As racism and bullying among young people continue to exist across the country, several viral videos have shown what happens when Black kids and teens fight back against the bigotry they've faced. Although some people celebrate Black boys standing up for themselves, some wonder if violence is the right way to combat their bullies. 

Two recent videos in particular have gained much traction on Instagram. In both clips, a Black child or teen physically fights their alleged bully. 

  1. Snoop Dogg shared on video with the caption "Black history month, when the bully gets bullied"
