BEIJING (AP) -- Racial discrimination and police abuses are rife in the United States, China's Cabinet said Friday, in a report intended as a counterpoint to U.S. criticism of Beijing's own human rights record.
The report issued by the State Council Information Office cited the killing of black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and other cases in which African-Americans were shot and killed by white police officers....

If a Michael Brown-like incident happened in a Chinese city it probably wouldn't even make the paper.

'Cause there's no more diverse a nation than China.

Coming from a culture where almost all Chinese are Han, this is a big giggle.

Isn’t this the same China that criticized the United States over it’s supposed lack of gun control laws in the wake of the Sandy Hook tragedy in December 2012, only to have at about the same time a crazed nut in their country commit a mass stabbing at a school that resulted in more than 20 seriously injured?

And the Chinese Han are VERY prejudiced against other Chinese ethnicities. My friends in China often took me to the markets to try out my haggling skills. They made it very clearly known that there was usually a pricing structure for customers... locals got the best prices, then Han Chinese, then Anglos, then non-Han Chinese, then blacks, then Japanese.
But US racism is somehow the worst... apparently because we are the only ones who will beat ourselves up over it.

Send Chicago or Baltimore to China, see how they handle it.
