    U.S. commission says China possibly committed 'genocide' against Xinjiang Muslims

    The Congressional-Executive Commission on China (CECC) said new evidence had emerged in the past year that “crimes against humanity - and possibly genocide - are occurring” in Xinjiang. It also accused China of harassing Uighurs in the United States.

    China has been widely condemned for setting up complexes in Xinjiang that it describes as “vocational training centers” to stamp out extremism and give people new skills and which others have called concentration camps.

    The United Nations says at least 1 million Uighurs and other Muslims have been detained in Xinjiang. Faith leaders, activist groups and others have said crimes against humanity, including genocide, are taking place there.

    "China says its aim is to tackle poverty and religious extremism in Xinjiang. But the US has likened the centres to concentration camps."

    In addition to the heavy restrictions it places on foreign journalists trying to report the truth about its far western region of Xinjiang, China has a new tactic: labelling independent coverage as "fake news".

    At night, while travelling for hours along Xinjiang's desert highways, the unmarked cars that had been following us from the moment we arrived would tailgate us at speed, driving dangerously close with their headlights on full beam.

    Their occupants - who never identified themselves - forced us to leave one city by chasing us out of restaurants and shops, ordering the owners not to serve us.

    And Pompusseo has declared Cubs a state sponsor of terrorism ( you can actually smell the hypocrisy ) I think it’s called diplomatic slash and burn and there will be more of it before the 20th.

    Old news is what it is. We've known that the Chinese government is genocidal for... well, frankly, for decades. It's one of the few things Trump is not wildly wrong on. He may also be correct about the colour of the sky and the number of fingers on a human hand, but none of those murder Uyghurs, Tibetans and Hong Kongeans by the thousands.

    Exactly, Let us not forget China's extreme racial prejudice against the Tibetans.

    Chinese Racism and Racist Policy in Tibet

    Racism: China's Secret Scourge
    ICT Report Refutes Beijing's Denial of Racism in China
    Washington, D. C. - International Campaign for Tibet (ICT) will release a report at the UN World Conference Against Racism (WCAR) documenting the origin and nature of racism against Tibetans and how the Chinese government perpetuates racist attitudes and policies.

    @duchess64
    Yes, dg, I see where you come from, Duchess64 is Chinese so she must be racist.

    The theory fits, that's for sure.
