A United Nations agency has assured an organization of black conservatives that it has no intention of investigating U.S. voter ID laws, as requested by the NAACP. In March, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) sent a delegation to Geneva, Switzerland, to tell the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights that because of voter ID laws passed in several of the 50 states, citizens were being denied the right to vote. But last week, Project 21 of The National Leadership Network of Black Conservatives sent a three-man delegation to U.N. headquarters in New York to refute the NAACP’s claims. Bishop Council Nedd II, a board member of Project 21, tells OneNewsNow some of the details of that delegation.
“We met with the assistant secretary general, and he was not even aware that the NAACP had met with their colleagues in Geneva on this issue. I think that tells you how seriously the U.N. is taking this particular issue,” he decides. “I think it’s very clear that the people in Geneva saw it for what it was: This is a non-issue.” Nedd says the bottom line is voter ID laws are a domestic matter, not an issue for U.N. oversight.
