Very sad situation and hopefully he wont let these experiences effect his productivity and mental well being

The mother is white. 

this is why im not too keen on IRR.
if you are not equipped to be able to explain racism and how to deal with it, then dont procreate with people of color

I don't know if the father is still around, I didn't see him on TV.
In any case, so many IRR out here in my city (not just black/white), I actually mentally cheer when I see a black/black couple walking downtown. It's actually becoming a rare occurence in the downtown core!

Placing a black child in a school where they're the only raisin in the group does more harm than good. I was in a mostly yt school from 7-8th grade after a transfer from an all black school. My self-esteem took a severe nose dive. Constant questions about "Why do black people.....?" Touching my skin and hair like I was a petting zoo, Being called the N-word......Were there not any mixed  or all black schools in the area they couldn't send him too? I mean, really?? Sleepy

I was an only black child in school up until high school in canada (then there were two of us)

I had a relatively pleasant experience no overt racism but that could be because I went to catholic school and there were enough ethnic whites that may have had their own identity problems to focus on me?

There was a lot of talk about the melting pot vs salad, respect for the original peoples, different cultures, culture days, very early on

I think the school should take the responsibility to educate, reinforce inclusion/cultural awareness and punish any bullying kids quickly and severely 

It is ridiculous to isolate the child with a supervisor and a separate bathroom instead of dealing with the bullies

Same here. Except I did experience some degree of marginalization from the other kids.  I got the N word. There was only one other black girl and we always hanged together even though I'm pretty sure we wouldn't have been naturally inclined to do so if it weren't for the fact that we were the only ones.

True you do need that first hand knowledge transfer about racism.

My parents, extended family, church, other black families instilled that afrocentric/jamaican pride

And also set the expectation that overt racism was completely unacceptable and how to call it out, and how to watch out for subtleties and how to counteract them, I use those skills to this day

I would not have done so well without that... so yes I agree mixed kids with a white primary parent would be at a disadvantage

Same here. Which is why I didn't come out of that experience mentally scarred. I knew those were just stupid kids. And I didn't get beat up or anything, I could take care of myself. But I got some verbal abuse or just straight rejection so we kept to ourselves. I had white friends in the neighborhood I lived in though (although even there, there have been situations. Thinking of a half italian/half french canadian I had who got robbed and all of a sudden, police turned the suspicion on to me!) High school was much better for me. More diverse.
