(d)   Article 2(1)(d) requires each State Party to "prohibit and bring to an end, by all appropriate means, including legislation as required by the circumstances, racial discrimination by any persons, group or organization." 

As indicated above, governmental policy at all levels reflects this undertaking, and there are many different mechanisms, including litigation and legislation, through which this important goal is being achieved by the United States.

As discussed in the context of the United States' reservations, understandings and declarations above, there are important constitutional limits on the permissible reach of governmental regulation in the United States. For the reasons articulated in that discussion above, the United States conditioned its ratification on a formal reservation stating that, to the extent the Convention calls for a broader regulation of private conduct than permissible under U.S. law, the United States does not accept any obligation under this Convention to enact legislation or take other measures under paragraph (1) of Article 2, subparagraphs (1)(c) and (d) of Article 2, Article 3 and Article 5 with respect to private conduct except as mandated by the Constitution and laws of the United States.
