UN human rights chief says rich nations should pay reparations for slavery as she condemns 'gratuitous brutality' of George Floyd's killing
Daily Mail ^ | June 17, 2020 | Sophie Tanno

The UN's human rights chief today urged countries to confront the legacy of slavery and colonialism and to make amends for 'centuries of violence and discrimination' through reparations.

Addressing an urgent debate on racism and police brutality at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, Michelle Bachelet called on countries to examine their pasts and to strive to better understand the scope of continuing 'systemic discrimination'.

----------

George Floyd's brother, Philonise Floyd, called on the United Nations to set up an independent commission to investigate the killings of African Americans by police.

He made his speech via video message during the meeting.

'I am my brother's keeper,' he said.

'You, at the United Nations, are your brothers and sisters keepers in America, and you have the power to help us get justice for my brother... I'm asking you to help him.

'I'm asking you to help me. I'm asking you to help us black people in America.

Did she summon the same outrage over Daniel Pearl’s killing?

“Michelle Bachelet”

Former Leftist president of Chile, and she left a mess there.

SHE has no moral position to be lecturing anyone on anything.

Go to the welfare office. I think the bill so far is in the trillions. Or is that not enough for your craven soul?

I suppose sacrificing hundreds of thousands of lives to free the slaves would be considered reparations. And it’s hard to put a price on that.

We’ve already done that...for decades already! No other group has had so much money, programs, and free stuff handed to them to make the changes the claim they want......years and years of it.

So this UN idiot has no clue what she’s saying......

What a total ass licker.

The first thing she needs to do so everyone knows she is sincere is sell all her belongings, including any homes she may own, then give ALL the proceeds to poor black people in America.

It won’t change anyone’s mind but I could use the laugh.

Philonise Floyd, called on the United Nations saying:

“You, at the United Nations, are your brothers and sisters keepers in America”....

NO they are NOT you dipwad!

When will blacks recognize THEY need to fix their issues instead of seeking other plantation owners.

Love the United Nations. Globalism is so cool. Just step up, Global Citizen, and get yer Global ID 2020, microchip and tattoo, all to prove you're a good citizen of the world.





The 2014 Global Citizen Festival - woohoo, a New World Order! Peace and Safety!

And the Obama hand sign or whatever @1:02

[The 2014 Global Citizen Festival]





Genesis 3:1-4 King James Version (KJV)

1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:"

-----

A global Citizen Festival. How wonderful. How worldly. How All Mankind Working Together. How Global. How Globalism in Action. How deceiving for the spiritually-blind who reject the prophecies in the Bible.

Just look at what countries are on the UN Human Rights Council. You'll be amazed how many are major Human Rights violators. This sub-organization of the UN General Assembly is a joke and a waste of time and money. Plus, they have no authority.

THE only reason I see the USA remaining connected to the UN is our permanent seat on the Security Council and our ability to veto UN resolutions/sanctions that are anti-Israel and anti-America. Our UN ambassador has to do that quite often, especially regarding Israel.
