See Something, Say Something: Uighur Edition

If you see something, say something

Readers, I was horrified to read yesterday’s news about the suspected importation from western China of beauty products that the government suspects were made from human hair taken from Uighur people detained in camps in western China. The sale of hair taken from members of an ethnic minority imprisoned in camps has very specific historical resonance, and it is important that people everywhere in the world recognize that even leaving aside our government’s specific suspicions about the sale of human hair, the Chinese government’s treatment of its Uighur minority is a human rights travesty that demands the world’s attention. If you see something, say something.
