There are so many signs and symptoms of children getting bullied and I personally have experienced all of them. The child could come home with unexplainable injuries and even damaged articles of clothing and not want to tell the truth about what happened.

Throughout history we have seen that racism is a problem in the United States. From people being segregated to being discriminated because of their race, racism has affected many people. Because racism was a much bigger problem in the past, people tend to think that it doesn’t exist anymore. I think that racism is still a problem in the United States because it negatively impacts schools, neighborhoods, and society.

If that question is asked at a table usually people would say “No”. A long time ago that answer would have no opposition, but now with the recent murders of students on school grounds that answer is not so easy to answer.

Drama over Bullying: What’s in a Word Everyone in their life has experienced bullying, but bullying is slowly taking on new forms in a changing society. The images of a playground bully are turning into little two dimensional and cowering behind social media programs such as Facebook, Twitter, Intsagram, ect. In the article “The Drama over Bullying: What’s in a Word” the author talks about her point of view with bullying and how being a little overzealous with the word “bullying” is not a bad thing. The author starts out with stories of sorrow, how kids had been bullied to the point that there was no other way out except for suicide. This upsets me as the reader and it clearly upsets the author, with her attitude clearly saying that if it has come to this, something needs to be done.
