We, the undersigned, propose that Dr. Rick Kittles be nominated for the Nobel Prize for his profound contribution to the field of genetic research.
Dr. Kittles, a 40-year-old geneticist descended from enslaved Africans, has earned this honor and recognition for his original DNA research and analysis that is repairing the effects of 450 years of slavery related ethnic cleansing committed against people of African descent. His unique method compares genetic sequences to restore ethnic and national identity -- two of the most fundamental human attributes.
Prior to Dr. Kittles\' groundbreaking work, this information was inaccessible to millions of descendants of enslaved Africans.
For using science to \"unlock the door of no return\", Dr. Kittles deserves the greatest honors and recognition the world has to offer.
We propose and support his nomination for the Nobel Prize.
The Organization of Tribal Unity (OTU) is a not-for-profit organization that links Africans in the Diaspora with their African ethnic groups for cultural education opportunities.
