Aaron, 9, ‘bullied to death for being white’. Family blames Asian yobs for suicide
clear

From the Sun and the Daily Mail  

THE devastated family of a nine-year-old boy who hanged himself say he took his life after racist taunts by Asian bullies. Aaron Dugmore — thought to be one of Britain’s youngest suicides after bullying — was found in his bedroom after months of jibes at school, they claim.

But despite complaints to the school, where 75 per cent of pupils come from ethnic backgrounds, they claim nothing was done to stop the bullying. Aaron joined Erdington Hall primary in Birmingham last September after the family moved nearby. But Kelly-Marie, 30, and stepdad Paul Jones, 43, noticed a change in him from his first day.

Paul said: “He became argumentative with his brothers and sisters, which wasn’t like him at all. Eventually he told us that he was being bullied by a group of Asian children at school and had to hide from them in the playground at lunchtime.

He said one kid even said to him, ‘My dad says all the white people should be dead’.

”Kelly-Marie claimed: “He was even threatened with a plastic knife by one boy. When Aaron stuck up for himself he said it’d be a real one next time. I went to see head Martin Collin a few times, but he only said, ‘You didn’t have to come to this school, you chose to come here’.”

A spokesman for the school, rated unsatisfactory by Ofsted, said that Aaron had 'settled in quickly'. Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the youngster's death.

 Emergency crews, including paramedics and police, were called to Aaron's family home in Erdington, Birmingham, earlier this month.

He was rushed to hospital where doctors desperately attempted to revive him but he died the following day from a suspected cardiac arrest.

According to the Ofsted report the main languages of the 75% non British element at the school are Urdu, Murpiri (spoken in Kashmir) and Punjabi. A lot of Sikhs speak Punjabi but I'll bet my bottom dollar these children were not Sikh.
