United Nations Special Rapporteur on contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance Doudou Diène has another mission on his visit to the United States, in addition to investigating contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance in the US Presidential election.
...Diène will also be looking into the dreaded scourge of “Islamophobia.” And he’ll have plenty of help from the usual merchants of victimhood.
The UN could have chosen from several missions:
The slaughter, rape and starvation of hundreds of thousands of innocents in Darfur.
Ongoing plagues, unrest and starvation in Somalia.
A spate of chaos, violence, radical extremism and rocket attacks against innocents in Hamas-controlled Gaza as Egypt keeps its border sealed to keep its Palestinian brothers out.
A continued humanitarian disaster in Myanmar as its fascist government prevents widespread aid operations from entering the country.
Thousands of displaced refugees in South Africa as immigrants flee ongoing violence due to rampant unemployment.
But those are trivial concerns when compared to the continued racism, discrimination, xenophobia and intolerance related to the U.S. Presidential election.
I think we can all give thanks that the United Nations and its Special Rapporteur -- Doudou Diène -- are on the case.
