African Americans endure ‘apartheid, ethnic cleansing’: Researcher

The United States has historically been a “racist” and white-dominated society where blacks endure “ethnic cleansing” and lack basic human rights, a researcher and historian in Washington says.

“It’s historic, America’s lack of judicial fairness, lack of justice, corruption and perversion of justice is not only documented, but it’s embedded,” said Randy Short, a member of the Black Autonomy Network Community Organization.

“The Dred Scott decision (1857) that declared no black could ever be a citizen of the United States… is essentially the guiding spirit of the legal system in the United States,” Dr. Short told Press TV on Wednesday.

“It’s unfair and it’s corrupt and blacks don’t have human rights,” he said. “The United States is a hypocritical, white settler society where Anglo Americans practice apartheid and eugenics, in particular against African Americans.”

Dr. Short said a grand jury’s decision on Monday not to indict a white police officer for the shooting death of a black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, shows that “America is a fraud.”

Thousands of people protested across the US for a second night on Tuesday after Darren Wilson was absolved for the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in August.

Mass protests erupted in New York, Los Angeles, Washington, DC, Oakland, Seattle, Boston and several other cities on Tuesday evening, as well as Ferguson itself where the shooting occurred.

“They’re killing our children and pushing mass abortion on our women…and pushing ethnic cleansing that they call gentrification,” Dr. Short said.

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, on Tuesday voiced concern over “institutionalized discrimination” and the “disproportionate” number of young African Americans being killed by police in the United States.
