This 2014 excerpt of the Washington Post, May 2, is by Adam Taylor.
“The Human Rights Records in US”, according to North Korea, brought up a number of points, including racial discrimination, unemployment, surveillance and poverty.
The gaps between the minorities and the whites are very wide in employment and voting.
Last year in Florida a Court gave a verdict of not guilty to a white man who shot to death a black teen.
An average of 300,000 people a week are registered as unemployed, but any proper measure has not been taken.
The housing price soared 11.5 percent last year than 2012 and 13.2 percent in January this year than 2013, leaving many people homeless.
The number of impoverished people increased to 46.5 millions last year, and one sixth of the citizens and 20-odd percent of the children are in the grip of famine in New York City.
All sorts of crimes rampant in the U.S. pose a serious threat to the people’s rights to existence and their inviolable rights. The number of mass shootings is rising.
The U.S. also has 2.2 millions of prisoners at present, the highest number in the world. Corporations are providing detention facilities to make money.
The U.S. government has monitored every movement of its citizens and foreigners, with many cameras and tapping devices and even drones involved, under the pretext of ‘national security.’
Ed. Notes: Wouldn’t it be nice if outsider critics could improve the performance of those who get criticized? For me, the worst abuse in the US is the cost of housing which is the cost of land. If Americans shared the value of land, life would be so much better in all the aspects noted above.
