"I wonder what the slaves
are doing today?"
“What shall we have for lunch, the lobster or the cracked crab?
Can’t we have both?”
In some strange way it is comforting that African Americans have advanced so far that now they can afford to "own" their own slaves.
Ain't life just grand?
The British newspaper The Sun broke the story of this new form of equality. Singer Beyonce is having her line of overpriced sports clothes made by sweatshop slave labor.
It appears that Black Americans have become rich and powerful enough to exploit dark skinned workers in Asia.
- From The Sun - Jakub Sobik, from the charity Anti-Slavery International, said: “This is a form of sweat shop slavery. There are a number of elements here that tick the boxes in terms of slavery, the low pay, restriction of women’s movement at night and locking them in."
We have equality at last. Great God all mighty, we have equality at last.
But best of all the Bullshit really flowed heavy when Beyonce's company announced that her overpriced clothing "empowers women through sport."
Pardon me if I suspect the sweatshop slaves do not feel very empowered.
This BS proves that slavery and exploitation are not based on skin color. It is just a matter of power, money and opportunity.

But for a worker: “We don’t have our own kitchen or shower, it’s just a small bedroom. We have to share the shower block with the men so there isn’t much privacy. It is shocking and many of the women are very scared."
