UN’s Secretary-General confirms racial discrimination targets entire world

On the UN’S International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, the UN’s Secretary-General António Guterres, said that, “Racial discrimination is a deeply damaging and pervasive abuse of human rights and human dignity that affects every country.”

Guterres added that, “It is one of the most destructive forces dividing societies, responsible for death and suffering on a grotesque scale throughout history.”

He concluded that, “Article Two of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that everyone is entitled to all rights and freedoms without distinction of any kind. But as we mark the 75th anniversary of the Declaration, we are still far from realising equality in dignity and rights for all.”
