The United Nations Human Rights Council this week will review reports of racism, police brutality and violence against protesters in the U.S. in an urgent meeting after weeks of anti-racism protests that have swept the country.
The request to hold an urgent debate among the 47-member group, of which the U.S. is not a member, was initially requested by Burkina Faso on behalf of 54 African countries after the family of George Floyd urged the group to review systemic racism and police brutality in the U.S.
Mr. Floyd died on May 25 after a white officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes during an arrest in Minneapolis.

Yeah, the UN needs to focus a bit more on some other places me thinks....
Communist nations and Islamic theocratic lands will unite to denounce America’s civil rights abuses.
Not interested in hearing what abusive despots have to say.
This always cracks me up. I wonder how we stack up against other nations with really diverse populations.
But really, we are 50 different countries, just like the EU. Spain is not Sweden, Alaska is not New Jersey.
Like, perhaps, the more than 60,000 victims of child rape, trafficking, sexual slavery committed by UN workers???!!!!
Cuber and Iran are going to straighten out the US?
No, Somalia and the Congo will set us straight.
they’re moving right along according to the script
They always focus on supposed “human rights” abuses in the US and Israel. Never hear much about those wonderful idyllic places like Saudi Arabia, Iran, Zimbabwe, China, etc., do we??
Owwwwww. Certainly skerred now. Hey u.n.——fah Q!
Yeah, the UN is so f’n useless.
Send the HQ to Zimbabwe and let Trump develop the old site there on the water.
Even DaCommieo would be pleased.
Jeria’s Chile has had its own share of complaints of abuse by police.
UN out of US.
US out of UN.
Enough is enough.
U.N. out of the U.S.!
More and more, you start to realize that most of the world’s “leaders” (including those that waste air at the UN) are a bunch of fools playing at being intelligent adults. They’re a pack of preening peacocks and narcissists.
How about them aiding and abetting atrocities? They act like peacekeepers, but in reality they allow one side to butcher the other. Disgraceful organization... Sadly, I’m named for one of the Secty Generals of the UN.....
The UN is nothing. They can’t pay their parking tickets.
The UN needs to get booted out of the USA.
Bush League Republicans have been flooding the country with foreigners to change the demographics of the country to outvote the native population in order to subsume the USA to the UN.
That is the end goal of Flimsey Grahamnesty, Micro Rubio and the rest of the Amnesty Senators.
Turns out the John Birch Society had it right...
Right; rules and restrictions are for white people.
