IT'S A SAD DAY WHEN WE CEDE THE MORAL HIGH GROUND:

No breakthroughs in US, China human rights talks (Foster Klug, 5/16/10, Associated Press)

The United States and China reported no major breakthroughs Friday after only their second round of talks about human rights since 2002. [...]

Posner said in addition to talks on freedom of religion and expression, labor rights and rule of law, officials also discussed Chinese complaints about problems with U.S. human rights, which have included crime, poverty, homelessness and racial discrimination.

He said U.S. officials did not whitewash the American record and in fact raised on its own a new immigration law in Arizona that requires police to ask about a person's immigration status if there is suspicion the person is in the country illegally.


There hasn't been a moment like that since the USSR used to rightly throw Jim Crow back in our face.
