U.N. Backs Up The Black Lives Matter Group - Demands The U.S. Do This

A United Nations panel put out a study saying that black people are in the U.S. should be compensated for a history of 'racial terrorism.' The recommendations are not mandates, however, and it's unlikely that any compensation will be provided.

The High Commissioner on Human Rights organization, a U.N.-affiliated group, consists of a panel of experts and attorneys from around the world. The panel published a document entitled, "United Nations' Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent."

According to the document, issues such as slavery, segregation, inequality, recent police shootings of black men and 'racial terrorism' in U.S. history continue to challenge black people today. The document reads that 'there has been no real commitment to reparations and to truth and reconciliation for people of African descent.'

European countries are also being called out for reparations due to slavery, genocide and racial laws that went on for over two centuries. The impact reportedly still is felt by people of Caribbean nations.

The panel recommends that reparations take the form of 'a formal apology, health initiatives, educational opportunities ... psychological rehabilitation, technology transfer and financial support, and debt cancellation.'
