China holds 16% of our debt, created some ingenious fake Apple stores and had their basketball team beat the s**t out of a team from one of our most esteemed universities. But now we’ve got revenge, with free labor as usual. The new MLK Memorial was built by unpaid Chinese laborers brought together by renowned sculptor Lei Yixin to “work for national honor and bring glory to the Chinese people.” Though I’m sure it’s a much better feeling than they get making Nikes, I’m not sure it meshes with MLK’s dream of interracial togetherness (sex) and workers’ rights. Besides, couldn’t the organizers of the project have found American workers to build the memorial? There’s plenty of brown Americans sitting out front of Home Depot looking for work as we speak. I hired a few of them earlier this summer. They moved our whole house in two hours. Literally the whole house. Two short, brown dudes with silver teeth picked it up from the foundation and everything. Damn language gap…
