Despite President Joe Biden receiving 81 million votes, many people have found several faults with the current administration.
On Wednesday, Biden’s United Nations ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield trashed the United States in front of the world. According to her, America and its founding documents and principles have white supremacy woven into them.
“We immediately re-engage with the Human Rights Council and have announced our intention to seek election to that body so that we can advance our most cherished democratic values around the globe,” she began. “Of course, when we raise issues of equity and justice at the global scale, we have to approach them with humility. We have to acknowledge that we are an imperfect union and have been since the beginning.”
“Every day, we strive to make ourselves more perfect and more just in a diverse country like ours. That means committing to do the work. It means learning and understanding more about each other. It means engaging, trailblazing groups like yours to teach, to grow, to include, to improve. It means not forgetting our past or ignoring our present, but keeping both firmly in mind as we push for a better future,” she continued.
“I tried to do this recently in the U.N. General Assembly when I spoke on the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. That day — and commemoration — was personal for me. So I told the U.N. some personal stories,” she explained. “I told them how my great grandmother, Mary Thomas, born in 1865, was the child of a slave just three generations back from me. I grew up in the segregated South. I was bused to a segregated school. On weekends, the Klan burned crosses on lawns in our neighborhood.”
“I shared these stories and others to acknowledge on the international stage that I have personally experienced one of America’s greatest imperfections. I’ve seen for myself how the original sin of slavery weaved white supremacy into our founding documents and principles,” the ambassador said.
“But I also share these stories to offer up an insight, a simple truth I’ve learned over the years — racism is not the problem of the person who experiences it. Those of us who experience racism cannot and should not internalize it, despite the impact it can have on our everyday lives,” she concluded.
So, according to the ambassador, in order to have America join the UN’s Human Rights Council, we must first acknowledge that our forefathers’ “sin of slavery weaved white supremacy into our founding documents and principles.”
Why do the Democrats trash the country they serve, instead of lifting it up and enabling it to reach greater heights?
