[Ed. – Though the Human Rights Council is a separate entity, working collaboratively with the High Commissioner, the UNHRC’s membership – which is currently enriched by China, Cuba, Somalia, Sudan, and Venezuela, among others – is a useful guide to the UN’s stance on human rights.]
UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet, formerly the leader of Peru, which has plenty of racial issues, decided to single out, not China, which is run for the benefit of Han Chinese, or any Arab Muslim country, including Qatar, which uses and kills foreign non-Muslim slave laborers on a massive scale, but the United States of America.
“The status quo is untenable,” High Commissioner Bachelet said. “Systemic racism needs a systemic response. … We need a transformative approach that tackles the interconnected areas that drive racism, and lead to repeated, wholly avoidable, tragedies like the death of George Floyd.”
“The Black Lives Matter movement and other civil society groups led by people of African descent … should receive funding, public recognition and support.”
