Family Of Gifted Black Girl Suing School District For Bullying

The family of an academically-gifted black girl in Columbia is suing Richland School District One after they said she was bullied and no one helped her.

A federal civil rights lawsuit filed this month alleges administrators at Hand Middle School refused to intervene when students reportedly taunted the girl for, quote, "acting white."

 The abuse reportedly happened between late 2015 and this past spring. The school district declined to publicly comment on the lawsuit.
