pipedreams Posted July 15, 2021 Share Posted July 15, 2021 Just what we need, the UN!!? "Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Tuesday that the administration has invited experts from the United Nations (U.N.) who investigate racism and minority issues to conduct an official visit to the United States. “As a first step, we have reached out to offer an official visit by the U.N. Special Rapporteur on contemporary forms of racism and the U.N. Special Rapporteur on minority issues,” Blinken said in a statement. “Responsible nations must not shrink from scrutiny of their human rights record; rather, they should acknowledge it with the intent to improve. “I urge all U.N. member states to join the United States in this effort, and confront the scourge of racism, racial discrimination, and xenophobia,” he said." https://www.theepochtimes.com/biden-administration-invites-un-racism-investigators-to-visit-us_3901981.html "The former police officer and co-founder of the BLEXIT movement Brandon Tatum said one need not be a conspiracy theorist to understand this. Statistics show that twice as many unarmed whites are shot by the police each year than unarmed blacks. In 2018, the most recent year for which data on this is available, blacks made up 53 percent of homicide offenders in the United States and committed about 60 percent of robberies, while only making up 13 percent of the population. Meanwhile, the Biden administration is trying to pass sweeping police reform legislation, the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2021, which passed the House in March. But the legislation has since been embroiled in negotiations led by Rep. Karen Bass(D-Calif.), Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.)" 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
