The children's support service Childline has reported a surge in the number of children contacting them about online bullying.
More than 1,400 young people said they were experiencing racist bullying, up 69% on the previous year.
The charity's founder Esther Rantzen said these findings are a wake up call.
A common theme was for young people to be called a "terrorist" or a "bomber" and to be told to "go back to where they came from," Ms Rantzen said.
The 24-hour phone and online support service also reported number of contacts from suicidal young people increased by a third in a year.
Deputy Commissioner Craig Mackey told members of the Greater London Assembly that the force has seen a rise in crimes linked to online harassment and bullying.
This follows a number of high profile cases of "Twitter trolling", where users of the site are bombarded with threats and abuse.
Mr Mackey said: "We're seeing about 1,500 additional offences reported to us per year. I think it will rise as people become more aware of this."
