Inept US leadership fuels racial fires

Perhaps it would be wiser for US authorities to safeguard the rights of those protesters in America who are demanding nothing short of the "American Dream" of justice and equality for all. Democracy, real democracy, should start at home.

George Floyd murder exposes rotten racism in the US

In 2016, Trump won the popular support from the low- and middle-class white people who felt they were reversely discriminated under the Obama era. Trump himself is a racist president, as Democrats call him. The latest protests may just lead to ever stronger white supremacy.

What to be wary of in robust EU strategy toward China?

Europe seems to stress more “value” dimensions of its policy toward China. Despite the fact that China respects Europe's commitments to its own value system, a so-called value-based policy is turning into interference into China's own affairs. This posture will greatly damage the trust China and Europe have built up together for years.

Watch out! 'Beautiful sight' in HK is spreading across the US

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi once called the violent protests in Hong Kong "a beautiful sight to behold." Now, the "beautiful sight" is extending from Hong Kong to over a dozen US states. US politicians now can enjoy this sight from their own windows.

US should stand with Minnesota violent protesters as it did with HK rioters

The chaos in Hong Kong has lasted for over a year and military forces have not been dispatched. Yet after only three days of chaos in Minnesota, Trump publicly threatened the use of firepower and implied military forces could be utilized. That is the state of US inequality and another example of the country's double standards. Well, America, what should I say?

Canada's new epidemic: coronavirus-induced racism

While Canada has fought hard for decades to become an open and pluralistic society where all cultures can commingle, Trumpism has tainted our society in recent years. His mishandling of the COVID-19 crisis that has killed over 100,000 Americans on his watch is only exacerbating the matter.
