Nasir Andrews is only 9 years old but she’s pleading for someone to help stop the racial bullying she’s experiencing in her fourth-grade classroom.
She is not suffering silently.
“I don’t feel like anybody is helping or cares,” Nasir posted in a heartrending video on Facebook. “I want kids and adults to know my story. Bullying is real. It hurts for myself and other kids. Help change the ending.”
Nasir, who is African-American, posted her video after she told reporters that she’s been kicked, punched in the face and choked at her school. She also found a drawing in her cubby shelf depicting bullets being fired from a gun with the words, “die, die, die.”
Nasir says she has been the victim of racial bullying at Ardmore Elementary School in Bellevue, Washington since September and when school administrators refused to address the bigoted harassment, Nasir said, she decided to share her situation on social media because she couldn’t get anyone in her school to help her. Her video has been viewed more than 17,000 times.
