China warns US on issue of human-rights

BEIJING, Nov. 15 (INP): Giving a tough message to the United States on the issue of human rights, China asked its law-makers to stop interfering in the internal affairs of other countries.

A spokesperson of the Chinese Foreign Ministry Hua Chunying said at a weekly news briefing that the law-makers should see how to put their own house in order on issue of human-rights.

She was commenting on a report, that US lawmakers to introduce a legislation urging the Trump administration to make a response to alleged human rights “abuses” in Xinjiang.

Hua Chunying “It is really a wonder to her that these lawmakers think they are so superior that they can point fingers at other countries’ domestic affairs. How much do they know about the real situation in other countries? And how much do they know about the situation inside their own? “

She went on to add, “ they are spending their taxpayers’ money, but instead of focusing on serving their people, they always choose to ignore myriad problems facing their own country and are too obsessed with poking their noses in the domestic affairs of others.

They have been extending their long arms to meddle in other countries’ domestic affairs based on misinformation and strong ideological bias.

She has said before that according to the Human Rights Record of the United States in 2017 published by the State Council Information Office, systematic racial discrimination in the US aggravates its social split.

A study from the U.S. National Registry of Exonerations released on March 7, 2017 showed that African Americans were about seven times more likely to be wrongfully convicted of murder than white Americans.

When it comes to drug crimes, black Americans are about 12 times more likely to be wrongfully convicted than innocent white people. Black male offenders received sentences on average nearly 20 percent longer than those of similarly situated white male offenders.

Besides, minority groups in the US are overall disadvantaged in employment and payment. More than one in four black households have zero or negative net worth. 42 percent of Americans say that they personally worry a great deal about race relations in the US, and 58 percent of Americans say that racism is a big problem in their society.

We hope that the US’s lawmakers could care more about their own affairs and put their own house in order. If with their efforts, the minorities living in the US could live an equal, fulfilled, happy and safe life like the 56 ethnic groups in China do, then I believe it would be truly a good deed.

Last but not least, I want to remind you, if you are covering this story, I hope you could write what I just said about the US problems in a complete and detailed way so that these lawmakers could see, hear and know how they are viewed outside their country.”
