KIRSTERS BAISH| The United Nations has made an interesting statement on reparations of slavery for African Americans. A 2016 report by A United Nations- affiliated group decided that African Americans are still facing consequences of the United States’ history of slavery and racial segregation. They are claiming that reparations are in place for the “suffering” that African Americans “still” face today.
The video clip below shows Mireille Fanon Mendes of France reading off the decision:
The United Nations’ Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent made their final decision, claiming that “the legacy of colonial history, enslavement, racial subordination and segregation, racial terrorism and racial inequality in the United States remains a serious challenge, as there has been no real commitment to reparations and to truth and reconciliation for people of African descent.”
You’re probably thinking what I’m thinking… this is complete crap. African Americans aren’t treated any differently than whites are in present-day America. Although slavery was obviously wrong in its entirety, blacks living in our country today were never enslaved, therefore are not owed any sort of reparation for slavery… because it never happened to them!
The group came up with comparisons between the lynchings of blacks in earlier years of our country and modern-day police killings. The group also recommended “urgent action” by “improving the reporting of violations involving the excessive use of force and extrajudicial killings by the police.”
Police using force to arrest a suspect is definitely not the same thing as a mob of angry people lynching someone based on the color of their skin. Police use force when necessary to make an arrest. If a suspect is fighting back, it is definitely necessary to subdue them in order to make said arrest. Why do self-entitled blacks always have to make themselves a victim? Of course, I am not including all black people in my statement, as there are plenty of blacks who understand why the police do what they do and understand that whites today had nothing to do with slavery… because none of us were alive when people owned slaves. And in case anyone wasn’t aware, the police use force when arresting white people as well.
The group reached their conclusion after they went on a “fact-finding” mission back in January in Washington. The recommendations they are making are non-binding, but they do call for reparations by a coalition of Caribbean nations. The group is claiming that the main occupants of those nations should actually be adopted by the United States.
The group’s statement claiming, “Past injustices and crimes against African Americans need to be addressed with reparatory justice.” They explained that reparations would possibly be in the form of “a formal apology, health initiatives, educational opportunities, an African knowledge program, psychological rehabilitation, technology transfer and financial support, and debt cancellation.”
Okay, now I know this has to be a sick joke. They want to use American taxpayers’ dollars to give black people (who were NEVER enslaved) advantages and debt forgiveness?! This is completely ridiculous, and the United Nations group has just proved that they are racist themselves. (No, you don’t have to be on the side of the white man in order to be racist, despite what Liberals want you to think.)
The group also claimed that we should be raising awareness by building monuments, education, and memorials. These will be accompanied by “acts of reconciliation.” The group added onto their statement claiming that these ideas would counteract “the dangerous ideology of white supremacy [which] inhibits social cohesion amongst the United States population.”
This crap proves my dislike for the United Nations, because unlike their name, they are not uniting us. All they are doing is creating a worse racial divide than the one that already exists. After all, that is what the Liberals want. That’s what Obama’s entire focus was during his time in office. Liberals are dividing blacks and whites in order to further their political agenda. This is truly sickening. H/T
