North Carolina Black girl is discouraged from going to school, as classmates made fun of her color, saying she looks like she was kept in the oven too long

Black girl discouraged from going to school over skin color

An eleven year old girl is literally afraid to go to school. All of this is due to her classmates making fun of her over her skin color. The little girl attends Riverwood Middle School, in Clayton, North Carolina. This child had the misfortune of her classmates not appreciating her. Not only was she made fun of, she was made fearful of even going to school. As a result, the child and her mother have decided to speak out.

Dalaya Hooper and her mother, Dawnetta, have publicized what Dalaya went through. It turns out, she received a flood of texts from her classmates, making fun of her over her skin color. Instead of letting the situation get her down, Dalaya shared what was going on with her mother. Together, they decided to share these texts to Facebook in a post. Now, the post has over 8,600 shares.

Among the cruel insults made to Dalaya Hooper were bullies telling her to go back to Africa. In addition, the other kids were telling Ms. Hooper that she really is from Africa. Even worse than that, there were some of the children that told her she stayed in the oven too long. The oven comment was meant to imply that she was burnt.

Now, Dalaya Hooper is receiving the support from the area. The town of Pittsboro, North Carolina, has invited Dalaya to light their Christmas tree. All of this began after Hooper was bold enough to tell her mother what was going on.

    What’s wrong with people these days, being so mean and disrespectful.

    Young lady I’m English and white (supposedly). But in reality, going by modern classifications conventions, I’m African English. Go far enough back in time (50.000 years) and my earliest ancestors were the same colour as you are. They walked out of Africa long before your ancestors did and their level of Melanin disappeared, due to less sunlight. And here is why:
    People with darker skin have more melanin, more pigment, in their skin and this prevents the short wavelengths of light, the Ultraviolet (UV) Radiation, from penetrating deep into the skin. It also means the skin can produce vitamin D in suitable levels.
    So if you live in more northern climes where there is less sunlight, so for example in the UK, then it’s much better to have pale skin which allows more sunlight to get into your skin and more vitamin D to be produced. Vitamin D is great for strengthening bones. It prevents you from getting diseases like rickets which would be very selective against a population if you were living in northern Europe.
    Take no notice of what ignorant uneducated people say…you, and they, are just Human Beings living on the same planet, under the light and warmth of a star. If that star did not exist, neither would we. Stay strong young lady. PB (London).
