Our media is holding up a picture of an institutionally bigoted, aggressively militaristic, and fundamentally authoritarian country, and trying to make us believe that this picture depicts China instead of the U.S. As the 70th anniversary of China's communist revolution comes up on October 1st, China has achieved unparalleled reductions in poverty, a democratized society, and an ambitious environmental action plan that's set the country on track to meet its climate goals nine years early. But the Western media is convincing many people to ignore these marvels of Chinese socialism, and to see China as a force for evil.

This is reflected in these lyrics from the rapper Bambu's tribute song to the PRC, which is titled "Chairman Mao":

I study Mao Tse-tung's tongue, the young gun.

Lock, load, and bust one.

Champion with it like brraammp pomp pomp pomp!

Lebanon guerrillas that'll egg 'em from ten yards

with little pebbles, I call it strength in arms.

When it's broadcast on broadband, they savages like Tarzan.

They never get the background story, they'd rather jam

your frequency with trickery and headline news.

It's nothing new.

And if it's only half the truth, it ain't true.
