Black girls from Horizon Christian School in Indianapolis are scared to go back to school after their racist classmates bullied them for their skin color.


Parents of two girls from Horizon Christian School were alarmed after their daughters began asking to stay home rather than to go to school. It turns out, they were being bullied and threatened due to their skin color.

Alexander Wortham knew there was something wrong with his daughter Imani when she kept asking to stay home from school more often than usual.

He and another parent named Dominique Duncan soon after found out that their two high school daughters were being bullied for being black. Hoping to raise more awareness about this troubling issue, he said:


“Silence is killing our young people. People not dealing with the issue. Not dealing with the problem and I think for us, as parents, enough is enough."

Duncan, agreed to his co-parent's statement, saying that he is "very let down as a parent".

According to Imani and her friend LaShanti, a male student from their school started bullying them and saying things like "If the school ever gets shot up, you'll be the first one to get shot." As if this was not frightening enough, Imani said that the student pointed at her specifically, and looked her in the eye.


In another incident, LaShanti said that the same guy told her that he would sell her into slavery.

“He said he would sell me into slavery if I didn’t do what he said and then he started making little jingles about slavery.”

Soon after the parents went to the school to report the incident, all parents from the school received an e-mail saying that the student had been suspended for his actions, but was later on allowed to return to class the next week.


However, scared of what the bully might do to them after his suspension, the two girls decided to stay home the entire week despite not wanting to.

"We should be able to go to school and not feel threatened, scared, or having to be on edge the whole time."

As for their parents, they ask schools to create more concrete policies on bullying, suggesting an all-school assembly or even bringing in experts to discuss race relations and bullying.
