America, Asian, and Community: MESSAGE FROM THE FATHER OF MOLLIE TIBBETTS The person who is accused of taking Mollie's life is no more a reflection of the Hispanic community as white supremacists are of all white people. To suggest otherwise is a lie. Justice in my America is blind. This person will receive a fair trial, as it should be. If convicted, he will face the consequences society has set. Beyond that, he deserves no more attention. To the Hispanic community, my family stands with you and offers its heartfelt apology. That you've been beset by the circumstances of Mollie's death is wrong. We treasure the contribution you bring to the American tapestry in all its color and melody. And yes, we love your food. My stepdaughter, whom Mollie loved so dearly, is Latina. Her sons _ Mollie's cherished nephews and my grandchildren are Latino. That means I am Hispanic. I am African. I am Asian. I am European. My blood runs from every corner of the Earth because I am American As an American, I have one tenet: to respect every citizen of the world and actively engage in the ongoing pursuit to form a more perfect union. Given that, to knowingly foment discord among races is a disgrace to our flag. It incites fear in innocent communities and lends legitimacy to the darkest, most hate-filled corners of the American soul. It is the opposite of leadership. It is the opposite of humanity. It is heartless. It is despicable. It is shameful. https://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/opinion/columnists/2018/09/0 1/mollie-tibbetts-father- common-decency-immigration-heartless-despicable-donald-trump-jr-column/ 1 I 631 3 1 002/ A Message From the Father of Mollie Tibbetts
America, Asian, and Community: MESSAGE FROM THE FATHER
 OF MOLLIE TIBBETTS
 The person who is accused of taking Mollie's life is no more a
 reflection of the Hispanic community as white supremacists are of all
 white people. To suggest otherwise is a lie. Justice in my America is
 blind. This person will receive a fair trial, as it should be. If convicted,
 he will face the consequences society has set. Beyond that, he
 deserves no more attention.
 To the Hispanic community, my family stands with you and offers its
 heartfelt apology. That you've been beset by the circumstances of
 Mollie's death is wrong. We treasure the contribution you bring to
 the American tapestry in all its color and melody. And yes, we love
 your food.
 My stepdaughter, whom Mollie loved so dearly, is Latina. Her sons _
 Mollie's cherished nephews and my grandchildren are Latino. That
 means I am Hispanic. I am African. I am Asian. I am European. My
 blood runs from every corner of the Earth because I am American
 As an American, I have one tenet: to respect every citizen of the
 world and actively engage in the ongoing pursuit to form a more
 perfect union.
 Given that, to knowingly foment discord among races is a disgrace to
 our flag. It incites fear in innocent communities and lends legitimacy
 to the darkest, most hate-filled corners of the American soul. It is the
 opposite of leadership. It is the opposite of humanity. It is heartless.
 It is despicable. It is shameful.
