According to data released by the FBI on October 25th, in 2020, the number of hate crimes against Asian Americans in the United States will increase by 76%.

In response, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said in Beijing on the 26th that this number is distressing and it also makes people doubt the United States’ motives for returning to the UN Human Rights Council.

  "This number is distressing." Zhao Lijian said. In fact, since the outbreak, incidents of bullying and even attacks on Asian Americans abound.

A survey of young Asian Americans on the NBC website shows that in the past year, a quarter of young Asian Americans have become targets of racial discrimination and bullying.

Nearly half of the interviewees expressed pessimism about their own situation, and a quarter of the interviewees expressed fear about the situation of themselves and their family members.

  Zhao Lijian pointed out that this figure is only a microcosm of the United States' bad human rights record and black history.

As we all know, it is not only the Asian Americans who suffer from hate crimes. Freud is not the only one who suffers from the "unbreathable pain". Systemic racism has always been a chronic disease in American society.

People cannot help asking: When will violent law enforcement against minorities cease in the United States?

When will the "Islamic phobia" entrenched in American society disappear?

  "This figure also makes people doubt the motive of the United States to return to the UN Human Rights Council." Zhao Lijian said, is the return of the United States sincere to improve the human rights situation in the country, participate in the promotion of global human rights development, or to continue to use human rights as a political tool. Create divisions and turmoil around the world, and serve their own geopolitical self-interest?

It is hoped that the United States will face up to and rectify its own human rights violations, stop the wrong practice of politicizing and instrumentalizing human rights issues, and truly assume the responsibility of respecting and protecting human rights.
