Michael Eric Dyson is blaming President Donald Trump for acts of bullying at his granchild's school in DC. Dyson, a Professor of Sociology at Georgetown University, took to Twitter on Monday to complain about a child bullying his grandson at a private school in an affluent area of Washington, DC.

"Why am I heading to my 6 year-old grandson's elementary school in affluent neighborhood in DC because a white kid called him a "nigger" & threatened to go get a gun & shoot him??? The kid not yet kicked out nor the police called ???
Welcome again to Trump's white racist America".

Some of Dyson's Twitter followers expressed sympathy for his grandchild's situation, while others reminded him that the child is 6-years-old and bullying was a problem before Trump was elected. One Twitter user told Dyson he was overreacting.

The late comedian Richard Pryor's grandchild is also being bullied at her school. Rain Pryor, Richard's daughter, posted an Instagram video complaining about the culture of bullying at her daughter's school in Baltimore City.

In the video, Rain said a group of children sent a text message to her daughter saying they wanted to kill her.

She captioned the video,

"Call To Action Against Bullying occurring RIGHT NOW at daughter’s school! I need accountability against bullying in our schools and my child’s school and I need it NOW!!"

"I am taking political action to shift policies around bullying. Baltimore City Public Schools WBAL-TV 11 Baltimore WBFF FOX 45 PARENTS AGAINST SCHOOL VIOLENCE @ Parent2Parent Network Champions Against Bullying PLEASE SHARE".

    Dump's bullying has fundamentally changed this country forever.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Is that what made them two black girls stomp that other 15 year old to death? Trump?

  • NewNew

    Um, I don't care how old the child is. If you are calling other children Nig?ers and threatening to shoot them then you need to be disciplined severely. They should also be looking into the child's parents because no child comes up with that ish on their own. Not one. They heard that ish at home or from people their family spends time with. 6 year olds have shot people before. This is a serious matter. Shame on those who think this man is overreacting.

  • therealashland

    Nope, it’s true. Trump has made it socially acceptable to be a bigot. My best friend, has two kids, one bi-racial and the other is white. They live in a lily white county and go to a school so small it’s k-12. The girl who is bi-racial is one of 2 in the entire school. Her mom has gone to administration countless times about her daughter being called the n word. Her son who is a 2nd grader was sent to the er after being assaulted by a 4th grader this week..

    This is a pro trump era, I blame that orange sob

  • Mielle Downey

    Trump derangement syndrome (TDS) is a neologism used by supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump to describe a reaction to Trump by liberals and Never Trump neoconservatives, who they say respond to Trump's statements and political actions irrationally and with little regard to Trump's actual position or action taken.

  • Mielle Downey

    imply put, Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) is a illness that hard left liberals, anti-trump conservatives, and progressives have. These are very hateful people who cannot have reasonable arguments or conversations about common sense issues. If you encounter someone with Trump Derangement Syndrome, we should go easy on them, they’ve been fed false propaganda and false fallacies. Counter them with “Love”!

  • Alextra Ballard

    Who taught this six year old the word N***er? Most importantly he knew how and when tew use it. I’m willing to bet if it were a black kid who had threatened to shoot someone,the cops would have been called and the child would have been led out in cuffs.

  • Mielle Downey

    Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) is a mental condition in which a person has been driven effectively insane due to their hate of Donald Trump, to the point they will abandon all logic and reason.

  • Mielle Downey
  • Kimocha

    Now see if this situation was reversed and it was a blk kid threatening to go get a gun & shoot a wht kid.... THEN the school woulda called the police AND CPS immediately before they woulda even called the parent(s)!... This is typical wht privilege BS, SMH!!!!

  • BythegraceofGodIcanexplain

    I'm with them against bullies.Take them "haters" to the hood. Take the bich out of them. You know what, you need bullies to know how great you are.

  • http://www.instagram.com/yeuphonic @yeuphonic

    So a group of kids text your daughter death threats and you wanna “start an initiative” and complain online?
    instead confronting the bully children’s parents that it is a crime or outright pressing charges (child school death is real) you ask those uninvolved to be accountable? Was bullying not real to you before? Smh. Ok I must have better maternal and legal instinct than these “parents” I’m out

  • TheOwley

    Bullying has been around forever. Be a kid in elementary school with glasses or braces or being too tall or too short and see what happens. That black teen that killed himself was likely bullied by other black kids. Black folks have bullied Dwayne Wade's son because he came out. The whole world has become more toxic. Christians are getting bullied and butchered around the world and no one is complaint. Social media is what it is. Please, let get real.

    This shit ain't new..wtf ya'll kill me

  • Li-Wright

    Dyson is not one of my favorite persons. Whenever I see him on TV I turn away. He has the name, but that's all because he says ignorant sensationalist stuff.
    Anyway, bullying and harassment has been going on since day 1. So you can't blame Trump. If Obama was in office and it happened, would he blame Obama? I doubt it. That's why I don't listen to Dyson.

  • Ryan

    Stop. Bigots are more emboldened than ever and are passing their ignorance on to their spawn. This is what trump meant about MAGA - will praise some random football player who wasn't even drafted first only because he spouted alt-right GARBAGE but remains radio silent about POC getting attacked verbally and physically. But they'll all get their day.

  • Li-Wright

    And that's why Trump is very likely to be re-elected. Because the Dems and liberals are eating their own....and making outrageous claims.

  • BythegraceofGodIcanexplain

    When people hate themselves they'll take it out on you. You remind them how less fortunate they are in looks, talent, with social skills that they are NOT blessed with. So they'll try to make sense out of their miserable lives by taking down another. If they don't succeed early in life in fulfilling their misery, they become full blown narcissus . They'll have people follow them with a false identity that is deep rooted. Then they will have money in wealth to show full power that will get everything distracted mixing lies with truth .

  • hi-liter

    You niggas are so damn ignorant in these comments. Of course bullying has been around for many, many years, HOWEVER, what IS new are children as young as 8 being killed by other KIDS, or CHILDREN as young as 9 committing suicide by hanging themselves and shit. No one gives a rats azz about DUMP just like he don’t give a fuc about None of you niggas who cape for him.

  • KcoolMuziq

    “Be a kid in elementary school with glasses or braces or being too tall or too short and see what happens.”

    It don’t even have to be that. U can just simply be too beautiful and good looking & get just as bullied , because the other kids like someone else just said here could be “unfortunate looking”.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    If he doesn't there will be a civil war because they won't want to give up power and of course Trump will encourage it.

  • Ryan

    Damn that's sad. And you got fools saying "well bullying's nothing new" - this ain't one kid pushing another kid on the playground. When the n word gets involved all bets are OFF.

  • TheOwley

    Yes, bullying is an unfortunate “rite of passage” in school. Kids either bully or are bullied. Some escape it. You got cliques, mean girls, restricted clubs. Kids' feelings get hurt these days over nothing or more egregious things and in some cases, they hurt themselves. Social media is out of control and people need to exit it for a while. I don't attribute this phenomena to anyone, it's all of us.

  • Phillybruh

    I'm so glad this parent and granddad are acting immediately to these nuts!!! And Dyson, because it Is Real.

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    Bullying has gotten out of control in general in the American public school system.

    I think right around the time of the Columbine school massacre, it was at National Emergency level, I feel a sympton social media.

    As social media has grown in popularity, it has gotten progessively worse, more shootings , grade school kids being jumped and killed and now suicides of children of grade school.

    I dont see teachers and school adminstrators taking an active lead in nipping these issues in bud. In my opinon they are the first line of defense. They see these issues brewing first hand.

    I think there should be some intensive agressive training on spotting and stopping it by school administration.

    They should be held accountable for ignoring these issues - meaning putting there careers in very serious jepordy.

    Further, social media seems to be completely off the hook-how sway, and for how much longer.

    Has anyone done a survey on how many DEATHS or incidents of extreme bullying have been BROADCAST LIVE on social media. Take a guess anyone.

    Anyone remember the movie Running Man, watch it again - perfectly predicted on how murder, death and mayhem broadcast live is hypnotic and PROFITABLE.

    Why to black folks think they will escape racism in expensive zip codes and affluent schools , guess again. A lot of people are trapped in 3 dimensional thinking and reality the respect and value things and money more than people. Many are insecure and put others down to feel better but clearly their emotionally unbalanced. Trump l suspect is just doing the bidding of the puppet masters America has never done right by black people .

  • Wile E. Coli

    I have been watching him since the 90s on CSPAN, news shows, etc. He's a true racist and should be an embarrassment. Candice Owens cleaned his clock recently. I thought that a was awesome. He's always the most pompous person on any show and when he was in a debate with Jordan Peterson he was easily made to look like a fool. He doesn't even know the meaning of some if the 4 syllable words he pukes out, while trying to sound 'intelligent'.

    His grandchild should go to school in the hood, the er will replace with a “a”. I want happened between him and his wife.

    I was called a n-gger for the first time age 6 and for the 2nd and last time age 19. President Trump was not President. My big Sister was bullied by Black Americans calling her "a cross the water muthaf-cka" when she came from Jamaica age 9. President Trump was not President. My Mom told her to sharpen her pencils and stab them. One day they chased her walking home and she jumped on one and stabbed her in her forehead. They called her crazy but no more bullying. The point is: Racism and Bullying existed before President Trump and it will after him. Teach your kids to defend themselves physically, mentally and emotionally. It's a jungle out there.

  • Yui

    What did Rain say that was so bad, Sandra? ?

  • rockstar2142

    We need to start from the top. It doesn’t help when the highest guy in office is a racist & a bully.

  • rockstar2142

    Yeah but he isn’t helping by being a racist & bully his damn self. He should be leading by example & showing a better way.

  • Simone

    Recently, Cardi B. said she doesn't want to be kids' role model. It should be their parents. President Trump is an elected President, not kids' parents. Parents need to teach their kids to fight through martial arts, boxing or sheer animalistic instincts. And tough up mentally. Who cares what others think of you. Bullies love weakness.

  • rockstar2142

    I agree celebrities aren’t role models but come on don’t you expect a little more class from someone who is the highest elected official.

    Why would he when Democrats are making infanticide legal? God rebukes you and all of your liberal sycophants to quote Cumo on killing baby that have a brain and a heartbeat "The quote-unquote late term abortions is like 1 percent for the life or health of the mother. It is the federal standard." Killing babies is now the right of the mother. I have read that no where in my bible. GODless sociopath liberals are a stain on humanity. And also making it legal for murderers and rapist is now a liberal agenda. Throw the baby out with the bath water should be a liberal motto.

  • dontgetblocked

    So bullying started when President Trump took office? I was called niggr many a time at the white schools I attended, walking down the street, in a mall. The first ones to use the word niggr is US...giving everyone permission to use it...especially in rap songs.

  • Malificent

    This is true! These racist are getting comfortable and coming out because he allows them to.
    It’s happening at my childs school too. But it’s the teachers who are feeling empowered to show their racist feelings. I’m changing the school to an all black Christian school for 4th & 5th grade and then she can go try a diverse one again. This school does absolutely nothing for black history month, has no black teachers but had the nerve to celebrate cinco de Mayo!!
