    Iranian's president as expected used a U.N. conference on racism to lash out at the U.S. and Israel -- at one point calling the Holocaust a "pretext" for aggression -- but that didn't stop some groups, including the Congressional Black Caucus, from criticizing the U.S. for boycotting the meeting.

    Human Rights Watch and the U.S. African Chamber of Commerce were among the other groups that said the United States and other nations that opted not to attend made the wrong move. They said they regard the summit as a legitimate avenue for addressing racism globally.

    "This is a missed opportunity, plain and simple," the CBC said in a written statement.

    No point in going to a meeting when you know what it'll be about. In this case, it's a UN-sponsered Israel Bash Fest

    I guess thats the kind of thing that happens when a state is, in fact, hinging it's ethnic (jewish) dominance on racist state polices. Hey, remember when South Africa was similarly unimpressed by the exact same criticism?

    America is probably the LEAST racist place on the planet.

    Not that we don't have plenty of racism, but compared to other places?

    We're THE freaking the bastion of liberalism.

    The rest of the world can go bite my liberal white ass.

    and that should be no surprise to anyone given the history of the U.N. on the issue.

    perhaps they should clean their own house and deal with the racism in Iran, Saudi Arabia and Syria first.
