This is outrageous and another reason to boycott Chinese goods whenever possible.
I knew they were putting Ungher Muslims in “re-education” camps, but this really shows their exploitive intentions and racism toward Africans.
Why aren’t we hearing more about this?

Not sure how accurate this is, but if true it’s pretty concerning.
It’s from a comment beliw the article.

“We told the entire Continent of Africa two decades ago to watch out for the Chinese when they offer money. Now there are massive Chinese Military bases throughout Africa. The Chinese bring in thousands of their own people to start businesses and are running the locals out. Chinese troops are walking through the streets of the towns and cities enforcing their will. Of course you won't here this on the MSM. These reports are coming out through the same ways we first found out about what was happening in South Africa, where White Farmers are being murdered and land is being confiscated. It's the same thing in Afghanistan. The MSM won't tell the people why US troops are still there. We set up blocking positions and buffer zones to protect the Lithium mining that is being done by Chinese companies. For years we've been protecting them. Within the last 5 years, they started making deals with the Taliban to leave them alone in exchange for massive amounts of money. All part of that Silk Road Initiative. The world is not what most are led to believe.”

Probably for the same reason threads like yours and others that suggest China, instead of "Russia, Russia, Russia!!!" is our biggest geopolitical threat doesn't continue the left's debunked but sacred narrative that Trump is a Putin controlled Russian agent. Gotta keep that narrative going in case Trump is re-elected so that Democrats have a boogie man to blame for the election loss instead of doing any soul searching or self reflecting or admitting their party's far left turn towards socialism had anything to do with turning off voters.

Plus Democrats (and sadly even some Republicans) admire China's totalitarian control over its citizens. How else does one explain the American left's admiration and praise of China's climate policies which has resulted in them having by far the world's largest carbon footprint. The left envies and desperately wants the kind of totalitarian control over American citizens that China has over its citizens.

Shining a light on China's oppression of African nations makes China look bad so don't expect to much of a fuss from the liberal media in our country. China has systematically imprisoned thousands of Muslims in western parts of the country for a few years now and outside of a couple of critical articles here and there on the subject, it's been crickets from the left wing media. Meanwhile, the exact same media absolutely lost its collective s### when Trump pushed for a travel ban against many of the same Muslim countries Obama issued a travel ban against.

Left wing media:

China's imprisonment of thousands of its Muslim citizens = no big deal

Trump's travel ban against basically the same Muslim countries Obama ordered a travel ban against = "Trump is RAAAACCIIIST!!" "ORANGE MAN BAAADD!!"

Perhaps you are correct, but why aren’t African Americans demanding attention to this?

That reminds me of that exterpt from the Documentary "Empire of Dust" released in 2011. The Chinese guy in that clip don't have any guilt.

Most American blacks believe what the liberal media tells them. The few that think for themselves tend to be conservative Republicans. The irony.

Yes indeed, in the eyes of career politicians and most elites, the future of governance is the Chinese surveillance state coupled with faux democracy. IOW, “It’s a wonderful day citizen, don’t make us shoot you!”
