Children in Alabama are apparently taught to hate at an early age. A 10-year-old Black student at Chelsea Park Elementary in Birmingham, Alabama faced assaults and harassment by White students, according to Alabama.com.

Taylor Armbrester, 10, and his family recently moved into the area and he became a new student at Chelsea Park Elementary in the fall. The school has 883 students and only 88 students are Black. He soon became a victim of bullying by fellow White students. The abuse was physical and verbal.

The White students punched, kicked, and called him “Black boy.” One student wrote a racist poem that said, “Roses are red, violets are blue, I am white, why aren’t you? God made me pretty, what happened to you?”

Another White student accused him of stealing a fidget and punched him the face. The kid actually lost his book bag and the fidget fell out. Armbrestrer was also abused be a White female student who he thought was has friend. While shooting basketball by himself, the girl asked if she could play. Armbrester gave the girl a ball and threw it at him with force. The force of the ball broke his finger. His mother had to take him the emergency room.

School officials have had a meeting with the White students, but they claimed that it was an isolated incident. But research has shown that more racist attitudes have emerged in schools since the election of Donald Trump. One day following the election, students at York County School of Technology in Pennsylvania yelled “White power.” In Philadelphia, White students spray-painted swastikas and other racist symbols on the walls. According to Southern Poverty Law Center, racist incidents continue to rise after Trump used White supremacy as a basis for his campaign.

Armbrester’s mother has yet to reveal if she will sue the school for the harassment that her son faced due to racism.

    Your typical, white baby cave rodents, starting their savagery early of course. How is it that, we are told racism, either doesn’t exist or is actually really black racism (I know comical right). Yet, decade after decade you only hear thousands of stories of whites initiating racist attacks against blacks. Whether it be physically or verbally.

    Where are the thousands of attacks initiated by blacks against whites, ldecade after decade in the U.S.? Were are the articles of black cops shooting white kids 17 times in the black or in the head for leaving a party? Where are the stories of black kids in college dressing up in “white face” mocking black culture? Where are the stories of the black neighborhood watch gunning down a “suspicious” white teen with a hand full of candy? Where are the news clips of black supermacist media blaming the white victim of black attacks or crime. Saying, they once had a parking ticket or refused nap time in kindergarten. So therefore, 20 yrs later they somehow deserved to be murdered.

    Where is this elusive black racism or black supremacy? Is it hiding with Waldo? If there are no compariable examples of blacks creating laws to discriminate specifically against whites in the U.S. or examples of any of the aforementioned. One can then only conclude, whites are not reacting out against blacks due to any systematic oppression.

    The question then becomes. Why have whites behaved the way they have towards black people for hundreds of years?

    If whites are truly a loving, civilized and progressive people. A people who are not racist or savage by nature. Why have they done, what they’ve done for so long? So the question remains, what is their excuse for their hatred??

            Just remind her that a white man married to a black woman has a 40% better chance of still being married 10 years later than a white man married to a white woman.

            See how much that gets her going.

    @alwaysright21 Your honor, as I have stated and proved, whites are savages by nature. I now rest my case.
