“Dear
Santa: I would like to ask you sum[thing] but first Imma tell you about
me. Im a black African American … My favorite subject is math. I have 2

family. But anyway all I ask for is for safety. I just wanna be safe.”
In response, President Obama told Bryant that his safety is a priority to him, and that he would be “rooting” for the boy.
