    Business exploiting the 3rd world for profit? Say it isn't so! I'd never have thought such things would happen.
     
  2. How do you think SX can produce basses that retail for $150? :confused::meh:

    Wow. That's a great article. As crazy as this sounds, it's not surprising.

    the african continent is rich in almost every valuable natural resource. which is the reason why the region is kept in a constant state of social instability and war.

    point being, it ain't just the chinese...

    Interesting, yes. Surprising? Not in the least bit.

    I saw that article.
    China's shenanigans in Africa are really bothersome. I'm quite surprised by the lack of publicity.

    EDIT - actually...no, I'm not surprised by the lack of publicity and outcry. But I can't say why as it would get the thread locked in 2 seconds flat.

    Shenanigans is quite an understatement there.
     
  15. And you can't do anything about it because China sits on the UN Security Council and threatens to veto any attempt to thwart their slavery and grab for resources in Africa.
     
  16. zomg, Chinese exploiting Africans, it's like saying the US is economically dependent of the Canada. Well, that sucks for sure. I never saw that coming, never thought China could enslave people. Anyway, one thing is sure, UN won't let this happen very long. I bet they already talking about it.

    Who is Hitchens? Here's another perspective. The piece is an opinion piece by a person with a political axe to grind. If it's on the internet, it must be true, right? I mean, are you going to believe this man?

    article-1063198-00DFEB80000004B0-995_233x349.
     
  19. That guy attacking Hitchens is actually defending China's slavery and
    China's oppression of Tibet. The article was probably written by the
    Chinese government. Some people are really warped.

    Friggen' disgusting.
