Mostly black for so victimless crimes.  No economic planning.  Libertardian-Ayn Rand fascists and devils,  who claim they believe in freedom yet love private prisons. Not civil libertarians, at all .  They are racist, Ayn Rand-fascists, teapatiers.  Repuklikan-nazis  . The whole lot are, Lying, hipporitical-racist scum . Bobo-gulpers and hippocrits.  China has its problems but, it had sense enough,  to limit its population growth. Gutter propagandists, of the worse sort kill and, lie in murica  400,000 dead in murica, from covid.  They spew vicious redbaitng propaganda about China.
