In recent years, bullying has become an international epidemic that's been coupled with a devastating rise in suicide by those victimized by their antagonizers. The issue has become subject to intense scrutiny by the media, where we've learned that Bullying is not blind to gender, race, or age, as exemplified in the recent case of Karen Klein, the bus monitor. For the latest set of visuals by Seattle's Fearce & BeanOne (of Dyme Def), the emcee/producer duo shed light on the issue by painting a picture of the physical and emotional hardship of a bullied student who feels that his only way out is by taking his own life.
