Now the United Nations is stepping in after the portrayal in our country is being painted clearly. There is a real crisis going on in America and it stems from our roots!

 In a new study the UN reveals the direct correlation between today’s police brutality against African Americans and the mass lynchings of Blacks in the 19th and 20th centuries in America. The United Nation’s Working Group of Experts on People of African Decent will be examining this new report in front of the U.N Human Rights Council on Monday (Oct. 3). The study illustrates the riveting similarities between the effects of what’s currently taking place in Black communities across the USA where the death tole of individuals wrongfully being executed by police is at an all time high to the effects the major lynchings that took place in late 1800’s and early 1900’s. We are seeing the same psychological effects repeat themselves. In particular the level of heightened “trauma and grief felt by the black community” is a mirror image according to the Huffington Post.

This real yet stifling correlation by the UN Working Group addresses American History in essence:

 “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. Impunity for State violence has resulted in the current human rights crisis and must be addressed as a matter of urgency.”

Furthermore this new report draws the clear indication that the American justice and policing system was created for Blacks to fail. As highlighted by the Huffington Post it is unethical to have police departments conduct investigations on their own in regards to these injustices. Ending this practice is the first and most vital step towards substantial reform.

We are now are turning the page to examine what needs to be done in a country where the truth about racism is embedded in its roots. On the ground stills lays inequality and irrational treatment of people of color is that continuous and has yet to be confronted in a way that’s detrimental to our society.
