A boy of nine who was found hanged is believed to have killed himself after he was ‘bullied for being white’ by an Asian gang at school.
Aaron Dugmore – thought to be one of the youngest children in the UK to commit suicide – was discovered in his bedroom after being tormented for months, his parents said.
They said Aaron was threatened with a plastic knife by one Asian pupil, who warned him: ‘Next time it will be a real one.’
He was also allegedly told by another pupil that ‘all the white people should be dead’ and he was forced to hide from the bullies in the playground at lunchtime.

Incredibly, the comments section is nothing but white-apologists trying to act like this wasn't a racially charged crime :unsure2:

Sounds racially charged to me.  I hope the bullies are arrested and held responsible for driving this kid to this.

Imagine the response had the ethnicities been reversed! (Actually, I'm surprised the incident was reported at all!)

This immigration/tolerance/acceptance system is doomed to fail. It's built on the premise that both sides (native residents and immigrants,) are working towards the same end.

Clearly, both sides have different ideas about "tolerance".

If the situation was reversed, there'd be prosecutions.
As it is, another round of "don't be naughty" and inevitably, picking up on something said about the children/culture in question and used as a new stick to have a go at the majority.
I wonder if that old chestnut of "people who belong to the majority can't be victims of discrimination" will be trotted out.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Using racism and threats to scare the daylights out of someone so they commit suicide is racially aggravated manslaughter. If it can be shown they knew he could commit suicide then its murder.

Wow, this is so sad. :(

These kids ought to go to jail, for a hate crime. But, I doubt they will.

Reading the story, something seems off here.  Just a few aspects of it don't seem to add up.  this school of 450 having an asian gang is odd, but believable, but the idea this boy was popular had no group of friends helping hims seems stranger.
Furthermore, at this point its just claims by the parents with no evidence to it yet.

The story given could have happened, it just seems very early on in this story to try and say the things being said.

When you know what a man loves, you know what can kill him

What's odd about a school of 450 having a gang?

It is important that this case is treated in the same way that it would be if the child had been bullied for not being white.

If they don't they will only fuel extremist hatred groups further.

Shouldn't hold your breath. I think it's written in british law that it's ok to be racist as long as the victim is white. Happens all the time.

Not only British law....I'd say that it was mostly world-wide. Imagine the international response had Robert Mugabe been white!

Talk about a melting pot...immigrants are coming in droves with, or in the process of having, multiple children while almost every Caucasian friend I have says "nah...we don't really plan on having kids."

The future looks bleak for those of fair skin. We can only hope the future workforce is actually a workforce and not an entire generation of welfare-collectors.

So why did Aaron's parent's not get fully involved in the situation at the very first sign of bullying? Ridiculous, don't slack, get these situations handled as quickly as possible.
