons 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 That boat is a frickin aircraft carrier comparatively Holy crap And no Never heard a peep 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 Meme
