April 4, 2023

If some moderator takes this post down, it is a disservice to society. We can’t keep hiding this shit from people. Growing up I had people calling me “Nigger” and most of the time it wasn’t to my face. We didn’t have social media back then so instead of being a coward online, they would write it in my notebooks, leave messages in my locker and even spray paint it on my car. Even more hurtful was when people tried to tell me that it didn’t happen and it doesn’t exist. Thank God for my high school principal otherwise I would have not have been able to share those experiences as he was the only one brave enough to go on record admitting that it happened. You would be shocked at the hundreds of emails I get daily from kids who are unsure how to handle the hate they encounter at school and online. Many of them feel like they want to die and are desperately seeking help. An email response from me can’t fix what they are dealing with- it takes countless, real conversations. A lot of you are afraid to show this kind of message to your kids and want to hide and protect them from this kind of hate. I strongly suggest showing them stuff like this - prepare them for the world they are going to experience. They might not be called “Nigger” but they will find another word that is equally offensive. The worst thing I have ever experienced was when a young man reached out to me on email saying that he wanted to kill himself. He was getting bullied and didn’t know how to handle it. Sad thing is that I responded to it months too late. We hide too much from our kids and are trying to create some perfect world for them so when the hard times come- and they are coming!- they have no idea how to handle it. They can’t see beyond it. I am sharing this with you to let you know that you are not alone. I am 48 years old and have been experiencing this for 48 years. This post is amateur compared to the things I have endured and yet I have not only survived the hate, I have thrived in spite of it.
