Not a big deal in Belgium.
I do not know if its a big deal in Belgium but from a personal experience i noticed a lot of xenophobia growing up in this country .
A big part of my own family is that way which is very conflicting for me and as a mixed person myself i had people not opening up and talking to me or plainly being mean till they heard me speaking in their own dialect, some of them even confessed they felt relieved i was no foreigner but that never felt as a compliment for me. :p Regularly i hear people talking about the foreigners that take their jobs or take their taxmoney,steal,cant be trusted and even worse i hear people cheer when a foreigner dies in an accident because "there's plenty of them" or "Its not one of us" or "those are worth less" .
I did go to an all white shool as one of the few colored kids there, i think 2 or 3 total and i must say i had a very hard time in my early years and only when i grew and could defend myself they turned into cowards and stopped bullying but a lot of kids back then had xenophobic tendencies probably partly inherited from parents.
I do not know about total statistic but from my own biased personal view i did witness a lot of negativity towards anything that looks or acts differently.Last edited by Immersiveunreality - on 03 November 2018
