are there really 2 belgiums?

Sunday, March 27th, 2016

cnn has a feature article about the 2 societies in belgium, one dominated by immigrants from the north african region. the article fails to include information about people who have successfully assimilated into belgian culture who are doctors, lawyers and small business owners. in jcvd (an abbreviation of jean claude van damme–the muscles from brussels), you get a peak at the underbelly of belgium. the film begins with 2 belgians of north african background talking about the representation of brown people in american films.
