The article “Torrence Collier, 11, says he faces racism, extreme bullying in Westport, Boy who is only black child in town uses separate washroom, under constant supervision while at school” written by CBC News on June 11 2014 explains that racism and bullying due to the color of your skin is still in strong force today. The article involves a young 11 year old boy who lives in a town with a population of 200 where he is the only African American civilian; he is repeatedly bullied at school. The mother does not believe that moving to another area would even make a difference at this point; he is monitored constantly during school hours and does not even use the same washroom as the other students use. The article concludes with the deputy mayor of the Newfoundland town explaining how she did not know of these allegations, and that this town has never discriminated before, until now.
