The Human Rights Abuse Report On The U.S.



Print page

In February, the United Nations released a report of North Korea’s human rights abuses. The report interviewed 320 people and concluded  that the country was committing human rights violations. North Korea responded that state media have been offering reports to the United Nations.

Last week, North Korea released its own human rights reports on the West. The  KCNA released an article titled “News analysis on poor human rights records in the United States“. It brought up points on racial discrimination, unemployment, surveillance and poverty. “The U.S. is the world’s worst human right abuser and tundra of a human being’s rights to existence,” the essay concludes.

The key points from the criticism:

  • “Under the citizenship act, racialism is getting more severe in the U.S. The gaps between the minorities and the whites are very wide in the exercise of such rights to work and elect.”
  • “The U.S. true colors as a kingdom of racial discrimination was fully revealed by last year’s case that the Florida Court gave a verdict of not guilty to a white policeman who shot to death an innocent black boy.”
  • “That’s why 52 percent of the Americans have said that racism still exists in the country while 46 percent contended that all sorts of discrimination would be everlasting.” 
  • “The U.S. is a living hell as elementary rights to existence are ruthlessly violated.” 
  • “At present, 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 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.'”
  • “Meanwhile, bills on easing arms control were adopted in various states of the country, boosting murderous crimes. As a result, the U.S. has witnessed an increasing number of gun-related crimes in all parts of the country and even its military bases this year. In this regard, the United Nations on April 10 put the U.S. on the top of the world list of homicide rates.”
  • “The U.S. also has 2.2 millions of prisoners at present, the highest number in the world. For lack of prisons on the part of the government, individuals are providing detention facilities to make money.” 
  • “A Russian TV said that in the U.S. the wealthy classes are now keen on the investment in providing private prisons for their high profit and so more people will be imprisoned.”
  • “Its chief executive, Obama, indulges himself in luxury almost every day, squandering hundred millions of dollars on his foreign trip in disregard of his people’s wretched life.”                                                                                                                       

In my opinion North Korean people and the media disliked the report and tried to defend N.K by making a propaganda list against the United States.  It is amazing how some people in the world such as North Koreans only know what their government tells them.   How do you stay informed of people’s different views on the world and the United States?
