The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, called on the American authorities to combat the systematic racism practiced by state institutions, and to translate their statements in this regard into actions on the ground.
In a speech delivered during the 45th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council, which opened Monday in Geneva, Bachelet indicated that the failure to bring to justice the police responsible for their past murders "confirms the gravity of the crisis" facing the institutions of power in the United States.
She added that the two incidents of police shooting of African-American Jacob Blake in Kenosha, and the recent killing of Daniel Bond by the police in Rochester, confirms the need for urgent and profound measures to be taken to combat systemic racism and racial discrimination practiced by security institutions and in society. .
And she continued, "Municipal and police authorities have issued numerous statements about the necessity of reform following the killing of George Floyd in May, including by the security authorities in Kenosha.
These words must be consistent with real changes for African Americans to feel that the state and security institutions protect them.

The American company "Nvidia" acquired the British chip design company, "Arm Holdings", for an amount of about $ 40 billion.
Nvidia, the largest US chip maker by market value, and ARM, said on Monday that Oli will buy a British chip designer from SoftBank Group for $ 40 billion in a deal that will reshape the global semiconductor industry.
The deal is expected to put a vital resource for Apple and many other companies in the sector under the control of a single player, and it is likely to face opposition from regulators and Nvidia's competitors.
As for SoftBank, the deal is an early exit from ARM, which it had bought just 4 years ago for $ 32 billion, according to Reuters.
The deal includes $ 21.5 billion in shares, and Nvidia will pay Softbank $ 12 billion in cash, including two billion when signed.
Under the deal, SoftBank and the $ 100 billion Vision Fund, which has a 25 percent stake in ARM, will get between 6.7 and 8.1 percent in Nvidia.
Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang said the deal, which boosts the data center chips sector in his company, supports competition, adding, "The industry will see, for the first time in its history, a real alternative to Intel Corp's dominance of the sector."
With the prospect of opposition looming, Huang said he would maintain ARM's neutral licensing model and expand it by granting Nvidia IP licenses as well for the first time.
It is noteworthy that the British company does not produce the chips, but rather sells licenses for the technology used to manufacture them.
Arm licenses its chip designs and technology to customers including Qualcomm, Apple and Samsung Electronics, and Apple's next Mac computers will use ARM chips.
Huang said the deal would not subject Aram to US export restrictions.
The deal requires regulatory approvals from Britain, the United States and China, and may be subject to strict scrutiny in China, where hundreds of companies, including Huawei, use ARM technology.
The deal to buy the Arm is expected to be completed in March 2022.

"The European Union condemns this execution in the strongest terms," a European Commission spokesman, Peter Stano, said in a statement.
"Human rights remain an essential component of our engagement with Iran. We will continue to communicate with the Iranian authorities on this issue (...) in addition to the separate issues," AFP quoted Stanoe as saying.
Analogous to this last execution
The European official affirmed that "the European Union opposes the death penalty in all circumstances and cases without exception."
"This is a brutal, inhuman punishment that does not have any deterrent effects and represents an unacceptable annulment of human dignity and integrity," he said.
The London-based Amnesty International saw the "secret execution" of my ideas on Saturday as "a horrific farce of justice that needs immediate international action."
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo condemned the execution, which he considered "brutal."
