Chinese state media made a racist video about India and is censoring its critics - WaPo
A state-run Chinese media agency faces growing backlash over its propaganda video demeaning India's Sikh community, the latest development in what's fast becoming a volatile border dispute between the two nuclear powers.

Titled "7 Sins of India," the video features a Chinese actor, dressed in a turban and phony beard, reciting monosyllabic lines in English but in a manner Indians "are perceived to speak," as the Hindustan Times characterized it.

Critics in India, China and elsewhere have condemned the video as flagrantly racist.

The three-minute clip was published Wednesday on several verified social media channels operated by Xinhua News, an English-language outlet headquartered in Beijing and overseen by China's State Council. It's available internationally on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. In China, however, another English-language news site appears to have been censored after criticizing the video.

Gee. I thought  that organization was BEZOS controlled. Am I to understand, BEZOS DICTATED this story to CIA operatives who publish WaPoo "reporting"? That can't be good for US America, can it?

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
