Student stands up to racist bully in epic clapback 👏🏽

Racial harassment is never acceptable, but one student had enough of her bully's racist comments. The Asian student had been enduring racially charged comments from a fellow student, who accused her of causing the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite reporting the harassment to school officials, nothing was done. On the second day of in-person classes, the bully made another derogatory comment, and the victim decided to take matters into her own hands. She delivered a scathing clapback, criticizing the bully's poor dental hygiene and economic status. While some fellow students thought she went too far, the victim felt empowered by finally standing up to her tormentor. The incident highlights the need for schools to take swift action against all forms of harassment and bullying. It also shows the power of standing up for oneself and refusing to be a victim. In the next section, we'll explore some of the reactions to the victim's actions and the overall issue of racism in schools.
