    We Charge Genocide: The Historic Petition to the United Nations for Relief From a Crime of The United States Government Against the Negro People (1951)

    Introduction:

    Out of the inhuman black ghettos of American cities, out of the cotton plantations of the South, comes this record of mass slayings on the basis of race, of lives deliberately warped and distorted by the willful creation of conditions making for premature death, poverty and disease., It is a record that calls aloud for condemnation, for an end to these terrible injustices that constitute a daily and ever-increasing violation of the United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.

    We Charge Genocide: The cry rings true 52 years later


    Just over half a century ago, Paul Robeson and William L. Patterson, two giants of the struggle for African-American equality, delivered to the United Nations a petition titled “We Charge Genocide: The Crime of Government Against the Negro People.”

    Robeson was accompanied by signers of the petition Dec. 17, 1951, when he presented the document to a UN official in New York. The same day, Patterson, executive director of the Civil Rights Congress (CRC), which had drafted the petition, delivered copies to the UN delegates meeting in Paris.

    To make a long story short, very little in terms of what should have happen:

    The UN refused to acknowledge the Petition, the news media failed to report on the incident, the passports of Robeson and Patterson were revoked and the US government, all but totally ignored the Petition. It did resurface years later, with much of the same, compared to the little good it did accomplish.

    Here's a link to one of your posts I replied to, if you missed it, Ankh Meri Ra:
