School Bus Beating

I haven't heard too much commentary on this matter, where a white student was beaten on a school bus, by two black students in Illinois. Initially, the police thought it was racially motivated, but changed it's mind. Also, this incident has now caused a bus driver to lose his job, after it was said he followed protocol during the incident. I recently posted on facebook, I thought this was a perfect example of bullying.

This just shows how cruel, we, as people even kids can be to one another. And, how disappointed I am to say this was bullying and not a racial incident. Unfortunately for the victim, he and his family are going to be hit with discrimination twice. Once, by being denied a seat on a bus, next by being denied a headline in the news.


Wrong skin color.
