What is the connection between bullying, bigotry, and hate?
Bullying is defined as repeated harmful verbal, physical and/or online actions with an imbalance of status, power, or strength. Relational bullying includes exclusion, gossip, and spreading rumors in order to hurt or shame a person. Bigotry is when a person or group is subject to negative prejudice based on race, gender, sexual orientation, perceived sexual orientation, appearance, social class, and disability. Since much bullying targets people who are different, it is often caused by bigotry. In a continuum of negativity, bigoted attitudes can lead to serious acts of hate and violence. That is why NIOT seeks to address all forms of bullying, bigotry, and hate.
