Slavery is Thriving in China…They Made Your Nike Air Jordans, And Your iPhone…And, And, And

White American’s are being chastised over the slavery of black people for a time period way prior to any current living soul even being a glimpse in anyone’s eye. As such, reparations are being demanded due to the inhumane treatment of their long since deceased relatives they know little, or even more so, nothing about.

Their claim is that what happened over a century and a half ago, directly affects the way they have willfully chosen to currently live their lives. Please pay attention to the word “willfully.”

The topic of equality for all was prevalent during the 1960s when Dr. Martin Luther King led his people up and down the Main Streets of America in protest of segregation and in favor of equal rights for all.

He, and others like him, were enormously successful in their efforts. We watched as separate water fountains were removed. We watched passengers who were previously forbidden to do so start moving to the front of the bus.

We observed diners and restaurants serving up mashed potatoes and green beans to their hungry customers, regardless of their skin color. And we witnessed many other accomplishments as they were being achieved in the name of progress and racial harmony.

Integration became reality as students were bused to one side of town or the next in efforts to teach our nation’s children how all of us are created equal. And for the most part, these measures worked. Racism became less and less of an issue.

But this is American history. Maybe racism has not completely played itself out yet, and we still have a way to go, but if we compare the U.S. to communist China, we’re looking pretty damn good.

America has turned into a melting pot of diversity and foreign cultures, and the enslavement of others is strictly forbidden by law. But, other countries have as yet to develop to this level.

Enter communist China where thousands of Uyghur Muslim citizens are being forced by their government to work endless hours in China’s sweatshop factories against their will. But it gets worse. Far worse.

Huge international corporations, including many based in America, are taking full advantage of this situation. Fasten your seat belts. Here are but a few of them.

Abercrombie & Fitch, Amazon, GAP, H&M, Nike, Jack & Jones, Sharp, Siemens, Skechers, ASUS, Apple, Samsung, Huawei, BMW, Volkswagen, Sony, Polo Ralph Lauren, Puma, Victoria’s Secret, and Vivo.

Altogether, 83 well known global brands which are purchased daily around the world, are being manufactured by slaves, for mere pennies on the dollar. China’s government claims these workers are the “backward” and “disturbed by religious extremism.” They deserve to be slaves.

After extensive research, an ASPI report claimed, “The workers in these factories are brought and kept in dormitories after they finish their ‘re-education’ in the camps. In their workplace, they lead a harsh and segregated life. They are forbidden to practice religion and are required to compulsorily take Mandarin lessons. Most strikingly, local governments and private brokers are paid a price per head by the Xinjiang provincial government to organize the labor assignments.”

Family members of these workers are left behind in the labor camps where they reside to assure no one working tediously in the factories attempts to escape. They are warned that any misconduct could result in dire consequences for their family. One Uyghur worker who was secretly interviewed made the following statement.

“We were all former ‘re-education camp’ detainees and were threatened with further detention if they disobeyed the government’s work assignments. The police regularly search our dormitories and check our phones for any religious content. If a Quran is found, the owner will be sent back to the ‘re-education camp’ for 3-5 years.”

For the sake of exposing a few other corporations that are condoning this activity for the sake of profit, here are some more. Adidas, Puma, Dell Computers, Sony, Huawei, Lenovo, and Samsung.

The exploitation of human life, regardless of a person’s race, ethnicity, religion, or any factor for that matter, goes totally against the grain of American values, except of course, when big dollars are involved.

And we say, shame on these corporate dogs for engaging in such conduct. What are your thoughts concerning this? We’d like to know.
