A group of United Nations independent experts today called on the Government of the United States to finalize the ongoing review of the case involving the death of teenager Trayvon Martin, an African –American teenager who was shot in 2012 by a neighbourhood watchman in the state of Florida. ...
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,” Ms. Shepherd said, recalling that the US has been party to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights since 1992, the International Convention on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination since 1994, and many other international human rights law treaties.
“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,” said the Special Rapporteur on racism, Mutuma Ruteere.
The Middle East is in chaos. Christians are being killed right and left, the U.S. is preparing to strike Syria, and Israel is in peril. But what is the UN worried about? Racism. And not just racism in general, but in Florida. There is a UN George Zimmerman inquiry that will take the final review of the case, courtesy of Obama's race baiters, and decide if Zimmerman should face federal civil rights charges.
"We call 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 UN Working Group of Experts of People of African Descent.
With Christians under siege throughout the Middle East and elsewhere, this week the United Nations sees as a priority the status of a local crime in the state of Florida. And not just a local crime, but one that has been adjudicated by a jury and one that an FBI report proved had nothing to do with racism.
He shot Martin because he was jumped by a dope smoking thug.
