Jaheem was bullied relentlessly, his family said. Keene said the family knew the boy was a target, but until his death they didn’t understand the scope.
WHEN IS THIS GOING TO STOP!
When will schools and communities and people realize that children are committing SUICIDE because teachers and youth workers are "keeping to their faith" and not stopping punk ass little fuckers from teasing other students. I mean I am absolutely positive if a student was bullying another student using offensive racial or gender based slurs that student would be suspended/reprimanded for their actions. However, when these comments are homophobic and considered to be used too often to catch every student using them then it is OK for teachers not to take action. So because it would be TOO HARD to make students stop using the words gay and fag we are just going to let the LGBT youth affected by this bare the burden and have to deal with it. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME!
HOW MANY MORE LGBT YOUTH HAVE TO TAKE THEIR OWN LIVES BEFORE SOMEONE IN POWER GETS OFF THEIR ASSES AND DOES SOMETHING ABOUT IT!
