#Cousins ; we would like to take this time to send our deepest thoughts and prayers to a young soul’s life gone way too soon. The world we are living in paired with the current state of society is a damaged cycle which is negatively effecting children everywhere.
9 Year old #McKenzieAdams of Linden, #Alabama was found dead within her grandmother’s home after hanging herself recently. According to the #DailyMail ; McKenzie was harassed with racial slurs and death threats on a daily basis by fellow classmates. Mckenzies’s Mother Jasmine Adams states “Part of it could have been because she rode to school with a white family. And a lot of it was race, some of the student bullies would say to her 'why you riding with white people you're black, you're ugly. You should just die”
Sources state the bullying began at the beginning of the school year and continued through. Adams mother states that her daughter complained to school officials about the harassment and no assistance was forwarded. McKenzie often confided in her mother stating there was one student in particular who continuously wrote notes taunting her to kill herself alongside other distasteful words. “It was just things you wouldn't think a nine-year-old should know” , stated McKenzies mom to local news.
