  Celebrate Diversity
New York Daily News - City News - Daily News Exclusive: Ed Dept. eyes charge kids bullied, 1 beaten: "City education officials are investigating the claims of a pair of boys from Oklahoma who moved to Brooklyn to experience diversity, and instead say they got schooled in racism and violence.

Mom Lisa Brown, 33, told the Daily News she relocated her family from their small Oklahoma town so her husband, a Brooklyn native and social worker, could more easily find work and her sons could experience different people and ways of life.

Brown enrolled her sons, Sloan, 12, and J.T., 13, at Ebbets Field Middle School in Crown Heights. But when the boys, who are white, showed up, their mom said, they got a chilling indication of what was to come.

'Oh my gosh, we are going to have fun this year,' a security guard muttered, according to Brown.

Things quickly got worse.

Sloan was beaten mercilessly, called 'cracker' and 'white boy,' and chased into traffic by his new classmates, his family said."
