Riled by state-level voting law changes that it alleges are designed to suppress the political participation of people of color, the poor, the elderly, and the young, the NAACP is turning to the U.N. Human Rights Council for support.
National Association for the Advancement of Colored People president Benjamin Jealous and other association representatives plan to visit Geneva next week to address the HRC, a forum that frequently witnesses clashes between Western democracies and repressive states.

And, anyway... F the UN and the NAACP!
Lady, when the UN takes over America, we’ll all wish we were back in old south.
Deport all members of the NAACP back to Kenya -
All I can say is “The Bell Curve”
Stupid is as stupid does.
There is a part of me that hopes the UN does try and stick their nose into this. It might be the straw that breaks the camel’s back, in a PR sense, and we can at last get the US out of the UN, and get the UN the hell out of the US altogether.
