Do white people get sickle cell disease?

1.It is particularly common among people whose ancestors come from sub-Saharan Africa; Spanish-speaking regions (South America, Cuba, Central America); Saudi Arabia; India; and Mediterranean countries such as Turkey, Greece, and Italy. In the Unites States, it affects around 72,000 people, most of whose ancestors come from Africa. The disease occurs in about 1 in every 500 African-American births and 1 in every 1000 to 1400 Hispanic-American births. About 2 million Americans, or 1 in 12 African Americans, carry the sickle cell trait.
The below text is partially incorrect:
According to pubmed (a government run medical website) only 2 white people have been diagnosed with sickle cell. It was caused by a random mutation in their genes. For a white person to get sickle cell they must have a 1 in a trillion genetic mutation because there is no genetic history of sickle cell in white people. No genetic history of sickle cell means that it can not be inherited, it can only come from a mutation. Black people have much higher odds of having sickle cell because there is a genetic history of sickle cell in Africans. This means that it can be inherited from the parents. Sickle cell originated in three independent blood lines in Africa and one blood line in India 70,000-150,000 years ago. If you have sickle cell it means you are a descendent of one of these blood lines.
