China is concerned about the human rights situation in the US
The China Association for human rights studies published an article that analyzes the problem of racism and racial discrimination in the United States.
Race in the United States continues to be an important social category, analysts write. The article argues that the problem of American racial discrimination is difficult to solve because it is deeply rooted in the history and realities of the United States.
This is a structural obstacle to the equal enjoyment of rights and minority status, and it is this that is the root cause of the rupture of American society.
Since 2016, the US has seen a revival of the concept of white supremacy. At the same time, the country positions itself as a “global defender of human rights”, but does not have the intention and ability to solve the problem of serious racial discrimination in its own country. The existing institutional defects in the USA are exposed, the hypocritical character of “human rights in the American way”is emphasized.
The current state of racial relations in the United States depends directly on the domestic political structure, historical traditions and ideology. Without reforms in these areas, the vicious circle of racism and racial discrimination cannot be broken, nor can human rights actually be fully protected and ensured, the article concludes.
