I think it's dangerous to rationalize away a concerted effort to confront a potential humanitarian crises by just asking "what about the US?"
I'm born and raised in China, I totally understand the outrage. I understand the political sensitivities there, and I have family friends who have been persecuted for being too religious or too influential. Of course, Chinese citizens/netizens aren't the party, but the level of propaganda, combined with a deep rooted (super-)nationalist ideology drilled into our minds at a very early age, means that our entire communications ecosystem is just a giant propaganda bubble. My parents still talk about the protesters as if they're rabid thugs looking to target mainland nationals and beat them or kill them. This isn't the isolated discourse either, as their entire WeChat experience these days is just revolved around who can come up with the scarier story about the protest.
It's overly naive at best, and disingenuous at its worst, to claim that the netizens are not part of the problem. They're not the CCP, and they don't have executive, legislative, nor any real decision making powers, but they're definitely in line with the party, and they serve as the direct channel for party propaganda.
I also want to point out that criticizing Chinese policies, its propaganda arm, etc, aren't racially motivated. It's different to observe the fact that Chinese influence over international affairs may bring political instabilities to the world than someone claiming that we are racially different and hence must be born to be evil. It's equally valid to criticize US involvement in international affairs and the instabilities that our war mongering foreign policies have brought upon the world over the past 50 years, but that's not a valid rationalization in support of Chinese policies. Sure, it's hypocritical, but it does not excuse the evilness of China today.
