A noble gesture

What does a deputy mayor do when couples refuse to be married by him because he's black? He organises a mass wedding of 700 couples who will be married by him.

Belgium is a funny small country of many cultures and languages.

However, the worst expressions of right-wing tendencies and populist racist agitation is amongst the Flemish-speaking North of the country.

Thankfully, the silent majority rise up to participate in such occasions though it is scary how somehow, the political representatives of these rotten groups seem to gain enough votes to be a national nuisance.

We suffer some of this nonsense in the Netherlands too, but not as bad as it has become in Belgium.

I read about that in the papers. It really sucks that racism is being practiced in this day and age in certain villages.

On the side, that mayor really is cute though. LOL!!
