Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Everyone Should Watch This, but specially white middle class Americans!

This film is horrifying because it's a true story about what happens in parts of America. I went through bullying about my skin color when I was very young . I am a teacher, and I can tell you this would never happen without DIRE consequences in ANY of the schools I taught at because I and all the other teaching staff would have gotten kicked out for raising the hell these horrendous allowed behaviors !!!! Absolutely shameful! How little humans have evolved in all this time!

Excellent information on bullying. I think all parents should see this. Teens should see it as well, to know they are not alone and can reach out to their parents for help. Suicide is not the only answer. Parents just have to be willing to do whatever it takes when no one else will.
