Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

A UN committee charged with tackling racism has issued an "early warning" over conditions in the US and urged the Trump administration to "unequivocally and unconditionally" reject discrimination.

The warning specifically refers to events last week in Charlottesville, Virginia, where the civil rights activist Heather Heyer was killed when a car rammed into a group of people protesting against a white nationalist rally.

Such statements are usually issued by the United Nations committee on the elimination of racial discrimination (Cerd) over fears of ethnic or religious conflict. In the past decade, the only other countries issued with early warnings have been Burundi, Iraq, Ivory Coast, Kyrgyzstan and Nigeria.

See how well you do without them. The US cannot go it alone. It has tried and failed in the past.
