We, the undersigned, propose that Dr. Rick Kittles be nominated for the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, for his profound contribution to the field of genetic research.
Dr. Kittles, a 40-year-old geneticist descended from enslaved Africans, has earned this recognition for his original DNA research and analysis that is repairing the effects of 450 years of slavery related genocide against people of African descent. His genetic research has the ability to unite people in one of the most critical ways known to man -- the basis of shared ethnic and national identity. Prior to his work, this was impossible for the billions of descendants of enslaved Africans living in the Diaspora.
For his part in unlocking the \"door of no return\" for so many, and for creating the scientific method to undo the effects of ethnic cleansing committed by so many nations against people of African descent, Dr. Kittles deserves the Nobel Prize -- one of the greatest honors and recognition the world has to offer.
The OTU is a not-for-profit organization established to create a network of those who have restored their African ethnic and national identities.
