Why the hell is this news?
Kids bully other kids. That is what kids do. Kids that appear different,weaker or smaller than the kids bullying are usually the ones getting wedgies or thrown in lockers.
Kids that are in the MINORITY are also easy targets. (I.E. Gay's, Lesbians, Red Haired kids, short kids, mentally challenged kids,poor kids, fat kids and just plain kid kids.)
So why does this have to be about Black Thugs beating up on poor defenseless Asian mathmatic genuises?
If it were a school in China Town and the 1 or 2 Blacks that attended there got beat up, would it be anything different?
I am sure that race was a factor in the bullying, but in my opinion, this was a case of kids doing what kids do.
Some of Fields commenter's are straight racist. Some are educated Negro's that have not been around other Negro's in a while, so they have the same attitude as some of the racist white people. Some of the commenters are Negro's that like to blame everything evil in the world on White People.
There is a mixture of everybody over at Field's.
A lot of the comments were based soley on the race of the attackers and that of the victims. Which is relavent, but it is a small part of what is really going on.
Most of the comments were about Black Thugs and ghetto's, rap music, babies having babies, Blacks not wanting education, Black's being prone to violence, parents on welfare, Slavery and so on and so on.
This does not surprise me at all because some if not all of the above mentioned things could have played a role in those Asian kids getting picked on.
If it were White Students getting beat down by Asian students would any of the above be mentioned?
They got singled out because they were different and because there was not a lot of them.
I am not condoning the actions of these bullies, because bullying is wrong.
But kids will be kids.
There has been bullies in school ever sense there was school.
It is amazing to me how some people want to put Grown Folk's fuck-ups on kids that are still learning how to be Grown Folks.
Getting bullied in school is a right of passage that all of us have been through. Either it makes you a stronger person or it leaves you a bitter old person that justifies your hatred towards anyone that looks like the bullys, instead of admitting to yourself that you were(are) too damn weak to protect yourself and demand respect.
So needless to say I do not agree with most of the Field's regular visitors.
But ya'll know the old saying, "Opinion's are like assholes, we all have one."
And there are a lot of Assholes that comment over at Field's spot.
