UN shuns reparations?

When the United Nations convenes the Conference Against Racism next month, the right, just calls for rectifying the most racist, atrocious act against any people will not be on the agenda.

According to Bloomberg.com, references to reparations for slavery have been cut from a draft declaration for the conference, all to entice U.S. and European Union participation.

In addition to references to reparations for slavery, according to reporter Bill Varner, U.S. and European envoys objected to criticism of Israel and expressions of concern about defamation of religion.

The United Nations Conference Against Racism is scheduled for April 20-24.
