I am floored at your ability to present such a well-formed argument at your young age. And I’m sorry you have the personal experience to present it.

I remember taunts like those from MY childhood, and I’m almost 50. One of my best friends endured them (If I recall, they ended with “dirty knees, look at these!” Because I am white and have the luxury of remembering them without pain attached.)

I remember how they upset my friend, who, by the way, was Korean.

I am so sad to see how little things have changed. I sincerely hope your generation succeeds where mine failed. With bright minds like yours to lead the way, I am confident it will.
