US Amti-Intellectualism and the “Myth” of Abraham Lincoln’s Anti-Racism! (1.5.2023)
“I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favour of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races, [applause]—that I am not nor ever have been in favour of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will for ever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality.” Abraham Lincoln
China: UK has No sovereignty, Jurisdiction or Right of “supervision” Over Hong Kong! (27.4.2023)
Xinjiang enjoys economic development, social stability, religious harmony and cultural prosperity and people there lead a happy life, she said. “These are facts for all to see, yet the UK side chooses to be oblivious to this and has deliberately smeared and slandered China. The status quo of the Taiwan Strait is that both sides of the Strait belong to one and the same China.”
She pointed out that the biggest threat to peace in the Taiwan Strait comes from the “Taiwan independence” separatist activities and the US connivance at and support for them. If the UK side wants sustained peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait, it needs to strictly abide by the one-China principle and stand firmly against the “Taiwan independence” separatist activities.
“I want to reiterate that the Taiwan question and issues concerning Hong Kong and Xinjiang are purely China’s internal affairs which brook no external interference. We urge the UK to be prudent in its words and actions, stop making groundless accusations against China and interfering in China’s internal affairs, and do more things that are conducive to the development of China-UK relations and world peace and stability,” she said.
China: Manor-Turned Museum Tells Changes of Life in Tibet! (29.3.2023)
Tibet is the first provincial-level region in China to provide 15 years of publicly funded education, from kindergarten all the way up to senior high school. By contrast, there was not a single proper school, and the illiteracy rate among young people exceeded 95 percent in old Tibet.
The changes in Tibet are a vivid epitome of China’s reform and development. Chinese modernization is the only correct choice for building a strong country and advancing national rejuvenation, said Yan Jinhai, head of the regional government, in a speech marking the historical movement that ended serfdom in Tibet 64 years ago.
In the past 10 years, Yan said, Tibet has achieved high-quality development, maintained rapid economic growth, and heavily invested in education, medical care, culture, housing, employment, and social security. Tibet has shaken off absolute poverty and kept on pace with the whole country in building a moderately prosperous society in all respects.

Sneaky Chinese Hijack UN ‘Ukraine’ Debate to ‘Whinge’ About Racism! (15.3.2023)
The crisis has been dragging on for over a year. The prospects of a protracted and expanding conflict are deeply worrying. Since day one, China has been emphasizing that dialogue and negotiation are the only feasible way to resolve the crisis, he said.
The international community should stay on the right course of promoting peace talks and supporting Russia and Ukraine in resuming dialogue without any precondition as soon as possible, so as to achieve de-escalation and help the parties swiftly open the door to a political settlement and jointly maintain peace in Europe, he said.
Not long ago, China issued a paper on its position on the political settlement of the Ukraine crisis that contains 12 propositions. Building on that, China is ready to continue playing a constructive role in pushing for a political solution to the Ukraine crisis, he said.
