Sorry OP. I just caught that you are 13. That is a really sensitive age and jr. High and high school girls can be really cruel and jealous. I think if it wasn't color or race it would be something else they would harrass you about. You can't control what other people say only how u react to it and if they see they aren't getting to you anymore they'll likely stop.
Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it.
