'I don't feel like anybody is helping or cares': Heartbreaking video shows nine-year-old black girl plead for help because classmates 'kick and punch her' and call her 'Nutella' and 'servant'

Andrews says sometimes the bullies would call her 'Nutella' and 'servant'

  • Nasir Andrews from Washington, says she was bullied at her elementary school
  • Began when she moved to the school from Georgia last summer
  • Says bullies would often be racist, calling her 'Nutella' and 'servant'  
  • Her parents are in the process of sending her to a new school 

A bullied nine-year-old has asked for help in a heart-rending Facebook video during which she says she's been kicked, punched in the face and choked at school.

Nasir Andrews - one of 40 black children at a school with 343 students - from Bellevue, Washington, says the bullies at Ardmore Elementary School would also utter racist comments, calling her 'Nutella' and 'servant'. 

Her mother Chantey posted the video of Nasir narrating her experience using flash cards after months of telling teachers and the school administration about the situation. 

'Kids ran from me,' she notes in the powerful video. 'I don't feel like anybody is helping or cares. I want kids and adults know to my story. Bullying is real. It hurts for myself and other kids. Help change the ending.'

Heartbreaking video shows girl's struggle with being bullied

Nasir moved to the school last summer from Georgia, where she says she had many friends and did not experience bullying, KIRO-TV reports.

The fourth grader says at her new school, the kids would either eat her snack or throw it away. She says during recess, the kids would run from her.  One student even sent her a note with the words 'die, die, die', along with a drawing of a gun.

The bullies would also tease her for buying a reduced-price lunch and mock her continuously on the school bus, forcing her parents to pack her lunch and to drive her to school each day.

The children were not the only culprits, according to Nasir's account. An office worker once threw food at her, she says.

Amidst all this, Nasir says her teachers ignored her complaints.

'A student called me "Nutella" and I told my after-school teacher and she said it wasn't racist and she made me write the definition of racist,' Nasir recalls.

Nasir's mother, Chantey, says the school has been slow in taking action against bullying.

'Our fear is there is a culture that has been established at the school where it is almost OK for the children to exercise different forms of treatment and bullying and harassment,' she says.

'And there's not a conversation being had with them saying, "No, this is unacceptable.''

Nasir's father, Travis Andrews, believes the teachers mishandled the situation because they didn't see the 'broader picture'.

'I wish they would have paid more attention to the bigger picture,' he says. 

'I think a lot of the incidents were taken individually and handled individually and if it was more of a broader picture, and they were able to connect more of the dots, we would have probably stopped this earlier in the year.' 

The Bellevue School District released a statement regarding the video that has been viewed close to 800,000 times, since it was posted on Friday: 'We are saddened by the experience shared in the Facebook video you referenced.

'We are very concerned about the well-being of all of our students. We can assure you that district and central office leaders continue to work with the family to ensure that their daughter and every student at Ardmore is receiving the support they need. 

'The harassment, intimidation and bullying of any student is unacceptable. In the case you referenced, an investigation into the allegations has been in process.'

The Andrews are in the process of transferring her to a new school.

Ok let me get this straight she has a father and a mother but other kids punched and kicked her and they get away with it see that's why some of us should not have kids if you can't protect them whats your purpose if that little girl commit suicide the parents should be responsible the school didn't fail her the parents are the one who turns their backs and allow those bullies to get away with it, kick my child I will kill you and I don't give a f*** if you're a kid you will get the same that you give

They should have sued the school, I guarantee you they would have found out exactly what happened and expelled which ever kids were bothering her immediately!! white America only Respects Money and Power, that's it!!!! You don't have any of those, and they know they don't have to respect you or your family, and for that matter the Black people on a whole.

Welcome to racism in America, Trump style.
Comment by leah ashton on June 22, 2017 at 3:44pm

wow. what is wrong with this school and the teachers in it? making a child write the definition of racist helps her how? she told her they were teasing her, that should have been enough for the teacher to correct the problem. How would she feel if her child was being called "Fluff" and being kicked and punched? this is just crazy
