Don't Fight Back. DaNeisha, age 10.

DaNeisha’s slogan was “Don’t fight back.” In her poster, the bully says to the victim, “You’re ugly!” and the victim says, “You’re uglier!” [Then the bully asks, “You want to fight about it?”]. DaNeisha explained that this is something that one should not do when being bullied. She believes that it is better to walk away, or realize that the bully is just saying things to try and hurt you. I asked DaNeisha why she included rain clouds and rain drops in her picture. She said that it was because when you get bullied, you cry.—Andrew Alexander (Kalamazoo College student).
