hey guys :( . at school there is this boy. he is ignorant to me. and whenever i don't even talk to him, he calls me a stupid egyptian. :'( . i don't know what to do. and then he would say "your stupid, you know why?...cause your egyptian. and it really hurts my feelings. and it gets me mad that he doesn't know what he's talking about. i don't know wheather to tell like the principle or someone that he is discriminating, (he will get in trouble) or ignore him (it really makes me feel sad, i am very sensitive, and i don't like being treated like that). and the funny thing is, is something i realized today...if someone is really mean to him, he doesn't have a comeback or anything like he usually does with me. he is prolly scared of african americans or something, cause he doesn't have anything to say to them when they say something. PLEASE, I NEED YOUR ADVICE. I NEED HELP ASAP! :'( :( >:(
lol tell him shut up your british or redneck lol or tell him why do u bother and care if im egyptian or arent u supposed to pay attention to ur own self
um, im sorry bigmak, but i believe this is not what he/she should do. we, as christians, should display christian behaviour and actions, as we resemble Christ.
ok if that boy is calling you stupid, WHY WOULD YOU BELIEVE IT? if he cant think of anything else, than he himself is stupid. IGNORE him... this happens to lots of people... walk away or tell him to leave you alone. he's caling you stupid becasue he's prolly stupid himself... no offense. but if he cant think of anything else to say, then he himself is not that smart. u sould ignore him or be like: got anything better and then walk away. thats what i remember doing when i was new to a school. and it worked for me,
see, i don't believe it. and i can't really ignore him because he will prolly start doing it more and more and take advantage of that (thinking that i don't have any comebacks or anything so i won't do anything) and start saying stuff about other things about me. i don't know......!!!! :'(
The best thing to do in this situation is to pray and tell the principal AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Back when I was in middle school, I used to be called "stupid Egyptian" and many other names that hurt my feelings. On my bus, three kids would constantly call me names and make fun of me. They would tell me to "go build a pyramid" or to "go back to my country", even though I wasn't born in Egypt. I ignored the kids for about a year and a half until I was fed up. One day as I was sitting at my lunch table, one of the three kids that was making fun of me came up and shoved a cracker in my face. I blew up, and punched the guy in his face. After the incident we got sent to the office to be questioned. When I talked to the principal, I told him that the three kids were harassing me and making fun of me for a year and a half. His reply was "why did you leave it to the last minute?" The principal called down the remaining two kids separately and when they came out of his office they were crying. That day all three kids and I got suspended for a day. I believe that America is a great country, and when someone bothers you, you can make it stop, but you must tell someone. The problem will not go away if you ignore it, because one day you will pop. If you ignore it, the anger will build up inside you and you will lose your cool. I shouldn’t have punched the guy, I should have told the principal and avoided all this unnecessary sin and conflict. Don’t ignore it and make the same mistake I did, because it will never go away if you do. I hope I helped.
Please forgive me and pray for me,
may god be with u
A Copt, whether through his/her pharaohnic roots or his/her glorius Church history, should never feel disadvantaged when it comes to history.
On the other hand, it seems that we are lacking a great deal in spreading the knowledge about our Church and our ethnicity. Most people are shallow in their view about the ethnic groups in the Middle East, thinking they are all muslims. For them, egyptians means muslims, and the hard core terrorist ones in them. Make sure that you, individually, make them know that you are christian. It will help and will ease your problems to some degree.
Use the rules in place to your advantage, as there are rules against abuse.
i don't understand what you mean by that
May god help u in ur decision
