Letter to the President Regarding White Americans

The Honorable Barack Obama
President of the United States
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C. 20500

Dear Mr. President,

As an American Indian, I write to inform you of the danger white Americans pose to the United States in the wake of the deadly terrorist attack in Paris.

Further, I - and millions of Americans of color - implore you to halt the interstate movement of white Americans in the United States. White “Americans” appear to be the primary source of fatal attacks in the United States of America. American humanitarian compassion could be exploited to expose Americans of color to repeated deadly danger. The reasons for such concerns are plentiful.

The federal government does not have the background information nor the desire that is necessary to effectively conduct proper security checks on all white Americans since they are too focused on Muslims, president of Law Enforcement Legal Defenses and former assistant director of the FBI Ron Hosko explained: "'There has certainly been a tremendous concentration — not just by FBI and law enforcement, but intelligence community intelligence — focused on both the foreign born and the homegrown Islamic extremist terrorist threats, [a]nd you’re talking about people in the military, intelligence, all the alphabet soup agencies as well as local law enforcement.” Because of this, violent white Americans are not vetted properly as New America program associate David Sterman declares: “[I]n the Dylann Roof case, in the Charleston attack, you do see that he is leaking quite a bit of information to people around him about his view point and his desire to commit violence.” Despite the amount of readily available information, Dylann Roof was still able to commit his terroristic act on American soil.

The threat posed to Americans of color by white Americans is very real. A study by New America claims that since 9/11, “nearly twice as many people have been killed in the United States by white supremacists and anti-government radicals than by Muslim jihadis.” For example, white supremacists claimed credit for massacres of people of color in the wake of 9/11. Wade Michael Page murdered six Sikh’s at a temple in Wisconsin for no other reason than who they were, which he mistook for being Muslim.

Given the tragic attack in Paris and the threats we have already seen in America, coupled with the former assistant FBI director's acknowledgment that we do not have the information necessary to effectively vet all white Americans, the United States of America cannot participate in any program that will result in the free, interstate movement of any white American - any one of whom could be connected to terrorism - being allowed to terrorize America. Effective today, I am urging each state to not participate in the travel or settlement of any white Americans in the United States of America. And I urge you, as President, to halt any plans to allow white Americans to travel or settle anywhere in the United States. Neither you nor any federal official can guarantee that white Americans will not be part of any terroristic activity. As such, opening our door to them irresponsibly exposes our fellow Americans of color to unacceptable peril.
