Human Rights report
I will go one tiny step further than Ogged and claim that it actually is funny, and perhaps even ironic: China's Human Rights Report on the U.S.
And of course, because this is the internet, the obvious cannot be repeated clearly enough: yes, the United States has a much better record on human rights than China does, or indeed than many parts of the world. And the Chinese report is not exactly a paragon of objective analysis. Doesn't mean we're perfect, and certainly no reason to be happy about our own situation. Any American who is not angry and embarrassed at the conditions of African-Americans in this country is just not paying attention.
