In the US we sell desks made by prisoners to public schools. They have websites where you can buy goods made from prisoners. https://www.thrillist.com/gear/products-made-by-prisoners-clothing-furniture-electronics

This type of behavior is unfortunately not limited to China, it is happening right next to us

Prison jobs are not mandatory. Forced labor is illegal in the US.

They are not in jail to force them to work, they are in there because they are criminals. I'm sorry that the murderers aren't allowed access to your workplace.

If you don't like that the only jobs available to them pay so little the you can offer them a higher paying job.

Is also perfectly reasonable to pay people less if you are giving them board and lodging. That happens outside prison.

You are technically correct, but when the option is to stay locked in a cell all day or do some labor, most will choose the labor. It's a coerced situation.

In fact the 16th amendment specifically outlaws slavery except in case of imprisonment

It's not coercion if the alternative has nothing to do with the job. I mean you can literally say the same thing about every offer ever made. Wouldn't you rather keep your money and get the things you buy? Is the fact that you wont have the things you buy if you don't hand over the money mean that every sale is coerced?

At that point the word coercion no longer has a meaning.

Whataboutery.

That'd be a valid complaint if I was drawing attention away from China, but I'm not, I'm saying they're both bad.

[–]jet199[S] 3 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 3 fun -  (3 children)

But why? America isn't the topic, there's no genocide in the US, so you are drawing attention away.

[–]magnora7 2 insightful - 3 fun2 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 3 fun -  (1 child)

People look halfway across the world to be astonished by things that are happening in their own backyards

[–]jet199[S] 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

There is no genocide in the US.

In Germany they for most parts don't even try this without a "therapeutical" consensus with the prisoner. At least they did not any more after a lawyer friend of mine and i did intervene on this when this (now) colleague of mine was in jail.

This system of explotation of a workforce nevertheless stays the same. Like Ikea had made parts of its furniture made in GDR in the 1980ies it now pulls the same card with Czech Republic, Slovakia and Slovenia.

Based China.

Was that a mistake? Who is this advertisement directed to??

[–]jet199[S] 8 insightful - 4 fun8 insightful - 3 fun9 insightful - 4 fun -  (4 children)

Looks like business to business advertising. They are quite open about it.

I'm in shock. This is so upsetting.

I've literally seen a left wing Muslim in the UK, who I respect, have a full scale meltdown and turn pro Trump over this situation in the last 24 hours. It's just simply one of the most important things in the world going on right now. A genocide going on right in front of our faces. The crazy political games going on in the US are simply nonsense in comparison.

[–]AcceleratedWallops 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

Did I miss something? Has Trump addressed this at all?

"20 Camels" same price as in Saudi Arabia.

I am not sure if this is real or if this anti-china propaganda (which has been going on for 4 years).

[–]WHEREISTHETOILETS 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

BE SERIOUS, LOL.. OBVIOUSLY, THIS IS A FAKE ADVERTISEMENT..

[–]jet199[S] 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

There are multiple adverts on different websites in China where the internet is highly censored by the government. See my post.

[–]ReeferMadness 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

But the left still claims America is the most racist country in the world. Idiots.

Sailer wrote about Uigher hair slaves several months ago.

Unz:

U.S. authorities seize weaves suspected to be made of hair taken from people locked in Chinese internment camps

Federal authorities in New York on Wednesday seized a shipment of weaves and other beauty accessories suspected to be made out of human hair taken from people locked inside a Chinese internment camp. [Cont...]

[–]WHEREISTHETOILETS 2 insightful - 5 fun2 insightful - 4 fun3 insightful - 5 fun -  (2 children)

I WILL LIKE TO PLACE AN ORDER FOR SIX MALE AND TWELVE FEMALE, PREFERABLY UNDER AGE OF TWELVE TO SEVENTEEN.

MUST BE ACCUSTOMED TO PERFORMING LABOR INTENSIVE TASKS SUCH AS PLANTING CROPS AND CLEANING PIG STALLS.

CHINA IS THE FURTURE.

Do they sell internationally? I would buy and then give them freedom.

[–]jet199[S] 4 insightful - 3 fun4 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

You know what, I think it's highly likely they do. There's already a large slave trade coming out of China in lorries. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/uk-england-essex-50162617

Where's ISIS when you need them?

[–][deleted] 7 insightful - 8 fun7 insightful - 7 fun8 insightful - 8 fun -  (0 children)

CIA stopped funding them.

[–]jet199[S] 7 insightful - 4 fun7 insightful - 3 fun8 insightful - 4 fun -  (3 children)

ISIS were an end times cult. They didn't want to help Muslims, they wanted to start armageddon. In Islamic traditional the end of the world involves a war in the middle east between Islam and Rome. Unfortunately for them I don't think Italy is up for it right now.

[–]WHEREISTHETOILETS 2 insightful - 3 fun2 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 3 fun -  (1 child)

in the end times, jesus will return and be friends with mohammad and they will burn all infidels.

both will be riding white unicorns.

[–]jet199[S] 1 insightful - 3 fun1 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

So that's why I'm seeing so many young people with unicorn emojis in their profiles, they just love Jesus so much?
