Minorities right discrimination in United States 

Although the United States is a country that welcomes the famished, impoverished, and huddled masses of the world, it is also a country where the support of slavery led to one of the deadliest civil wars [1, 2].
In the US, the majority of social country clubs did not allow Jews to join until a handful did so in 2011. In official statistics, several racial and ethnic minorities have been and continue to be mostly “invisible.” Teaching in minority languages has generally been outlawed since 1916 [3, 4] .
The United States and international human rights have never had a smooth relationship. Due to its leadership in the League of Nations, a proposal for racial equality was rejected. None of the human rights conventions that would enable citizens to file private grievances have been signed or ratified by the United States [5, 6].
There is no national human rights legislation or enforcement apparatus, hence the community of the country cannot be guaranteed access to the entire spectrum of human rights commonly recognized in international law. Human rights, such as freedom of expression and peaceful assembly, are ensured by the Bill of Rights, which is made up of the first 10 amendments to the Constitution [7, 8].
Compared to 9.7% of African Americans, only 5.4 percent of white persons did not have access to health insurance. Since 1989, the wealth difference between the median Latino family and the median Black family has widened from $24,100 to $36,050 [9-11].
The Biden Administration has reestablished contact with the international community and vowed to promote human rights across the world. It is recognized that a nation’s capacity to project credibility in the domain of international human rights is directly impacted by the respect for human rights at home. Everyone with a UN Special Investigations Authority has been granted an open invitation by the United States [12, 13].
According to the U.N. Special Rapporteur on Human Rights, if we want to make America better for all Americans, a new contract for the twenty-first century is required. He claims that the United States requires a thorough infrastructure for human rights as well as legislation that calls for the creation of a national human rights authority [14, 15].
One of the most economically and socially disadvantaged minority groups in the US is that of African Americans. Additionally, they are most likely to experience hate speech on social media and to be imprisoned. Focusing on African Americans is justified by their different historical and social context, particularly in light of slavery [16, 17].
In summary, International human rights and the United States have never gotten along. Since 1916, minority language instruction has largely been prohibited. Only 5.4 percent of white people did not have access to health insurance, compared to 9.7% of African Americans. The wealth gap between the average Latino family and the average Black family has grown from $24,100 to $36,050 since 1989. It is appropriate to concentrate on African Americans due to their unique historical and social background, particularly in light of slavery. The majority of those who witness hate speech on social media and are incarcerated are African Americans. They are also more likely than whites to be socially and economically disadvantaged.
