"If one's heart is blind, you do not expect his/her eyes to be bright," the statement said."The Five Eyes Alliance countries, including the United States, should reflect on the racial superiority complex deep in their hearts, give up their pride and prejudice inherited from Hong Kong's colonial rule and shed their illusion of using Hong Kong to contain China's development and prosperity.
"We urge them to drop their hypocrisy and double standards, stop interfering in Hong Kong affairs and China's internal affairs, and turn their eyes to their own governance issues that urgently need addressing. In today's world, no attempt to pressurize China or damage China's sovereignty, security and development interests will ever prevail."
"We urge the Chinese central authorities to re-consider their actions against Hong Kong's elected legislature and immediately reinstate the Legislative Council members," foreign ministers from the five countries said in a statement on Thursday.
"China's action is a clear breach of its international obligations under the legally binding, UN-registered Sino-British Joint Declaration," they said.The Chinese embassy in the U.S. rejected this claim, saying the the Sino-British Joint Declaration was not the legal basis for China's administration in Hong Kong.
"The Joint Declaration has never conferred any power on the United Kingdom or any other country to assume any responsibility over Hong Kong after its return. There is no legal basis or position for the Five Eyes Alliance to point fingers about Hong Kong affairs," the embassy said.

The Chinese want to have a conversation about racism? China’s population is ~95% Mongoloid right? Nothing to do with political agreements and the rule of law, then? Which would work for me in fact, because it is true. But also, the Chinese target minorities of their own to despise. Specifically, Uighurs and any person with obvious African genetics. Look up the statistics on being black in China. Racism is real. All nations deal with it
y_kitman It’s called intellectual superiority I like that phrase. It works Strange argument when the US is supporting Hong Kong citizens who are (checking my notes) also Chinese. The fact that articles like these makes it into the US mainstream is very concerning because all it is is Chinese propaganda. (And if you can’t see it, hopefully you’re not too far gone and can still be saved) I’m sure the Uyghurs would 100% disagree with this article.
THAT came out of left field. Only a million miles from civil rights. Hong Kong might as well be Detroit, Atlanta, Philadelphia and any other American county that has people that were suppressed from voting! Huh?!? Sadly, there’s enough racial superiority complex to go around Communist Chinese Party is master of propaganda. By accusing the West of ‘racial superiority complex’, they are trying to unite the Chinese people behind Xi & his Regime agst foreign adversaries.
China can go and Kung flu itself! I a sick of their obnoxious arrogant dictatorship Lol why should we care what these little lab rats say?
