Racist violence in Belgium

This August 2018 video says about itself:

Black Teen Pushed Onto Rail Tracks by Racist Belgians

Police have arrested a 35-year-old White man for pushing a Black 15-year-old onto the tracks at Aarschot station. The teen was racially harassed, spit on and pushed by the Belgian trio. The Black teen is seen thrown on railway tracks by racist Belgians who say they were “drunk and on drugs”, and defending himself.

Luckily the railway staff noticed the incident with people on the tracks and stopped rail traffic. The male suspect, a 35-year-old from Aarschot, was arrested while hiding in the bathroom of the station.

Black tourists to Europe often bring home an unwanted souvenir: racist abuse. The rise of xenophobia in many European countries is due to the wave of African immigrants fleeing the countries that have been destroyed by European colonialism. Now there are many reports of racist violent attacks on Black tourists who are seen as immigrants taking over.

Another, 26 August 2018, video, censored by YouTube, used to say about itself:

Black teen thrown on [railroad] track by drunk racists – defends himself

This 15-year-old boy was racially harrassed, spit on and pushed by a drunk Belgian trio. He defended himself after he was pushed onto the train tracks.

This happened at a train station in Aarschot, Belgium.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

In Belgium, there are shocked reactions to a video showing that a black 15-year-old boy is being attacked by a man and two women. After an altercation, the boy was pushed onto the railway track. …

The 35-year-old man and two women (35 and 43) make racist remarks to the boy who was waiting for the train. …

The video was put online by a woman friend of the victim’s mother. …

The victim remains calm at first, but after the discussion has flared up, there are blows. The boy tries to defend himself, but he is pushed onto the trail by the man. He tries to get back to the platform as quickly as possible, but is then pushed back by the man. In the fall he pulls the man along onto the track. …

The man who attacked the boy has been arrested and is a suspect of “intentional violence and injuries with a racist motive”. The two women in the video were released shortly after their arrest.
