Lost in the world but I think I found something.

 Zheng He travelled through Asia, to the Middle East, and even East Africa. But you’d likely never heard of him before.
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)
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.

  • In the days following 9/11, more than 1200 men of foreign origin in the US were illegally abducted, detained and tortured for as long as 3 years. The government did not find evidence linking a single one of them to the 9/11 attack. Eventually more than 1000 were released. To this date, most of them suffer from depression and stress, and have not been able to focus enough to hold a job. - New York, 2009
