When I was 8 and 9, I got bullied because I am a Colombian/Cuban American, and This little girl said to me, ” I don’t like you, cause’ you’re white.” I thought it was nothing at first, but then it escalated. She started to call me names, make fun of me, and she even tried to push me down the school stairs. Luckily, she grabbed my shirt, and stopped me from falling. My parents contacted the principal, and we were told not to speak, or be around each other. But then, she would blackmail my friends, and tell them to deliver a message from her, to me…and if they didn’t, she would tell the teacher that they cheated on a tests (which they didn’t). She was saying racist things about me, and making rumors that I was bullying her. So, I told my mom and dad, and my parents personally came to the school, and shared this information with the principal. The little girl was then banned from the school.
