The United Nations Human Rights Council is gearing up for a discussion about police brutality and racism in America. According to reports Monday, the conversation will take place Wednesday following a request from from more than 50 African nations.

The announcement came along with a statement signed by the head of the World Health Organization, Tedros Ghebreyesus, who called on the United Nations to “dismantle racist institutions.”

“We got a request from the African group to have an urgent debate in the follow up to what happened in America with George Floyd and the whole tragedy, which showed the problem of racism, of police violence and the follow up to that,” said Elisabeth Tichy Fisslberger, President of the UN Human Rights Council.

In 2018, Africa recorded the highest rate of modern day enslavement in the world, where certain nations refer to it as an institutionalized practice.

  1. BLM is a racist organization, that only cares about black lives when a white person kills a black man.

  2. Where is the punch-line to this joke?

    There is MORE police brutality and racism in Africa than there is anywhere else. Time for the blacks to stop all this whining and belly aching. Also, Islam is another lover of slavery and brutality.

  4. Obama stole 700,billion from social security and Medicare. An stole billions more while in office.

  5. Obama/Soros has made this a worldwide effort to destroy America with their mental illness followers. Wiretap russia collusion, his presidency. They will never stop. Obama is still in control of the Democrats, with all that money he stole from social security.

  7. Maybe it’s time for us to pull out of the UN altogether.

    • ITA!!! It is time for the US to kick the UN to the curb!

      BTW OANN, this new format SUCKS!!!

  8. But they ignore the wholesale killings in africa and the middle east. Those two places make all homicidess in the USA infintesimal. Or mexico with far more killings than the USA. But we seem an easy target to the globalist foreigners.

  9. This new comment platform is sick!! bs!

    • I know, why the heck do OANN change it? I miss my friends posting on here. Filling out this form for every single post is a PITA!

  10. If I leave a comment it goes away . Why?

  11. we need to disband the worthless human rights council,then defund the anti american un,and kick them off us soil.

  12. Wow, so the 57 Muslim states who actually still own slaves, long with many other slavery is ok countries, will discuss America’s racism now that we no longer have a duly elected black president or slavery.

  13. Yes africa who in a lot of parts that still practices slavery should have a say. Not to mention the UN has no right to dismantle anything in the U.S.
