UN Racism Experts Urge Changes to Eliminate Racial Bias
(
New York, March 7, 2008) The United States should immediately adopt UN recommendations to alleviate the widespread racial bias it found in the criminal justice system, Human Rights Watch said today.
The UNs Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination harshly criticized the US record on race after considering oral and written testimony submitted by the US government. In its conclusions issued today, the committee urged the US to rectify the stark racial disparities in criminal justice systems throughout the country.
