I'm sure you'll call me a racist for posting this story. ... A man, now 34, is reunited with his family after being abducted as a toddler from a hotel in China in 1988.

Yes. Unless you're interested in the comments of "human rights observers" then this kind of nationalist attention is essentially racist.

Which part?

The tearful reunion of a man and his parents?

The 29 other children the mother found and reunited with their families?

Her plan to continue helping other stolen children find their way home?

I confess to being a miserable git - China is obviously engaged in quite a remarkable exercise to right a lot of historic wrongs.

Pity the story wasn't headlined with those words in the first place.

Alongside that article is another lashing China for rights abuses.

The Government also wants to prohibit foreign political organisations or bodies from conducting political activities in Hong Kong or having links with overseas bodies.

Which is precisely what 50% of Americans are so (justifiably) angry about and over which they're making such a big fuss. 

Why does the same story from the US and from China get such radically different treatment?

Especially considering there is nothing like that ever gone on in the US - while its a huge and very real threat to countries like China!
