China News Service, Beijing, October 8 (Reporter Huang Yuqin) Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said at a regular press conference on the 8th that if the United States really cares about human rights and is committed to achieving racial equality, it should correct its own human rights abuses and eliminate Rather than allowing extreme ideologies such as white supremacy and hatred of minorities to lead to new tragedies, racial discrimination is becoming more and more intense in the country.

  A reporter asked questions. Recently, under the joint initiative of China and African countries, 78 countries have spoken in the general debate of the Third Committee of the 76th UN General Assembly, calling for speeding up the implementation of the Durban Declaration and Program of Action to combat all forms of racism, Racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance.

What is China's comment?

  Zhao Lijian said that this year marks the 20th anniversary of the adoption of the Durban Declaration and Program of Action.

Due to the absence and lagging of a few countries such as the United States, the international community still has a long way to go to combat racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance.

  He pointed out that racism and white supremacy are still spreading in the United States, which believes in the so-called "all men are created equal."

The new crown pneumonia epidemic has further highlighted the systemic racial discrimination against minorities such as African Americans, Hispanics, and Asian Americans in the United States.

Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in the United States, said frankly that the inequality of health among different ethnic groups is a failure of the entire American society.

In addition, police violence and hate crimes against ethnic minorities in the United States have been repeatedly banned, and the social inequality faced by vulnerable groups such as women, children, and the elderly is deeply rooted.

This once again completely tore off the disguise of the so-called "equality and freedom" in the United States.

  Zhao Lijian emphasized that a few countries such as the United States have long suffered from systemic racial discrimination, but they still resisted and missed the commemorative meeting for the 20th anniversary of the adoption of the Durban Declaration and Program of Action.

This is irresponsible behavior.

If the United States really cares about human rights and is committed to achieving racial equality, it should correct its own human rights abuses and eliminate the growing racial discrimination in the country, instead of allowing extreme ideas such as white supremacy and hatred of minorities to cause new tragedies.
