Group Helps Black Girls Confront Bullying: Most Adults Aren’t Taking Them Seriously

By  |  420 Comments

Bullying can be a serious problem for all children, especially those in the African American community.  We want to think that little girls are “sugar and spice” all the time, but sometimes, they can be brutal toward one another. The proliferation of television shows like “Basketball Wives” has only worsened the bullying problem and made it unbearable for some children to even go to school.

Empowerment Resources Inc has established a program called “Journey Into WomanHood,” that confronts the bullying problem in school.  William Jackson provides an interactive presentation to discuss bullying, harassment and other issues that kids might face in life and in the classroom.  Mr. Jackson, a presenter on Social Media, Internet Safety, Youth and Technology, and Guest Host on BlogTalkRadio “Courageous Conversations Ask A Teacher,” designed an interactive presentation called, “I Will Survive Bullying” focusing on self esteem, bullying prevention, nonviolent strategies, empathy, local laws and self confidence when dealing with bullying and other forms of harassment.

His latest presentation was attended by 20 young women from elementary to high school.  All of the young girls had been victims of bullying for various reasons, including their hair, their clothes and some even because of skin color.   The workshop allowed women to talk about the problems they were facing and how they could deal with them.  They also discussed more recent challenges, such as cyberstalking and cyberbullying.

According to the website, Bullyingstatistics.org, 77% of all kids experience some kind of bullying.   The numbers are even higher for African American children, who often interact with children from environments that are not always entirely stable.  This dysfunction can breed tremendous violence, leading to very serious outcomes, such as the murder of Hadiya Pendleton of Chicago.

According to Jackson:

“Studies of bullying by various organizations found that students threaten repeatedly suffer from various forms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) that is commonly associated with combat veterans. Several students in high school openly stated that teachers have disregarded their reporting of bullying that students receive in schools and are fearful of violence because ‘no one takes it serious at my school’ says one high school young lady. They do not  want to be labeled as ‘snitches.'”

    Bulleying is extremely serious. Prinipals, Teachers, Counselors, managers, and para-professionals need to take this very seriously. In my book “For All Of Us” I highlight the extreme trauma one experiences by being a victim of being bulleyed. When ever any authority figure sees or is notified of a bulley situation the must step in immediately to provide vital assistance to the victim. Letting them know that it is not their fault and assist them to confront their “attacker”. The victim needs to accept some responsibility in the situation, as well. The acceptance of responsibility is not the same thing as accepting blame. It is for them to acknowledge that they were in a relationship that was terribly unbalanced. Bullying is a relationship whereby the “bulley” creates an uneven balance of power to ship in his or her favor and subjugates this created power unto their victim.
    Nevertheless, when the victim acknowledges that the balance of power was a shared creation by both and/or all parties then the victim has the power to recreate their role in this relationship by will. If you create are part creator you can redefine what your part in the creation is upon being cognescent of your part. This is a difficult concept to accept, but once one does it is life transforming. This knowledge will help them recognize, deter and help others prevent bulleying from manifesting into the epidemic it has become.

    The point I discover funny though could be
    the way everybody lets themselves BE bothered by what immature individuals do
    on social networks. I sort of understand where you guys are coming
    from, but honestly, complaining in regards to the annoying issues men
    and women publish on social networks is ne.
