Where was the teacher?? That's unacceptable
I’m not mad a mom, she did what she felt she had to do. I’m mad at the school for letting her do it. Where was the teacher? Security?
The version I saw of the video had a ww teacher calmly sitting to the right of Mom while Mom delivered her TedTalk/Manifesto, lol. I relayed the video to my girls via text because I cracked up. My girls were like, "That is totally you but without the cursing." I'm pretty overprotective and with these kids killing themselves over being bullied with adults looking the other way or joining in sometimes, I sympathized with Mom, especially cause I read that it was boys doing the bullying, possibly white. Also, at some point the teacher got up and walked out of the camera's view but she legit sat there looking completely nonplussed like it was just another Tuesday.
*deleted* Too early for that rant and I would not have handled it this way but I completely understand mom's reaction. Please peep the passionate borderline inflammatory language the reporter used that they can't seem to muster up when needed when reporting on a certain demographic doing racist, illegal, and corrupt acts. All of sudden their vocabulary switches to passive mode.
Worry about your sons, brothers, and fathers shooting up schools and every place else.
Did it seem like mom was yelling to y'all?
They need to leave that lady alone. See if any criminal acts were committed? Omg. And no, @Shula that, to me, isn't yelling. White people love to claim someone is yelling at them when they gettin cussed/fussed out. Yelling involves raising of voices.
Seriously! Her voice sounds like Miche’le, baby voice and baby face. Surprised they didn’t activate and weaponize the white woman tears.
Did anybody else hear a black girl say, “Period!” when mom finished? That part did me in and might be in the original uncut video.
Wrong way to handle it- I understand her frustration but if her daughter said she was feeling suicidal she should be removed from that school and got her daughter some counseling. Now her daughter may become more of a target.
Bullies come in all forms- college bullies in the forms of professors, work bullies in the form of coworkers and bosses, etc. Is her mom gonna go stand up to them as well?
Again I understand but it’s just not effective
Supposedly she never ID'd specifically who her daughter was so she wouldn't be targeted but I don't know how true that is. And I agree with you but you just called me out, lol.
My girls came home a couple of summers ago and told me a white lady employee at BJs did some highly inappropriate mess to them. I really did try to stay calm and respectful but the store manager was a racist hick and being condescending to me. Before I knew it, I was yelling and insulting and HEATED. When I got off the phone, my girls were looking at me with their mouths open in shock and disbelief that I snapped out like that. Like my head spun around on my shoulders, lol. Now, they don't take me anywhere as much as they used to unless that level of show out is possibly needed . It's not very frequent and they tend to handle themselves pretty well, thank goodness. Even my timid baby posted up (respectfully) for her twin the other day and got results. I was so proud, lol. Y'all there is something about having kids that turns you into a psychopath when folks try to mess with your babies.
I understand sis
FH lowkey got someone fired at a previous job for me
He keeps offering his services having had to deal with even worse future work bullies but I have since declined
You know I love it, lol. Go on, king!
Im ready to fight 8 year olds over my baby. A whole high schooler?? Tuh
I’m the calmest person you’ll meet in real life. But over these babies? Me and my cutlass will ride.
Seriously! And call me for back up; we ride at dawn!
Someone needs to get those bad bullies off campus. That's what these parents need to focus on. Raise your children to not bully so there would be no need for a woman to go into mama bear mode. These passive aggressive people are something else.
So basically, the WW set her up...
I'm looking at it from another student's parental point of view.. there are better ways to handle that. Being a bully while bullying children about being bullies...makes no sense. Oh yeah, they're unarmed kids and not cops.
She was speaking the bullies language since they seem so stupid.
They are KIDS... most kids are stupid...their brains are still developing...what's your point? That's not the way to get bullies off campus.
Sorry, I will not accept that. The reason why is because the boys were punished and taught not to bully. I want to assume the parents talked to them, too. No excuses after that. These were middle school children and not toddlers.
Nah call me to go knock on they mama’s doors. If that don’t work I say burn it down Danerys Targaryen style
That's fine, I respect your opinion... I'd ETA my comment before your reply...my point is, that is not the best way to deal with that situation. Her "going a step further" got her banned from the school...
Those same middle school children may be laughing at her daughter about her mom being banned from school.
She did not go about it the right way but it sounds like the trigger for her was when her daughter said if she was not strong she would have killed herself. Hopefully those bad bullies would see a parent willing to sacrifice for their child. If not, those bullies are worse off than thought. I would wonder about their home life if they thought all of this was funny.
Look, I almost had to go handle an 8 year old the other day myself. I was watching from afar when I saw DD bless the brat out. And I swear that girls bully worse than boys sometimes.
I think it takes a village...The US may be a melting pot but it's not one big village. Not every parent would take well to an adult fighting their child. I know I'd have a problem with that.... Take it up with the parent.
I am not sure if the TV segment showed the whole speech...you can view it here
(Watch from beginning to 0:00 - 1:24)
Yeah.... baby girl telling me if she wasn’t strong she would kill herself would have me ready to turn the mutha all the way out, ya hear!!! And I don’t have kids. We have seen kids kill themselves as a result of bullying one time too many!
Sounds like the school needs to take responsibility. Those boys were still actively bullying her. The school clearly wasn’t responding quickly enough or they weren’t responding at all.
Children are killing themselves with bullies being out of control and we've heard too many stories of schools doing not nearly enough when it's black kids and some white ones too. In some cases, the teachers have been the bullies. We've had black kids with nooses put around their necks and called the nword while teachers shrug it off. Mom is protecting hers. The we are a village concept never included black folks as residents if the village includes or is ran by others.
I understand where the mom is coming from but she just made things worse for her child.
Hopefully mom has a strong support system because her daughter needs 1) to be homeschooled and 2) taken off any social media platform where they can reach her and 3) get her in therapy. No she shouldn’t have to but if her daughter is suicidal waiting for the bullies to see the light of day or be scared straight isn’t an option.
The mother nor her daughter said she was suicidal. Apparently the girl is strong and told her mother the bullying is continuing and can see why children are suicidal. Middle school is the worst. With social media, bullying has gone to another level. The bullies need to be homeschooled, taken off social media, and get therapy. I predict the statistics will say more school aged children than not will feel suicidal.
Another mom protecting her baby. If the wiring is right, it’s instinctual to protect your babies.
