UN’s Hypocritical Call for Reparations

Targeting the U.S. for slavery is absurd given the UN’s composition.

A new report out of the UN argues that the United States’ history of slavery justifies reparations for black Americans. The report states, “In particular, the legacy of colonial history, enslavement, racial subordination and segregation, racial terrorism and racial inequality in the United States remains a serious challenge, as there has been no real commitment to reparations and to truth and reconciliation for people of African descent.” The report points to recent police shootings of blacks as further evidence to support its conclusion that America is still a white-dominated racist society. According to the UN, “The dangerous ideology of white supremacy inhibits social cohesion amongst the US population.”

The report suggests that reparations could come in a variety of forms, such as “a formal apology, health initiatives, educational opportunities … psychological rehabilitation, technology transfer and financial support, and debt cancellation.” Interestingly, many of the mentioned reparations have already happened in various forms, but under the classification of “welfare.” And look how well that turned out

What’s ironic about this UN report is the fact that so many of the nations that make up the UN are currently practicing such things as enslavement, segregation, terrorism and various forms of racial supremacy. The history of the world is replete with examples of injustices far worse than any practice by the United States. But the more troublesome aspect of this report is its promotion of a blatantly racist and unjust ideology that would force the innocent to pay for injustice perpetrated by others in the past, simply due to a shared ethnicity. This report condones the very same kind of injustice and racism it purports to condemn.
