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.

Turns out we primarily teach the history of our own country in, well, our own country. What a shocker.

You may not be aware of it, but in other parts of the world, we’re also taught that Columbus was THE adventurer, that Marco Polo’s adventures were what made it to the history books and were the only ones making noise about. Western European fairytales and legends absolutely saturated the bookshelves and TV specials, and were touted as somehow being more fantastic than whatever set of lore we had here in our part of the world (Asia, for myself).
In a world that’s becoming more and more interconnected, with more and more discoveries being made (especially in regards to history), I would think, perhaps optmistically, that there’d be more of a spotlight on other major historical players and their discoveries/accomplishments. Hell, we’re STILL seeing whitewashed depictions of Romans, still seeing the erasure of people of color in Europe, still downplaying the accomplishments of many non-European civilzations that, without their discoveries and inventions, we wouldn’t be enjoying a lot of modern comforts.
I get that if you’re in America, you’re gonna learn about American history. But it’s hella jacked up that a lot of kids in Malaysia are able to recognize George Washington than they do with their own leaders and sultans.

“Being and/or feeling fat is usually different for men than for women. A man can eat compulsively, be overweight, dislike his body and still be thought of - and think of himself- as attractive. A man who is twenty or thirty pounds overweight is not an outcast. He simply has a “beer belly” or a “paunch”. He is not generally considered disgusting or repulsive; he does not usually having a hard time finding clothes that fit him.
On the other hand, a woman’s appearance is crucial to her evaluation as a human being; a woman feels she IS what she looks like. She may be brilliant, perceptive and competent, but if she is fat, she has to struggle to prove her worth. People stare at her; she is unable to find clothes; she is refused jobs and denied men. For [most women], overweight is synonymous with ugliness, failure and selfdegradation.”

Asami probably has tons of Future Industries business to do in Republic City, but instead she says no, I want to go to the southern Water Tribe with my best friend because she might need me there and that’s infinitely more important.

No one else offered; it was just Asami. And the way she said it, like let me come with you please. She’d follow Korra anywhere if that’s what she wanted. And judging by her expression when Korra refused, this is not something Asami is just doing because she feels obligated as a friend; this is something she legitimately wants to do.

Asami just loves Korra a whole lot.
