While China is no model human rights champion, America is guilty of far worse crimes as well as all of the above abuses, yet rarely do major media reports reveal them.
On March 13, two days after the State Department's report, China's Information Office of the State Council published its own comprehensive report, titled: "The Human Rights Record of the United States in 2009," correctly saying America:
Countering official American mythology, its Information Office of the State Council presented an accurate account of what US propaganda suppresses, revealing some of what's known but publicly concealed about:
-- the world's most lawless state;
-- a society in social crisis;
-- a domestic armed camp under police state laws that suppress human rights and civil liberties, criminalize dissent, allow illegal spying, control information, persecute political prisoners for political advantage and deny them due process and judicial fairness;
-- torture as official US policy at home and abroad;
-- the operator of the world's largest global gulag;
-- systematic targeted killings;
-- permanent wars for unchallengeable dominance:

What really irritates me is that millions of Americans will learn about our own human rights abuses then say; that's horrible, i didn't know we did that, we aren't doing that, or i knew it*with a sense of pride*. Then we just go back to work and continue with our everyday lives and suppress that information to the back of our minds and move on.

This illustrates a rather sad fact that bears emphasis...
That China, being the holder of 1.3 trillion in us dollars as bank surplus and being the largest holder of US government bonds,....
That China can AFFORD to tell the truth about the United States.

I had to LOL... considering the coments about the real America and Native Americans. Talk about media twist. I guess China is more forthcoming about Tibet than many in the USA (I hesitate to call them Americans since that implies from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego) are about the Native / Indigenous Americans, right?
China's is accurate and revealing. It could have included more, but presents a disturbing account of the real America, not the fictional one portrayed daily on TV screens, films, major publication accounts, what's taught in schools or preached in houses of worship - a sanitized version of what growing millions experience daily and what Blacks, the poor, Muslims, Latino immigrants, and Native Americans have known all their lives as well as America's global victims.
