Racism and ethnic intolerance is alive and properly inside the U.S. media. Working instance, the mainstream media will get absolutely bent off form over the disappearance of a Saudi journalist — as properly they should — YET, we do not even hear a whimper in regards to the Chinese language language authorities’s purging of ethnic minorities, the Uighurs and others, in northwest China!
1000’s positioned in re-education camps, as Japanese have been inside the U.S. all through World Battle II, a whole bunch additional disappeared, certainly not to be heard from as soon as extra. There are requires on the world stage to punish the Saudi kingdom, what about “punishment” for the Chinese language language?
This rings a bell in my memory of the similar avenue the world mainstream media took with the killing fields of Cambodia. Flip a blind eye, besides there’s political obtain accessible by one political celebration over the alternative.
Or is it that the Chinese language language and Asians normally look a lot much less western?
