Parents of Trayvon Martin, Jordan Davis Share Their Loss at the United Nations
Sitting in meetings in the United Nation’s ornate Wilson Palace by the shores of Lake Geneva in the shadow of the Alps seems an odd place to discuss racial discrimination in the United States.
But the problems of racial discrimination quickly hit home at an event earlier this week that hosted the parents of Travon Martin and Jordan Davis, two unarmed young black men killed by armed white men claiming to be acting in self-defense. Made all the more powerful as it came on the heels of the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., their affecting and often harrowing testimony immediately erased the distance between Switzerland and the United States. It made the discrimination present and underscored the importance of the work being done here at the U.N.’s review of the U.S. record of racial discrimination.
YASSS!!! The world needs call the US out on its shit!!!

Sahara Desert guitar gods Tinariwen.
NEW MUSIC: Tinariwen - Chaghaybou.
Another great single and video from the ImuhaghMalian collective.
"Chaghaybou" is the second song, and fourth single released, on and from their 2014 album "Emmaar" recorded in and around Joshua Tree National Park where the band fled after being displaced by the Imuhagh rebellion that occurred after the National Movement for the Liberation of Azawad declared Azawad independent from the Republic of Mali in April 2012.
