China Is Collecting DNA From Tens of Millions of Men and Boys, Using U.S. Equipment reTiredEngr Junior Member Joined: Aug 24, 2017 Messages: 1,376 Likes Received: 1,869 Jun 17, 2020 #1 Big brother is here, or is it there? A couple of years ago, I was considering doing a DNA test as part of my genealogy research. I didn't do it because of privacy concerns. "Jiang Haolin, 31, gave a blood sample, too. He had no choice. The authorities told Mr. Jiang, a computer engineer from a rural county in northern China, that “if blood wasn’t collected, we would be listed as a ‘black household,’” he said last year, and it would deprive him and his family of benefits like the right to travel and go to a hospital." Sounds so similar to our current situation. "If you don't support BLM, you will be on our blacklist". (Am I allowed to use "blacklist"?) https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/17/world/asia/China-DNA-surveillance.html Last edited: Jun 17, 2020 SoCalN8tiv and SCBIGTIME like this.
