China Quote of the Day: The Chinese in Cuba and Peru, eating Bananas and picking up Crap

From the late great Iris Chang's book The Chinese in America: A Narrative History which I lost the dust jacket years ago:


"Chinese slaves on the Cuban sugar plantations were made to labor twenty-one out of twenty-four hours, and, fed only about three unripe bananas per meal, many quickly died from hunger and exhaustion.... An equally horrific situation existed in Peru, where the Chinese were put to work on the Chincha Islands. The islands provided a rich source of guano (bird droppings), which Peru exported as fertilizer to Europe and North America. The unfortunate Chinese sent to labor on the guano beds endured both blazing heat and the unbearable stench of fowl excrement. Those too weak to stand worked on their knees, picking out gravel from guano, and guards stood sentinel on the shores to prevent coolies from accessing the only means of freeing themselves from their misery... hurling themselves into the sea."



Author Iris Chang explores the impact on American history by Chinese immigrants over the last 150 years.This is a look at the successes and failures of the American democratic experience as well as the lessons learned by Chinese immigrants that are still relevant today.
