[Ed. – Great idea. Let’s invite Cuba, which is a member of the U.N. Human Rights Council, report to the world on U.S. oppression.]
The U.S. State Department, helmed by Secretary Antony Blinken, announced Tuesday that the Biden administration would invite United Nations officials who investigate racism and human rights issues to visit the United States and tell Americans — and the rest of the world — how racist our country is.
The invitation comes after last month’s U.N. report on racism and police brutality that called for global reparations based on several incidents including the death of George Floyd in 2020.
Calling it “leading by example,” Secretary of State Blinken said in a statement that the invitation is proof the Biden administration “is deeply dedicated to addressing racial injustice and inequities at home and abroad.”
The United States intends to issue a formal, standing invitation to all UN experts who report and advise on thematic human rights issues.
