China isn’t known for human rights, quality products, or labor laws, and the highest paid in the United States are noticing. Not the celebrities, entrepreneurs, or Democrat politicians, but one particular NBA star.
China makes most of the products you see on box store shelves, and even a large amount of dropshipping websites you visit have their products coming from China. There’s a supply chain issue for Christmas because of imports from China and other countries to a lesser extent.
Enes Kanter, center for the Boston Celtics, posted a picture on Twitter with a message to Nike, China, Lebron James, and Michael Jordan:
Perfect execution. Literally.
China should be answering some questions, and the US should be asking them. When will child labor and slave labor stop? Why aren’t the “woke” politicians upset about Muslims getting discriminated against? When will trade with China halt until human rights are respected?
It is all very convenient after the US just bought Chinese drones.
Interesting how human rights only matter on US soil when we live in the most prosperous country in the world, and every race, religion, ethnicity, gender, and disability has the opportunity to thrive. Still, when it comes to other countries, US politicians turn a blind eye. Kind of like exporting energy. As long as it isn’t here, right?
The shoes say, “MADE WITH SLAVE LABOR,” “NO MORE EXCUSES,” “HYPOCRITE NIKE,” and “MODERN DAY SLAVERY.” Very accurate for the state of Chinese culture. It’s not the citizen’s fault. Xi Jinping’s decisions as a dictator and the Communist Party are doing all of this.
And to think, there are people in the US that want Communism to exist in American politics. People are finally taking a stand and calling out the rulers of the world. Let’s Go, Brandon.
No amount of money is worth lowering ethics and morality. Though Kanter enjoys the money from China, which makes up roughly 10% of the total revenue for the NBA, it’s worth the risk of being fired or sparking change in the league’s involvement with China.
In a video to his followers, Kanter said, “Don’t forget, when you put those shoes on your feet, or you put that t-shirt on your back, there are so many tears and so much oppression and so much blood behind it all.”
Kanter is 100% correct. The standards of other countries are well below the standards of the US, yet we complain about oppression here? You hear complaints that people can’t get ahead because of their skin color or their gender preference, or any other ailment that they suffer, and in China, there are slave labor camps housing Uyghur Muslims as you read this.
President Joe Biden won’t do anything because he’s a weak leader. He lacks the testicular guts to stand up to the Communist Party of China, and until he leaves office, no member of the US administration will have the opportunity to do so.
