My kids school is pretty white. They may have one child of color per grade. The child is accepted as much as any other student. If the culture of the school makes your child feel uncomfortable it's time for some sensitivity training. Talk to the school councilor

NDADANCEMOM wtf your kids are white please tell me how a white child or mom can relate to what she is saying.

Op can you switch schools? I know how your kids feel I was in the same position when I was in school except I was harassed and beat up. Please don't leave your children in that school. They deserve to be accepted for who they are not picked on. The white kids are the ones who need sensitivity training.

I would take my children out of that school and put them in a different one. It sounds to me that people there have narrow minds. Granted I would be talking to their teacher and principal first, but being racist is unacceptable at any age.

Have you talked to the school? Do your boys want to change schools?do they have a lot of friends outside of school?

No they dont.

OPs kids need to learn that not everyone is going to like them.

I grew up in a small town with ZERO African-Americans. Every now and then we got a new kid who was Oriental or Indian and kids would devour them! Everyone wanted to be their friend. I'm sure that if there had been an African-American new kid it would be the same thing. Not all schools are like that. Good luck finding a good one!

I am so sorry for your children. Where we live there are a few blacks and they seem to  do just fine. They are not picked on shuned or bulled. My 13 year old gets left out because he is so much younger then the rest of his class so i know / see what you are going threw. I would suggest maybe tring to get them more involved. Maybe a sport or a club where they can make friends.
