Dear Mrs. Louise Arbour,
I am writing to the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights about a humanitarian holocaust happening against the American Indian descendants racially identified as black Americans living in their homeland called America.
The world is now aware of the hurricane that severely damaged the United States’, triggering the breakdown of the antiquated systems built to stop the flooding of the urban city called New Orleans. Currently, there are over 150.000 American Indian people racially identified as Black/Negro/African American people trapped in the flooded urban city of New Orleans and thousands of people are shelter less in three other states: Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. Over 50,000 American Indian/Negro/ black American people have perished because of the deliberate city planning of New Orleans placing the American Indian descendants/black American community’s in the flood plain for the levees sustaining the corporate development of New Orleans. ( please review www.gnocdc.org.)
The situation was compounded by the fact the U.S efforts towards the disaster relief did not include saving the lives of the American Indian descendants /black American people by not evacuating hospitals serving their communities or provide sustaining relief of food and water at the shelters used as a refuge by them from the rising waters. Over the last few days, American Indian descendants/ black American people have been forced into a survival situation forcing people to resort to acquiring what they need from the remaining resources left in the city.
Since the occurrence of this horrible disaster, the American Indian descendants racially identified as black Americans who have survived the flooding of their communities are now being referred to as refugees in America instead of U.S citizens, by the U.S.
The U.S. media reporting this national disaster started promoting the desperate actions of the surviving American Indian people racially identified as Negro/black Americans into “an urban war” conflict in New Orleans allowing the creation of a “military state” and diverting the focus from the lack of response by the U.S. government towards sustaining the viability of the indigenous American people trapped in the man-made disaster as a result from Hurricane Kristina.
As a result, the U.S sent in the U.S military for the purpose of actively protecting property, instead of life.
It is clear from its action, FEMA was not established to give assistance to the communities for American Indian descendants racially identified as Negro/ black American people destroyed as a result of a man-made disaster.
Historically, the American Indian descendants racially identified as black American race have been a marginalized population within the U.S that primarily remains isolated and invisible. Over the past generations, however, have been forced to assimilate in order to integrate into the U.S society. The integration process has stripped the people of their fundamental human right to their homeland.. As a result, over 80% live in poverty, with ethnic identity theft, cultural exploitation, discrimination, and environmental ethnocide. These acts by the U.S has created a perpetual slow decay for the race American Indian/Negro/black American collective ability to sustain their collective viability in the U.S.
It is a long-forgotten truth the remaining American Indians as the Negro/black American race collective in the U.S currently consist of over 34 million people. They live with the same or lower condition of poverty as many third world countries.
The media images currently being shown all over the world have finally exposed the truth and effects of generations of systematic genocide perpetuated against the remaining American Indian descendants by the U.S government for over 200 years.
The Office for the High Commission for Human Rights is well aware of the issues surrounding the perpetual genocide of the Indigenous races of people living in their lands under occupation by newly established governments. FIAAH has brought the situation of the American Indian descendants living under U.S jurisdiction to international attention and to your office previously.
Now that the horrible truth (by accident from the media) has been exposed we are requesting again for the Office of the High Commission for Human Rights to place the American Indian descendants racially identified as Negro/ black Americans peoples living under U.S. jurisdiction to be placed under “human rights watch”. We are also requesting the protection and assurance of all naturalized U.S citizens representing American Indian descendants who are under the racial identity of Negro/ Black Americans of their fundamental human rights to remain in their homeland. Further, we are requesting you to monitor and stop any international efforts undertaken by the U.S to remove the American Indians descendants/black American “peoples” to any off shore locations( including boats).
American Indian descendants racially identified as black Americans are not refugees from another land infiltrating into America: they are the Indigenous “ people’s” by heritage, belonging to America. They are therefore entitled to the fundamental Human right to receive all U.S. humanitarian aid agreed by international treaties ratified by the U.S towards sustaining their life and continued viability in their homeland.
We are requesting again for American Indian descendants racially identified as Negro/black Americans living under U.S jurisdiction to also be included in international discussions for poverty eradication agendas and placed under the same humanitarian considerations shown to third-world people living under conflict.
We at FIAAH are monitoring this situation closely, with great concern and we are fearful of the U.S government covert agendas and policies towards the completion of the eradication of the American Indian descendants refereed to as Negro /black American people’s. We are fully aware of the holocaust that will result if the escalation of the dehumanizing circumstances that are being created for the American Indian descendants/black American people is allowed to continue unabated, isolated and invisible.
It is unfortunate the American Indian descendants racially identified as Negro/black American people have not had in the past any governmental nor independent non governmental representatives to speak on their behalf for the issues concerning their People’s. FIAAH is established to fill in the vacuum by advocating for the rights and entitlements belonging to the American Indian descendants racially identified as Negro /black American peoples within the U.S jurisdiction.
We are willing to develop and support all international efforts toward implementation of viable solutions for creating avenues to rebuild the support systems needed to rebuild the American Indian people ability to sustain themselves collectively in the U.S
Thank you for reviewing this notice and we look forward to hearing your prompt response to this dire matter.
