9-year-old Alabama Girl Commits Suicide After Being Bullied With Racist Taunts

A nine-year-old girl from Alabama committed suicide after she was bullied at school with racist taunts, her family told the Tuscaloosa News.

McKenzie Nicole Adams’s aunt, Eddwina Harris, told the local newspaper that the fourth grade student had been bullied by other students at the U.S. Jones Elementary School in Demopolis, Ala. for “the entire school year.”

“She was being bullied the entire school year, with words such as ‘kill yourself,’ ‘you think you’re white because you ride with that white boy,’ ‘you ugly,’ ‘black b—-,’ ‘just die’,” Harris said.

Harris told the paper that the bullying stemmed form a friendship her niece shared with a boy at her school.

McKenzie’s mother, Jasmine Adams, told WIAT CBS 42 in Birmingham, Ala. that her daughter had notified her teachers and her assistant principal about the bullying.

Jasmine Adams said her daughter’s body was later discovered by her grandmother after she hung herself last week in their home in Linden, Ala.
