The SCLC’s recent research of the United Nation’s principle Treaties on Human Rights uncovered a ‘Secret Racial Policy”. The policy was created by the Senate treaty ratification comments that do not reflect support to end racial supremacy and discrimination in the United States.
The Senate’s ratification comments (secret racial policy) were provided in 1994 to the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination . The SCLC uncovered the ‘Secret Racial Policy) through extensive research of the United Nations (U.N.) Human Rights website and not through the U.S. State Department website. Per Reverend Harris, National Vice President SCLC, “Because African Americans were unlawfully removed from their country, they .have an international right to the aggressive elimination of racial supremacy and discrimination”. Sovereignty rights of all minority groups are covered by U.S. legal authorities except the sovereignty rights of African Americans.
The U.N. treaty requires the U.S. and other international states to create programs that would eliminate disparities and provide an avenue of redress for international issues. However, instead of fully supporting the U.N. Treaty to Eliminate Racial Supremacy and Discrimination, the U.S. Senate provided ratification comments that “created its own policy” and restricted access to the U.N. in human rights cases. The policy is significant because it means that the U.S. Court system is the final authority in civil rights and other issues that should be elevated to the United Nations for adjudication. Other countries fully embrace the treaty without restrictions, such as South Africa.
U.S. glass ceiling on EEO punishes victims and supporters under new u.s. senate treaty comments. United States Courts will not certify civil rights rulings under U.S. Senate’s “secret racial policy”, which hurts SCLC efforts.
While reviewing several court cases, the SCLC noted that civil rights rulings are not certified as issued by U.S. Judges. The United States’ unwillingness to certify civil rights court rulings and agency decisions along with the lack of sovereignty authority denies African Americans a basic right afforded to every other U.S. Citizen. African Americans do not have a sovereign right of international redress in race and discrimination court cases. But for the ratification policy, African American would be able to elevate civil rights legal issues to the United Nations. In an effort to get the U.S. Senate to change their secret racial policy and support the elimination of racial supremacy, the SCLC has sponsored five cases involving John Corbett, Ellen Dunn, Maude Dunn, Richard Oliver, and Al Simmons.
