m13 had a bit of dealing with it in a recent vid. seems his kid made it up with the bully now so its all good. a teacher who lets this sort of thing happen is pretty useless imo.

He had plenty of friends. No bullying. He now attends a predominately Caucasian school. Again, popular with the girls. haha, plenty of friends. My son has been able to make friends with Taiwanese, Mexicans, and Caucasians without a problem. Maybe when he gets older, as mentioned by Andrew, he'll start to feel like he doesn't fit in with any racial or ethnic group. I hope it doesn't happen.

yup, kids will be kids. I'm saying bullying is OK. But I was bullied for being Asian in the US when I was middle school. Guess what? I beat the shit out of the other kid and no one ever said anything to me again. I'm not saying you should do what I did. But it's important to stand up for yourself and not cry every time someone hurts your feelings. I bet this kid will get excluded more in the video now that his daddy had to come to baby him. They may not say "fuck you Canada boy" to the kid anymore but I'm sure as hell they won't see him as someone to be associated with.
The teacher thing should have been handled without the children present. That was just bad parenting and inappropriate. You can't baby your kid forever.
