Some kids turn to parents, friends or teachers if they’re dealing with bullies. But one local girl went right to the top for a little help.

Student Ziainey Stokes from West Philadelphia wrote a letter to President Obama about bullying in January. The 11-year-old was fed up with being a victim after several years of abuse at two schools

The president could provide some concrete assistance to such unfortunate child victims of the system by lending his voice and influence to the promotion of vouchers, school choice and homeschooling. Too many children are sentenced by the educational system to a 13 term under conditions more cruel than many minimum security prisons.

Dear Bullied:

First, you take all their money "because you deserve it", then you simply put your boot to their throat...because they deserve it.

It worked for me and Rev Wright for years so you came to the right person.

Yeah. Warms the cockles of my heart. I don't think this president knows what his job is.

She should watch a Chuck Norris movie instead and get “inspired” to bust some bully heads.

When my kids were in school, I couldn't believe all the crap they were subject to. I did home school them for a year. But yeah, since the inmates now run the system, it was special.

This is exactly what Hussein wants — take parents out of the equation and have everyone run to the government for all assistance.

Of course, since her parents gave her that horrific name, I can see why she’d take a pass when it comes to asking advice from them.

When this drama queen applies for a job using that name, her application will be thrown into file 13.

Y’know...Chuck started the “Kick Drugs Out of Schools” program, which morphed into the “KickStart” program, which teaches kids self-respect, respect for others, and self-discipline through karate. The program also teaches that violence is a LAST resort, used in defense only.

Busting heads is only appropriate when physical violence is forced upon you.

Comforting a bullied school child. The right level task for a community agitator.

In the letter, Mr. Obama thanked Ziainey for bringing attention to the issue of bullying.

“Your letter demonstrates a desire to change the culture of your classroom as well as your community,”
“You deserve a safe, engaging, and enjoyable classroom, and together we will strive to make this a reality.”

Creating a new federal office ?

Maybe she is getting picked on because her mother cursed her with the name “Ziainey”.

The 11-year-old was fed up with being a victim

Sending the president (especially this president) a letter that he's being picked on may suggest he isn't that fed up with being a victim

She’s fed up with being a victim? She better get used to it because it’s just preparation for her job at the NAACP.
