Posted March 12, 2019 14:21:24 I am the poster child of a new form of bullying, one which has come to be known as “the nword”.
The phrase, which is used in derogatory terms by people who do not like the colour of my skin, is used to describe a person’s “nose”, or the part of their face that they do not want others to see.
In a recent tweet, a young girl, who was not named, wrote: “I hate how the n- word is used against me and my family, my friends and my community.”
When I said I am an Aboriginal person, she replied: “You are Aboriginal.
You are not a nigger.”
“I am an Indigenous person and I have the right to not be called a n****r.” “
This new form is not limited to the internet, but has been adopted in the real world by the bullying I experience on a daily basis. “
I am an Indigenous person and I have the right to not be called a n****r.”
This new form is not limited to the internet, but has been adopted in the real world by the bullying I experience on a daily basis.
Many young people believe that bullying is “cool” because they are able to say and express their “n-word” without fear of repercussions.
One young woman who asked to be identified only as A, told me that her friends have been bullied online for years.
A young woman in Australia, who asked not to be named, told the ABC that she and her friends were bullied in school.
She said: “The people who are bullies online, they don’t care about your feelings, they just want to bully you.”
She continued: “They have this idea that they are the ones who are doing the bullying.
They are just using the n word.”
It is important to remember that while some people may say they don´t like the color of my face, they are not racists, they have a different opinion of who I am and what I do, and it is their choice to use the nword.
However, the majority of the people who use the “nword” are not people of colour.
Instead, the people they bully are people who have a white skin.
The fact that it is a white person who has the power to bully someone of colour in this way is a reminder of why we need to work to change our society to reflect our diversity.
This is why I think we need a conversation around the “the n- word”.
My own experience of bullying has been to be able to talk about it openly and freely.
It has also given me the courage to stand up for myself and my identity as an Indigenous woman, which has helped me to get past the bullying that I experienced as a child.
As a young child, I would play in the sand at the beach, and when I was young I would get bullied for being Indigenous.
My family would sometimes tease me for not playing like a boy, which I was embarrassed about.
I was also bullied in class, for my skin.
I would often be asked by the teachers to prove I was Aboriginal by saying my parents were Aboriginal.
When my parents moved to Australia, I was able to go to school and receive an A-level, but there were many times where I felt I did not fit in at all.
There were also times when I would feel very isolated and bullied because of my race, and even my parents did not understand why.
Even when I went to university, I did struggle with social anxiety.
So, I think it is important that we understand the “toxic culture” that exists on the internet and how it affects us and our children, so that we can begin to address it.
What can you do?
It would be easy for us to be offended by the term “n****r”, or even just ignore it, and be OK with the term as long as we are aware of the problems that are happening.
But I believe that it would be a good idea to start a conversation with yourself about what it means to be Aboriginal and what your identity is.
Do you think you might have been a victim of “the n-Word” in the past?
Share your experiences with the ABC.
