President Joe Biden’s U.N. Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield told the National Action Network Wednesday the United States must reckon with its own supposed rampant white supremacy before lecturing other nations on the Human Rights Council.
Other nations on the council include China, currently engaged in Muslim genocide of the Uyghur people and Russia, currently jailing opposition activist Alexei Navalny.
“When we raise issues of equity and justice at the global scale, we have to approach them with humility,” Thomas-Greenfield said. “We have to acknowledge that we are an imperfect union, and have been since the beginning.”
Thomas-Greenfield vilified the nation she represents at the world forum as an irredeemably racist country rooted in white supremacy and minority oppression based on her family history of discrimination.
“I’ve seen for myself how the original sin of slavery, weaved white supremacy into our founding documents and principles,” Thomas-Greenfield said. “Racism is not the problem of the person who experiences it … Racism is the problem of the racist, and it is the problem of the society that produces the racist. And in today’s world, that’s every society.”
The chief U.S. representative to the United Nations had previously railed against America’s inherent racism less than a month ago, pledging her allegiance to the advancement of critical race theory as her focal point in office.
“Because black lives matter, we need to dismantle white supremacy at every turn,” Thomas-Greenfield told a UN meeting on International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination in March, pushing to elevate the racist doctrine of critical race theory as a secular religion. “Racism is endemic. It’s built in, like a rot in a frame, and it remains, and it festers, and it spreads because many of those in charge allow it to. Others look away and pretend it’s not there. But like a cancer, if ignored, it grows.”
