You freely brought it up - your willful admission of doing such a thing could be held against you.

Excuse me, but bullying is NOT a part of life. Once we grow up and get out of school, where is this kind of behavior acceptable? On the job? Not where I work. Someone bullies another employee and they are fired. At church? In stores? In bars? Bully people and you're asked to leave.

Maybe the day your child commits suicide over bullying, you'll think twice about the "kids will be kids" mentality we harbor here in the US.

One more thing, before starting a thread, at least know what you're talking about. You got another thing wrong. Their Black daughter did NOT ask her parents to confront anyone nor did she bring it to their attention. The daughters White friend brought it to the Black girl's parents attention...
Thank you for posting this. You said exactly what I was going to say. Many, many people would agree with what you said here. Bullying is wrong, it is not exceptible. I would like to contract being against bullying with political correctness. Being against bullying is NOT simply being politically correct. Bullying is not a right wing or left wing issue, or something. It's a crime, simply put. And we would all better our society if we all stood up and said NO MORE. Forever.

basic a white man and wife adopted an african american girl. The girl is now in 8th grade and was subjected to some "bullying" in the form of some presumably white high school boys calling her the n word and some other not so nice thing.

anyway the father caught wind of it and went to the police and other thing. He talked to the "bullies" dad and the "bullies" dad was like, "whatever, it what I use to do as a kid. we use the n word all the time" and also insulted the father.


the "victims" father made an youtube video about what was happening (he also outed the bullies).

this is the video the dad made

did he go to far? I mean kids get bullied all the time, especially if they aren't white. it's kind of an accepted part of life. I'm a mixed race child, and I was bullied at times. I certainly wouldn't have told my parents or had my parents confront anyone (not that they would, they would have told me to sucked it up).

I don't see how what you quoted is supporting bullying. Saying bullying is bound to happen isn't the same as saying bullying should happen.

Where did I say that? Honestly, people on acid should stay off the internet.

Okay. Clearly you are here just for entertainment. Have fun. I will try to remember that for any future posts I see from you.

I believe your opinion is misguided, but that ok.
