Re: “'I just want them to stop ...'

This article makes me so angry! As a black woman it infuriates me that so many of us ARE NOT doing better to dispel the negative sterotypes that keep us from progressing as a race/culture. There is NO excuse for sexual harrassment or bullying ever. Some say its a normal part of growing up and that it builds character, because in the real world you will face similar adversities. But I say thats BULL@#%*! No kid should have to go through this at school. Survival of the fittest is for animals and should NEVER be used in the context of human behavior. Our minds and will are supposed to set us apart from animals. But so many of us continue to raise our kids with this mindset and its no wonder this behavior continues. But race is secondary to this issue. While they may want to make it about blacks vs hispanics, its important to note that kids all over the country get picked on regardless of their race. If the majority of the kids in a school are of a certain race, then most likely the bullies may be from said group who are the majority. Not all black kids behave this way! Bullying happens within all races whenever a kids basic principals of integrity and morality are lacking for whatever reason. LRSD needs to do better, and thats why so many are leaving for charter or private schools, including my kid.
