China exports hair weaves and wigs made by political prisoners

Do you use hair weaves?

Meghan Markle, the environmental and all-round hypocrite with U.S. presidential aspirations, whose natural hair is kinky because she is half-black, wears wigs, hair extensions and weaves.

Markle’s latest wig or weave in her recent video appearance resembles the ghoul in the 2002 horror flick, The Ring.

If you, like Markle, wears weaves, extensions or wigs made from human hair, you should know that they may have come from political prisoners in China.

CBS News reports that on July 1, 2020, federal authorities in New York seized a shipment of beauty accessories, including 13 tons of weaves and other hair products suspected to be made out of human hair taken from people locked inside a Chinese internment camp.

Brenda Smith, executive assistant commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection ‘s Office of Trade, told the Associated Press that “The production of these goods constitutes a very serious human rights violation, and the detention order is intended to send a clear and direct message to all entities seeking to do business with the United States that illicit and inhumane practices will not be tolerated in U.S. supply chains.”

This is the second time this year that CBP has slapped one of its rare detention orders on shipments of hair weaves from China, based on suspicions that people making them face human rights abuses. The orders are used to hold shipping containers at the U.S. ports of entry until the agency can investigate claims of wrongdoing.

Rushan Abbas, a Uighur American activist whose sister, a medical doctor, went missing in China almost two years ago and is believed to be locked in a detention camp, said women who use hair weaves should think about who might be making them: “This is so heartbreaking for us. I want people to think about the slavery people are experiencing today. My sister is sitting somewhere being forced to make what, hair pieces?”

Wednesday’s shipment was made by Lop County Meixin Hair Product Co. Ltd., an exporter in China’s far west Xinjiang region, where, over the past four years, the Chinese Communist government has imprisoned an estimated 1 million or more Uighurs — ethnic Turkic minorities — in internment camps and prisons where they are physically abused, forced to engage in slave labor, and to denounce their Muslim religion and Turkic language. Beijing suspects the Uighurs of harboring separatist tendencies because of their distinct culture, language and religion.

Reports by the AP and other news organizations have repeatedly found that people inside the internment camps and prisons, which activists call “black factories,” are making sportswear and other apparel for popular U.S. brands.

The AP tried to visit Hetian Haolin Hair Accessories Co. more than a year ago during an investigation into forced labor inside the camps. But police ordered the driver taking AP journalists to turn back and warned that the cab’s coordinates were being tracked.

Before the cab turned back, the journalists did see the factory from the road. On top of the factory was a sign, “Haolin Hair Accessories,” in big red letters. The factory was ringed with barbed wire fencing and surveillance cameras, and the entrance was blocked by helmeted police.  Former political prisoners in other parts of Xinjiang have described being shuttled to work in fenced, guarded compounds during the day and taken back to internment camps at night.

Congressman Chris Smith (R-NJ), who has taken a lead on anti-human trafficking legislation, said that allegations of forced labor are “not surprising” and that “It is likely that many slave labor products continue to surreptitiously make it into our stores.”

The Chinese Ministry of Affairs, of course, denies there is forced labor or that ethnic minorities are persecuted and imprisoned.

Although prohibited by the 1930 Tariff Act, it is extremely rare for the U.S. government to block imports produced by forced labor. In the past 90 years, the federal government has only enforced the law 54 times. The majority of bans, 75%, blocked goods from China.

On June 17, President Donald Trump signed the bipartisan Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act of 2020, condemning “gross human rights violations of specified ethnic Muslim minority groups in the Xinjiang region in China.”

This is what would be called [Real cultural appropriation,…isn’t it?

I must admit, I have always wondered at the very thought that “cultural appropriation” only seems to apply to those who are not black. We have seen for years that black women have straightened their hair to take on the look of European women. They purchase wigs (just look at “Auntie Maxine” out of California.) Yet, no one is so bold as to call them out for cultural appropriate of “white or European physical traits.”

I might be inclined to take a bit more seriously one of these Schwartzers who complain about “cultural appropriation” when they appear barefoot and bare breasted in a grass skirt with a bone in the nose, a feather up the butt, elephant dung in the armpits and jabber in Swahili.

Prince Harry certainly contracted a terminal case of Jungle Fever.
HRH should have summoned Harry into her Royal Presence and informed Harry that this “Markle creature” does not exist.

Never paid much attention to this before, but since you brought it up and there are old school pics…..as a student of art–which includes anatomy….have to agree that Meghan, indeed, did alter her nose. Your nose and the distance between your eyes never wavers in proportion to your other cranial measurements—unless you consider that your nose never really stops growing (but it NEVER gets proportionally smaller). Ms. Meghan has the tip of her nose and her nares narrowed at some point, and I think we can all agree…straightens her hair.

this is how this culture has survived for over 5,000 years, with pure evil. WHY are we still trading with the devil?? our fore fathers warned us about this.

I thought it started with Nixon’s making the first trip to China and from there it has become out of control 😉

It is difficult to not buy goods made in China, but my wife and I are committed to it. Shame on all to big box stores, toy stores, and tech companies that have profited by doing business with this unreformed communist country.

TD . . . I am with you and your wife. I always look for the country of manufacture. Some years ago when I was looking for a new kitchen table. Everything I looked at was made in China. Finally I went to a store here in Portland that hand made furniture. As near as I could come to what I wanted was an oblong table, but I needed one that was square, in order to fit my kitchen. I paid to have to make me one that was square. It is in the “butcher block” style, and I have… Read more »

Ditto, I check labels, too. Most stuff from China is CRAP anyway.

We’ve been trying to do that for decades, Chinese stuff is junk. I find old stuff that was Made in USA and it either still works or is of superior quality and workmanship. They made the prices so low that US businesses went under, and that was the plan all along. When I worked at Wallyworld, over 90 percent of the stuff was all from China, and I’m being conservative.

Megan M jumped on the “racist” bandwagon like others just recently…before that she never addressed it. What an opportunist 😉 She’s a day late on her arrival in Hellywood. I detest everything that place represents. No theaters for me in twenty years 😉

Wow! The difference in Markle’s facial appearance is striking. Her nose is the most prominent difference. The fact that we have supposedly “high class” women availing themselves of supplemental hair which comes from imprisoned slaves is just beyond the pale. When I first read this, I literally felt as though I had been kicked in the stomach.

Same here, Auntie….how RICH that those representing BLM, many of whom are Black, many of whom fancy themselves ex-slaves from over 157 years ago in the USA, might be patronizing Chinese wig exports made by enslaved Chinese economic captives—and, wearing their hair, to boot. Isn’t life so difficult if you have do the research before you sign up?

Why aren’t the media getting their hair in a bunch about the possibility of catching the man made virus from Chinese imported slave labor goods? Now they say the virus can live in the air for a long time….they keep changing things.
