President Biden's recently approved U.N. Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield blasted America's founding documents as having "white supremacy" woven into them and their principles.
While speaking to Al Sharpton's National Action Network, Thomas-Greenfield praised the Black Lives Matter movement, saying that it made her feel "hopeful," despite America being an "imperfect union…since the beginning."
Regaling the audience with stories of growing up in the segregated south and having the Ku Klux Klan burn crosses on the lawns of her neighborhood, Thomas-Greenfield said that she has told others on the international stage that she has "seen for [herself] how the original sin of slavery weaved white supremacy into our founding documents and principles."
In her speech, the ambassador asserted that racism is not the problem of the victim, but of the racist.
"And it is the problem of the society that produces the racist," she added.
Thomas-Greenfield said the U.S. is far from the only country with racial problems, accusing China of racial genocide.
"Racism was and continues to be a daily challenge abroad," Thomas-Greenfield said. "And for millions, it's more than a challenge; it's deadly. Like in Burma, where Rohingya and others have been oppressed, abused, and killed in staggering numbers. Or in China, where the government has committed genocide and crimes against humanity against Uyghurs and members of other ethnic and religious minorities."
