Ferguson: American Society a Human Rights 'Graveyard' (Korea Central News Agency, North Korea)


The last country in the world in a position to criticize the human rights of others has issued this broadside against the United States over recent events in Ferguson, Missouri. The state-run Korea Central News Agency reports that an unnamed spokesman for the North Korean Foreign Ministry has taken the opportunity to criticize the U.S. State Department's annual report on the human rights around the world.

Pyongyang: On Tuesday, a Foreign Ministry spokesman issued the following statement in answer to a question put by KCNA in regard to the serious racial discrimination in the United States, which has sparked a worldwide public uproar:


Some days ago in Ferguson City, of the state of Missouri, a Black teenager was shot to death by a White policeman. Police ruthlessly cracked down on protesters, leveling their rifles at them and firing tear gas and smoke-emitting shells. Against this backdrop, another shuddering incident took place in another nearby city, in which a policeman shot another young Black man to death.


Indeed, the United States is a country that wantonly violated human rights, where people are subject to discrimination and humiliation due to their race, and are seized with horror since from one day to the next, any one of them could be shot to death.


The protests in Ferguson and other parts of the United States are an eruption of pent-up discontent and resistance of the people against the racial discrimination and inequality that are so deeply rooted in American society.

These cases again bring to light the human rights performance of the United States and underscore the urgent need to put the country in the dock of a human rights court.



Every year, the United States issues a report taking issue with "human rights performance" of other countries as if it were a global human rights judge. This time, however, the U.S. is itself disgraced and has become a global laughing stock.


The U.S. must sincerely accept the accusations of the broad international community and mind its own business, instead of interfering in the internal affairs of other countries.


Furthermore, it should not seek to resolve its problem by suppressing demonstrators, but instead bring to light the true picture of the American society, which is a graveyard for human rights, so as to come to a correct understanding of what genuine human rights are like and how they should be guaranteed.


The United States should realize that unless it behaves with discretion, it is bound to get itself into a big trouble.
