An 11-year-old boy on Newfoundland's BaieVerte Peninsula is the victim of racism and extreme bullying, according to family members who say they're all at their breaking point. Grade 5 student Torrence Collier is the only black child in the town of Westport, which has a population of about 200. The Colliers moved back to Westport from Saskatchewan about a year and a half ago, and say that soon after, the bullying began, along with physical assaults. "I feel kind of scared," said Torrence Collier. "And I ask myself, 'Why does everybody hate me so much?'" 'I feel horrible about myself. And sometimes, I wonder if they're right.'- Torrence Collier Heather Collier said her son endures daily, endless slurs and threats at St. Peter's Academy in Westport. She said comments have included the N-word, as well as other insults like "rapist." When asked by CBC whether anything has been done about the Colliers' complaints, the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District said in a statement that it has held diversity and anti-bullying presentations for all students at St. Peter's Academy. The school board said that a director will be sent out to speak with the Colliers in the coming days. School like a prison, mom says Torrence Collier said the insults are tough. "I feel horrible about myself," he said. "And sometimes, I wonder if they're right. If I am all those things that they call me."
