In U.S. foreign policy circles, there is no real concern for human rights in China. It is this issue that is indeed used as a political/cultural weapon against China. This issue has been identified by foreign policy experts as something to use against China.
Lets face it…if the U.S. really cared for human rights a good start would be in their own country. The United States has 5% of the global population but have 25% of the world’s prison population. 1/6 of those prisoners are in prison for marijuana. There are no naked body scanners in China. You can drive for years in China without ever being pulled over by a police officer.
Compare that to U.S. where local police are out revenue generating every day by writing tickets to middle class people whose only goal is to just get to work.
