A young black boy was bullied until he committed suicide.
Seven Bridges, 10 years old, hanged himself after a long time of built up melancholy and depression.
Seven Bridges had a bowel condition which made him undergo 26 surgeries. He forced to wear a colostomy bag to school.
Bridges was victim of a constant bully and racism, where his schoolmates would constantly call him a “N*GGER”.
His mother Tami Charles told a story of how her son was once bullied so much, he was throttled by the kids as they called him a “N*GGER” making fun of the smell of his colostomy bag, while riding a school bus home from Kerrick Elementary School in August 2018.
After the attack, which was so brutal Bridges’ mother said he almost passed out, and she had to take him to the hospital and get him a CT scan.
Charles said despite the attack, the school officials failed to file any paperwork documenting what had happened.
Tami Charles has revealed plans to sue the school, she condemns them for failing to take action against the bullying, saying
You all failed my baby.
We found that the school system had a lot of holes and a lot of inconsistencies with their policies about bullying.
They stood on the verbal message, the lip service of zero tolerance, but they did not deliver.
Seven Bridges committed suicide by hanging himself in his home after growing extremely sad and depressed in the time leading up to his death.

Charles said Seven was a miracle child that she received, when she was constantly told that she was unable to conceive a child.
JCPS spokesman Renee Murphy said a ‘full investigation’ was being launched into Seven’s death.
‘We are devastated by this.
‘Our hearts are breaking for this family. The school community is hurting right now.’
