Dear Mr. President,
My name is General George of Bowman (ret), United States Army. I am a County Commissioner in Jefferson County, Alabama. Recently, a group of black farmers from all over the south came to my office asking for assistance. These farmers have been discriminated against and they possess legal documentation which will attest to that fact.
The Department of Agriculture administers a nationwide program which makes loans and subsidies to undercapitalized farmers at free or favorable terms. From the inception of this program black farmers have been denied loans and subsidies based on race.
The Department of Agriculture has willfully avoided resolving the thousands of complaints by these black farmers. Legal investigation has proven discrimination on the part of The Department of Agriculture with no meaningful resolve or outcome. The Department of Agriculture has failed to do anything regarding these complaints.
This nationwide pattern of discrimination against black farmers has deprived them of equal and fair access to assistance and consideration of their administrative complaints, resulting in substantial damage to their livelihood.
I ask on behalf of these black farmers that you assist them with the necessary aid via The Department of Agriculture to help save these farmers, families and communities.
Please see documentation attached.
General George F. Bowman (ret) U.S. Army
