Here’s the story of a 16-year-old boy who has been harassed for years because his name is Osama. The interesting thing is that it’s not the students who are harassing him, it’s the teachers.

“The students were more understanding than the teachers. The teachers are the ones who called him names — bin Laden, terrorist,” Osama’s mother, Suad Abuhasna, told Kirtzman. “One of the teachers told him not to bother to come to class because no matter what he did he’s not gonna pass'”
