It is appalling that UN Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield would smear America in front of some of the worst human rights violators on the planet. What a propaganda win for the CCP. Thomas-Greenfield’s speech was at an event hosted by the National Action Network, founded by the Rev. Al Sharpton, one of the worst race-baiters in the United States.

WATCH: Biden’s UN Ambassador: ‘White Supremacy’ In America’s ‘Founding Documents And Principles’
By Daily Wire, April 15, 2021
President Biden’s UN Ambassador, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, told the National Action Network, founded by the Rev. Al Sharpton, that “the original sin of slavery weaved white supremacy into our founding documents and principles.” She also championed Black Lives Matter, saying, “I remain hopeful in part because of the influence and the insistence of organizations like yours. Just look at the way [the] Black Lives Matter movement spread this past summer.”
Saying it was “so important to engage on a global scale,” Thomas-Greenfield called for “recommitting to multilateral institutions”:
If we go it alone and retreat from the world, then we let existing inequalities fester. But if we engage, then we can push for change and demand justice. That’s why under President Biden’s leadership, we’ve been restoring our alliances and recommitting to multilateral institutions. We rejoined the World Health Organization because we believed we can make the WHO smarter, nimbler, and more just by rolling up our sleeves and getting involved. We proudly rejoined the Paris Agreement because the only way to reverse the effects of the climate crisis is to join forces. And we know that if we don’t act, poor communities and communities of color, especially in the Global South, will suffer the most. And we immediately [reengaged] with the UN Human Rights Council and have announced our intention to seek election to that body so that we can advance our most cherished democratic values around the globe.
Then she said America was an “imperfect union” and has “been since the beginning”:
Of course, when we raise issues of equity and justice at the global scale, we have to approach them with humility. We have to acknowledge that we are an imperfect union and have been since the beginning. And every day we strive to make ourselves more perfect and more just. In a diverse country like ours, that means committing to do the work. It means learning and understanding more about each other. It means engaging trailblazing groups like yours to teach, to grow, to include, to improve. It means not forgetting our past or ignoring our present, but keeping both firmly in mind as we push for a better future.
Segueing to personal experience, she then opined that “the original sin of slavery weaved white supremacy into our founding documents and principles”:
I tried to do this recently in the UN General Assembly when I spoke on the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. That day and commemoration was personal for me. So I told the UN some personal stories. I told them how my great-grandmother, Mary Thomas, born in 1865, was the child of a slave, just three generations back from me. I grew up in the segregated South; I was bused to a segregated school. On weekends, the Klan burned crosses on lawns in our neighborhood. I shared these stories and others to acknowledge, on the international stage, that I have personally experienced one of America’s greatest imperfections. I’ve seen for myself how the original sin of slavery weaved white supremacy into our founding documents and principles.
In 1852, the great orator Frederick Douglass, who had been a slave, addressed America’s founding documents like this as he spoke to the citizens of his hometown, Rochester, New York.
