A United Nations working group visiting the United States walks away “extremely concerned about the human rights situation of African Americans,” members said in a preliminary report released Friday, in which they urged the US government to address the legacy of slavery with “reparatory justice,” a national human rights commission, and ongoing criminal justice reform.
Citing economic disparities, the working group noted that the lasting effect slavery has had on the African-American population.
What I don’t understand is why more is not said about the current state of slavery in the world today when there are more than 20 million, and an estimated 36 million people enslaved today!
