I don’t know if you have heard but this story has been getting lots of national attention and i’m glad it has.

A beautiful young boy in MA committed suicide a week before his 12th birthday after constant bullying and teasing from his classmates. He was called gay, fem, white boy all because he wouldn’t talk the “thug” or “ghetto” talk…because he was active in his boy scouts, church and other community activites. The mother reported this to the school but they officials did nothing.

I can totally relate to this. As a child I was constantly teased by my black classmates more than any others for trying to be white and not mannish enough because i wouldn’t fight, or talk down to others.

CNN has doing a great job in talking about this.
