Experts: Companies ‘Absolutely’ Can Trace Supply Chains to Find Chinese Slave Labor

This month’s implementation of the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act – a law that requires companies to prove imports from the occupied Chinese region of East Turkistan were not produced by slaves – has triggered an outcry among companies insisting due diligence of supply chains to abide by the law is needlessly onerous, if not impossible.

Human rights advocates, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, and experts in the field of forensic testing all agree that having full knowledge of a product’s supply chain, and avoiding the use of risky products from East Turkistan like cotton is not an insurmountable burden. The technology exists, and is widely accessible, for companies to test the raw materials used in their products to ensure they do not come from East Turkistan and thus, are highly likely to have been produced via slave labor.

China is currently engaging in a genocide of the Uyghur, Kazakh, Kyrgyz, and other non-Han ethnic groups in East Turkistan, which it refers to as its “Xinjiang province.” In addition to the use of concentration camps to indoctrinate and torture millions of civilians and the mass forced sterilization of women of “undesirable” ethnic backgrounds, extensive evidence compiled by human rights researchers suggests Chinese regime agents are also enslaving significant percentages of the population. Multiple studies published in the past three years indicate that the Chinese Communist Party is forcing Uyghurs and others to work picking cotton and selling Uyghur slaves to factories nationwide.

The East African slave trade; when will the Arabs be asked for reparations? (Video)

The slave trade in East Africa, which lasted well into the twentieth century, was probably at least as extensive as the better-known transatlantic slave trade. Curiously, although Europeans are being urged to make amends and give financial reparation, nothing of the kind is being demanded of the Arab nations of the Middle East.

The great lie; the awful myth that Europeans began the slave trade in West Africa (Video)

Guilt for the slave trade in West Africa is routinely and erroneously laid at the door of Europeans. Centuries later, white people in Europe and America are urged to apologise and make reparation for the supposed sins of their distant ancestors. The whole affair is founded upon a misunderstanding of African history.

‘The British Have Been Slaves’ – Comedy Icon Cleese Has Mic Taken for Mocking Reparations

British comedy legend John Cleese had his mic taken by woke co-panellists at an event in Austin, Texas, after pointing out that British imperialism was not unique and that the British, too, were once slaves.

Cleese, of Monty Python and Fawlty Towers fame, made the remarks at a South by Southwest festival event titled ‘John Cleese in Conversation’, according to a highly-slanted Hollywood Reporter article.

Riffing on an alleged joke about colonialism by Daily Show correspondent Dulcé Sloan, who is black, Cleese is said to have remarked that people “forget the British Empire was the basic political unit of organization for 6,000 years – the British didn’t start [colonising].”

Indeed, colonisation and empire-building was conducted not only by the British, French, Russians, and other European peoples, but by non-white civilisations such as that of the Arabs, which spread by conquest from the Arabian peninsula through the Levant, North Africa, and — for a time — Spain and Portugal, and that of the Turks, who originate in Central Asia but have now almost totally displaced the predominantly Greek, Christian civilisation of Anatolia and East Thrace, including the former Constantinople — lending credence to the old adage that “many a true word is said in jest”.

Mali and Kanem; African empires whose prosperity was founded upon the slave trade (Video)

There is a great desire on the part of people of African and Caribbean heritage to boast of the wonders of Africa in the pre-colonial era. We are told, for instance, that the richest man who has ever lived was a black African ruler called Mansa Musa who ruled the empire of Mali. All this took place long before white people arrived in that part of Africa. What we seldom hear about though is that the empires of Mail and Kanem were, like the British Empire, founded upon the slave trade and that Mans Musa was as guilty of profiting by this business as was Edward Colston of Bristol
