“It was about 2009. I was in 10th grade and it was before winter.” Elle (not her real name) began her story. It was Heritage Month at her school, a month to learn about immigration, where students interviewed their oldest family members and presented the story of how their family had come to America.
It was a fun project the history teacher had come up with.
“I honestly had fun interviewing my great grandmother and elderly family members about their childhood and such before moving to America. It was really interesting to learn about the lifestyles they lead before coming to the U.S. Our family, including myself, are all 1st gen immigrants from Finland.” Elle explained to me.
“My Great Grandfather’s father was from Germany and [he had] emigrated to Germany during the war and was a German soldier tasked with working with Finland to ally powers with the Axis powers to help keep the Soviets out of their country, which is also how my great-grandfather’s father met his wife, Helena, and had my great-grandfather. (This is all stuff I was told by my great-grandmother as my great-grandfather passed away 3 years prior.)”
Most Americans would be captivated by so much detail and family history. Elle had access, through her great-grandmother, to stories that many Americans spend thousands of hours and hundreds of dollars on ancestry sites to find.
However, Elle faced a nearly unimaginable backlash to her report.
“[They] started calling me a Nazi, Nazi supporter and racist.”
“It was the kids in my class primarily. After class, a lot of the kids of color and even some of the kids who also had German heritage jumped on [me] and started calling me a Nazi, Nazi supporter and racist. I was even called a bigot at one point.”
“These kids were all about 10th grade level and probably didn’t understand half of what they were saying because they were just bullying to look cool.”
She was baffled at how quickly they all forgot that she was very good friends with many African-American and Asian girls. However, all of that ended after the Heritage Month report. They were no longer her friends.
“I was excited to give my report like everyone else in my class… at the time. I just didn’t know it would result in a loss of my friends and social groups.” Elle recalled.
As time passed following the report, Elle found herself a social pariah. She lost all her friends and vicious rumors were spread about her. She found it hard to focus on her school work.
“I ended up actually dropping out of school that year because kids would throw paper at me in class and the teachers wouldn’t do anything about it.”
Many refused to come to her aide and would not enforce anti-bullying policies because Elle was white. She learned some harsh lessons, before dropping out, about being white in “progressive” America.
“I ended up having to self-educate a lot and just come to terms with the [fact that the] ‘anti bullying policy’ [was only] for African-American students and other children who weren’t white or straight.”
The stunning thing was that it wasn’t just students of color who piled on Elle, many white children turned on her as well because of her heritage.
“African-American kids, Asian, German kids, some other white kids, and even the foreign exchange student from Russia. The only friend I actually managed to keep was from Belarus and was also a 1st generation immigrant like myself and happened to also be a bassoon player in symphonic band with me.”
‘That creepy white supremacist with the boots’
“Once they learned the words ‘white supremacist’ in class I was called ‘That creepy white supremacist with the boots’ because I chose to wear my lace up boots in high school for ankle support because I had to go to work after school.”
Elle reached out for support from adults in her life yet found few who were willing to stand up for a white child.
“I tried to ignore them and reported them to the principal, my guidance counselor, and my dad.”
“The only teacher that got involved was my band teacher who said I could eat lunch in one of the practice rooms in the band class area if I needed to get away from the constant bullying.”
“My dad’s words were “f**k em’…” and he wasn’t very supportive. My acting teacher, band teacher and art teachers helped me learn to channel my emotions into my artistic talents, and tried to talk to the board, but because they were only “the arts” they were ignored.”
At one point Elle took a German class and developed a love of languages.
“As it stands I speak English, Finnish, Inari Sami (a very interesting group of people who are actually my family’s ‘tribe’) and I am learning French and relearning German.”
The experience has stuck with her and made her protective and proud of her heritage and people.
“I have…been buying ‘made in Finland’ products and ‘made in Germany’ products when I can. Mostly I buy ‘made in America,’ but some things are better from their country of origin.”
Elle’s story is part of a shocking and growing trend as American demographics shift and progressive, anti-white values, spread.
An Education Department survey in 2015 found that the most likely students in American schools to be bullied, were white girls, however, boys were bullied at a high rate as well, especially when they were a minority in their school.
Daniel (not his real name) told me of his experience; “I was bullied waiting for and riding the school bus, usually along racial lines. I dreaded going to the bus stop area, and tried everything I could to avoid getting the attention of the groups of black kids that gathered for school.”
“I can vividly remember the humiliation I felt when one day we all boarded the bus but no one allowed me to sit next to them, and I had to crouch in the middle aisle of the bus for the entire ride to school.”
…it was like being
bitten by a thousand rats, dying slowly…
Daniel experienced a reality that adults try to pretend doesn’t exist.
“I hated going to [my first middle school], because it was like being
bitten by a thousand rats, dying slowly – I was constantly hectored, teased and harassed. Everyone was separated into distinct racial groups.”
There seems to be no child too young to become a target. Shelly (not her real name) reached out to relate her story of visiting the U.S. (her home country) from the Ukraine.
“I grew up in Briarwood, New York City,” she began, “which was 50% white in the 1980s but is now 30% white and falling. In particular, a lot of immigrants from India, Pakistan and Uzbekistan have arrived in recent years (thank you, Barack Hussein).”
“I was visiting my father in spring 2014 (still living in Briarwood) with my son, Marvin, who was three years old at the time.”
“We visited the local playground several times.”
“In one incident, my son was on a jungle gym and he was about five feet off the ground. An Afro-American kid, perhaps about six years, shoved him off the jungle gym, sending Marvin crashing to the rubber mats below. He was crying but no injury, thank God. His mother admonished her son but didn’t say anything to me. I was too shocked to say anything and took my son home immediately.”
“In a second incident, Marvin was walking across a bridge-type platform that led to a slide. As he was walking, a Hindu/Pakistani boy (same height and probably age) shoved him from behind and sent him falling to the floor, hitting his forehead against a ledge.”
“Again, crying but no serious injury, just a bruise on his forehead. The boy’s parents came up to me to apologize on his behalf but didn’t scold or instruct their child.”
“Now I understand these might be coincidences.” she was careful to say.
“But,” she pressed on, “please consider that Marvin was born and raised in Kyiv, Ukraine, which is 99% percent white. We still live here. And not once did anything similar happen to him at the various playgrounds we visited.”
The events made Shelly seriously consider what was going on with children in America.
“Does anti-white socialization happen that young?” she pondered. “Or
do darker kids view whites as targets? Food for thought.”
Many philosophers and scholars who study conflict have often come to the conclusion that difference plus proximity, equals war. Are the differences in our American schools and playgrounds creating conflict, and are these differences based on race alone or is it the inability to culturally assimilate mass amounts of immigrants and engender respect toward the founding people of the country.
In the end, does it matter what is causing the conflict when our society has been inundated with the notion that you cannot be racist to white people no matter how much evidence there is that people are, in fact, attacking whites, especially white children, based on their race?
If we cannot even admit there is a problem, how likely are we to begin to honestly look at the reasons behind it? And while the adults try to find the courage to address this epidemic, how many more children are left suffering?
