Have you read the UN report on Human Rights in the US?

The Obama administration has told the United Nations that America's human rights record is less than perfect but stressed that the U.S. political system has built-in safeguards that promote improvements.

In its first-ever report to the U.N. Human Rights Council on conditions in the United States, the State Department said Monday that some Americans, notably minorities, are still victims of discrimination. Despite success in reforming such inequities as slavery and the denial of women's right to vote, the department said, considerable progress is still needed.

"Although we have made great strides, work remains to meet our goal of ensuring equality before the law for all," it said.

The report noted that although the U.S. now has an African-American president and that women and Hispanics have won greater social and economic success, large segments of American society suffer from unfair policies and practices

  • Do I care what the anti US, UN has to say?

    No, when you look at some of the countries on the human rights counsel of the UN it doesn't say to much for them.

  • Yes, because China has such a stellar record when it comes to human rights. Educate yourself before you spout your ignorance.
