Racial Discrimination | The grossly disproportionate impact of Covid-19 on blacks, browns and natives, connected to long-standing disparities in health, education and economic status, has revealed the lasting effects of past overtly racist laws and policies and ongoing impediments to equality.

The United States continues to violate human rights in terms of racial justice, with injustices increasing with the impact of the covid-19 pandemic, accuses the organization Human Rights Watch (HRW) in its annual report released today.

“The United States continues to fail to meet its human rights commitments, particularly in the area of racial justice, as evidenced by the country’s failure to end systemic racism linked to the legacies of slavery.” report says.

Racial Discrimination

Racial Discrimination In Ethnic minorities, report adds, remains subject to “abusive structures of incarceration, immigration surveillance and social control”, in addition to maintaining economic inequality between Blacks and Whites, which even registered “a slight increase” in 2021.

In the report, which analyzes the human rights situation during the year 2021 in about 100 countries, HRW concludes that Covid-19 “deepened existing racial injustices in health, housing, employment, education and the accumulation of wealth” of black communities. , Latinos and Native Americans.

These communities “have been disproportionately burdened by the negative impacts” of the pandemic, he adds.

The report highlights that the poverty in these communities has registered “a general decrease, due to financial stimulus and unemployment assistance”, but that the “wealth gap between blacks and whites is still as great as it was in 1968”.

In addition, “hate crimes against people of Asian descent and people of color increased significantly in 2021 compared to 2019 levels,” HRW underlines.

Still, the organization admits that the United States has taken “positive steps on human rights” over the past year, with President Joe Biden’s administration and Congress “advocating the rights of women and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender people.” and intersex people, who were weakened during the previous administration”.

This improvement confirms the hopes advanced by HRW in the report for the year 2020, when it considered that Donald Trump’s four years as President of the United States had been “a disaster” for human rights and expressed hope for a paradigm shift with Biden.
In addition, “hate crimes against people of Asian descent and people of color increased significantly in 2021 compared to 2019 levels,” HRW underlines.

Also in this matter, racial discrimination is noted, the organization indicates, noting that “despite some reductions in the incarceration rates of Black people, this community continues to be the vast majority in prisons”.

Prisons, criticizes HRW, “failed to provide sufficient protection against Covid-19 infection” and “one third of all prisoners contracted the virus, with more than 2,700 dying”.

Furthermore, the Biden administration has also been a disappointment to HRW when it comes to migration policies. ”, says the report.

The Biden administration expelled more than 750,000 migrants citing public health reasons. These expulsions mainly affected Blacks, Natives and Latinos, particularly from Central America, Africa and Haiti, who, according to HRW, were the target of “discriminatory treatment”.

The expulsions “have put migrants in danger, with thousands being subjected to kidnappings, rapes, assaults, extortion and other abuses”, the organization points out.

Lately, tthere has been an increase of Police Killings as well as fatal crimes against the Black community which ended with the deaths of the victims. That is the case with :

  • Stanley Davis Jr killed by a white police officer chasing him.
