Government Minister Patrick Todd and students of Westbury School accept gifts from Ambassador Qiang Wei: Footballs made in China's Laogai slave camps.

The lead in the Barbados Advocate story China’s Gift to Barbados is “Christmas came early for students of Westbury Primary and Wilkie Cumberbatch Primary yesterday morning, when they received gifts of basketballs, footballs, volleyballs and pencil cases compliments The People’s Republic of China in a ceremony at Westbury school.”

The reference to Christmas is particularly relevant considering that one of the products of China’s vast slave camp system for Christians and other politically unreliable people is… Footballs!

Pastor Cai Zhuohua - 3 years in a slave labour camp for possessing bibles.Meet Pastor Cai Zhuohua, who spent the last three years in a slave labour camp making official footballs for the 2008 Olympics. His crime? Unauthorized possession of bibles.

It is outrageous that of this country named Barbados continues to fawn over the Chinese Communists for a few trinkets here and there. Basketballs. Computers. Uniforms for our Coast Guard. Footballs.

Here’s what I would ask of you: Every time you see your children playing with Chinese-supplied sports equipment, I want you to think about how ironic it is that we, as the descendants of slaves, so easily and warmly accept gifts from the country that still maintains the world’s largest slave camp system.
