U.S. civil rights advocates aired their concerns about the recent Michael Brown shooting to the United Nations in Geneva, according to a press call from the organizations on Wednesday.

“This issue was front and center,” Hilary O. Shelton, director of the NAACP Washington Bureau, explained during the call.

According to Shelton, Trayvon Martin’s mother Sabrina Fulton and Jordan Davis’s father Ron Davis told their stories about losing their teenage children in shootings in each of the pre-briefings of the process.

“I think that everyone was outraged and horrified to hear that, yet again, it had happened in St. Louis, Missouri,” he said.

The group of activists presented to a U.N. panel in Geneva, Switzerland, documenting their concerns of U.S. compliance with the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (CERD) treaty.

The UN has no business what-so-ever interfering in this! This is a matter for this country, and this country alone, to handle! Screw the NAACP! They ae nothing but trouble makers and cause more harm than good!

TRUE AND THE UN HAS NO BUS HERE WE ARE A SOVEREIGN NATION THEY NEED TO GET OUT OF THE US

Bravo brother!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Useless Nations should be removed and the building used to house illegals while they are being readied for deportation or to house the homeless,that would save us billions a year 

Obummer should tell the UN to stay the hell out of Missouri business. The racist Obummer is looking for an excuse to invoke Marshall Law. BEWARE Americans. This could be happen soon. The racist Holder, Sharpton, and Jackson are encouraging the riots. Just like they did with the Martin case. Let the FBI finish their investigation and stop the riots. Arrest any and all lawbreakers, white or black.

But not the illegal aliens

love the way you think kiddu

Obummer believes in one world government and that is the UN.  He is trying to make us subservient to it and the NAACP knows it. 

Why don't the NAACP concern themselves with the thousands of black youth killing each other is such places as Chicago, NY, LA, etc.  Oh, that's right, they are all Democrat run cities in Democrat run states, let the killings continue rather than criticize Democrats for not doing their jobs.......

Get the USA out of the UN, and kick the UN out of the USA! PERIOD! They are NOT our friends, PERIOD!

Totally agree with you, Frank! Absolutely! The UN is about as useful as tits on a bull!

That does have a purpose. It shows that his offspring can provide for their young

   WTF! Is this something that was slipped by this Nation into the USELESS UN. The NAACP are a bunch of Race baiters just Like Jessie Jackson and The Rev, A. Sharpton.

OMG!!! Ruth Bader Ginsburg Voted Best Real-Life Hero At MTV Awards

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Monday was crowned the best real-life hero at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The 86-year old judge — whose 2015 biopic The Notorious RBG help cement her as a cultural icon among Liberals — beat out tennis star Serena Williams, WWE wrestler Roman Reigns, and comedian Hannah Gadsby to take him the award.

Though it wasn’t a clean sweep for Ginsburg last night.

The RGB documentary lost the “Best Fight” category for “Ruth Bader Ginsburg vs. Inequality” to “Captain Marvel vs. Minn-Erva.”

The justice was absent from the ceremony in Santa Monica, California.

Last December, Ginsburg had surgery to remove cancerous growths on her left lung. She was released from the hospital in New York four days later and recuperated at home.

Earlier this year, Ginsburg missed three days of arguments, the first time that’s happened since she joined the court in 1993. Still, she was allowed to participate using court briefs and transcripts.

Ginsburg has had two previous bouts with cancer, in 1999 and 10 years later.

Flashback: Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Pregnant Woman Is Not A ‘Mother’

Celebrated liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg argued in an opinion released Tuesday that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.”

“[A] woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother’,” Ginsburg wrote in a footnote, which in turn responded to another footnote in the 20-page concurring opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas in the Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc. case.

As Breitbart News’ legal editor Ken Klukowski reported, the case concerned a law signed by then-Governor (now Vice President) Mike Pence of Indiana in 2016, which required that the remains of an aborted fetus (or baby) be disposed of by cremation or burial. The law also prohibited abortion on the basis of sex, race, or disability alone.

The Court upheld the first part of the law, but declined to consider the selective-abortion ban until more appellate courts had ruled on it.

In his lengthy opinion — which delighted pro-life advocates, and distressed pro-choice activists — Thomas wrote that “this law and other laws like it promote a State’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics.” He traced the racist and eugenicist beliefs of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, and warned that the Court would one day need to wrestle with abortion as form of racial discrimination.

In a footnote, Thomas attacked Ginsberg’s dissenting opinion, which argued the Court should not have deferred to the legal standard used by the litigants in the lower courts, but should have subjected the Indiana law to a more difficult standard instead, since it impacted “the right of [a] woman” to an abortion.

Ginsburg cited no legal authority for her claim that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.” The claim that a fetus is not a child is central to pro-choice arguments.
