The history of slavery in the United States justifies reparations for African Americans, argues a recent report by a U.N.-affiliated group based in Geneva.

This conclusion was part of a study by the United Nations’ Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent, a body that reports to the international organization’s High Commissioner on Human Rights. The group of experts, which includes leading human rights lawyers from around the world, presented its findings to the United Nations Human Rights Council on Monday, pointing to the continuing link between present injustices and the dark chapters of American history.

…The panel drew its recommendations, which are nonbinding and unlikely to influence Washington, after a fact-finding mission in the United States in January. At the time, it hailed the strides taken to make the American criminal justice system more equitable but pointed to the corrosive legacy of the past.

…To be sure, such initiatives are nowhere in the cards, even after the question of reparations arose again two years ago when surfaced by the groundbreaking work of American journalist Ta-Nehisi Coates.

Separately, a coalition of Caribbean nations is calling for reparations from their former European imperial powers for the impact of slavery, colonial genocide and the toxic racial laws that shaped life for the past two centuries in these countries. Their efforts are fitful, and so far not so fruitful.

When asked by reporters to comment on the tone of the American presidential election campaign on Monday, the working group’s chairman, Ricardo A. Sunga of the Philippines, expressed concern about “hate speech … xenophobia [and] Afrophobia” that he felt was prevalent in the campaign, although he didn’t specifically call out Republican candidate Donald Trump.

“We are very troubled that these are on the rise,” said Sunga.

It has always been a policy of mine that those who raise an alarm should first check to make sure that alarm is not found in their own activities.  So, here is my message to United Nations and their Working Group of Experts – STUFF IT.  

Until you stop the murders of innocent tribesmen and families; until you provide education, health, and welfare for the continent of Africa that raises them up to at least third world standard; until you have addressed the sex slave and violence currently happening in Africa and stop it; until the UN can successfully prove its worth not its power grab mentality – STUFF IT WHERE THE SUN DOESN’T SHINE.  

You are simply so much hot air rising to be seen.  You are not relevant.  You are not capable of providing advice to any country. Do not pass go.  Do not collect a dime of US taxpayer funds.

Mr. Sunga.  I would not worry about the US relations with the Philippines until you have had a chance to sit down with the next President.  You already know Hillary Clinton is more crooked than the drug dealers you guys are eliminating. (BTW smooth move, it may come to that here.)  At least give a President Trump an opportunity to work with you.

As to those supposedly marching around the world in solidarity–what are you marching for?  BLM is chaos.  They burn and do not build.  They condemn and do not elevate.  They destroy but do not help their own people in the communities.  If you want to march for better rights, do it peacefully not infected with the communistic chaos theory. If you want recognition, do it in the acknowledgement of the GOOD points being done to advance your cultures lives.  Acknowledge those who have given their all through peaceful means to improve lives NOT the thugs and dissidents being paid by a freakish has-been leftover from WWII Nazi Germany to destroy.

If the United States has problems, then the United States will FIX them without any interference.  The greatest problem we have are libtards like the UN sticking their noses in world affairs that have nothing to do with their original purpose.  Frankly the UN is obsolete.  I am not saying that Black AMERICANS do not have honest complaints and issues.  I AM saying for the most part the “poor us, give me all to make amends” attitude sucks.  Having libtards fuel that mantra is why more has not been achieved.  Honest complaints and issues can be handled better by those involved, not those with long distance buttinski noses.

Do not expect a hearty” hail well met” nor a “bow and scraping” from US citizens.  OUR dollars have been flowing for decades into countries in Africa.  Our people have dedicated their lives and their blood to helping the African people. Our citizens have done any number of fundraisers to help Africans within the continent.

WHAT THE F@# HAVE YOU ACCOMPLISHED?  Clean Water?  Fancy Hospital Care for the entire continent? Food and water for the masses who are dying?  Negotiations and democratic governing? Bribery and rampant criminal activity eliminated?  

Look at the members of the board of this group – I dare you to find any AFRICAN Blacks on the list.  Those pictured were raised and educated outside of Africa in large universities and most are not fully black.  Where is the AFRICAN Blacks from Africa to represent themselves?  

 

MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS
YOU HAVE MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR CENTURIES OF WORK
TO FIX IN AFRICA!

    Uriel, you have knocked this one “out of the park” and beyond the parking lot!! Absolute great job!! Keep em’ coming!

    Uriel,
    Please do some “fact checking” on these (remember, I’m a pure analogue and feel lucky that I know how to email) 1 – there were over 3500 black slaves OWNERS and that comprised of over 100,000 slaves. 2 – the FIRST owner of black slaves was BLACK. This info comes from both black and white friends I have no reason to doubt. They are part of a group of history buffs but none has ever shown me the requirements to be a buff!

    In North Carolina 69 free Negroes were slave owners (6). In 1860 William Ellison was South Carolina’s largest Negro slaveowner. In Black Masters. A Free Family of Color in the Old South, authors Michael P. Johnson and James L. Roak write a sympathetic account of Ellison’s life.

    The first legal slave owner in America was black and he owned white slaves. Anthony Johnson (BC 1600 – 1670) was an Angolan who achieved freedom in the early 17th century Colony of Virginia. Johnson was captured in his native Angola by an enemy tribe and sold to Arab (Muslim) slave traders.

    What percentage of whites were slave owners?
    At the peak of black slavery in the South, only 6 percent of Southern whites owned slaves. If you include the white people in the North, it means that only 1.4 percent of white Americans owned black slaves at the HEIGHT of slavery. An estimated 3,000 blacks owned a total of 20,000 black slaves in the year 1860.

    Origin of African slave trade

    When did slavery begin in Africa?
    In Southern and Eastern Europe, Classical-style slavery remained a normal part of the society and economy and trade across the Mediterranean and the Atlantic seaboard meant that African slaves began to appear in Italy, Spain, Southern France, and Portugal well before the discovery of the New World in 1492.

    How is this for fact check.

      Wow. I had to approve my Own comment. Lol

    • Hardnox says:

      Excellent post Uriel, and excellent rant.

      It should be noted that there were tens of thousands of slaves in the North, both before and during the war.

      Further, less than 5% of all slaves arrived in the United States. The other 95% arrived in the Caribbean, Central and South America, If any country owes an apology to blacks it is Spain and Portugal. France, the Netherlands, and England did their fair share of profiting from the slave trade and fortunes were made. Ditto with the landed gentry whose descendants now live in luxury in New York City, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and the Hamptons.

      This UN bullshit is all it is. They set up these commissions, extort money from the USA, travel around in private jets, stay in 5 star hotels and resorts, submit reports, and accomplish nothing. Rinse and repeat.

      I am beyond tired of this crap. If the UN wanted to actually do something about slavery they could go after the countries that still practice it today.

    In point of order, the Blacks SHOULD be totally anti-Islam since the Arabs and specifically Muslims were the slave buyers and traders back in the olden days.

    TODAY

    Globally, the average cost of a slave is $90.
    Trafficking primarily involves exploitation which comes in many forms, including: forcing victims into prostitution, subjecting victims to slavery or involuntary servitude and compelling victims to commit sex acts for the purpose of creating pornography.
    According to some estimates, approximately 80% of trafficking involves sexual exploitation, and 19% involves labor exploitation.
    There are approximately 20 to 30 million slaves in the world today.
    According to the U.S. State Department, 600,000 to 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders every year, of which 80% are female and half are children

    The average age a teen enters the sex trade in the U.S. is 12 to 14-year-old. Many victims are runaway girls who were sexually abused as children.
    California harbors 3 of the FBI’s 13 highest child sex trafficking areas on the nation: Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego.
    The National Human Trafficking Hotline receives more calls from Texas than any other state in the US. 15% of those calls are from the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
    Between 14,500 and 17,500 people are trafficked into the U.S. each year.
    Human trafficking is the third largest international crime industry (behind illegal drugs and arms trafficking). It reportedly generates a profit of $32 billion every year. Of that number, $15.5 billion is made in industrialized countries.
    The International Labour Organization estimates that women and girls represent the largest share of forced labor victims with 11.4 million trafficked victims (55%) compared to 9.5 million (45%) men.

      One of the largest “individual” buyers of slaves is the Catholic Church. Which buys them under multiple pseudonyms (so the Muzzies don’t know who the purchaser actually is) and then frees them back into their home areas, or to safe areas if there is a probability of recapture.
