I am here for racism unfortunately. Yesterday I was on the last train to Rosendaal, going to my refugee camp. I was on a place in the middle of the train, it was next to the silent section and it has blue seats. While I was going with my friend there, a train officer has come. He was a blonde guy, maybe 30-35 years old. He looked at my face like he was disgusted. I felt a bit irritated because of those manners. He asked our ticket to check. I gave my NS flex card. He took my card with his two fingers like he wants to show that it's disgusting to touch my card. He did something with my card and took my friend's card. My friend has blue card. It took longer than mine. He said nothing to us. He looked at our faces with a disgusted impression and went on. We both felt so irritated. He made me feel like I don't deserve to be there. But there was no problem about my ticket. I always pay my debts properly and don't do something that I shouldn't do. We got out of the train in Breda and went to our shelter. After my train ride, I received an email says that I used 1st class section and I am fined because of this. I called customer service to object this fine but they asked me to prove that I wasn't on the 1st class section. How can I prove that? It's almost impossible. If I knew that he has fined because of this, it would be easier to prove that I wasn't on the 1st class section. But that rasist guy said nothing about the fine and did this on purpose even though I wasn't on the 1st class section. Why do I go in the 1st class section at the night train? I am not that stupid to do this. There were other passengers there but he didn't even check them. Why are you doing this? It's not a big deal to pay this fine but I don't deserve to be treated like this. That ruined all my day. And he got what he wanted. If I didn't have to, I wouldn't live in a country that sees me as I don't belong there. Racism hurts a lot, believe me. I try to forget and live my life but it always occurs in somewhere. It hurts deeply, and I can't imagine how I can live with this anymore. I am sick of it. I hope that rasist guy is not proud of what he did. It still hurts to remember. So I won't keep writing. I hope nobody would experience something like this anymore. Nobody...
