A little girl is traumatized after three white boys reportedly attacked her during recess on the school playground. They reportedly called her “ugly” and “attention-seeking,” said she should have never been born, and cut off her locs. According to her parents, it took Amari Allen a couple days to admit the attack even happened, as the boys are in six of her classes and she feared they’d retaliate.
The Monday afternoon racist attack at the private Immanuel Christian School—an already controversial school where Karen Pence, the second lady of the United States, teaches art class part-time—has “destroyed” the Allen family, and they are now seeking legal and administrative retributions. Amari’s mother, Cynthia Allen, told The Daily Beast that the family met with school officials on Thursday morning to demand the three boys be removed and updated policies be put into place to ensure “this doesn’t happen again.” Allen also said Amari filed a police report.
Amari’s mom says her daughter is “surviving” but “terrified” …She has not been able to sleep. And she is strong, I can’t imagine if this happened to somebody else.”
