UN to US: Get Zimmerman


flagsWith nothing more important to do than make pompous pronouncements on an already resolved criminal case in Florida, a United Nations sub-group on racism called on the United States government late last week to finalize the ongoing review of the case involving the controversial shooting of black Trayvon Martin by the media-designated “white Hispanic” neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman.

The United Nations Working Group of Experts of People of African Descent (the UN needs to put together a Working Group of Experts on Creating Group Names That Make Better Acronyms) released a statement calling upon “the US Government to examine its laws that could have discriminatory impact on African Americans, and to ensure that such laws are in full compliance with the country’s international legal obligations and relevant standards,” said “human rights expert” Verene Shepherd, who currently heads the group of experts (the UN News article mentions quite often that they are experts, to reassure you that as experts they are surely qualified to lecture the least racist nation in the world about how racist we are).

This comes after a trial in which Zimmerman was found innocent of all charges, and after a separate FBI investigation found no racism in Zimmerman’s motivation. That wasn’t enough for the experts at UNWGEPAD, who must have their hands full keeping up with trials involving people of African descent in every country around the world. Nor was it enough for Attorney General Eric Holder, who is mulling over a federal civil action against Zimmerman, and who instituted a tip line for Americans who want to act as Holder’s informants and dig up some useful dirt on Zimmerman.

“The Trayvon Martin case has highlighted the importance of the need to review those existing laws and policies that can have a discriminatory effect on the basis of race, as African Americans become more vulnerable to such discrimination,” pontificated Ms. Shepherd. Her statement didn’t specify which American laws and policies are discriminatory, although she may have had in mind the ‘Stand Your Ground” law that sparked so much misplaced outrage here in the States. That law had nothing to do with the Martin-Zimmerman case; it was invoked by neither the prosecution nor the defense. It’s unclear how, as an expert, Ms. Shepherd overlooked this detail.

“States are required to take effective measures to review governmental, national and local policies, and to amend, rescind or nullify any laws and regulations which have the effect of creating or perpetuating racial discrimination wherever it exists,” added Mutuma Ruteere, the UN’s “Special Rapporteur on contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance” since November 2011 (I don’t know how he gets all that on his business card). Thanks for reminding us from your office in Switzerland of something we already know, Mr. Ruteere, but as an expert, surely you are aware that the United States has already been spectacularly effective at eliminating racial discrimination. We have a black President.

The Working Group is composed of five independent experts: the aforementioned expert Shepherd, Chair-Rapporteur; Ms. Monorama Biswas from Bangladesh; Ms. Mireille Fanon-Mendes-France from, unsurprisingly, France; Ms. Mirjana Najcevska from the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, and Ms. Maya Sahli from Algeria. It was established on April 25, 2002 following the World Conference against Racism held in Durban in 2001 (the same conference that was very nearly highjacked by parties determined to focus entirely on slavery reparations and labeling Zionism as racism).

The Group’s experts, among other activities, visit countries – often First World countries like Spain, Portugal, and Belgium, because you know, that’s where racism is most heavily concentrated, as well as the most happening nightlife – to “facilitate in-depth understanding of the situation of people of African descent” in various regions of the world and to focus on promoting “full and effective access to health, education and justice by people of African descent.” [Emphasis added] “Justice,” for those unfamiliar with the language of the left, means “social justice” and economic redistribution for the oppressed non-white peoples of the world – in other words, racial payback.

I’m no expert like the experts at UNWGEPAD, but it seems to me that if they are serious about addressing racism, xenophobia, and intolerance involving minorities and people of African descent (and by the way, aren’t we all ultimately people of African descent?), they could focus less on one shooting in the United States that has already been judged non-racist, and more on the slaughter of black Christians in Nigeria by Boko Haram, or the slaughter of Egyptian Christians at the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood, or the savage slaughter of minority white farmers by South African blacks, or the modern-day slavery being carried out in Arab countries.

If they insist on focusing on the plight of Americans of African descent, perhaps they could address the slaughter of black gun victims at the hands of other blacks in strictly gun-controlled Chicago, or the tragic epidemic of fatherless black households, or the disproportionately high rate of abortions in the black community, or the widespread problem of gangs, or the entertainment industry’s lucrative promotion of gangstas and drug dealers as black role models.

The “experts” at the United Nations Working Group of Experts of People of African Descent, like the UN itself, serve no real-world function. They occasionally travel somewhere on a fact-finding trip, then come back to their nice offices in Geneva or the UN and write official, bloodless reports and recommendations that are passed around in attractive folders to useless bureaucrats far removed from the brutal reality of the strong massacring the weak in distant corners of the earth. For some reason, savages committing genocide don’t bother to read those reports. The fact that UNWGEPAD took the time to lecture the United States on the urgency to finish its witch-hunt against the acquitted George Zimmerman speaks volumes about their misplaced priorities and ineffectual work.

    Zimmerman should seriously consider moving to a Latin country. That poor slob is never going to know peace here and there is a good chance he will end up being murdered.

  • http://www.facebook.com/melvin.polatnick Melvin Polatnick

    There is no greater burden to carry then the one of being called a RACIST, Zimmerman has no place to hide in a world where 90% are people of color.

    • Aizino Smith

      Especially in a country where so called journalists at the NYT call you a white-hispanic. And this in a country which has turned the old white-racists one drop of black blood rule on its’ head into a a new black-racist measure.

      If Zimmerman had been a hip hop artist and had one drop of black blood he would be considered black. If he had been an established artist and had taken up the normal racist narratives of hip hop artists he would have been celebrated and had street cred for whacking someone.

      • kikorikid

        “Diversity” has it all covered!
        Next time any here fill out an employment application
        look close. In the RACE question it will,likely, have
        “White (not Hispanic)” as a response.
        This allows Hispanics to claim something they are
        not. While defining a White by something they are not.
        This is also ,likey, the source of the NYTs mental
        discombubalation, or something like that.
        Get rid of the UN, get rid of the NYT.

    • vladdy1

      Millions do not agree that there is no greater burden. To some, it has become meaningless, to some it always has been meaningless, and some just laugh at the audacity of someone who tries to label them. Some believe that leaving Americans (esp. Special Ops guys who disobeyed orders to go help save people) to die is the greater burden; others believe being a known rapist carries more shame and can be a bigger problem.

  • joespook

    Zimmerman needs to become a gay or convert to Islam as quickly as possible.

    • chris

      If he goes to the UK he can do both!

  • Demetrius Minneapolis

    Isn’t it well known that Zimmernan’s maternal grandmother was half-black? Doesn’t that count him as a “People of African Descent” member?

    • WageSlave

      Well, technically, GZ looks white, so…

      • Aizino Smith

        So are we to go around an measures people’s skin tone with photometers and judge their ethnicity and worth based on that?

        So an albino born in Africa is considered white?

        At 1st blush GZ looks Hispanic in hair and skin color.

        • glpage

          So, who is more African-American, Obama or Charlize Theron? Ms. Theron was born in Africa, so, that should qualify her as African-American. Obama has visited Africa but that doesn’t make him African (unless he really was born in Kenya) and he sure as hell doesn’t act like an American.

        • vladdy1

          Are we back to the paper bag test? I always thought that was done AMONG the group, not TO the group.

          • Aizino Smith

            I have heard of this done within family among siblings by a grandmother. Now one would consider that grandmother evil. But I see her reacting to the social pressures around her. That it is done at all I disagree with.

            What i hate are people like Jesse Jackson who I would think would go around with a photometer grading people like we was some newborn allemaine SS.

            The darker you are the more reparations you get. The darker you are the more points you get on a federal employment application and so on. If the one drop rule can be resurrected than a person like Jesse can resurrect the SS.

            The photometer ideal is not so outlandish when you consider that the NYT (may it go bankrupt) calls Zimmerman a White-hispanic to delegitimize him as a minority so that it is easier to attack him in the press. That is my beef.

            Maybe Jesse doesn’t have the calibrated photometers. It is the editorial board of the NYT and they are doing a more precise paperbag test according to their religion.

        • Headed4TheHills

          Dude, y’all gotta learn to recognize facetiousness when ya see it. I was puttin’ myself in the role o’ the race-baiters out there – like them MSM idjits what kept claimin’ GZ was a WHITE Hispanic.

          • Aizino Smith

            I was serious about what I think a person like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton or one of their followers might do.

            The NATSIs used calipers to measure the cranium. Black racists might run around with photometers measuring skin tone.

            and the glove does fit.

      • cathy

        If George Zimmerman is White … then Barack Obama is White. When all is said and done in the Republic race should never be the issue.

        Theodore Roosevelt – 1907

        “We should insist that if the immigrant who comes here does in good faith become an American and assimilates himself to us he shall be treated on an exact equality with every one else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed or birth-place or origin. But this is predicated upon the man’s becoming in very fact an American and nothing but an American. If he tries to keep segregated with men of his own origin and separated from the rest of America, then he isn’t doing his part as an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language, for we intend to see that the crucible turns our people out as Americans, of American nationality, and not as dwellers in a polyglot boarding-house; and we have room for but one soul loyalty, and that is loyalty to the American people.”

    The UN needs to mind their own business. We are not changing our Constitution nor the laws of this country to suit any other country in the world and especially not the UN. This was a fair trial, a fair verdict rendered by an impartial jury. That’s our law, to be tried by OUR peers, not some drummed-up tribunal.

    • Gee

      The President and State Department want to change that

    • pupsncats

      You obviously haven’t been following Obama since his election. Although he can’t change our Constitution or our laws, he has ignored both and operates in many ways as though neither exist.

      • glpage

        And, given that truth, he has violated his oath of office and should be impeached.

        • pupsncats

          Right. And who in our government is going to start impeachment proceedings?

      • kikorikid

        But he sure as hell is SHARIA COMPLIANT!

  • cecil91

    These UN attache-grifters are the spawn of leftist-egalitarian propagandists that have been warping minds and cultures for decades. They rarely think in logical ways, but simply react in knee-jerk fashion to anything that hints at racial animus toward minorities. They don’t look into facts and they don’t arrive at rational conclusions. Shine a few documented facts on them and they scamper away like crickets in the sun. The only reason they don’t permanently disappear is because leftists have turned their racial propagandizing into a global industry.

    • pupsncats

      No one has expressed that truth better than you cecil91.

    • Drakken

      As much as I hate to say it, but I think it is time to purge these parasites from our midst, permanently. Make an example of them.

    If they did that they would have to demand those people take responsibility for their lives and choices and change. And that is not in the liberal DNA

  • Kaitty

    There was a quick non-racist trial! It is over and done with. It is an internal USA problem and UN should apologize and remove theirselves. They have no business in attempting to interfere and making an undeserved bigger issue of it than it was!

  • http://www.shugartmedia.com/ Chris Shugart

    Has anyone noticed that the United Nations is united on one agenda only? The reduction of US power globally. Then consider that the US is the top funder of the UN. There’s some really bad math going on here. We’re basically paying bullies to throw rocks at us.

  • IC

    No offense to some people, but you guys are really slow to understanding the role of the UN or just whats going on in the world as a whole.. they are a “international police” that was one of the main purposes of the organizations’ creation. So before going all crazy and barking about the UN meddling in US internal affairs, look at yourselves first, you are part of a country that sticks their nose and warmongers in every region of the world. So really, your country is not above international laws and norms. But I wouldn’t expect the same people b*tching about the UN to know about these things anyway. Do some reading and educate yourselves. Hate on me all you want but thats only because hearing the truth is hard. You know democracy has diminished in a country when orgnizations like NSA have invaded your personal life and has collected every single bit of information about you… Yet there has been no reaction from the victims. Casper the ghost isnt going to protest and condemn these embarrasing actions for you, and being spoon fed by corporate owned news outlets such CNN, who have shareholders that are also part of the military industrial complex and other sectors are not going to let their own media corporations to criticize their interests. In other words, the news you watch every morning is propaganda and very biased.

    Let the 5th grade labelling and name calling begin.

      Fifth grade rhetoric demands fifth grade labeling.

  • Race_Dissident

    Perhaps these experts could find time to examine the curious phenomenon whereby black Americans are more than two times as likely as whites to commit “hate crimes.” Oppression and discrimination indeed.

  • autdrew

    I was just going to mention Ms Theron! I have often used her as an example as to why african american is so misleading. She is more African than any african american I have ever met yet she would NEVER be allowed to be called that. Its a silly distinction. If we must have distinctions, just say black, white, hispanic, asian, native or aboriginal (tho most americans probably wouldnt get that one lol, not a knock on US, its just that we dont use that word here)

  • tokoloshiman

    with all the problems in the world this is what the UN focuses on, what a joke, totally in keeping with the ridiculous organization it is.

  • Richard O. Mann

    Nuke the UN.

  • tracy

    How in the hell did the U.N. get involved in this?There are third world countries(Africa apartheid) that they could be helping.This is a total waste of time and money.Who pays these so-called experts?They don’t seem to be able to expertly prevent a war in Syria or expertly enforce their laws of war.

  • herb benty

    The UN…..what a piece of work! In Canada, our good Prime Minister publicaly has supported Israel and is a conservative. Of course this has brought the Left out spewing venom and UN rapporteurs to head to Canada. The “UN” heard that Canada wasn’t treating the Native population well. BS. We give the Native tribes many BILLIONS of dollars each year, Natives pay no tax if they live on reserve, the perks go on and on. The UN was taken over by Communism/Islam a while ago, meaning the real oppressors will get a free ride, while good, successful countries will be vilified. End the UN- another wicked “World” leftist group that hates the West and our wonderful Judeo-Christian heritage.

  • bluffcreek1967

    Having ‘racist’ opinions or expressing ‘unapproved’ government views of ‘minorities’ are the highest crimes in the new world order of Utopian Leftists.

    And whites are stupid enough to allow one little word to completely drive them to fear and silence!? Whites live in fear that someone might think they’re ‘racist’ unless they approve of every government program geared toward ‘helping’ blacks and Hispanics. They also live in fear of being labeled ‘racist’ for simply calling out black dysfunctional behavior for what it is. Whites have allowed liberals to silence them, and once we have been silenced, they have won.

    Since Zimmerman is a white Hispanic, Obama must be a Black Whitie or Black cracker.

  • snafubar

    Maybe the “The United Nations Working Group of Experts of People of African Descent” should focus on People of African Descent who cold-cock and kill innocent white American men going for a walk, or focus on People of African Descent who rove in gangs targeting white American people for assault, rape and murder.

  • snafubar

    Simple. They want OUR hard earned money in THEIR pockets. Just like the Obozo regime.

  • TaTa_U

    The post listed here and the reactions expressed in them, in regards to the Racist Conspiracy Disguised as the Trial of George Zimmerman are proof positive why the UN has decreed what it has and groups like The United Nations Working Group of Experts of People of African Descent are necessary.
    This diseased thinking is being allowed to spread.
