  2. MORE SELF HATING WHITE IDIOTS. FUN FACT: FOR EVERY 100 YEARS OF WHITE SUPREMACY IN A NON-WHITE COUNTRY, THE GDP PER CAPITA GOES UP 40% AND THE LIFE EXPECTANCY INCREASES BY 30 YEARS. HOW'S THAT FOR GREED YOU NEW YORK TIMES BLATHERING IMBECILE? FUCKING GARBAGE…

  3. I'm currently studying the history of China, which is extensive. Very few texts however cover the country's seafaring trade history. This was a wonderful documentary which added another dimension to my knowledge of Chinese history.

    I can't believe they would sanction and film a cock fight. Despicable.

  5. Zheng He's fleet did visit Africa, but they were not explorers, they were a military expedition sent out to ensure tribute to the Chinese Emperor. These were not warships, they were transports. They carried a huge military force to ensure local rulers' fealty to China. The ships were extremely seaworthy, I remember watching a junk in the South China Sea, weathering it easily while our destroyer escort was definitely having problems. Google "AZeng He" to see the replica of a "treasure ship". It is amazing.

    This is an amazing documentary, however, I think there is a major issue, the photographer. The way he acts in the documentary, his appearance, narrations and finally his camera and photography seems very strange. They could have done it much better.

    Zheng He was a muslim, but chinese emperor still believed him and gave him big power. if a muslim doesn't place his religion upon his nation, majority of chinese still think he is a chinese. But now chinese muslims act in the other way.
