    Biden should never have committed to picking a woman as his running mate so early on. For one thing, it framed the entire selection as finding someone to "balance" the ticket against his own very...

    Of course Castro's government has its faults, but it's interesting that "human rights" only ever gets brought up when talking about enemies of the United States. And there's been ZERO discussion as...

    Cuba has a health care system that is the envy of the world and achieves better outcomes than the US despite a tiny fraction of the resources, so don't count on them dying out anytime soon.

    It goes without saying that Zenz's conclusions are wrong, this graph comes from his own paper:

    But of course the actual...

    You were drawing parallels between an explicit policy whose effects have been well-documented, and a series of outlandish accusations based on blurry satellite images. The point is that most people...

    You just whatabouted yourself there...

    In all seriousness, if your only reference point for race relations is how minorities are treated in America, then of course everything is going to look like...

    Well read through the thread if you don't believe me. I'm happy to get the discussion back on track.



    Except that isn't happening, nor is it even the accusation. Unlike the USSR, China has...

    The legacy of slavery impacts everyone here, whether we choose to recognize that or not. Now of course there may be a handful of non-whites who profited from slavery and some whites who were harmed...

    China has controlled these areas for almost 70 years now, you would think that if the plan was to exterminate them it would have happened by now.

    Wholesale depopulation of an entire continent and complete replacement by outside settlers has only happened once in human history, as far as I'm aware, twice if you want to count Australia as its...

    Well it would be pretty odd to cast yourself as some type of human rights crusader if you live in a country built on stolen land and slave labor and pretend like that's all just "in the past" while...

    Criticize China all you like, but just recognize that when you do so it's largely just regurgitating propaganda spun by the Trump administration to deflect from its own failings. I just have a hard...

    Do you really think that censorship has made people completely unaware of an event that happened only 30 years ago? If people want to remember an event, they will find a way regardless of what the...

    You're projecting a bit here, whitewashing history isn't really a thing in China and if anything, writers tend to over-emphasize the negative parts. The official propaganda is largely seen as...

    It's not Trump's influence that breaking up our alliances, it's the fact that all of America's allies, particularly in Asia, are in reality client states with little in the way of foreign policy...

    China does only want peace, not because of any inherent peace-loving nature, but because its military sucks and the leaders have no illusions about its strength. Even an invasion of a much smaller...

    Which countries has China bombed? Who have they enslaved? What governments have they overthrown because their people absolutely HAD to have bananas?
