Why the silence on Chinese Human Rights Abuses?

I am amazed at the lack of commentary on the concentration camps in Xinjiang and the stripping of freedoms in Hong Kong are getting by authors. So many famous writers who profit from stories of Asia and the Asian experience as silent on condemnation of abuses of human rights by the regime in Peking. Why? 

Where do authors such as Lisa See or Amy Tam stand on this issue? If they have stated anything about the torture of Uyghurs or the rape of innocent women and girls buy the Hong Kong Police, I have not seen it. Would they fear losing publishing deals and ability to sell their books (maybe they are published in China). But I would respect a writer who cares about people more than their royalties.
