Many of the hurtful attacks that girls experience – and particularly African-American and Latino girls – are delivered by persons within their own cultural background in the form of intra-racial bullying. They may be subjected to relational aggression from their families, friends, media and other ethnicities that are based upon stereotypes which society has perpetuated pertaining to their race.
This webinar will address the effects bullying and other forms of relational aggression have on African-American and Latino girls. Although relational aggression affects all girls, African-American and Latino girls, in particular, experience bullying in additional ways because there are more variables – such as skin tone, hair texture, accent and ancestral country of origin – which can be used against them to launch hurtful attacks. These variables provide additional ammunition which the aggressor uses to target the victims as well as to incite similar response approaches by the victim and bystanders. These responses are usually attributed to what is thought to be “acceptable” behavior within the community or culture. These factors contribute to African-American and Latino girls being disciplined more often for bullying/relational aggression situations than other girls – which impedes their chances of experiencing academic success.
In order to help these girls, educators must first understand what they are going through. By understanding and acknowledging their plight, teachers, counselors, administrators and other school staff can begin to address the issues they face and help them form a positive self-image, develop healthy relationships and alter their understanding of what a true friendship is.
