My Son’s Bullying Story on New Series: Beyond Bullied

Kheris Rogers was bullied for her dark complexion, but she didn’t let bullies convince her she isn’t fabulous and beautiful. She turned a negative into a positive by creating her own clothing line called Flexin’ In My Complexion.

Now, in her new Beyond Bullied series on Soul Pancake, Kheris and her family speak with other kids who have emerged stronger after being bullied. The first episode features CJ and his bullying story. Watch how he went from being bullied by his best friends at school to serving as the youngest grand marshal in Pride’s history.

 

Kheris also surprised CJ with a trip to LA to meet top makeup artist AJ Crimson, who shared some advice and words of encouragement with the kids (and let them play with makeup).

    Kheris and CJ, you both rock! Ignore ignorance and bigotry. Those are both signs of a limited intelligence. Keep in mind that people fear what they don’t understand. And that’s THEIR problem, not yours. Hugs to you both. You have a hundred supporters for every naysayer.
    And to your families, Thank you! You are what families are supposed to be like.
