US Ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield on Friday called for the dismantling of White supremacy and for the world to "stand unified against this scourge" of racism.

"In so many of our communities and countries, racism is endemic. It's built in, like a rot in a frame. And it remains, and it festers, and it spreads because many of those in charge allow it to. Others look away and pretend it's not there. But like a cancer, if ignored, it grows," Thomas-Greenfield said during a UN meeting commemorating International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

Thomas-Greenfield mentioned America's history of slavery and legacy of White supremacy, acknowledging that "we have flaws. Deep, serious flaws."
