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.

I do know that is true . I was there . and they did not bother me . because I had my 12 gage pump standing up so it could be seen and boxes of amo on the dash . that crowd just opened up and let me through. me and my old brown pick up. with 19 inch tires. I went in and retrieved my wife from her job and we went home.Crazy ,? maybe but I did get my wife out of harms way and no P T C

While my deepest sympathies go out to Mr. Martin's family and Mr. Browns I must say I disagree with this action. 

I DO NOT support or acknowledge the existence of the UN.  Without U.S. infused money, the UN would fall.  The UN is also supported by the likes of Soros and the ultra rich who's Pollyanna view of life is more dangerous than the common person on the street knows.  If the US ratifies a UN agreement, it will override our Constitution and open the door for the UN to strip the 2nd Amendment and the UN would tell us how we are allowed to have guns. 

This matter, Martin/Brown, hopefully is being investigated by Officers who still understand to "Protect and Serve". 

false flag diversion at any cost, they want Marshall Law, everytime that fraud takes a vacation he makes sure he is far away all the actors in place, the Black Panthers  were there the pimp Al was there think, its getting to hot for that fraud so they will do anything to create a diversion, do you ya wana make a bet

You're 100% correct.

The NAACP has no honorable leadership now and basically are a Soros One World Order group. They do not support the black American or blacks around the world. They have become money dogs as the Marxist Democrats in our Senate! They have become, like all Soros defectives, anti-freedom all over the world!

did you see when the protesters went to the diamond districk to protest the Jews, they came out in droves overwhelmed the useful idiots and the ran fast, Mike you got that right we need to call eachother here on face books and phone numbers and strat making it clear enough is enough they are onlky 17% of the people in the US, so its about time we shut down our stores and leave work and make a statement, SHOUT OUT WERE MAD AS HELL AND WERE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE AND WE DON'T HAVE TO BE PAID TOI CARE FOR OUR COUNTRY BELIEVE ME THEY WILL BE SCARED AMEN!

Agreed, the U.N. has NO jurisdiction in the U.S. or U.S. Laws.  They are an Outsider Organization and CANNOT comment nor institute decrees in the U.S.  And, we are NOT a war-torn Nation where they can step in.  This is a Domestic affair and not an International query.

ALSO...

This WAS NOT a Racial incident. It was a person whom had NO RESPECT for the Law, and no respect for people whom jobs are to uphold the peace.

Just like the Trayvon-Martin case, the MSM, Democrats, the NAACP (Democrats) Black Panther and other groups want to make it Racial so they can get other illegal and unConstitional Laws passed.  They, like Obama, want to get rid of the document that guarantees Freedom and Liberty for Everyone in the U.S. who ARE "LAW ABIDING, LEGAL CITIZENS" of this Country no matter their ancestor's heritage and/or ethnic background.

You NEVER see the MSM report on Black people killing their own or innocent White People.  It only makes news IF it is a Black Sociopath whom gets killed either by someone presumed white, or if it involves Police trying to do their sworn duties..

And, have you ever notice:  Whenever there is a shooting or accidental killing of a supposedly "innocent" black person, the Leaders and Organizers of the Protest ALWAYS involve Looting and Burning the businesses and homes of people not even associated or involved with the incident.

Why is the Black Mentality always on Looting & Burning?  Is it because our Washington D.C. Elected Official are always giving them free money they (the Black Panthers and other leaders) think Looting is Part of the parcel of "Free Government Money?"

I remember the 1960's when Johnson (then Nixon) was in office this same type of Mental Attitude was encouraged by people like Farrakhan (a fake Muslim Imam) and other Low Life's with more mouth than Rational Thought.

Worse part, the Black Communities are only Hurting themselves by looting and burning.  It makes them look like the Animals they [the Black Communities] claim White think they are.  If they are making the image they are savages, then how can they expect "Civilized" People to take them seriously?

When the Black Communities and Leaders are always shouting Hate Messages, how do the Black Communities expect anyone to take them as Civilized People if they are acting Uncivilized?

I wish the Black Communities could see that their so-called leaders are only leading them down a path of hatred, destruction and injustice by instigating hate and rioting.  That these Leaders are really out for only THEIR own Self-interent and NOT for the Black Communities.

Remember, Martin Luther King Jr protested PEACEFULLY without the Rioting, Looting and Burning.  MLK Jr even said these acts would only hurt the black community.  I remember some of his speeches as my parents watched the news during his speeches.

Racism in the U.S. was at its lowest in the last 20 years until the Sitting President reignited the embers of hatred and fanned the flames of Racism by speaking out of turn before a complete investigation of the Trayvon-Martin could be fully performed.

Does NOT the Black Communities understand Obama wants Racism to be alive in the U.S. so he can call Martial Law?  Does NOT the Black Communities and the Leaders (like Sharpton and the Black Panthers) goal is to help Obama to achieve this goal?

I have many friends whom are black, but we never look at skin color.  We are friends because we are people who like the same type of discussions and other ideology of similar mind.  We transcend the borders which Our Political Leaders try to enforce on us.

Remember: Obama IS half White AND never grew up in the Projects, Ghettos or Inner Cities of the U.S.  So, he really doesn't know or understand the Black Community as he grew up in White Neighborhoods and in Muslim controlled Countries.  Which is why his ideology is Socialism and not American!

too bad the city of Chicago was left out.........everyone wants to blame the white people for everybodys problems in the united states and around the world. here in this country we have the black culture that has become dependent on the governments handouts...and does not want to take any responsibility for their actions. when young black men keep fathering children and take no responsibility for their actions...blaiming that on the white culture of priviledge does not work. Detroit was not a white man's fault..it was the fault of a democrat run city for over 60 years, that was corrupt and eventually ran the whites out of the city...and what is left is the results of year after year of those people voting for the same democrat party, and not willing to take responsibility for their problems.....it is so much easier to blame someone else on your problems...than face the truth in the mirror. in ferguson...many, many years ago it was a predominately white area...so the blacks started moving in from the cities, and brought the crime, the welfare and all of the problems....so the whites moved out...and what is left is ferguson today.....the blacks should spend more time on cleaning up their own lifestyle than blaiming others for their problems.

ALERT ALERT

Breaking — West Virginia Lawmakers Invite Persecuted Pro-Second Amendment Counties In Virginia To Join Their State

West Virginia lawmakers introduced legislation to invite persecuted pro Second Amendment Counties to join their state.

The West Virginia Senate adopted a resolution to remind Virginia residents from Frederick County that they have a standing invite — from 1862 — to become part of West Virginia.

West Virginia freedom fighters broke away from Virginia Democrat slave owners during the Civil War.

This week West Virginia has once again invited persecuted Virginia pro 2-A counties to come join their state.

Sounds like a winning plan!

Resolution 8 reads as follows:

HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION 8

(By Delegates Howell, Summers, Shott, Householder, C. Martin, Hott, Graves, Cadle, Barnhart, J. Jeffries, Maynard, Phillips, Foster, Hamrick, Steele, D. Jeffries, Wilson, Waxman, Bartlett, Paynter, Linville, Sypolt, Bibby, Hill, Ellington, Higginbotham, J. Kelly, Mandt, Pack, Dean and P. Martin)

[Introduced January 14, 2020]

Providing for an election to be had, pending approval of the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and a majority of qualified citizens voting upon the proposition prior to August 1, 2020, for the admission of certain counties and independent cities of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the State of West Virginia as constituent counties, under the provisions of Article VI, Section 11 of the Constitution of West Virginia

Whereas, The Legislature of West Virginia finds that in 1863, due to longstanding perceived attitudes of neglect for the interests of the citizens of Western Virginia, and a studied failure to address the differences which had grown between the counties of Western Virginia and the government at Richmond, the Commonwealth of Virginia was irretrievably divided, and the new State of West Virginia was formed; and

Whereas, Such division occurred as the Trans-Allegheny portions of Virginia perceived that they suffered under an inequitable measure of taxation by which they bore a disproportionate share of the tax burden; and

Whereas, That this perception was further compounded by the effects of a scheme of representation by which Trans-Allegheny Virginia was not allowed to have its proper and equitable share of representation in the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, That this arrangement arguably resulted in the tax dollars of Trans-Allegheny Virginia being used to enrich the Tidewater through internal improvements which did not benefit the people of Western Virginia, while the people of the Trans-Allegheny had little to no say in how their tax dollars were allocated; and

Whereas, Though this course led to an irreconcilable division, and the subsequent formation of West Virginia, yet, the longstanding peaceful cooperation between this State and the Commonwealth of Virginia is a sign that such separation, undertaken even under the most challenging and onerous of circumstances, can, with the passage of time, yield lasting results which are beneficial to both sides; and

Whereas, In the intervening years, the same neglect for the interests of many of the remaining counties of the Commonwealth of Virginia has allegedly been evidenced by the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, Particularly, many citizens of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont contend that an inequitable measure of taxation exists by which they bear a disproportionate share of the present tax burden of the Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont also believe that, currently, a scheme of representation exists by which the citizens of Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont do not have a proper share of representation in the government at Richmond; and, consequently

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont believe that their tax dollars are used to enrich the Tidewater and Northern Virginia through internal improvements which do not benefit the people of these other parts of Virginia, while the people of these other parts of Virginia have little to no say in how their tax dollars are allocated; and

Whereas, In recent days, these tensions have been compounded by a perception of contempt on the part of the government at Richmond for the differences in certain fundamental political and societal principles which prevail between the varied counties and cities of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, In the latest, and most evident, in this string of grievances, the government at Richmond now seeks to place intolerable restraints upon the rights guaranteed under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution to the citizens of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The Legislative body of West Virginia believes that this latest action defies the wise counsel which has come down to us in the august words of our common Virginia Founders: as the government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that tribune of liberty, Patrick Henry-who stated to the Virginia Ratifying Convention in 1788 that “The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of a Signer of the Declaration and premier advocate of American independence, Richard Henry Lee-who stated in The Federal Farmer that “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that zealous guardian of our inherent rights, George Mason-who stated that “To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of the declaimer of our independence and theoretician of our freedoms, Thomas Jefferson-who stated in his first draft of the Virginia Constitution, that “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms”; and

Whereas, The Boards of Supervisors of many Virginia counties and the Councils of many Virginia cities have recognized this dangerous departure from the doctrine of the Founders on the part of the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, These Boards of Supervisors and Councils have passed resolutions refusing to countenance what they affirm are unwarranted and unconstitutional measures by that government to infringe the firearm rights of Virginians; and

Whereas, The actions of the government at Richmond undertaken since the recent general election have, regrettably, resulted in unproductive contention and escalating a lamentable state of civic tension; and

Whereas, That, as has been proven in numerous instances, such as have been observed internationally in more recent times with the peaceful dissolutions of Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union, and the creation of South Sudan, or, earlier in Virginia’s own history, with the formation of Kentucky, the peaceful partition of neighboring peoples can occur, and, is often very beneficial to both sides in reducing tensions and improving the tenor of discourse over ongoing political and societal differences; and

Whereas, Article VI, Section 11 of The Constitution of the State of West Virginia explicitly permits additional territory to be admitted into, and become part of this state, with the consent of the Legislature and of a majority of the qualified voters of the state; and

Whereas, In a spirit of conciliation, the Legislature of West Virginia hereby extends an invitation to our fellow Virginians who wish to do so, to join us in our noble experiment of 156 years of separation from the government at Richmond; and, we extend an invitation to any constituent county or city of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the body politic of the State of West Virginia, under the conditions set forth in our state Constitution, specifically, with the consent of a majority of the voters of such county or city voting upon such proposition; and we hereby covenant that their many grievances shall be addressed, and, we further covenant with them that their firearms rights shall be protected to the fullest extent possible under our Federal and State Constitutions; and

Whereas, Providing that the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia shall give its assent to any county or independent city presently part of the Commonwealth of Virginia having the opportunity and ability to do so, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia.
