“We know that traditional bullying results in higher rates of anxiety and depression and even higher risks of suicidal ideation and lower self-esteem and the research shows that we’re seeing similar impacts from cyber-bullying as well. It’s most likely to be harmful when there is that mixed harassment of bullying and cyber-bullying that occur together,” IBPA president Patricia Agatston said.
In a single day, Raw Story has reported on three cases of pro-Trump related bullying of students. The first occurred when students in Minnesota were greeted with “F*ck n*ggers” written on their door. A Michigan middle school had a small group of children chanting “build that wall,” while their fellow students, who are Latino, were crying. Another school, this one in Pennsylvania, had students marching with Donald Trump signs while chanting “white power.” We also covered a story of Trump supporters, who filmed themselves driving through Wellesley College, Hillary Clinton’s alma mater and harassing black students.
Wednesday, we covered a south Philly neighborhood subjected to Nazi graffiti. A Utah man told a neighbor boy, “get out of here n*gger” — then attacked the boy’s dad with stun cane.
