    Black lives matter!!! The U.S. shouldn't infringe people's rights to protest. How could you send troops on the streets to oppress your own people??? American democracy is so overrated and might be just a propaganda.

    We can find all the good and bad side of the US protestors in weibo and douyin, but news is always about bad news right?

    Chinese translated “Black lives matter” to “黑命贵”, which really means “black lives are expensive” and gives it a very negative undertone. Also, most Chinese people are lead to believe black people are violent and bad by the Chinese government.

    I think india did the right thing boycotting chinese goods, not because it will effect chinese economy but because indians wouldn't protest like americans, and now American cases are skyrocketing

    The problem is not that they show the most terrible events that happened in the US recently but that those things even happened. Gosh, love to live in Europe.

    When it comes to the George Floyd riots the US media did the exact same as the China media. 
    Peaceful protests don't get viewers violence does. We are really no different than China when it comes to propaganda.

    Stop acting like Europe wasn't laughing at US now. All the American fought Europe for our own independence. Now most European countries somehow became the way better place to live in.

    At the end of the day more things went wrong with US's covid response than China's covid response

    In other words the sky is blue and China is doing what it’s been doing for the last 70 years.

    But on the other hand for WSJ to say this it sounds like “how dare you to use our total failure to push your own agenda”.

    Don’t know which one is sadder. Cue the “get some help” meme.

    Funny – aren't you doing exactly the same thing in this video? I really try to avoid any politics discussion. But come on, WSJ and some of the western media. Do you have to have an rival / enemy to do the reporting as China does? I mean, seriously, I know China has many issues, especially on freedom of speech. But you guys are no better, especially on double standard and misleading.

    Funny indeed, China suffered from its censorship and yet many other democratic leaders also try to control media.
    The basic point boils down to strong democracy and free media.

    I may sound utopian liberal.

    I heard from a Tweety Bird that someone willing to offer visa to fly all those 5 million HK Chinese over to US, UK, CANADA, Australia… Hnmmm Hiw about actually giving real helping hands to the YEMENESE, SYRIANS, LEBANESE, ROHINGYA & VENEZUELANS? Or Chinese kids skjn just look fairer and whiter and can only meet standard of "WESTERN REFUGEES" STATUS?

    WOW Even have to pick skin color when receiving Refugees? Western people had to be racist until darker skin have to get PAKISTAN & TURKEY to receive them…: "HUMAN RIGHTS" or "WESTERN TROPHIES" 🙄 Shameful and distasteful to think that WESTERN people had learned from BLM. It's just that they really had no choice and Pandemic made everyone stayed home and was free to watch the news only they know black people or people of color had to face so much problem. 😡

    Again the racist reaction from the WEST when picking FAIR SKIN "REFUGEES" and not DARK SKIN ONES. that are actually the one that needed helped most…make me disrespect the WESTERN POLITICIANS even more….hope their kids doesn't learn it from them. It's terrible examples

    China doesn’t need democracy. They lived for 5000 years without it. As long as CCP focus on economy expansion, chinese will be fine. 750k chinese are making lots of money right now. And they will continue to help the 600k more to earn more income and elevate their status into middle class. US is just afraid of their rise. They almost catching up to US gdp.
