A group of bullies drove a nine year old black girl to suicide due to her friendship with a white family. The Daily Wire reports:
A nine-year-old black girl from Alabama, who was allegedly bullied by her fourth-grade classmates for being friends with a white family, committed suicide.
On December 9, McKenzie Adams was found by her grandmother after she hanged herself, the Tuscaloosa News reported. McKenzie attended U.S. Jones Elementary School in Demopolis after transferring from her elementary school in Linden where her mother and grandmother said she had been bullied. Her mother, Jasmine Adams, and her grandmother complained to the State Board of Education about the bullying McKenzie was experiencing, which allegedly continued at her new school.
Jasmine Adams told CBS 42, “She told me that this one particular child was writing her nasty notes in class. It was just things you wouldn’t think a 9-year-old should know. And my baby to tell me some of the things they had said to her, I was like, where are they learning this from? … Part of it could have been because she rode to school with a white family. And a lot of it was race; some of the student bullies would say to her, ‘Why you riding with white people? You’re black; you’re ugly. You should just die.’”
McKenzie’s aunt, Eddwina Harris, a television host in Atlanta, told the Tuscaloosa News, “She was being bullied the entire school year, with words such as ‘kill yourself,’ ‘You think you’re white because you ride with that white boy,’ ‘You ugly,’ ‘Black b-tch,’ ‘Just die.’’’
To believe that this kind of hatred between Americans still exists to this day is disgusting.
I am so sorry to hear that a school allowed this to continue AFTER the issue was brought to the attention of the School Board. I guess they were too busy trying to figure out ways to completely eliminate Christ from the Christmas Season/ school events to actually give this issue any attention.
Furthermore, I do hope the bullies and their families are “OUTED” to the rest of the school and city! People should know what kind of derelicts their kids associate with.
