They're saying this has some direct relation to the Olympics. Chinese concentration camps, what kind of war/hate crime is it?
Unbelievable they feel fit to host the Olympics. I'm kind of ignorant to this because of the Covid19 situation

The Chinese government (CCP) is total scum. They disappear their own people and use them for organ harvesting and slave labor. They’re also using rape as a torture tactic which just hit the news this past month. Our president dismissed it all a few days ago as “differences in cultural norms” because he’s in their pocket and many of our multinational corporations are subsidized by Uyghur slaves. Nike and Apple actually petitioned against a bill in Congress that would have banned products produced by this “forced labor.” They’re basically getting away with genocide because we like our goods cheap so we’re willing to look the other way.

Is this skateboarding? I thought this was spin to win flying Tomater Winter Olympics. There is already a thread about this and Nike, which actually intersects with skateboarding.

One is slave labor and this is just straight up slaves, not sure why it should have anything to do with skateboarding, but your precious platforms like 'The Berrics' and all these brands invested in being in the Olympics probably haven't said anything and all the Usa skateboarding 'athletes' 'couldn't wait to train again'

I have a lot of Chinese friends, and do a lot of business in China as well. I worry that the Chinese governments actions are going to make it impossible for our countries people to continue having normal relationships. This isn't just the usual Chinese made = sweatshops, which is a lot more complicated than that. This is the government literally using forced labor in factories that do work for export.

I'm so fucking tired of this lazy, dismissive take. Go read the CCP's official statements about what's going on at those camps and then ask yourself if you're cool with it. There is video, satellite, first hand verbal, etc. evidence of the atrocities going on in those camps that have been uncovered and reported on by people who've dedicated their lives to studying Chinese affairs. If you have some earth shattering new research that puts all of that into question, by all means please share it.

uhh most of the support for the camps comes from majority muslim countries and most of the negative reporting coming from evangelical fascist media groups and american politicians like rubio and pence lol. fuckin’ worms for brains. a country has less than 5% poverty rate and the CIA has to keep you mistrusting communism so they claim that china is doing what the american government actually has been doing for 200 years.

Wait, wait, wait, are you telling me the Olympics might not care if a population is being mistreated by its host nation? Are you telling me sports are political? Who would have guessed?

Man, can we just cancel this entire event already? Fuck the Olympics as a whole. The Sochi Olympics were built with slave labor, the Rio Olympics forced poor people out of their homes, the London Olympics used slave labor to make the clothing, the Olympics nearly bankrupted Montreal, the Olympic stadium in Athens is just dead space... this shit is just the most wasteful party for the elites.

Yeah those are the only two possibilities, definitely not a complex issue with history and misinformation from multiple directions.

We've already done this thread a bunch of times, no minds are being changed, just a lot of lazy invective.

I do not wish to be dismissive, but if this is anything like the Nike slave labour thread, I can save us some time. Freddie Threepwood takes a hard stance against slave labour and those who benefit from it, I’m unable to reconcile my negative feelings toward slave labour and my admiration of skaters like BA, Ishod, etc., so I ambivalently admit I’m probably a part of the problem, four people call it a CIA ruse, others try to justify it because other economic superpowers have used slavery to get ahead, some people say they will buy New Balance because they’re (mostly) made in Vietnam, a few people wonder if athletes who have ancestors who were enslaved feel conflicted about their sponsors, some suggest boycotting companies that use slave labour, others insist boycotts achieve nothing, and the whole thing is peppered with a bleating chorus of “there is no ethical consumption under capitalism.”

Am I missing anything?

spare the insults and explain to me why you’re personally cool with slave labor. Why do you back this? What complex concept justifies slavery in your eyes?

Yeah it's pretty hard to avoid slave labor unfortunately

Are skaters going to forego their beloved nike sb? Or super hyper mega cool dunks?.

None the less.... Unlikely but I hope the US doesn't wage another war that no one wants.

Seems to be lots of anti chinese rhetoric around these days.

Big wheel bite is gonna get such a hard on when he sees this thread.
