tonea parker commented on LAW AGAINST BULLYING: MINNESOTA 2014-03-11 12:19:01 -0400LEGISLATION MEETS TODAY, STAND UP AND BE COUNTED SO A PROPER LAW CAN BE PUT INTO EFFECT IN THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. THE ONLY LAW STATES,’DO NOT bully"!
My name is Tonea Parker and I am Advocating to get a Law passed in Minnesota, to end Bullying! I grew up in a middle-class neighborhood and I was bullied. I chose to not associate with girl's that were loud and attracted the wrong type of attention. I was jumped by a group of several African American girls every day after school. I had to fight daily against girls who bullied because I was fair-skinned, long hair, and green eyes. I was told that, "I thought I was white", just because my friends were another race. I was picked on because of my skin color and because I chose to have positive friend's and I was pretty. I cannot begin to tell you the things Bullying robbed from me experiencing. For a long time no-one helped me, no one stood up for me, then a teacher asked me to talk to her. My grades had suffered terribly and everything was a mess. Today, living in another state and in college full-time. I am Advocating to put an end to my daughter being bullied because she is different. Bullying is wrong, we can no longer turn the other cheek! We are loosing children to suicide and drop-out's in school. I challenge you to stand up and be counted, put an end to BULLYING...
