China Always Wins

MLK Jr. Honored By Statue Built By Unpaid Chinese Laborers

progress!The dedication of the new Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial has been postponed due to God’s impending wrath upon the East Coast, but hey, at least this gives us time to reflect upon the fancy new monument and all the crazy controversies surrounding it! Early on there was of course the obligatory “Shouldn’t they have hired a black person to sculpt this thing?” controversy, but that is boring. Thankfully, there is more to argue about, regarding this sculpture! In some sort of tragic/ironic twist, the “Stone of Hope” sculpture was built by unpaid Chinese workers, because nothing says “I have a dream!” like importing a bunch of slaves to build a statue of a famous civil rights leader.

What a proud moment for America, because we finally got around to building a statue for a person who is sort of extremely important to our national history, civil rights, etc. etc. And the best part is that we got a bunch of free labor! People were just so excited about this monument, everyone said, “Who needs money for rent when you can have national pride and a good feeling in your heart?” What a great planet we share!

While often overshadowed by his civil rights legacy, King was an outspoken defender of labor rights and was supporting striking sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee when he was assassinated. But his memorial was built, in part, using free labor imported from China.

The foundation behind the memorial, which deserves tremendous praise for successfully pulling off the monumental project, controversially selected Chinese sculptor Lei Yixin — known for his bust of Mao Zedong — to be the lead sculptor on the project. Couldn’t the foundation have “chosen a black American, let alone an American,” critics ask?

More egregiously, despite promises from the organization to use local unionized labor for the project, the sculpture was completed using workers imported from China working for nothing but “national pride.”

The fact that the Chinese workers were not being paid was only discovered when the BAC sent an investigator to determine if they were being exploited. While they were given room and board and hoped to be paid upon returning to China, using free labor to construct Kings monument seems to fly in the face of what he stood for. “It is a crime for people who live in this rich nation to receive starvation wages,” King told the Memphis workers.

Well, maybe we don’t actually know Martin Luther King, Jr.’s views on Chinese labor. If these were not Chinese workers from Tennessee, then really anything goes. [ThinkProgress]

    So the Chinese Communists used cheap unpaid non-union slave labor to build this? Who the hell do they think they are…. Republicans?

  2. Texan_Bulldog

    So black American's should have built it? I'm not a race relations expert, but I'm pretty sure that would have ticked off Jesse Jackson & Al Sharpton.

    1. MichelesPantalones

      Black Americans should certainly have been chosen to *sculpt* it, and should certainly have been included on the team that built it. Just not at "slavery wage," being as that's such a sensitive issue for those Overly-Sensitive Black Folks, and all.

    2. zhubajie

      You can be sure that no matter who built it or how it looked, someone would have complained. That's the nature of US life, nowadays.

      I wonder if heroic nudity, like Washington as Jupiter or imperial robes, like Mazu at the summit of Meizhou Island would gotten less or more complaining.

  3. Arken

    Also, it's kind of ugly. Not as ugly as the WWII memorial, but it's not great. It also seems to have been designed to look half-finished for some reason.

      1. Arken

        I was thinking it was so people couldn't be told to go kiss his big black ass after they said something racist.

          1. MichelesPantalones

            I find that's the best answer to any questions asked here.

            That, or that other old familiar standby, "All of them, Katie."

          1. BerkeleyBear

            That's also why the King family chose a pose that has been described as "imperious" "imperial" and "pissed off."

            I think it is about fucking perfect – if King came back today, you know he'd be both happy and hacked off all at once. As the Boondocks explored a couple of years ago.

          2. BerkeleyBear

            Eerie similarity.

            In Chico's defense, few people there have a clue what Dr. King actually looked like (or much reference to African Americans generally, unless they play for Chico State).

    1. V572 T-Blow

      As someone said, the WW II memorial is, in a metaphorical sense, Hitler's tomb. Unfortunately it also looks like the tomb of an egomaniacal dictator — someone like, let's say Hitler.

    2. sezme

      Labour issues aside, I rather like it. It actually looks like him, and he looks truly pissed off which is an essential component of actually getting things done (along with a dream and a plan).

      1. Arken

        It looks kind of like him, but it looks a lot more like a clip art image of him someone would use on a MLK Day office flyer about diversity in the workplace.

  4. Schmannnity

    Let freedom ring from every sweatshop, every out placed workshop, every prison workshop, Let Freedom Ring!

  5. orygoon

    That sucks. However, "hoped to be paid upon returning to China"? That seems naive, and not on the part of the Chinese workers.

  6. Callyson

    Well, now we know whose wrath is being expressed by Hurricane Irene…
    Dr King, in heaven: "Fuck this non – violence idea, time to get medieval on those people…"

    1. MichelesPantalones

      If Brother Martin saw half the shit that was going down in his once-great and beloved country, he'd be mightily in favour of kicking some serious ass.

  7. Callyson

    Oh, and it gets worse…from Think Progress:
    Last September, the foundation promised in a statement:
    “[We] will employ skilled craft workers from the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers (BAC) to work with Master Lei Yixin, Sculptor of Record, to complete the assembly and installation,”
    They eventually reneged on that vow, despite a plethora of unemployed skilled stonemasons in U.S.
    Assholes.

    1. MichelesPantalones

      I thought their response to the accusations of using slave labour REALLY took the cake. Something about not believing that anyone should be discriminated against, you know, like paying these heathen Chinee to do the work would somehow be oppressive, in some bizarrely unexplained sort of way.

    2. Doktor Zoom

      Happily, the National Cathedral now has plenty of work for stonemasons. Thank you, earthquake!

  8. mrpuma2u

    While I am sad that MLK left before his time, I am glad he is not around to see people bitching over who made his statue. This is just people being angry that China owns most of our debt, and now we owe them a free statue on top of all that.

    1. Schmannnity

      I am glad that he does not have to watch Jesse Jackson fellate his corpse for profit for 43 years.

          1. Chet Kincaid

            I don't have a problem with the man's family receiving remuneration from a society that routinely shoots its conscience. What have Glenn Beck and Rick Perry paid, for digging up MLK's corpse and parading around with it wearing a goddamned tricorner hat?

          2. V572 T-Blow

            … These slaves constituted a peculiar and powerful interest. All knew that this interest was somehow the cause of the war. To strengthen, perpetuate, and extend this interest was the object for which the insurgents would rend the Union even by war, while the Government claimed no right to do more than to restrict the territorial enlargement of it. Neither party expected for the war the magnitude or the duration which it has already attained. Neither anticipated that the cause of the conflict might cease with or even before the conflict itself should cease. Each looked for an easier triumph, and a result less fundamental and astounding. Both read the same Bible and pray to the same God, and each invokes His aid against the other. It may seem strange that any men should dare to ask a just God's assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men's faces, but let us judge not, that we be not judged. The prayers of both could not be answered. That of neither has been answered fully. The Almighty has His own purposes. "Woe unto the world because of offenses; for it must needs be that offenses come, but woe to that man by whom the offense cometh." If we shall suppose that American slavery is one of those offenses which, in the providence of God, must needs come, but which, having continued through His appointed time, He now wills to remove, and that He gives to both North and South this terrible war as the woe due to those by whom the offense came, shall we discern therein any departure from those divine attributes which the believers in a living God always ascribe to Him? Fondly do we hope, fervently do we pray, that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman's two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said "the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether."

      There's a tradition of lefties in the US being anti-Chinese. A century ago, Jack London published a short story about exterminating the Chinese with germ warfare and replacing them with US settlers (the genuine fate of the Native Americans, of course). I suppose few would be so open today, but there's no lack of Yellow Peril prejudices in the US, in all camps and factions.

      1. tejanojim

        Title of the London piece? The guy wasn't perfect, but he wrote "People of the Abyss" about London's (the city) working poor, and as part of the research lived for weeks at a time on the streets. So he very much had a social conscience, and I would be surprised to hear that he was blatantly racist against the Chinese.

        1. sezme

          I've never read it, but it's called The Unparalleled Invasion.

          Edit: okay, I've now read it (it's short). Remarkably cold-blooded. What Zhubajie said is correct, but we must hope that global movement and communication manages to break down the tribal prejudices that lead to this sort of thinking in 1910.

          1. tejanojim

            Holy shit. That was more paranoid and racist than Heinlein's "Fifth Column", and that's saying something. I stand corrected and saddened. Thanks, sezme, Pigsy.

          2. zhubajie

            I hope your right about breaking down prejudices, but when I think of the constant US wars in my 58 years, all against "lesser breeds outside the law," I'm less optimistic.

          3. sezme

            Well my point is that human history has always been a narrative of tribe against tribe. In the past it was much easier to see The Other as less than human. One of the benefits of modernity is that The other is more likely than ever to be someone you know.

            I'm sure we'll continue to find excuses to go around killing each other, but in my hopeful moments, I think that getting to know people from other tribes as we have unprecedented opportunity to do these days will tend to move things in the right direction. And I think that we are also less likely than ever before to identify strongly with one tribe to the exclusion of Others at least to the point of contemplating germ warfare with evident glee. Pace, Teabaggers.

        2. zhubajie

          If you read popular fiction from the late 19th-early 20th centuries, you'll find lots of racial massacres and genocides. Even someone as relatively liberal as Conan Doyle exterminates the ape-men in _The Forgotten World_ quite coolly. Most of the attitudes which led to the atrocities of the 20th century were pioneered in those days.

        3. zhubajie

          “The Unparalleled Invasion,”1910, exterminates the Chinese with germ warfare. If you do a Google search on "Jack London Racism", you'll find he claimed to be a White Man first and Socialist second. Of course, there's lots of excuse-making out there in Web-land, but not everyone in that day was racist or anti-Chinese. Mark Twain's essay, "To the Person Sitting in Darkness", about the Boxer Rebellion, is often re-printed in anthologies of US literature used in Chinese Universities.

    1. Crank_Tango

      I got a chinese knockoff of the lincoln memorial down in chinatown. he looks a little off but it is a great place for me to practice doing glenn beck's I Have a Dream speech.

  9. Radiotherapy®

    Maybe we could get the FBI to look into this matter. You know, check their files under MLK Jr., Labor, Commies, etc.

  10. dr_giraud

    Lady Liberty 2011: LEND me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses. . . . I'll work 'em and then send 'em back without contaminating 'em with ideas about freedom.

      1. MichelesPantalones

        No guarantee of that, since (1) we buy a whole LOTTA shit from China that probably is contaminated and (2) thanks to the Republicans, we no longer fund those annoying food inspection jerks who want to complain about the contamination in our blood thinners.

        Edit: and food.

  11. Hera Sent Me

    The "Statue of Freedom" atop the Capitol dome was forged using slave labor in the 1860's. The statue honoring MLK was carved using slave labor in the 2010's.

    The more things change, the more they stay insane.

    1. Dashboard_Jesus

      srsly, after reading this it made even ME weep…WTF were these idiots thinking, that it was OK to use Chinese slave labor or that no one would find out about it…freakin' morons, I think they should tear the damn thing down and rebuild with ONLY US laborers, at TWICE the prevailing wage!

  12. Negropolis

    I have to say that after I heard Lei Yixin comment on the statue when asked about it, I cringed a little, because if King had ever gotten to China, he'd have probably been even less kind to that government. There are all kinds of irony in this, and they certainly weren't missed on me. The problem in raising money for the memorial allowed for all kinds of ethical and ideological compromises I could have done without to put it nicely. Actually, it's all kind of embarrassing. Courtisans (black, white or otherwise) aren't usually the most trustworthy people, unfortunately.

  13. Come here a minute

    The Capitol was built by African-American labor! Isn't that good enough for you people?

    1. Barb

      I noticed that the same wanker troll likes to follow us both. I think it's his piss pot way of leaving his mark on us with his shittified avatar. I'll look at your profile and maybe some of the good people here will do the same and then you don't have to see his name for a while.

    2. Mahousu

      To downfist you if you post on some other forum? There are some wingnut forums that use IntenseDebate, I think.

    3. Rotundo_

      My theory is that they believe it is supposed to intimidate us "You are being WATCHED!!11ONE!!" and that we are supposed to be concerned that we are being monitored by the Breitbart Masterbation Rapid Response Team. I really don't know the particulars. I feel sorry for them in a way, since it really screams of someone so frustrated and insecure that they do this sort of crap instead of having a real life. If you're listening Spanky2B, go out, get some fresh air, get out of the basement and enjoy something real, okay?

  14. proudgrampa

    That damn thing doesn't even LOOK like Dr. King. It's a shame that this is the memorial he's going to end up with. It SUCKS.

    1. ttommyunger

      I was going to say the same thing. King had a distinct look, this abortion looks like your generic slightly overweight middle-aged black man. What a fucking embarrassment for us and his memory. I'm not even black and I'm pissed about it.

    2. LetUsBray

      My opinion is that it looks cold and passionless, as if it were the work of a proficient sculptor with no emotional investment in or connection with the subject. Now why would that be?

  15. soojank

    "While often overshadowed by his civil rights legacy, King was an outspoken defender of labor rights and was supporting striking sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee when he was assassinated. "

    But wasn't MLK a Republican? You know the party of unions = thugs & the source of all our problem? Am I the only one who's seen wingnuts try to claim this?

    1. Doktor Zoom

      Hey, did you know that Robert Byrd was in the KKK? And the Voting Rights act was passed by Republicans but opposed by Democrats? (And absolutely nothing changed in either party after 1964?)

    Update: 8:15 p.m. (CST)
    My Go Bag is done and Mr. Giggles is ready in the Pet Taxi stationed by the door. So far, nothing yet, not even any rain, but I'm prepared to vacate within 5 minutes.
    Nobody in my neighborhood is taking this threat serious.
    I wish them luck when all hell breaks lose.

    1. SayItWithWookies

      Where are you? I'm guessing that it's coastal NC — anyway, they're saying the storm surge in Hampton Roads is going to be up to 8 feet and that's after Irene has crossed over Hatteras and weakened, so they ought to be taking this serious.

      1. DerrickWildcat

        No, I'm in Eastern Nebraska. I'm going to get my wet weather gear on and take a peek outside in a few. I've been listening to the radio and haven't heard anything about an evacuation order yet. We still have power, but that could go anytime.

        1. fuflans

          well you certainly won my heart this weekend. but that could change if you don't take care of mr. giggles.

  17. user-of-owls

    Eventually it will come to pass that these were no ordinary Chinese slave laborers, but particularly nettlesome Chinese slave laborers.

    In other words, Uigur-na find out they were obstreperous ethnic minorities, want tibet?

            Some wiseacres in the press corps have been suggesting that someun shoulda ask Rick Perry whar he stands on the dang Chinee. No me, if'n I got to ask the Govnar a question, it'd be something like, "Mr. Perry, wit alla da damned dry air we been a-having, well, sir, I just wanna know how's your Har-bin?

          3. not that Dewey

            I hear the Austin beat reporter for the local rag is a real lush. He totally would have asked the Governor that question today if he didn't Taiwan on last night.

          4. user-of-owls

            Ah, took me a sec cuz we jumped the gun and moved yesterday. Lots of re-learning will have to be done, but as of yet, no blood on the floor. Oh, and DAY 28, thank you very much!

            Thanks for keeping track of me, Dew…means a lot. How are YOU doing?

      1. Doktor Zoom

        That's mighty Forward of you.

        It's a fairly beautiful monument. On a scale of One (Ugly) to Five (Stunning), I'd rate it Three (Gorgeous). Damn!

        1. user-of-owls

          You guys seem to think this is all just for PLA, but if this results in a trade dispute between the US and China, the Tao is gonna take another beating when the markets open tomorrow.

  18. x111e7thst

    This proves that black people are always oppressing themselves and each other and that only Repugnicans and Corporations are true civil rights heroes.

  19. johnnyzhivago

    No snark, if you want to see the true monument of Chinese slave labor, it's in California, the original Southern Pacific Donner Pass crossing – literally clawed out of solid granite by Chinese laborers using hammers and chisels. They used some "dyn-o-mite" but probably blew up more Chinese than inches of granite with it.

    At one point someone brought in a newfangled "drill" to do the work. Who the hell needs a damn drill when you have a zillion Chinamen!!!!

    Today most of it is the busy Union Pacific mainline although newer sections were built to lower the grade in some places. You can even ride Amtrak over it until President Santorum abolishes passenger trains.

    Your Chinese Slave Labor/Railroad History Lesson of the Day…

    1. LetUsBray

      I once read that a practice (I hope it wasn't common but fear it was) with Chinese railroad laborers in the 19th century western US was to assemble them on payday and tell them they'd be paid after they'd finished digging a big hole. Then, when they'd finished digging the hole, they'd be shot and buried in it. Because in those days, we trusted corporations to regulate themselves.

      1. BerkeleyBear

        Not all that common – too much work to be done. But they did get the shaft in more ways than one.

    2. zhubajie

      When slavery was abolished in the British Empire, it was replaced by contract labor from India and China. Hence east Indians and Chinese in unlikely seeming places like Cuba and Guyana.

    3. sezme

      Well, there is at least a commemorative memorial to the Chinese labourers who built the Canadian railway. You can see it in Toronto and read about it here.

  20. WhatTheHeck

    Problem would have been solved by having Rae Dawn Chong design and build it.
    Win-win for oppressed parties involved.

  21. Mahousu

    I don't see the problem. The Chinese laborers weren't receiving "starvation wages." They were receiving no wages at all!

  22. Dudleydidwrong

    Let's see:
    American sculptor screwed;
    American stone masons screwed,
    American union labor screwed…
    I hope that all the proud Republicans come to the celebration because it sure looks like one of the projects that would make them proud. Did the rock come from China?

      1. Dashboard_Jesus

        srsly, they couldn't even get the fucking granite from the US, WTF? as a white Irish Catholic Midwesterner who actually marched in the 60s for civil rights (didn't get to be with Dr. King) I can hardly suppress my anger/ astonishment that these assholes *outsourced* this fucking monument to Chines slave labor…it just hurts my head on so many levels…

  23. Warpde

    "workers imported from China working for nothing but “national pride.”"

    There is so much wrong with that statement even a bottle of Jack won't help to put it in perspective.
    Now excuse me while I put my statement to the test.

  24. Schmegeg

    I have a dream that sons of slaves and sons of slaveholders will lounge on the porch while Mexicans cut the grass and Chinese sculpt monuments for free.

  25. ttommyunger

    Sooooo, let me get this straight: Chinese laborers were exploited to construct a monument to a man who devoted his life to liberating oppressed minorities, right? Well, SOMEBODY got $4.5 Million, who would that be? The Koch Brothers, no doubt.

  26. subsum

    The Teabagger God won't allow statues of black people being erected anywhere near Ayn Rand's chosen spawning site for her second coming in 2012. I don't know if that's a fact but that's what I believe and that's what I'm going with.

  27. sati_demise

    oh, so NOW we know what caused that earthquake.

    Martin Luther King spinning in his grave.
    so fucked we cant even build a freakin' sculpture in this US of A
    damn it all

  28. dogscantlookup

    Little white slaves, and little black slaves, and little yellow slaves, and little red slaves, and little brown slaves working all together, for the millionaires and the billionaires,
    I have a dream today!

  29. fuflans

    also today this from the west coast:

    Owner put naked yogurt-store employee inside box, D.A. says

  30. not that Dewey

    Like the old saying goes: given enough time and enough slaves, we can accomplish anything.

  31. slowhansolo

    I'll save you the trouble with Krauthammer this week: Impressive effect, but the selection of quotes is much too globalist. King was all about AMERICA, dammit.

    You're welcome.

    1. Doktor Zoom

      Yeah, because if there's one thing King was all about, it was a narrow focus on American concerns. That's why he said "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere, but only within the borders of the United States. The rest of the world can suck it. USA! USA! USA!"

      Oh, and the troops. He ALWAYS supported the troops.

      1. RadioIrene

        One step further Dok, MLK also pointed out it was the poor who bore the disproportionate burden of one of our long national nightmares. Not unlike the Civil War as well. Somehow, for a long time now, the job creators get the poor to do their bidding.

    2. Rotundo_

      If Kraphammer finds it in anyway acceptable it must be pretty sad. Unless it pissed him off to his core, I would say it missed the mark by a quite a bit. King personified everything Chuckles and those of his mindset hate.

  32. LetUsBray

    I don't want to say, flat-out, a Chinese sculptor can't compose a monument to Dr. King. And I'll admit to not having been up on how Lei was selected. I'll further stipulate to being myself whiter than Willard Romney's butt, so goodness knows I'm not the go-to expert on how anyone "should" feel about this. But the choice seems weird, and the result of the work appears to reflect that weirdness.

    I will say, as an American, it makes me proud when I see Dr. King honored abroad: Rome has a Martin Luther King Square, and Jesolo, near Venice, has a main drag named for Dr. King.

    But this project just seems ill-conceived and carried out.

  33. weejee

  34. HelmutNewton

    Apparently, the sculptor is known for his many statues of Mao. And the MLK statue does look kinda…Mao-esque. Jeez, we really can't do anything right anymore…

      1. SaintRond

        Why do they have to go all over the world looking for people to treat like shit when there are real Americans they can treat like shit right over here?

  35. GregComlish

    When confronted by the union over this fact, the foundation seemed to cynically use King’s principles as a shield, saying, “We strongly believe that we should not exclude anyone from working on this project simply because of their religious beliefs, social background or country of origin.”

    Not going to work. Everybody knows that in America's hierarchy of victimization, blacks are at the top and Asians are virtually at the bottom exceeding only rich white men.

  36. Rotundo_

    The entire concept of a Martin Luther King memorial strikes me as strange: I really don't think he was doing what he did for self agrandizing reasons, I think he would look at this and ask where the names of the others who gave their lives to the cause of human rights were. I understand the reasoning behind a memorial, but the concept and delivery don't speak to me about the man and his significance so much as how half assed our recognition of him is. Then again, what could anyone build that would really do justice to MLK and his vision?

    1. Dudleydidwrong

      Monuments that "really do justice" to the subject seem to be hard to come by, especially in DC. Lincoln is fairly memorialized. The Vietnam memorial seems to be a sound presentation of what needs to be symbolized from that era. What else? Maybe FDR, but only maybe.

      The World War II memorial, as someone posted earlier, is a travesty, ironically born more of 1930s Berlin than of late 20th century America. Most of the mounted warriors adorning our traffic circles are silly remnants of little that needs to be remembered. And is the George Washington phallic symbol the way to remember that man? I doubt it.

      I guess we should expect King to have some sort of monument, but this one fits into the pattern of "Well, we did something. There. Now forget the guy…" Commitment to what he worked (and died) for is the greatest memorial, and the Rethugs seem intent on wiping that from the country.

      Snark on again.

        Funny you mention the Vietnam Memorial. Remember how they criticized Maya Lin's design? "A gash" or "there's no flag or statue" or whatever. They had to put the Three Soldiers at the site to appease the critics. And, of course, the reflective stone wall set into the ground is is one of the great architectural monuments anywhere. So we'll see where this MLK design goes.
        I agree with your other assessments (wtf with that WWII POS?) and would add the Jefferson as not so bad. Especially the inscriptions on the walls. You'd think the teabaggers would read those words.

    I looked up “outsourcing jokes” on Google, but there really were none.

    Is it too late to turn the clock back to “Ten Rules for Dating my Daughter” jokes?
