African nations seek scrutiny of US, others over racism

GENEVA (AP) — African nations have prepared a draft resolution at the U.N.’s main human rights body that singles out the United States and would launch unprecedented scrutiny of systemic racism against people of African descent in the wake of high-profile killings of blacks by police.  The draft text, a copy of which has been obtained by The Associated Press, could become a centerpiece of discussion in an “urgent debate” hastily scheduled for Wednesday afternoon in a session of the Geneva-based Human Rights Council.
