Jordan Jackson, an 8-year-old boy from Louisiana, is hospitalized after getting beaten by white bullies when he stepped in to defend his sister.
According to Brianna Cox of the Atlanta Black Star (ABS), Jackson confronted several white bullies at Spanish Lake Primary School — one of whom was 13 — who were throwing mulch at his 4-year-old sister, J’Niaha. When he stepped in to demand the bullies stop throwing mulch, they proceeded to throw him to the ground and bodyslam him. One of the children told Jackson to “go back to the cotton farm” after assaulting him.
“My son, who understands the connotation of that statement because we’ve had those conversations before, was appalled, so he said ‘that’s racist.’ The child responded ‘why do you think it’s so racist? You do need to go back to the cotton farm.’ So at that point my son began to try to defend himself because the 13-year-old was pushing him down and calling him a baby,” wrote Jackson’s uncle, Cris Colbert, on a GoFundMe page he started on behalf of Alana Jackson — Jordan’s mother — to pay for her son’s growing medical bills.
“This isn’t Jordan’s first time being assaulted at the school, and in fact, it is the third incident he has had in a year’s time,” Colbert continued. “He was profanely spoken to by a janitor last school year and was physically assaulted in October.”
After the assault, the 8-year-old was sent to the hospital with a broken arm and a concussion. ABS also reports that Jackson now has post-concussion syndrome, which the Mayo Clinic defines as dizziness and headaches resulting from a concussion lasting up to several months.
