We aren't sure why they would do that. It may be that they are making racially charged jokes, it could be that they are looking to get a reaction from you, or they may simply be trying to impress their friends. If it was simply a miscommunication, we don't think you would probably be upset enough about it to write this website. If it continues, there are a number of things you can try to get it to stop.
#1-Ignore them. Slap on some headphones and just let them say what they want. Sometimes if they see it doesn't bother you, they will simply stop.
#2-Tell them to stop. Just say could you please drop it calmly and seee how they respond. They may be taken aback because you stood up for yourself.
#3-Sit with a friend who can stand up for you. Sometimes bystanders can be stronger against bullies than the people they are targetting. Ask a friend to stand up for you and it may do the trick.
#4-Tell a teacher, the bus driver, or prinicipal. You deserve to feel safe going to school. If you need, let an adult know what is going on who can address this situation.
We wish that there was one simple way that you could do to stop bullying, but it is a very complicated problem. But the more tools to have to get them to quit, the better luck you will have.

They are immature and probably trying to impress their peers with what sounds like nonsense to us, but hilarious to them. In junior high kids haven't matured much from elementary school, they think they are cool because they are in middle school. My advice is don't show it upsets you because it will just fuel them. Even if you ignore them, they might not stop, but just let it go, its not worth the time or the effort.
