    Battuta is actually one of the worst scholars of all time.

    Most medieval Arab scholars wrote about how savage sub-Saharan Africans were. It's pretty funny to read some of their writings. And see how little has changed in the last 1,000 years.

    Battuta on the other hand was one of the few Arab scholars to actually praise niggers.
