in the year 2006 or 2007 I don’t remember well I took the train from Broadway to Nanaimo , I used to lived about 4 blocks away from the station. that evening I walked about two blocks down and two or three young men followed me from the station and insulted me for being black , I was told to get lost from here to return to Africa where slaves were . They hit me so hard and threatened me to hit me worse if the police was warned . I was told they knew who I am and where my house was located. They told me that if they see something strange around my house they will kill me . That experience was so bad that I end up in the hospital took exams in the face, but was never able to denounce . Today when I find this blog I realize that the situation would have been different if I had dared to denounce, those damn misfits are everywhere , and for someone like me who was fleeing the violence of my country was even worse . that period of time was so hard specially because I left a country where violence against women is at high levels, to meet these cowards here. I hate not having the courage to denounce , but now at least I can write about it.
It was very painful to see my face completely swollen I know time has passed and there is nothing We can do but I also know that, that experience was so traumatic that sometimes I still have dreams with them
