Paper Genocide is the deliberate and systematic destruction of Native American Indian culture, language, and identity as a unique racial group by way of the illegal and oppressive race reclassification imposed on Native American Indians or "Blood Indians" to the Non-Indian races of Black/African American, White, or Latino/Hispanic. With the stroke of a pen, or the click of a mouse Native American Indian ancestry can be suppressed on government records.

*The United states Supreme Court struck down Walter Plecker's Racial Integrity Act in 1967 within Loving v. Virginia

Argued: April 10, 1967, Decided: June 12, 1967, 206 Va. 924, 147 S.E.2d 78, reversed. this make race reclassification illegal, and states that do so are breaking supreme law.
Did you know that paper genocide is when vital records offices along the east coast of the U.S. changed the race of many American Indians to Colored on birth and death certificates in order to suppress Indian heritage?
