She Worked In A Factory In Bangladesh To Make This Story. Her Supervisor Was 9 Years Old.

We eliminated most child labor in the United States in the '30s, but in other parts of the world, this is the norm — or at least acceptable. Is it any wonder we lose factories and production every year to countries like this? Here's a bright idea: Let's make it illegal for any U.S. company to use a contractor or supplier who engages in this kind of thing. And then let's enforce it.

Vauhxx Booker, a civil rights activist from Bloomington, Indiana, claims that a group of white men threatened to lynch him during an altercation on July 4 near Lake Monroe, but he was saved by onlookers who intervened.

Video taken during the incident shows he was held down by a group of men who pinned him to a tree in a wooded area. Booker says that while he was being held down, the men threatened to break his arms, repeatedly said "get a noose," and told his friends to leave the area.

The men later let him go after being confronted by onlookers who gathered at the scene.

The incident began, according to Booker, when he and his friends were making their way to the lake to see the lunar eclipse when a white man on an ATV told them they were trespassing. When Booker and his friends continued to walk to the lake, the man on the ATV and his friends allegedly shouted "white power" at them, which is when things turned violent.
