USA: the Government invited UN experts to investigate racism in the country

The United States Government on Thursday invited experts from the United Nations (UN) to investigate racism against African-Americans.

Antony Blink, Secretary of State, welcomed the decision of the UN Human Rights Council that a group of experts examine police violence against “people of African descent” in the world.

“Responsible nations should not try to avoid assessing their human rights situation. On the contrary, they should request an intention to improve,” he said in a statement.

Blinken invited UN experts to visit the United States and urged other member states to participate in “this effort to combat racism, discrimination and xenophobia.”

That stance contrasts with that of Trump and his allies in the face of the anti-racist demonstrations that rocked the United States in 2020 following the murder of George Floyd, an African-American suffocated by a white policeman.

Trump denied that there was systematic racism in the United States, attributed police violence to “bad apples” and rejected any criticism of his country’s history.

“Blinken, instead of asking the UN to come to the US and tell us how ‘racist’ our country is, why don’t you ask them to go to Cuba, where an evil socialist regime breaks into people’s homes, gives them a beating and then they drag them away? “, Republican senator Marco Rubio tweeted, alluding to the unprecedented protests unleashed on the socialist island.
