The report by, Maina Kiai, will be presented to the United Nations Human Rights Council on June 17, 2017.
The UN "expert" covers a lot of topics under a headline that says his report is on our rights of assembly and association. It is an opinion piece worthy of HuffPo but it will be presented as fact and touches on race, guns, rights of illegals, and labor unions.
Who knows what the UN will do about the results of their Council but everyone should be aware that this is happening.

I learned of this from an earlier post but the information was not presented in this way and I think it deserves to be repeated.

The dog has finally bitten the warmongering hand that feeds it.

You do realise that these same 'fact finding' reports are the ones used by Hilary et al to justify things like bombing Syria and Libya, don't you.

Just saying....

It's an opinion piece written by ONE UN workers personal opinion of the state of civil liberties in America...
You know the freest most ethnic diverse nation on the planet...

“There is justifiable and palpable anger in the black community over these injustices. It needs to be expressed,” he stressed. “This is the context that gave birth to the non-violent Black Lives Matter protest movement and the context in which it must be understood.”

This is where I stopped reading.

I would encourage everyone too, to read the statement that is linked at the bottom of the article you have linked, not just US citizens because he actually makes some very very good points about how racism manifests itself in many social issues such as the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and of association as well as the war on drugs. (albeit his visit to the US was over only a 2 week period covering both conventions etc)

Statement from UN special rapporteur

To be clear, the focus of my mission was not race or discrimination. My mandate concerns the enjoyment of the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and of association. But it is impossible to discuss these rights without issues of racism pervading the discussions. Racism and the exclusion, persecution and marginalization that come with it, affect the enabling environment for the exercise of association and assembly rights.

This issue is particularly grave in the African-American community, and understanding its context means looking back at 400 years of slavery. It also means looking at the emergence of the Jim Crow laws that destroyed the achievements of the Reconstruction Era, which emerged at the end of slavery in 1865, and enforced segregation and marginalized the African-American community to a life of misery, poverty and persecution.

It means looking at what happened after Jim Crow laws were dismantled, when old philosophies of exclusion and discrimination were reborn, cloaked in new and euphemistic terms. These may have not been race-based on their face, but they have, intentionally or not, disproportionately targeted African-Americans and other minorities.

The so-called “War on Drugs” is a perfect example. From it, one out of every 15 black men is in currently jail. One out of every 13 African-Americans, meanwhile, has lost their right to vote due to a felony conviction. An aggressive emphasis on street-level “law and order” (or “broken windows” approach) policing combined with wide police discretion means that African-Americans are subjected to systematic police harassment – and sometimes much worse – often for doing nothing more than walking down the street or gathering in a group. Convictions and incarcerations dramatically increased once the “War on Drugs” was set in motion, without a corresponding increase in drug use.

Thanks. You just saved me a bunch of time. I don't need any more whining about the US in my life.

In all the nations on earth, with all the human rights violations taking place, this guy chooses the blm as his soap box?

Nothing like an agenda and an audience full of sheep...
