Why don't Americans view Hong Kong protesters as you viewed Baltimore ones; as rioters and criminals; double standards much?

    The people in Baltimore were certainly "rioters," but I don't recall thinking they were "criminals".  They strongly felt they had a legitimate grievance, and I agreed that they did. So did many other Americans.

    I wish to hell such grievances, whether here in the US or in Hong Kong, could be dealt with without violence, but I understand why people erupt as they do in these situations.

    Most Americans want to see China and Russia break up and end up like Massive versions of Iraq and Syria. They don't like countries that are economically and militarily competing with them.

    Why should we care about a bunch of stupid protesters in Hong Kong??? I don't even know what they're protesting against, and I don't give a damn!

    It's none of the USA's business. It's a Chinese problem for them to deal with.

      Lili, that's fine but we aren't going to war with China over Hong Kong.

    Hong Kong protesters were angry because

    1. China wants to take away Hong Kongers' freedom

    2. police brutality

    Not sure what Baltimore protesters are protesting.

    Because they are hypocrites with zero knowledge of East Asian politics.

    .

    Hong Kongers were protesting against a bill (made by the Chief Executive of Hong Kong itself) NOT ''freedom'' or whatever delusional crap they're talking about.

    Look at this idiot for an example  ''considerably larger than anger over the extradition bill'' This person can't even mention the supposedly ''considerably larger than anger over the extradition bill'' As I said before, most Americans are idiots and have no knowledge of East Asian politics or any kind of politics outside their country.

    If you want to talk about ''Freedom'' please congratulate South Sudan for achieving that and ending up being split up from the North and facing more poverty than ever before. They have democracy and freedom but are starving peasants. That's what America wants to do to China.

      The protests have metamorphosed into something considerably larger than anger over the extradition bill. That should be obvious to anyone with a modicum of brains and perception.

      Try to grow up, sweetie. I realize it might be difficult for you, but give it a go.

    Hong Kongers want to be free like the colonists did, there is a huge difference between rioting and wanting freedom.

    You're the dumbest person on Earth; did you just realise Americans have double standards?

      Everyone has double standards of that kind, dear, not just Americans. I've seen that all over the world.
