U.S. Is Not Qualified To Talk About Human Rights

Racist crimes are being committed one after another in the US.

As is well known, American citizens are waging mass protests across the country, enraged by a white policeman’s murder of a black man on May 25.

Exasperated by it, the authorities are feigning ignorance as if the case is not an “institutional result”, staging a farce of dismissing and arresting those responsible for it.

But, white policemen’s barbaric racist atrocities continue unabated in the US.

A few days ago, a protestor was shot dead by a policeman in Illinois and a video showing black women wounded by repressive policemen’s baton gun-firing in a protest was made public.

Moreover, a 75-year-old man fell bleeding by police violence during a public protest in Buffalo of New York and another black man was murdered by a white policeman in Atlanta of Georgia, thus adding fuel to the burning resentment of demonstrators.

Many of foreign media are now expressing serious concern over the racial discrimination in the US and lots of people in Europe, Africa and other parts of the world are turning out in solidarity demonstrations to condemn the extreme human rights abuses in the US despite the spread of the worldwide epidemic.

On June 8, the Namibian President criticized the racial discrimination against the black in the US, saying that racism is like a cancer all the world people should combat.

The South African paper Pretoria News said that 99 percent of policemen who had murdered African-Americans went scot-free. It referred to the tragedy of the US society that blood-thirsty criminals hunting black men like animals remain unpunished in the police. It added that the white policeman who cruelly strangled the black man had been accused of 18 cases involving his brutal acts but has gone with impunity up to now and three other accomplices in the killing of the black man are all criminals who had been involved in several cases of attempted killings of and violence against the black over the past ten-odd years.

The world media are commenting that the main factor of unabated murder of the black by policemen in the US lies in its legal system overlooking the crimes of the police, noting that it is the weak point of its legal system that it cannot take due measures though policemen in many states and regions impudently make no report about their crimes.

A spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China, commenting on the situation of the American-style democracy where racist crimes are being committed openly under the patronage of the government, termed extreme racism against the descendants of ethnic minorities the chronic evil practice in the US society. The spokesperson said that the lives of the black matter and their rights should be defended.

Recalling that the US liked giving a “steer” and faulting the human rights situation of other countries whenever public unrest broke out there over the past decades, the Russian Foreign Ministry noted that it would be the wisest for Washington not to forget that “steer” but to put it into practice.

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights in a statement urged the US to put an end to the chronic and organized racism that dims the future of its society.

The racist acts rampant in the US and worldwide criticism of it shed light on the true nature of the US, the worst human rights tundra in the world.

It is the height of double-standards and intolerable mockery of international justice that such a country finds fault with the human rights situation in other countries.
