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 don’t think I have ever heard any white person ever say that. These conjectures you are jumping to are ridiculous. I personally can’t speak for America or Europe, but in Canada we are properly educated about history and not just what white people have accomplished. Saying something like that is why things still come around to being about race. Who cares? Its in the past and blaming white people for taking credit for everything in the present is what keeps this sort of animosity alive.
Personally the fact that skin colour is what separated people in the past is stupid. Why didn’t hair colour or eye colour divide people? Its the same damn thing as skin colour. We’re all human and I’m sick of people whining about issues in race. Its 2014, lets all shut the hell up about race and get on with our lives, together.
