I have always thought that people who "bully", do so because of their own insecurities, and mistakenly think by doing so, it makes them look better. It does not. Other's "hate" on another, simply because of racism, or a person's looks being different than their own. It is rapidly becoming one of the biggest problems this Country has ever encountered, and unfortunately, unless more people step up, it will get worse before getting better. Educating, and ENFORCING a no tolerance law would go a long way in slowing this issue down. A bully is simply a coward.
they are insecure about themselves and need someone to rag on, or they have a bad home life, or if they see someone or something they don't like or don't understand they think they have the right to share their opinion on it, but i think people need to grow a thicker skin because it's only getting worse
People all react differently towards each other. If the bully is upset, (has problems at home, bad grades, overweight, et cetera) then he or she might take it out on other people. It's hard to find the bully just thinks it's fun to hurt other kids' feelings for no reason. Bullies pick on easy targets.
