Van Jones the environmental jobs adviser to United States President Barack Obama, has resigned after what he calls a smear campaign against him.

It had recently been brought to light that Jones had signed a petition in 2004 that stated the U.S. government was behind the 9/11 attacks and that only “white suburban boys” shot up schools like Columbine High school where in 1999, two boys shot and killed 13 people, then themselves while injuring a dozen others.

“You’ve never seen a Columbine done by a black child. Never. They always say, ‘We can’t believe it happened here. We can’t believe it’s these suburban white kids.’ It’s only them. Now, a black kid might shoot another black kid. He’s not going to shoot up the whole school,” said Jones in 2005.
