UN Wants Canada To Apologize, Pay Reparations For Black Slavery
The Daily Caller ^ | 09/25/17 | David Krayden

The United Nations Human Rights Council says Canada should apologize and pay reparations for slavery and other forms of “anti-black racism.” In a report released Monday, the U.N. advisory group stated: “History informs anti-black racism and racial stereotypes that are so deeply entrenched in institutions, policies and practices, that its institutional and systemic forms are either functionally normalized or rendered invisible, especially to the dominant group.”

The British empire had already banned slavery in 1834, and Canada had not become a self-governing dominion until 1867. Prior to its abolition, slavery was never widespread in British North America, although it was extensive in tropical colonies like Jamaica. When support for abolitionism grew in the northern U.S., Canada participated in the Underground Railway that moved escaped slaves out of Canada so that they could not be returned to their masters under the provisions of the Fugitive Slave Act.

Nonetheless, the UN says that contemporary Canadian racism “replicates the historical … conditions and effects of spatial segregation, economic disadvantage and social exclusion. It is important to underline that the experience of African Canadians is unique because of the particular history of anti-black racism in Canada,” suggesting that the government of Canada should “take concrete steps to preserve the history of enslavement and the political, social and economic contributions of African Canadians by establishing monuments in their honour.”

Another one of these concrete steps would be the addition of a new department of African-Canadian affairs to the federal government. The UN council recommends that it resemble the current federal department that serves “Indigenous Peoples.”

In the meanwhile slavery continues in Africa, the Middle East and Asia. The U.N. is silent about it.

I bet 100 to 1 Justin Trudeau is secretly behind this. I have no evidence, but just a gut feeling.

I wonder how many UN bureaucrats have unpaid or minimally paid servants.

And to whom will they make these payments?

THAT is the big question. I guess they want the money to get into the hands of people who will inject it into the economy. The need inflation, and they are pulling out all of the stops to get it.

The UN can lecture us, after they lecture Islam on slavery.

See, that’s why you don’t negotiate with terrorists. Canada paid off one terrorist and now the precedent is set. The Canadian people are worse off than the British. But, not by much. The UN is going off of the last pay off and Canada will be stupid enough not to say, “No!”

These people are certifiably insane.

Just another scheme to soak the tax payers for more.

They’re not breaking our backs fast enough.

This is the problem with the UN. They've expanded their scope to include the bathroom sink.

Back to keeping the scope dedicated to "Peace" and "Protection".

The UN also believes that 14 should be the legal permissive age for homosexuality.

And what of the African tribes that captured and sold their enemies into slavery?

Useless Nuts.

Next up, the UN agrees to sanction Israel, for something, again.

“In the meanwhile slavery continues in Africa, the Middle East and Asia. The U.N. is silent about it.”

Because the real issue is not slavery. The real objectives here are the same as with the feminazis, namely, the oppression and subjugation of the white man.

Unfortunately there are too many brainwashed liberal white men to realize they’re being played like a grand piano by these ‘victim’ groups.

Wouldn't be surprised if Canada succumbed to this idiocy, which is almost certainly an attempt to use it as leverage to apply pressure on the U.S. to do the same.

Gotta hand it to Libs/Progressives/Socialists -- they NEVER give up.

While I'm at it, a big middle finger to feckless, lying Republicans in our country who NEVER FOLLOW up.

My initial thought, also. Trudeau is taking Canada in the same direction the democRATS are taking America!

Colin Kaepernick, I suppose.
