'Why you riding with white people? You're black, you're ugly. You should just die.'

Don't know why but this story hit me pretty fuqin' hard. How can peeps be so cruel and nasty.

Wonder if the school coulda done more. Doesn't sound like they did much.

Can you imagine how libs and the msm woulda reacted if it were a white chick bein' bullied by white classmates because she hung out with a black family? Holy balls they woulda went ape-sh*t. Joy Behar woulda made this national news with her race-baiting on The View. But...it was blacks bein' bullies so ya won't really hear too much 'bout it.

9-year-old black girl hangs herself after classmates bullied her over friendship with white family

McKenzie Adams, 9, loved playing with dolls, riding her bike, and making funny videos with her cousins, the Tuscaloosa News reported.

The outgoing Alabama fourth-grader also loved math and wanted to be a scientist, the paper added.

But a group of classmates apparently didn't like McKenzie and bullied her. McKenzie's mother, Jasmine Adams, told WIAT-TV that a white family friend drove McKenzie to school every day and that race played a factor in the bullying.

"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," Adams told the station.

McKenzie hanged herself at home last week, the News said, adding that her grandmother found her.

"It's an emotional roller-coaster," her aunt, Atlanta TV host Eddwina Harris, noted to the paper.

McKenzie attended U.S. Jones Elementary School in Demopolis, transferring there after her mother and grandmother complained to the state Board of Education that she was being bullied at her elementary school in Linden, Harris added to the News.

Adams told WIAT that McKenzie informed her teachers and her assistant principal a number of times that she was being bullied.

"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," the tearful mother recounted to the station. "And my baby to tell me some of the things they had said to her, I was like, 'Where are they learning this from?'"

Adams added to WIAT that the school system let her daughter and her family down.

"I just felt that our trust was in them that they would do the right thing," she said. "And it feels like to me it wasn't it wasn't done."

Alex Brasswell, the City Schools attorney, told the station the case is under investigation.

"We are working fully with the Demopolis and Linden police department," Brasswell said. "They are doing a joint investigation of these allegations. We are cooperating fully and I can't comment on any of the aspects of the investigation until they conclude it."

McKenzie's funeral will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday at her elementary school in Demopolis, WIAT said.

Harris noted to the News that she wants to use her platform to spread an anti-bullying message to prevent other families from experiencing the same tragedy.
"God has blessed me to help others with my platform, and now it's time to help," Harris told the News. "There are so many voiceless kids. God is opening great doors for justice for my niece."

What a tragedy. I hope the bullies are dealt with and their parents are forced to deal with the actions of these brats. If the school was aware of the bullying and did nothing to confront it, they should also be held liable.

This is why racism will never end. Too many black parents teach their kids that whitey is bad and not to trust white people in general. Rev Wright preached this stuff in his church, I'm sure 1,000's of other black pastors teach the same thing.

“...you’re black, you’re ugly...”

that’s the part that doesn’t make sense if coming from other black kids.
who knows...maybe it did. it just doesn’t make sense to me.
it could easily be white kids tormenting a black kid for hanging with a white kid rather than bullying the white kid.
i don’t know because i wasn’t there and the report doesn’t tell us leaving room for assumptions.

i guess the bottom line is you have crappy parents who taught their kids bullying was acceptable; and parents with a daughter who didn’t feel like she had anyone in her corner for support.

Glen Beck was talking about it on his radio show this morning and he said it was black kids bullying her.

You know the print Media doesn't want to put that out there.
